My sister just had hers done(Ultralase) about a month and a half ago and so far so good.Very paseeld with all aspects of her treatment and follow up.My son's considering it but he's waiting on a 6 month later report before he commits.Ask about dry eyes afterwards,apparently this can sometimes be a problem.Good luck.
28/10/10I had my intralase wavefront laser surgery 48 hours ago. I am thrilled with the results already. My eyes are also looking pretty clear already. My surgeon was Susanna Boytha at Optical express in Edinburgh. The whole procedure was painless and very quick. The laser suite staff and my surgeon were fantastic and put me at ease. I would highly recommend my surgeon. Im so happy with the results, and only had some mild to moderate discomfort for a couple of hours after. People i have seen today can not believe it was only 48 hours ago as my eyes are looking so clear. My vision is very good also and i have not experienced any glare whatsoever. First class service!
Excellent surgeon and great results. I could read 2 lines better than 20/20 at my one week post-op check-up.
I found Miss Boytha to be very pleasant and friendly, totally put me at ease, as did all the staff.Miss Boytha talked to me throughout my procedure,keeping me informed as to what she was doing. I would recommend laser surgery to anyone.I have been left with better than 20/20 vision, fantastic.
Can't believe I'm writing this-just had lasik surgery today and feeling great went for the cut flap and honestly can't fault this (can't imagine what the laser cut would be like as have no probs. with the cut flap) Hoping to up date this every so often as good to know how someone gets on after the procedure. Susanna was so friendly as were all the staff. If you're thinking of this just go for I'm so glad I did (7hours later entering this while watching TV - no glasses, no pain, and next to no discomfort
I had my surgery with Susanna Boytha and found her to be wonderful. Very friendly and polite and put me totally at ease from beginning to end. My Mum has also been treated with Miss Boytha and my friend is booked in for her next week. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.
I had LASIK surgery (intralase + wavefront) last Friday in Optical Express' Aberdeen clinic. Ms Boytha was friendly, helpful and professional throughout. She re-checked my suitability for treatment and explained everything I needed to know beforehand. During the procedure (which took a matter of minutes) she clearly and calmly explained exactly what was happening at each stage, making me feel I was in very safe hands. The results are fantastic, from a prescription of -8.75 / -7.5 to 20:20 vision in a couple of days. Can't recommend this highly enough.
HAD MY SURGERY YESTERDAY MORNING AND EVERYTHING WENT SUPERBLY. THIS MORNING AFTER MY EYE CHECK UP I HAVE BETTER THAN 20/20 VISION SOMETHING I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER HAVE, MY PRESCRIPTION WAS 4.25 LEFT AND 4.00 RIGHT EYE. SUSANNA WAS BRILLIANT VERY FRIENDLY BEFORE DURING AND AFTER THE SURGERY. SHE IS A GENIUS WITH HER HANDS AND TALKED ME THROUGH EVERYTHING AS I LAY ON THE CHAIR. THANKS TO HER MY CONTACTS AND GLASSES ARE BANISHED FOREVER
I had my surgery yesterday morning and would highly recommend Miss Boytha to anyone. She was so caring and gentle and treated me as an individual. Any pre-op nerves were completely banished. She talked to me and encouraged me throughout the surgery and I felt completely relaxed. 24 hours later I have had my check up and have better than 20/20 vision. My husband has booked his consultation for next week and providing he is suitable, will be asking for Suzanne Boytha too. I cannot speak highly enough of her and her team. Thank you all so much!
