Leading the way in refractive surgery
The Optical Express Group was founded in 1991, specialising in the provision of general eye care. Today, with almost 130 clinics, Optical Express has grown to become a leader in the refractive surgery industry.
We invest in the latest technology.
Our expert Surgeons use the same technology that led NASA to approve laser eye surgery for its astronauts.
More than £400 million has been invested in state of the art clinics and technologies. We use advanced femtosecond and excimer lasers, which are incredibly precise and accurate, so that we can provide our patients with their very best results.
We give back.
As the Group continues to grow, so too does our enthusiasm about making a positive difference to local communities and further afield, committing to a wide variety of charitable and community programmes. This ranges from charity fundraising events throughout the Group’s network of clinics and stores to long-term commitments and partnerships with various charities and good causes.
