I have worn glasses since I was about 9 years old, and have unfortunately never really got on well with contact lenses.

I was very nervous to have a consultation for laser eye surgery, but after several years of wondering what life would be like without glasses I am so glad I did!

The process was very easy – the people at Optical Express are so helpful and really put you at ease during every step of the process.

I had my surgery in April, and the very next day my vision was so good I could legally drive! I was amazed! I could suddenly do all the normal things in life much easier; waking up and being able to see, go swimming, play sports, even cook without my glasses steaming up!

Shortly after the surgery I had my first holiday abroad without glasses. It was amazing to be able to wear “normal” sunglasses without the difficulties I have had before with contact lenses.

Life is suddenly so much easier. I play sports and not only enjoy the freedom of worrying about playing with glasses on, but am able to play better now my vision has been corrected.

Best of all, my partner has recently proposed, and I am looking forward so much to being a bride without glasses! That really was the icing on the cake for me.

My only regret is not doing this sooner!
