I was told by optical Express that they head hunt the best surgeons and in David Teenan this would seem to be the case.Before the surgery took place I met with David Teenan who spoke me through the process about to take place and gave me ample opportunity to ask him questions.Once in his theatre David and his staff spoke to me throughout the procedure, which put me totally at ease.Although David is very professional, and regarded as one of the best in his field, he is very approachable and easy to speak to. Personally, I think de deserves a medal for giving me my sight back.
Mr Teenan took responsibility for my 'aftercare'. If you can call it 'aftercare'it was abysmal. Mr Teenan diagnosed the painful and frightening condition...Recurrent Corneal Erosion Syndrome...he prescribed medication and a follow up after 2 weeks. HO took 12 MONTHS ( yes you read it correctly TWELVE MONTHS) to send out the medication in full knowledge of the pain the RCE was causing!!!And the follow up?? 22 months after diagnosis...still no invitation to a follow up.And the moral of the story is : ONCE THEY HAVE YOUR MONEY, OPTICAL EXPRESS COULDN'T CARE LESS FOR THEIR PATIENTS' WELFARE.
I am very happy with my outcome after my surgery . I felt very well looked after throughout the process and I am so glad to be free of my glasses. A big thank you to Mr.Teenan and his team at Silverburn.
I am very happy with my surgery. The procedure was very stress free with no pain. My eye was uncomfortable for about a week afterwards and was then back to normal. Vision is great now and no need for glasses! Email me with any questions Kirsty
The best thing I've ever done. I was -5.50 and -5.75 so I was pretty blind and it still 5 weeks on hasn't sunk in that I don't need my lenses or glasses and that I can see perfect all the time. I am 40 and have been wearing glasses since the age of 8. Its taken me a while to get the courage to go for it but I am so glad I did. My surgeon was great. Mr Teenan and his staff just carry out the surgery with ease. It literally took about 10 mins top for both eyes. Its a lot of money for the time it took but the end result is worth it. I could have went somewhere else cheaper but I wanted someone recommended and I would only go to this surgeon as I had not heard one single bad one about him.
I found Mr Teenan to be very friendly and was very professional. He made me feel totally at ease from the point of meeting him. He took the time to ask if I had any concerns and about the procedure and explained what he was doing throughout the surgery. I did not feel any pain at all during or after I was very surprised, this is probably due to the fact that Mr Teenan is very good at what he does. As I did not live local I went to a hotel after the surgery to rest and found that my sight after a couple of hours was amassing. I went and had my post op. check-up the next day and everything was fine so travelled back home. Over the months my vision has gotten better and better and now enjoy the freedom of being able to see clearly without the need for glasses. Thanks for the freedom it is fantastic.
Very friendly and professional. Made me feel at ease from the moment I met him. Took time to ask if I had any concerns and was explained what he was doing throughout the procedure. I did not feel any pain. I was surprised, as I had heard that the suction cup on the eye was very uncomfortable. This I found to be completely untrue- probably due to the skill of Mr Teenan. I noticed a difference to my sight after a couple of hours and I had my post op. check-up the next day- I have better than 20:20 vision already. A big thank you Mr Teenan!!!!
Talked me through and explained each stage of the operation which helped to put me at ease. Friendly throughout with a very personal, calming approach. Overall a big thumbs up.
