With 128 laser eye surgery clinics dotted around the UK, Optical Express is one of the most popular places to go glasses free in the UK. And based on thousands of independent reviews from happy customers on Lasik Eyes, it’s easy to see why.

The Newcastle clinic is easy to access by car or public transport – it’s a 15-minute walk to the nearest train station. And from the A167, you just follow signs for the City Centre and exit on the A186/Mosley Street towards Central Station.

You can receive free consultations on receiving laser eye surgery or lens replacement treatment, whichever a qualified surgeon deems the most appropriate option for your eye health. Patients appreciated hearing an opinion from someone they trusted, and you can also look forward to getting the eye tests you need.

2. Optimax

Best for: Clear prices

Optimax’s Newcastle clinic is another well-known laser eye surgery clinic in the UK. It’s even closer than Optical Express – a 10 minute walk from the nearest station, with plenty of amenities around.

Whichever type of treatment you were after (laser eye surgery or lens replacement surgery), Optimax’s fully qualified surgeons have a range of specialisms. They can even help with slightly rarer conditions such as cataracts, so you don’t need to make the journey up to London.

But above all, patients rate Optimax for its reasonable and transparent prices. Unlike many other clinics that will force you to do some digging to find out what treatment will really cost you, at Optimax you can know upfront. Being able to see clearly what costs lie ahead puts you in control when picking the right treatment for you personally.

3. Ultralase

Best for: Surgeon communication

Located right up the road from The Cathedral Church of St Nicholas, Ultralase’s Newcastle clinic is the third most popular place for laser eye surgery in this city. As you would expect, this clinic offers a choice between LASIK and LASEK refractive surgery, as well as lens surgery.

So, can I trust Ultralase? Well, the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCO) seems too, since all the surgeons are appointed by this leading body in eye health.

What’s more, the latest Care Quality Commission (CQC) found the staff here “professional” and the treatment “good” in its latest report. That’s a big thumbs up for Dr Samuel. But before you celebrate, it’s worth noting that the last time this clinic was reviewed was back in 2011, so you may want to do your own research to check you’re happy too.

There, you can look forward to meeting Jean-Pierre Danjoux and Saurabh Ghosh as your friendly neighbourhood surgeons. Whoever you choose, you can rest safe in the knowledge they will have been awarded the Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST) in Ophthalmology.
