Mo Matthew


Hi, I’m Mo Mathew. I am 53 years old. I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon working for the NHS.

Tell us about your vision.

I suffered from a moderate degree of short-sightedness, myopia. My right eye had a prescription of -4.5 to begin with and my left eye was about -1.75 and I also had astigmatism, both eyes.

Tell us about your treatment.

I opted for the Lasik Advanced CustomVue with IntraLase. It cost me about £3,300 for both eyes. I opted to pay by direct debit because it’s easy to, to manage these payments, over the, over 12 months basically.

How do you feel now?

Oh, night and day. I don’t need glasses except to read. I follow my hobby of nature and wildlife photography without the need for, you know, stopping to wipe my spectacle lenses when they get wet or fogged up. I can swim without the need for glasses. You know, it does make a difference, a big difference.

What were you most surprised about?

What really surprised me was that the whole procedure, I’m talking about … to both eyes took less than 20 minutes. In fact my wife was surprised when I walked out because, you know, she had timed me going in and coming out and it was less than 20 minutes.

What is the best thing about having this procedure carried out?

Freedom from glasses. You need to be a spectacle user and a chronic one at that, to realise the benefits of laser eye surgery.
