After around 16 years of wearing a combination of both glasses and contact lenses, I decided to ‘take the plunge’ and opt for Laser Eye Surgery.

I can’t say that this was a decision made in haste, in fact, after making an appointment for my initial consultation, I rang again to cancel it!

However, I plucked up the courage to re-arrange and found out that my eyes were suitable for Advanced CustomVue Wavefront LASIK eye surgery.

As the day of surgery approached I became increasingly nervous. On surgery day I couldn’t understand how the rest of the patients in the clinic looked so calm. I had my procedure done in Belfast on a Monday afternoon. I went home, slept for around 2 and a half hours and woke being able to see – everything!

I even was back on air on the Tuesday morning telling my Northern Ireland listeners how I was feeling and how much of a miracle it was that I could see!

I would totally recommend Optical Express. The staff are very friendly and really put you at ease throughout the whole process. The aftercare service is exceptional and they really care about your needs as an individual.
