Celebrities who love their eye surgery with Optical Express

Vision correction surgery can be truly life-changing, turning the monotony of dealing with your glasses and contact lenses into the excitement of experiencing clear vision as soon as you wake up in the morning.

Optical Express has treated a number of high profile celebrity patients who are delighted with the results of their surgery and the many benefits it brings.  

  • Alex and Olivia Bowen

Alex and Olivia met on the 2016 series of Love Island, coming second in the competition. They were the first couple from the show to get married, and have established themselves as one of the strongest couples in reality TV.

Despite their new-found fame and public profile, both stars have opened up about their struggles with confidence and their personal insecurities about glasses having worn them for 15 years and 12 years respectively.

Post-laser eye surgery, they were able to enjoy a blissful wedding without having to worry about contact lenses.

Alex said, “It sounds like such a cliché, but it really does change your life.”

  • Fred Sirieix

Fred’s best known as the friendly French Maître d who greets nervous dinners on Channel 4’s First Dates.

As a restauranteur, customer service consultant and TV presenter, his eyes are regularly subjected to continuous focus, from reading scripts and menus, to checking his emails and using his laptop for work, resulting in eye strain. Fred began wearing reading glasses aged 43 and found that it became increasingly difficult to continue work without them.

Fred’s enjoying how ‘super’ his vision is, post-surgery. “My sight has improved day by day and my vision is a lot brighter, I can see colours I have never seen before and everything in so much detail – like the X-Men!”

  • Dawn & Ashley Ward

Dawn and Ashley live the high life on ITVBe show, The Real Housewives of Cheshire. The pair, who are husband and wife, best friends, parents, colleagues, and reality TV royalty, decided to make a change to their lives and get lens replacement surgery to improve their vision. Tired of feeling frustrated by their deteriorating eyesight, and the lack of confidence that came with it, Dawn and Ashley knew it was time to sort it out.

Since having their procedure in Manchester, Ashley says their future is bright and that “the difference between my eyesight before and after was like night and day.” Dawn agreed with her husband, saying “I cannot believe I wasted all these years and hadn’t done it sooner. I’d recommend lens replacement surgery to anyone who could have it done. It’s just life-changing.” It looks like Dawn and Ashley’s latest joint venture together was a success.
