My vision is perfect, and I couldn’t believe how quick and easy the procedure was – even for someone like me who hates anything going near their eyes! The care and skill of the surgeon and other staff was fantastic, and really put me at ease. The day after surgery, I had better than 20/20 vision, and the whole process, from the surgery to the aftercare, never got in the way of my training schedule!

I was always damaging or losing my glasses and it was a real hassle. I couldn’t wear contacts, and I really wanted freedom from specs, not just for rowing but for every part of my life. People would often tell me they’d seen me and waved and that I’d ignored them – since I couldn’t see them without my glasses on! It’s great that that doesn’t happen anymore.

It is brilliant being able to see perfectly, I hope my new vision will help me and the GB rowing team win more medals!

After seeing how quick and painless the whole procedure was, my only regret, why did I wait until now to have treatment?
