The staff and surgeon at Visualase, Bolton were excellent, very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The surgery itself was excellent, quick and painless, nothing to be worried about. The aftercare was brilliant. I would recommend laser eye surgery at Bolton without hesitation.

Had the treatment in June 2014. I couldn’t see 2 yards infront of me clearly without glasses before the op. Now my vision is perfect. No more glasses. Massive confidence boost aswell. Very helpful and informative. Would recommend. The doctor and all the staff were very helpful and made me feel at ease all the way through the process.

Thank you Visualase

I have recently had laser treatment at Visualase in Bolton. All the staff are excellent from the receptionists to the surgeons and optomerists. You will not receive better treatment, care and results. I went from being very short sighted -7.25 and now after treatment over a couple of months I am 0 which means my eyesight is perfect. A big Thankyou to the team who have freed me from glasses / contact lenses and enabled myself to see clearly. Best Wishes Howard Pendlebury xxx

I went to visualase 6 months ago to correct minor short sight. I fully intended to have both eyes done and budgeted for this. After taking advice from staff at visualase they suggested I just have one eye done, as one eye was fine. This halved the cost to me and they said if I wasn't happy with the result I could always have the other done in the future. I went through with the surgery and am very very happy with the results 6 months on. Glasses are a thing of the past and going to the cinema, driving etc so much more better. Visualase could have easily talked me into having both eyes done which they didn't despite a lesser profit for them. All the staff were excellent and really friendly, especially Elaine on reception. I would have no hesitation to recommend visualase, especially if you prefer a more personal service rather than dealing with one of the larger faceless companies and their high volume low satisfaction methods.

Absolutely fantastic! From the very first time I rung up to book my initial consultation to now 2 weeks after the surgery, I am 100% happy with the service I received. I was so nervous on the day of the surgery but all the staff made me feel so comfortable and put me at ease. I am very happy with my 20/20 vision and I am loving life without glasses and contact lenses. I would recommend to visualase to anyone they are a brilliant team and I am so glad I chose them.

I recently had eye surgery at the Visualase clinic in Bolton. My eyesight was pretty horrific and although it has been stable for many years one eye recently changed and became -9 prescription. With the cost of lenses and frames a new pair of glasses, sunglasses and spare glasses were very expensive and even with paying for the thinnest lenses they were still 7mm thick which limited me to thick frames and I could no longer have rimless, so I took the decision to have laser eye surgery. I would without a shadow of doubt reccommend Visualse in Bolton. The service I received was second to none, from the inital consultation to the aftercare. On my inital consulatation I met the the surgeon who explained things in depth including the risks and were even very honest about maybe not acheiving full 20/20 vision on the first attempt due to my prescription being so high. There was no 'hard sell' unlike the other larger chains and no 'price sales', pricing and information was all very clear, and I felt very at ease being able to meet with the surgeon and not a sales rep. On the day I was very very nervous, but can honestly say it was a walk in the park! (I'm quite possibly the most squeamish, softest person ever!) There was no pain during or after the surgery and I was talked through every step. If anyone has been putting off surgery because they were worried about the procedure, then please just go for it - you'll be amazed at how easy it is! I attended my follow up appointement the following day and I was amazed to be told that I had hit 20/20 vision! There is still a little blurring occasionally but it will take time to settle. Thank you so much to the Visualase Clinic in Bolton. I have been pressurising my dad to come and see you (same prescription)! Truly amazing!

After a "5 month nightmare" being messed about by Optical Express who I originally went to for Laser eye surgery and which ended in a complete farcical disaster, I cannot believe how simple and easy everything was with Visualase,they were very friendly, very professional and very helpful, the procedure has changed my life completely, No more putting contact lenses in when your rushing to get to work in a morning, No more having to remember to take them out at night time (especially if you've had a drink), I would recommend Laser eye surgery with Visualase to anyone who is considering it- it beats wearing glasses and contact lenses hands down anyday, Many,Many thanks to Hilary and the team at Visualase in Bolton, Kind regards, Andy Clarke.

Absolutely fantastic! Elaine and Hilary are absolutely wonderful - really helpful, compassionate, friendly and supportive. They go the extra mile to accomodate any needs you may have! Dr Hynes was great, really tailor made treatment to my specification. Have reccommended to friends and family and will continue to do so! Absolutely no problems what so ever! Thank you to all at Visualase, Bolton!

I had both my eyes done in March 2012 at Visualase in Bolton upon a recommendation from a friend who had also had it done there several years ago, and I have never looked back. I was made to feel at ease as soon as I walked in for my initial consultation to having them done. The receptionist Elaine was lovely throughout and The surgeon Dr Hynes answered all my questions I put to him. The clinic was very clean and I got taken into the room and shown the Laser equipment which would be used on my eyes. On the day of my treatment I was very nervous, but Elaine, the two nurses and Dr Hynes made me feel relaxed. The treatment didn't hurt, slight discomfort but I could pretty much see near enough straight away apart from a bit of blurring. I know have 20/20 vision. The aftercare was brilliant, and I have had several eye tests and just recently been discharged, my eyes are still great and I haven't had any problems with them at all. I would thorough recommend Visualase as you Will be well looked after and you will love the results
