Why Choose Us?


Refractive surgery can be truly life changing, but it is a serious business, and it needs careful and informed consideration.  At Sheffield Vision Centre our consultant surgeons are both full time NHS corneal specialists, they live locally in Sheffield with their families, and they are well respected with reputations to maintain. Our small support team of Optometrists, Nurses and Optical Care Advisors are all salaried NHS employees; we have no sales targets and do not receive sales commission. We offer a friendly, no pressure service, in a relaxed but professional environment.


Factors such as your age, your spectacle prescription, your eye’s health, and your visual expectations can all affect your suitability for refractive surgery. At your Sheffield Vision Centre free consultation we will carry out a series of in-depth tests and examinations on your eyes. We will discuss all the options that are available to you and make sure that you understand the surgical procedures and also have realistic expectations of a successful outcome.  Please feel free to give us a ring and we will be happy to explain your spectacle prescription and give you some basic guidance as to your suitability. Both our surgeons are full time NHS consultants here at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and are they will be happy to respond to any more complex questions that you may have, in person by phone, or by email.
