I would like to say a huge thank you to Dr Arun Brahma and the rest of the team at The LaserVision Manchester Royal Eye Hospital.

Having worn glasses and contact lenses for most of my life (from the age of 6, now 46) the laser treatment has been life changing for me.

I did a lot of research and had a few consultations in different clinics and found I felt most confident, comfortable and at ease at Laser Vision even though the other clinics were cheaper.

The treatment I had was the LASIK, my eyesight prescription was +4 – longsighted and I have astigmatism.

I was told during the consultation what to expect and was fully explained the treatment. On the day of the treatment I was very anxious, nervous and was put at ease by Dr Brahma. After being prepped for surgery I was taken through to the theatre room where Dr Brahma and his team were there (radio on – relaxing atmosphere) Dr Brahma did the treatment and talked me through what he was doing. I did not experience any pain, slight discomfort; all in all the laser treatment took around 15-20 minutes. I was given eye drops, two nights worth of sleeping tablets and painkillers and aftercare instructions– what to do/not to do. After the anesthetic wore off, eyes felt gritty and uncomfortable and very sensitive to the light. I could definitely see the improvement of my eyesight that evening and the next morning it was amazing opening my eyes and being able to see clearly and not reaching for my glasses – Wow.

My sight has been fluctuating, this is to be expected – takes a few months for it to settle. I have been using eye drops for dryness. I will eventually need glasses for reading.

The aftercare check-ups have been regular –day, two day, week, month and now two months after, my vision is checked and I have chat with consultant.

In summary I am very pleased with the outcome of the LASIK – I no longer wear lenses or glasses – my eyesight is as good if not better than when I used to wear lenses though slightly less in the night time/when its dark but all in all great results and it’s all thanks to Dr Brahma and his team at The LaserVision Manchester Royal Eye Hospital – highly recommend it.

Friendly, helpful staff at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital who seemed very confident in their abilities. Got an excellent outcome with LASEK from moderate short sightedness and astygmatism to almost no detectable prescription.

From the very first point of contact to the point of being signed off, the whole experience has been wonderful. Every member of staff here are fabulous, caring, friendly. There is never any pressure to go through with any procedure, everything is clearly explained as to what treatment you have so you know exactly what is in store for you. They are very thorough with all eye tests prior to treatment, during recovery, and have regular follow up visits and eye tests/scans to make sure everything is as it should be. I cannot fault the care I have received from the team at the Manchester Eye Hospital. I would recommend anyone who is thinking about laser eye surgery to see the team here. They truly do care .
I am so happy with the results since my surgery. It’s great not having to wear glasses as soon as I get out of bed, or for driving and general daily life. My eye test show dramatic improvement and has continued to improve over the last few months as well.
I’m so glad I had it done, I’ve been thinking about having the surgery for a few years and finally plucked up the courage this year to do it.
The surgery itself is painless , yes a little discomfort afterwards but the results are well worth it.
Thankyou again to the whole team, I’m so glad I chose you for the procedure.

great clinic and very professional set up. This place is a hidden gem, they should advertise more and i only found it following a recommendation from friend's mother who had her lens implant surgery there by Mr Brahma. The Eye Hospital is a safe place to have it done and it is reassuring that i had the back up of the Eye Hospital if there was a problem. i have now been discharged by Mr B and he is due to see a couple of my friends soon. Slightly more expensive than the high street clinics but then you only have one pair eyes and you are a seeing top surgeon! So worth the money and I can finally wear my Gucci sunglasses for my holidays.

I was extremely long sighted (+11 and +12) with a very dominant right eye and a lazy, rather useless left eye. My optician was very pessimistic about my being accepted for surgery because of this, even though I was willing to take the risk. I wrote to Mr Brahma to explain my situation and he was more than happy to operate and insert toric lenses as I had an astigmatism. It was ABSOLUTELY amazing! I went back for my review yesterday and I now have 20/20 vision in my good eye. My left eye is good too although I was not expecting any miracles there! I know it wasn't cheap but ohhhhh the pleasure to wake up and be able to see!!! The whole experience was a joy from start to finish so THANK YOU ALL - ESPECIALLY ARUN BRAHMA!

I want to thank the team at Manchester Centre for Vision and Khalid Ikram for working his magic - he is a diamond!!! The professionalism and after-care has been second to none!!! I opted for the Lasek Wavefront surgery - the treatment was painless and quick.. I now have an extra 10 mins in bed and can wear make-up without any irritation.. The results have been amazing - better than the 20:20 vision that I wanted. If you are considering laser surgery then 'his the man'!!!

I am now 2 years after surgery and delighted with the results. I was very short sighted (-9, -6) with a complex prescription and I now have no need for glasses at all. I had the lasek procedure which meant a few days of discomfort, and I now have slightly dry eyes which is easily remedied by some over the counter eyedrops once in the morning. My only negative would be the difficulty of car parking at the site but that is a small price to pay for being at a centre with great clinical expertise and back up in case anything goes wrong.

I had this treatment approx 15 months ago and I have to say it is one of the best things I have ever done, it is worth every penny. The reason I chose the eye hospital is that they deal with eye complications everyday and I figured that if anyone knew what they were doing they were the ones and the only ones I would trust. Khalid Ikram was my surgeon and I have to say he answered all my questions honestly and promptly. All the staff at the centre were kind, polite and helpful

Manchester Centre for Vision at Manchester Eye Hospital Had lasek with wavefront on 29/8/09, it's been 1 week and my eyes are near perfect. I can see probably better than with my glasses already. I had the bandage lenses taken out last Monday, 2 days ago, and my eyes feel much better. My eyes are still a little dry but that's to be expected. I'm still taking the mandatory antibiotics and anti-inflammatory eye drops at the moment. I have artificial tears to provide comfort from the dryness for as long as I like. Although if it's only been a week and my eyes are this good, can't imagine needing them for very long. I researched laser surgery for years before actually going for it. I had consultations with MCV and one of the main high street clinics. I found there was an element of pressure sales at the other clinic but at Manchester Centre for Vision there was no sales pitch, just honest answers to questions. I was given all the options and I decided on Lasek. I could have had monovision which is a correction for my inevitable old sight but I tried simulating it with contact lenses for a bit and couldn't really get used to it. Apparently lots of people can get used to it. The surgeon, Khalid Ikram, did the surgery, him and his team were fantastic. All the way through the surgery I was told what was happening, I felt in safe hands. If anybody wants to know more about the actual procedure and recovery of lasek whilst it's fresh in my mind, you can ask me questions by emailing me via the link on this page.
