After wearing glasses and contact lenses for over 35 years, I decided it was time for a change. I’d wanted laser eye surgery for years, ever since I started playing football but was always too scared to go for it.

Even at my first consultation I was still unsure as to whether I would go through with it but the staff at the Optical Express clinic in Aberdeen were fantastic and answered all my questions easing any doubts I had.

I am delighted I have had the surgery and would 100% recommend it to anybody who is thinking about having it done. I only felt some slight discomfort during the treatment and the surgery itself lasted only 10 minutes.

The results were instant and two hours later and I was back home watching golf on TV. At my aftercare appointment the following day, I passed my eye test with flying colours which allowed me to drive home!
