Mr Eamonn Hynes Reviews
ALL the staff at Clough's Bolton were very nice and proffesional. I would highly recoomned both the treatment and particulary the service and after service offered by Cloughs' A very good experience !!
I had my right eye treated on Friday 19th Oct at 3pm. Treatment was painless and by Saturday morning my vision was excellent. Eye drops and care will needed for 7 days. Normally at my age reading glasses would be needed if both eyes were treated but I received advice that because my reading was OK without glasses I could have just one eye treated which avoids the need for reading glasses. I am delighted with the whole process from initial consultation through to treatment.
I just want to thank Hilary & Elaine for all their patience with me.They were absolutely fantastic.Would recommend the clinic to anyone thinking of having their eyes done.
I would highly recommend Visualase Eye clinic in Bolton for anyone considering having laser eye surgery .From first contacting the clinic in January 2011 I was treated with the upmost respect from all the staff from Elaine on reception to all the opticians before and after my treatment and especially Mr E Hynes who first checked my suitability and explained in full detail what would be involved in the surgery and the after care , on the day of surgery again all the staff were excellent in how welcoming and caring they all were in putting me at my ease .It has been the best decision I have made , after wearing glasses for over 40 years I can now get up in a morning without having to reach out first for my glasses before I could even go to the bathroom , wonderful!!!!
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.
I was really scared about having this procedure as anything with eyes really scares me!! However the staff at the clinic are wonderful! I had the Tamazapan but looking back I dont really think that I needed it. The actual procedure was absolutely pain free and I could not feel a thing! I was comfortable and felt fine and relaxed. About half an hour afterwards It started to be a bit uncomfortable but nothing like I had expected and I cannot really call it pain! I continued with the drops every 2 hours for the first 24 hours and all was well. I had it done in the morning and by evening I was watching the television without glasses!! It was really like a miracle as I had never thought that my astigmatism could be corrected and escpecialy so quickly! I would recommend Bolton Visualase to anybody as my StepSon and Neice have had it done there and also my husband's cousin and they have all been fine.Thanks a lot Visualase xx
very nervous but was made to feel at ease by the wonderful staff. The treatment was done quickly and without pain and the after service has been great. It has changed my life completely. I would thorougly recommend this treatment to anyone with glasses.
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
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 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!
