4. Patient Reviews

There is always a chance of complications but if you are considering surgery discuss these with your surgeon. You can still change your mind at any point right up until you have the surgery!!

Mr Kazmi listened to my questions and answered with plenty of detail in easily understood terms

I had quite a high prescription beforehand and my measured vision is actually better than before with my glasses, so I am super pleased with the results.

I have a small amount of bruising in my Left eye which is from the clamp, but that is the only thing that is not perfect!” – Emma Robinson

 

Dr Kazmi is an excellent surgeon.

I recently had Lasek at Optical Express Liverpool and during my pre-surgical interview with him he was very friendly and informative, explaining all the risks and benefits of surgery and how these risks are avoided.

During the surgery itself he acted with such care and accuracy that I had no pain during my healing at all and healed very quickly with very good vision” – Sean

 

This doctor had the bedside manner that they should teach in Medical School – he was very open to listening to us, and answering any questions. Should another need arise for my daughter to be seen there again, I won’t hesitate to make that call.” – Rosemarie

I thoroughly researched the types of laser treatment available before considering surgery. Following my initial consultation I also looked into the experience of my surgeon which I recommend everyone considering eye surgery does.
I am very pleased with the surgery, I was extremely nervous but the knowledge of general staff put me at ease as well as the detailed discussion with the surgeon beforehand. The laser was applied for 29 seconds in one eye and 34 seconds for the other the total time in the theatre is about 15 minutes whilst they take measurements to track your eye (in case you move) and create the flap, after the laser they smooth the flap and put anti inflammatory and anti biotic drops in – then that’s it your done!

When you leave the treatment room they sit you in a darkened room and go over the aftercare regime again.

The anaesthetic wears off after about 30 mins from when it was put in. When it does wear off it feels like you have been peeling very keen onions and I kept my eyes closed and listened to audiobooks for the rest of the day!

There is always a chance of complications but if you are considering surgery discuss these with your surgeon. You can still change your mind at any point right up until you have the surgery!!

I have an 18 1/2 year old daughter who was streckin suddenly by severe headaches, so much so that she wanted her brain removed from her head to get some relief. Along with those headaches came significant visual changes. This all began June 18th, 2008, and while the hospitals here were more or less stumped by these symptoms, they, along with neurologists, opthalmologist and the pediatric did their best to figure out what the underlying issue was. After the pain was under control (after the 2nd hospital stay in 2 days), she began seeing a loca ophthalmologist who was following her medically in the hospital. He turned out to be a good doctor and who genuinely wanted to help. He referred her to a Rheumatologist. This Rheumatologist put her on Methotrexate and folic acid. The Optho doctor had her (at the time) on low dose prednisone. Things seemed to stabilize for a month or so meaning she wasn’t getting worse, but she wasn’t getting better either.Finally, in September 2008 I decided to call Mayo and see if they could help her. I got an appt for November28th so we went up there, not knowing what it was going to be like. The only thing I can say that I didn’t like about Mayo was that it was so BIG. The doctor she saw was EXCELLANT. For this 1 appointment, we were ther for 3 hours. The doctor had the bedside manner that they should teach in Medical School, he was very open to listening to us, and answering any questions.Should another need arise for my daughter to be seen there again, I won’t hesitate to make that call.
