At James Laser Vision changed my life. I have been fully dependent on thick glasses and contact lenses my entire life, and had been told By 3 or more surgeons that due to my young age and very high prescription, (+6 along with a slight astigmatism) that surgery for me was not an option. Dr James Ball was polite and friendly from the get go, he agreed to do the surgery with no fuss to my astonishment! He was confident with his equipment and expertise and so was I. I had my surgery just after new year 2018 and literally said goodbye to a lifetime of bad vision, it makes me emotional. Now I can see in such detail I couldn’t achieve with glasses or contact lenses! I spent days smiling looking at raindrops or the hair on my arms and all of the fine details I had been blind to. I will be able to see now until my eyes degenerate with age in around 30 years and you can’t put a price on that. I’m now due with my first baby and can’t wait to see every detail of his little face, I appreciate my eyesight every single day. Thank you!!!
Cannot recommend St James Laser Vision or this surgery enough. Mr Morrel was so kind and reassuring and the surgery itself was very simple and straight forward. It has been life changing and I will never take perfect vision for granted. Best decision I have ever made. I would urge anyone who is thinking about it to do it !
I had outstanding service from my consultant Mr. Andrew Morrell. The rest of the staff were also brilliant – very professional, efficient and caring. I went from a vision of -5.75 and -5.25 to almost perfect vision. My left eye still has a very slight prescription but not enough to warrant wearing glasses. As an active person who likes to run and walk outdoors, it has changed my life. The extensive and attentive follow-up for over 12 months afterwards was also brilliant.
I had my surgery under the care of Mr Morrill and simply cannot thank him enough for his unbelievable commitment and care. I suffered with dry eyes as i worse contact lenses for 20 years daily. For 18 months I was advised not to have surgery until my tear film had improved. After I stopped wearing contact lenses completely for 3 months I was able to undergo surgery. Mr Morrill knows exactly what he is doing and advises you properly every step of the way so you are fully aware of the procedure and how your eyes will heal after surgery. The after care I received was amazing Mr Morrill saw me straight away after I was experiencing irritation he changed my medication and prevented me from getting any infections. I would highly recommend him and can say this was the best thing I have done.
Brilliant result my eyesight is better now than it ever was with glasses and contact lenses. The staff at St James were really re assuring, and the after care superb. I would highly recommend this clinic – life changing best thing I have ever done!

I couldn’t recommend this clinic enough. The initial consultation was very thorough and all my questions were answered.
I was treated by Mr Ball. Despite my nerves he put me at ease and talked me through the whole procedure.
My aftercare has gone fairly smoothly. When I had some concerns about eye dryness and discomfort and turned up at the clinic unannounced,Mr Morrell was able to see me and reassure me. I was given cream and drops and my eyes were much improved.
Yesterday I had my 2 monthly check. I can almost read the bottom line of all the eye charts and my vision is better than it ever was with glasses or contact lenses. I am booked in for another appointment in October 2017,but can call the clinic at any time should I have questions.
I have already recommended the clinic to several people at my work!
Thank you to Mr Ball and the whole team for your expert treatment and for guiding me through the whole process so effortlessly.
An excellent result, so much so that I now take my new sight for granted, it\’s as if I\’ve never worn glasses.
Fantastic, caring, friendly service from St James’ laser vision. Very thorough with information & answered any question (no matter how silly).
Medical procedure was quick, pain free & I saw results within an hour. Best decision I made!
I recommend the surgery but you have to have it at st James laser vision as their medical care is just st brilliant.
Very well looked after from start to finish.
Every question answered and never rushed.
Excellent service and would highly recommend.
I was extremely short sighted and this has completely changed my life.
Had lasik surgery at the beginning of June due to having astigmatism, from day one I felt comfortable with the staff everything was explained any questions i had were answered fully felt completely safe.the procedure lasted 15 mins for both eyes never felt a thing the surgeons reassure you throughout leaving you feeling safe and calm. Could see straight away the difference had been amazing!! Only had it done 4 weeks ago.Would highly recommend st James laser vision. Thank you
From the moment I stepped through the door and spoke with the first receptionist on my assessment visit, to saying goodbye to the second receptionist I met at the 1 month check-up, my treatment by the St James Team was, without exception, professional, collaborative and a pleasure.
I have worn contact lenses since I was 18 to correct my short sightedness. I put them in first thing in the morning and taking them out was the last thing I did at night. Even during extensive periods of travelling with work, on long distant flights wearing contact lenses for me was never a problem (I never went out in my glasses, they went hand in hand with pyjamas and chill out days at home)…until, in my late forties, I couldn’t see to do detailed close up things e.g. hand sewing and was finding myself taking my lenses out and putting my glasses on to watch the television at the same time which seemed crazy (and back to front because at this age I should be putting reading glasses on to sew)…I went to St James expecting, if I was suitable, to have both my eyes lasered to correct my short sightedness at the expense of then having to wear reading glasses (which without my contact lenses in, at this point I didn’t actually need). The optometrist was so pleasant and after checking my vision, and taking measurements of my eyes suggested that I may be a candidate for Laser Blend Vision (St James is one of the few UK clinics that offer this technique – the laser algorithm are different to correct the vision). The consultant surgeon Mr James Ball discussed it further with me, including what it would mean as my eyes continue to age.
The surgery was painless (again the nurses and technicians supporting James Ball were so friendly at putting me at my ease), my dominant right eye was corrected for distance and my left eye was left as it was. The next day I went back (19hrs post op) and had 20:20 vision. For 48hrs I had a sensation similar to be light headed. One week later my combined vision took me to the bottom of the chart (better than 20:20 and certainly better than anything my glasses or contact lenses had achieved over the years). I still had a conscious perception that each eye was overlaying a differently focussed image, although clearly the overall vision was excellent. At the one month check, my brain has completely adapted to my left eye seeing close up and right eye distance. I didn’t have the 3 month check as my healing and outcome was without concern at 1 month and I was discharged.
James Ball saw me at every visit, nothing was too much trouble including sending me details and follow up emails should I be concerned about anything. The best outcome for my eyesight was his only concern.
There is no sales team at St. James, and no assumption that I would go there to have the surgery (or even approach to book a second appointment) just a handshake on my way out and a comment to ask the reception for the cost if I was going to consider it, but after my assessment visit experience I wouldn’t have considered going anywhere else.
Don’t expect plush surroundings though…the Unit is in St James Hospital but very close to the entrance of the Chancellor Wing so convenient.
