Laser Eye SurgeryAugust 2022
After living with the stress and hassle of wearing contact lenses for over 15 years, laser eye surgery patient, Greg reached the point where wearing lenses was no longer manageable, saying “I just couldn’t deal with them anymore”. Just 24 hours after his laser eye surgery at Optical Express, Greg couldn’t have been happier with his 20|20 vision.
Over an 18-month period prior to his surgery, Greg found that wearing contacts became increasingly “irritating” to the point where he couldn’t wait to take them out at the end of the day, saying “the contact lenses were just really getting me down”. Feeling uncomfortable with the appearance of glasses, Greg felt that he had no other option but to explore the possibility of laser eye surgery and so booked a free consultation at our state of the art Birmingham clinic to start his journey to visual freedom.
So impressed by the level of service given by Optical Express during his consultation, Greg then made the “immediate decision” to book in for surgery. He was put completely at ease at every stage of the process, so that when it came to the day of his surgery he was fully relaxed and prepared, commenting “I can’t fault the staff here, I can’t fault any of the process.”
Surprised by how quick and seamless the surgery procedure was, Greg remarked how he only spent around “7 minutes inside the actual theatre” and that this would be ideal for those who might find the whole process of being inside an operating theatre overwhelming, commenting “The experience from start to finish, from consultation has been fantastic”.
Prior to his treatment, Greg spoke to a number of people who had previously had laser eye surgery and claimed that “Everybody I spoke to couldn’t speak any more highly of it.” He is now over the moon that he went ahead with the procedure describing the results as “mind-blowing” and that it has been the “best decision he has made”.
A big travel lover, Greg is now looking forward to going on holiday without the extra hassle of contact lenses, and no longer having to worry about infections caused by sun tan lotion or from being in the pool. Calling the experience “life-changing” Greg says “I would tell everybody I know, if they’re considering it, to have it done”
