I don't think I realised just how beautiful the world was.Gemma Baker, Payroll Manager, Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales
I could now see the world a whole lot clearer and this led me to take up photography. From starting off taking pictures of my family, friends, the dog and the cat, I'm out of the house taking pictures of everything: mountains, the sea, lakes. It's given me a passion that I love. After treatment, I initially felt overwhelmed with joy and I couldn't stop smiling. Nearly five years on, I feel more confident, more outgoing and before having laser eye surgery, I don't think I realised just how beautiful the world was.
