I had my intralase wavefront laski treatment at Optical Express in the Merry Hill Centre on 09/05/2013 and it was the best decision ever. It has been only few days now and I would say my vision is 18/20 but it is improving with every single day. Surgery was pain free - the only bad moment was about 30 minutes after the treatment when my eyes were very wet so I could not open them. After 4 hours of sleep everything was absolutely perfect and I could see a lot more than before. Mr Alex George is a really good surgeon. His behavior was professional and friendly. He is not kind of person to make jokes with or talk about anything else than the treatment.Overall I am really happy.

I had laser eye surgery at Optical Express in the Birmingham Clinic in May 2011. It is the best investment I ever made. It has now been a month and I have 20/20 vision in both my eyes. My left eye took about a month to heal and now it has 20/20 vision just like my right eye.The surgery was completely painless, it was over in ten minutes, although my vision was hazy I could see better than what could with my glasses. After a good night's sleep the next day I had clear vision.I had no problems during and after surgery and I would recommend Optical Express to anyone thinking of going for laser eye surgery.My only regret is that I should have done it ages ago. I have £150 money off vouchers for Optical Express laser eye surgery, if anyone is interested or would like to ask me any questions about the surgery please email me on lotusflower_2007@yahoo.co.uk. Thank you.

I had lasik wavefront at by Mr George on 16 Dec 10. He is a very professional man. Not much on chit chat but he made me feel comfortable and explained everything both before surgery and also as he went through each stage.I had better than 20/20 vision the next day and now, just a few weeks later, my vision is even better and I have no complications (it took about a week for my eyes to feel 'normal' and completely comfortable again).Thank you Mr George.

Was treated by Mr Alex George on 7th December 2010 at the Bristol Cabot Circus clinic. Unfortunately, there was a mixup with the trains and Mr George was about an hour late (luckily I just went and did some window shopping). However, he was extremely professional and very efficient. Also a nurse called Carol, who works on his personal travelling team, was really friendly and comforting. Mr George kept me informed throughout the procedure which went quickly and was a success! Went back the next day for the 24 hour check up and they found a very small piece of fibre trapped between the flap in my left eye. Thankfully, Mr George was operating at the clinic and made time to see me. It was taken out without any fuss and feels much better. Vision is still a bit soft focus despite having 20/20 vision. However, should improve over the next few weeks! Thank you so much1
