Common Questions About Our Laser Eye Fees
What Does the Laser Eye Surgery Price Include?
It’s not uncommon for standard prices to exclude what we think should be standard practices. Things like Wavefront technology, year-long aftercare, and a comprehensive initial screening.
For this reason it’s important to get a clear breakdown of what the costs include before making any commitments. At London Vision Clinic, all our Laser Eye Surgery fees include:
- Initial screening
- Wavefront analysis
- Ophthalmic exam
- Wavefront-guided treatment (if applicable)
- Contact lens trials (if applicable)
- Interim glasses required between High Profile treatments
- VHF Artemis Insight 100 VHFU Examinations (if applicable)
- Post-operative visits (standard regime)
- Supplemental exams carried out within a year of treatment
- 24-hour access to the surgeon by mobile phone
- All post-operative medications
- Any necessary enhancements within a year of treatment

What Does the Price Not Include?
As well as finding out exactly what the fees include, it’s important to check what they potentially exclude.
Our LASIK price does not include transportation, accommodation, or any off-site fees that may be necessary to ensure your safety during or after the procedure.
In rare instances, we may refer you to off-site examinations or tests (retinal examinations, orthoptist fees, post-operative optometric exams carried out elsewhere, professional opinions, treatments etc). These fees are not included in the treatment fee and are payable to the health care professional carrying out the service.

What Happens to My Deposit if I Decide Against Surgery?
Different clinics have different terms regarding their deposits, payments, and refund policies.
At the London Vision Clinic, if you make a deposit and subsequently decide against the surgery, the deposit is fully refundable, providing you have not had the ophthalmic examination. If you make a deposit and have had the ophthalmic examination, 50 per cent of the deposit is refundable.
