Correcting Boots laser matter

I am writing concerning the article “Boots Opticians sets its sights on laser treatment clinics” (MW December 14). The report was inaccurate in some important respects. Boots will be undertaking corrective laser eye surgery, using the LASIK procedure, for treatment of short sight, long sight and astigmatism. Boots will not be doing cataract operations at the clinic.

Our procedure uses an advanced form of LASIK treatment that combines a small beam laser with an eye tracker to give accurate results.

LASIK is an elective procedure and not available through the NHS. Patients with cataracts are treated through the NHS, although many people choose private treatment.
