“A Life Changing Procedure.”

Written on: 21/10/2014 by oadeneny (1 review written)

After thinking about having Laser treatment for a couple of years and fearful of having my eyes treated I can honestly say it has been a life changing process. I can now read as well as drive, I can exercise and lead my whole life free without having to constantly think about having to wear glasses for most things. The whole set up was very professional from my first visit for an examination to see if I was suitable for the treatment. The day of the Laser surgery all staff were very… Read Full Review

“Loving life without glasses!”

Written on: 19/10/2014

I was able to wear contact lenses for a while but then problems with my eyes meant that I had to wear glasses all the time. I didn't mind too much until the warmer months and then every year I had problems with 'sweaty nose' syndrome and hassles with prescription sunglasses. I had been told (incorrectly) by my optician that I was too old for laser eye surgery (at 38), but when my slightly older friends had surgery I decided to take the plunge myself. I'll be honest and say I didn't enjoy the… Read Full Review

“Excellent! ”

Written on: 17/10/2014 by Krho (1 review written)

Had a great experience - Going travelling this year and this has enabled me to not worry about glasses with excellent eye sight. Also being diabetic the help and advice from the surgeon was fantastic. Overall I have never been happier. Such an amazing thing to be able to see amazing views and even the time from a clock on the wall!! I would advise so many people to give this a go. I was incredibly nervous to start with but one of the surgeons assistants puts me at ease straight away by… Read Full Review

“Great service and no more glasses”

Written on: 17/10/2014 by akLevesque221 (1 review written)

I'm really pleased that I had laser eye surgery, the operation was really quick and I was back to relative normality the next day and things just get better from there. As well as the obvious benefits of not wearing glasses I keep finding more, less obvious, benefits like being able to walk the dog in the rain and not getting rain drops on my glasses, being able to use 'standard' much more comfortable safety glasses at work, seeing what I'm doing while shaving and being able to put my head on… Read Full Review

“Laser eye surgery is the best decision I have ever made”

Written on: 16/10/2014 by ValeriaMcFarland (1 review written)

I had Lasik eye surgery at Optical Express four weeks ago it is by far the best decision I have ever made having achieved better than 20/20 vision. The whole experience & process was exactly as described by a caring professional team from the initial contact to my current aftercare. I have no negatives other than the usual nerves before surgery in anticipation of the unknown and the first few hours of discomfort & light sensitivity, not too dissimilar to being poked in the eye. This soon… Read Full Review

“I can see! ”

Written on: 16/10/2014 by nickycansee (1 review written)

I am pleased with my surgery and now have the freedom of not having to worry about contact lenses and glasses. For the first time in my life, I can wake up in the morning and I can see perfectly and can open my eyes under water when swimming at the beach. The process was explained well at the beginning and the surgeon was good. My eyes took longer than I expected to heal, (I think I was expecting an immediate fix) but I now have better than 20/20 vision after 2 1/2 months so am SO happy I made… Read Full Review

“Perfect view!”

Written on: 15/10/2014 by Markymark69 (1 review written)

As time came nearer to the day of surgery, I was rather sceptic and a little scared (of failure in some way) of what was going to happen but also from the fact that I couldn't have control of anything. The people of the clinic in Amsterdam were very professional and cooperative, they had all the answers to my questions! It was rather weird, lying in the chair looking up into the laser lights! It was 2 months since the surgery now and I have about 90% sight in my right eye. Left eye wasn't… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/10/2014 by Elena13051991 (1 review written)

I had both eyes lasered in August and my life has been changed dramatically. I no longer need to wear uncomfortable contact lenses and now have better than 20/20 vision.The whole process was simple and the customer service was brilliant. By the next morning I could see perfectly and had no pain at all. I also didn't experience any dry eye symptoms which I was very pleased with. At my monthtly check up I was told my vision was better than 20/20 and was still improving! I would recommend the… Read Full Review

“Do it now!”

Written on: 15/10/2014

I had poor eyesight for a number of years (-3.75 in both eyes) and always switched between glasses and contact lenses. As time went on and because I am quite active I substituted my glasses almost completely to wearing contact lenses only. However this made my eyes irritable, itchy and red. So one day I decided I’d had enough and booked an appointment with Optical Express through their website for a laser eye surgery consultation. I had to wait 2 weeks for an appointment that suited me… Read Full Review

“20:20 vision in 2014”

Written on: 14/10/2014 by Sparks392 (1 review written)

I had put off lazer eye surgery for a number of years and it wa the biggest mistake ever! The initial consultation was very quick and easy. You had the usual tests but it was all carried out by a friendly and knowledgeable consultant. The actual surgery was arranged for my convenience and every thing was clearly explained. The surgery was uncomfortable and the initial 3-4 hours after the anaesthetic wore off was a bit painfully. The next morning I woke to very clear vision. My eyes were dry… Read Full Review

“The result is great”

Written on: 14/10/2014 by Jeannette67 (1 review written)

The surgery was unpersonal and painful. The staff did their best but I felt uncomfortable and was afraid. The very small recovery room makes me not feel better. The two hours following the surgery were like hel, but the result is overwhelming! I am lucky that I did it and after a couple of days I had the optimal result. Some weeks of sensitive eys, couldn't have to strong light, but it was worth it!… Read Full Review

“Big decision but well worth it!”

Written on: 14/10/2014

I was very impressed with the level of pre and post Op care. Whilst the procedure was a bit nerve wracking, everyone was so professional and reassuring it made it much easier. Some things during the procedure freaked me out a bit and I don't think were properly explained beforehand - like the orange light which I couldn't always see. Afterwards you are told everything has worked as it should so that was a relief. My eyes took a few weeks to settle down but now my vision is perfect… Read Full Review

“I can play football again!”

Written on: 14/10/2014 by Cloe492 (1 review written)

I would completely recommend the treatment to anyone, it has helped me greatly with all aspects of sport, mainly football. I scored two goals my first game back so it must have helped! I found it relatively painless and the drops are a nice added extra. I still sometimes wear the sleeping goggles as they are comfortable and help me sleep! The only negative is that I wish I had done the treatment sooner instead of waiting until now to do it, for anyone sitting on the fence, I would say just go… Read Full Review

Had a great experience with optical express. My first appointment was fine, the staff were really helpful and answered my queries and was offered a range of surgery dates to suit. I had no problems on the day of surgery, if anything I felt my wait was too long to actually get onto the table but once my name was called, the time flew by. My surgery went well, and was not painful. At one point it was slightly uncomfortable but certainly nothing unbearable. I was allowed to go home more or… Read Full Review

Id been short sighted for afew years now and decided to go for the Laser eye surgery. I was fed up of contantly screwing up my eyes to watch TV, Drive and to see people. I can see everything now so clear and sharp its unbelivable. The surgery itself was quick and painless. Excellent service and aftercare. Life changing experiance. … Read Full Review
