Leading Vision Correction Specialist Sets its Sights on Scotland

Vision correction specialist Ultralase is set to open its third Scottish clinic, in Aberdeen, this New Year.

LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 10, 2010) - Ultralase Aberdeen, which will open on the 6th of January 2011, represents a significant six figure investment from Ultralase and the continued growth of its Scottish network.

The new clinic will be based in the heart of Aberdeen's city centre (252 Union Street) and hopes to replicate the success of Ultralase's existing Scottish clinics in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

With free no obligation consultations with a specialist Ophthalmologist, Ultralase will assess patients' suitability for vision correction and offer a range of ground-breaking treatments including Ultralase's latest laser eye treatment, Ultra Elite, which has produced the specialist's best results to date: 99% of those treated achieved 20/20 vision and 100% achieved driving standard.*

Jon Hughes, Commercial Director for Ultralase, said:

"We're very excited about expanding our reach here in Scotland and bringing our UK network to 31 clinics.

"We understand how important the decision to have laser eye surgery can be and with every new clinic, our life changing treatments become even more accessible, convenient and personal for our patients.

"Through our clinics in Edinburgh and Glasgow, we've already given thousands of Scottish people fantastic vision and freed them from their glasses and contact lenses. And, with this latest addition to the Ultralase group, we hope to do the same for many more."

Prices start from £995 per eye.
