Refractive Surgery (Laser Eye Surgery or Intra Ocular Lens Surgery) can be a tremendously positive and life-changing experience. At Sheffield Vision Centre we offer you a free assessment with a consultant Ophthalmologist who will examine your eyes and discuss in detail, your needs and your visual expectations.
The Surgeons are backed up by experienced hospital employed Optometrists, Nurses, and Optical Care Advisors. We are a unit that offers a relaxed and friendly no pressure service, all backed up by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
We are here to help you decide if Laser or Refractive surgery is for you and we hope you find the information on our website helpful: please don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or email if you need further advice.
All surgical procedures are carried out by South Yorkshire's leading corneal specialists, Mr Matthew Edwards and Mr Mathew Raynor; both full time consultant ophthalmologists here at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. We use state-of-the-art laser technology including the Zeiss Mel80 excimer and Visumax femtosecond lasers to provide the highest quality laser treatments available. The Carl Zeiss Visumax Laser means we can offer the ground breaking ReLEx SMILE technique for myopia (short-sight). A "flapless", or "keyhole" laser surgery technique.
Lens surgery is carried out using the facilities made available to Sheffield Vision Centre by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. So you are reassured that all proceedures are under the governance of a leading NHS hospital trust.
All profits from this service are reinvested directly to support core NHS services within the eye department.
