I was scared at what the results would be, and too frightened to have any one standing over me whilst surgery taking place. So I arranged to go into the Nufflied,Taunton. After seeing the consultant Mr Bates it was agreed to have my eyes done whilst asleep. One week later I went back for the second eye. I am delighted with the results and only wish every one in need of this operation could have their eyesight back and if possible free.

I had laser surgery done on both eyes in Mater Hospital Dublin Ireland. Mr Hans Soeldner is a genius and I have never looked back since. Can't thank this man enough.

Mr Kazmi performed laser surgery on me yesterday, I cannot fault him or the rest of the team @ the Glasgow Ultralase clinic. This morning I already had better than 20/20!!!Throughout the procedure he informs you what's going on and how long each laser has left. I experienced almost no discomfort during the actual surgery!

I had IntraLasik surgery exactly two weeks ago with Ms Ficker and am very happy with the results thus far.From my ~-4.5 in both eyes prescription, I now feel that my distance vision is comprehensively superior to any prescription lenses I recall, and my reading vision has returned to normal, although they do still get a little tired at the end of the office day.Ms Ficker prepared me for all of this and was kind enough, unbeknownst to a relatively shell shocked post-surgery me, to go to the waiting room and warn my girlfriend that I had a fair bit of sub-conjunctival haemorrhage (bleeding in the white of your eyes), which affects your nearest and dearest a hell of a lot even though you are blissfully unaware of it.She gave me exactly as much information as I (a biochemistry doctorate working in medical communications) wanted in the initial consultation, and I felt suitably informed and comfortable throughout.

My wavefront LASIK surgery was carried out at the Optegra Clinic in Guilldford in July 2008. Before deciding to go ahead with surgery, I had done a considerable amount of research into the available procedures and consultants. I had an initial assessment with Mr Morris and I was impressed at the variety of examinations, the quality of equipment and facilities at the clinic. Moreover, I was extremely pleased with the service from Mr Morris and the rest of the team, they were very knowledgeable, professional and friendly - a winning combination! I was extremely shortsighted (with a -9 prescription!) and was advised that the best results would be delivered using wavefront technology. Mr Morris was careful to ensure I did not have unrealistic expectations from the procedure and I fellt fully briefed before making the decision to go ahead. On the day of surgery, Mr Morris and the team could not have delivered a better service - I was put at my ease and felt totally confident in their abilities. Now, a week later, I am thrilled with the results - I have 20:20 vision! A true miracle! I could not be more thrilled.
