“I am so delighted with my vision and that I no longer need to wear glasses to see.

I manage full shifts at work in the dry environments of helicopters and rapid response vehicles with no discomfort or difficulty. I hope this makes a difference to the care of my patients and I thank the teams of Optical Express for the excellent care that I have received.”

“Wearing glasses at work was really difficult due to the nature of the job. Over the past few years, wearing contact lenses in dirty environments, having to carry out water rescues in rivers and ponds and working in smoky, dirty environments has caused me quite a few problems with my eyes. It’s made it difficult to do my job. Just being able to see things that are more than a couple of feet away without glasses or contacts is quite amazing actually. It took a few days to get used to not having to put my contacts in or look for a pair of glasses in the morning. Now, because of the surgery, I know that at any time of day or night my vision is going to be clear. It’s a lot safer for driving, and even for just general day to day work when we’re around the station doing bits and bobs.”

“When I found out that I’d been successful and I’d have the opportunity to have laser eye surgery at Optical Express, I was really over the moon. You discover contact lenses and you think you’ve found the answer, but when you have laser eye surgery you realise how much discomfort and awkwardness you’ve gone through for so many years. The impact laser eye surgery has had on my work and home life is really significant. My self esteem and confidence has rocketed. I can work on a computer screen for however many hours I need to without getting headaches, and without having to take my glasses on and off.

It is life changing! If you are looking into it, it’s definitely something that you should follow through.”

Testimonials

Patients with great experiences

“Best decision I ever made.

I was very skeptical about laser eye surgery but a family member recommended optical express and I am now beyond grateful I went for it. I felt very comfortable throughout my initial consultation and all my options were made available to me. I have been back several times since my procedure and I am always greeted with a smile. I would recommend optical express to anyone.”

Gemma, Laser Eye Surgery

“I had laser surgery 4 days ago and I am delighted with my results.
I had a -8 prescription and less than 24hr after surgery I had better than 20/20 vision.
The assessment appeared thorough and on the day of treatment I felt reassured and confident my care was in good hands.
I felt no pain or discomfort during the laser treatment and was spoken through it all.
My eyes were straight away red (informed this was fine bruising), they still are really red but on the aftercare information it stated this is normal and will gradually reduce over time.
The eye drop care was explained well and have already got my post 1month appointment date scheduled.
I would recommend my treatment to anyone.”

J.Coull, Laser Eye Surgery

“All the staff were very experienced and efficient and answered any questions I had.
The whole eye laser process was very quick and comfortable and I didn’t have to wait long to see the consultant. I am very pleased I had this done and would recommend this to anyone.”

Jayne, Laser Eye Surgery
