Extremely pleased with the whole procedure. 6 weeks on I am still amazed that after 42 years of wearing glasses or contact lenses, I can see clearly both distance and to read.Marvellous. Thank you.
It has only been a few days since my operation on the 23/02/11 but so far my recovery has been almost painless and quite speedy. Immediately after getting home from the operation I lay down in bed with the curtains closed and sunglasses on, closed my eyes and listened to my iPod. After about 3 hours I felt well enough to get up and move around and while my vision was hazy I had acceptable vision within 4 hours of the operation. It is now nearly 4 days later and I am at work (on the night shift) and my distance vision is very good (and getting better) although my near vision isn't so good at the moment, I was short sighted with astigmatism. The price of the treatment was £2700 (normally £3000) and this was for the treatment best suited to my condition which Mr Edwards the surgeon determines based on the extensive tests conducted at the consultation.All in all a very good service (without all the £xxx for this procedure, or £xxx for this procedure that most places sell) and looking forward to further improvements to my vision as my eyes recover.
