Can I have PTK treatment on the NHS?

The NHS will pay for treatments which they consider to be an essential ‘medical need’. In other words, there is likely to be noticeable physical, social and mental benefits from doing so.

If the NHS feels that there is a medical need then they may pay for treatment although this is not guaranteed.

It is worth talking to your GP as he or she can advise you further about this. If he/she feels that you have a strong case then he/she may be able to refer you to a suitable clinic.

If you have private medical insurance then check with your policy, and with your insurer. This along with laser eye surgery in general may be on their list of exclusions, but it is still worth checking.
