I can’t even begin to tell you the transformation that laser eye surgery brings about to everyday life.

The pure unadulterated joy of opening your eyes in a morning without having to search for glasses or rush to the bathroom cabinet to insert contact lenses is just immense.

I booked a consultation in February 2014 and was surprised at the speed in which the right surgery for you could be accommodated.

The consultation process totally puts your mind at ease and everything is so clearly explained. I left the consultation appointment feeling fully informed and with no hesitation that I wanted to proceed with the surgery.

Surgery day itself was scheduled for March 2014. Whilst it was naturally a little nerve wracking, it could not have gone any smoother. My surgeon was absolutely wonderful and the theatre staff are all amazing at making you feel totally relaxed and calm before the procedure begins. I expected there to be some discomfort during the procedure, but there wasn’t any.

The aftercare nurse was just a joy. Having had the procedure herself, she knew exactly how you felt and how to look after yourself whilst everything healed, taking time to explain the various stages of recovery along with what drops were needed and how often.

I experienced discomfort for about 24 hours after the procedure but bed rest and eyes closed were all that were required.

Within 3 days I had perfect vision and was giddily reading every road sign on car journeys, much to the annoyance of all my family members.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Optical Express to perform your laser eye surgery. In fact I did recommend this to a friend and earned myself £100 by doing so.

It has totally changed my life and something I wish I had done years ago. I no longer smile with just my mouth, my eyes say it all.
