Mr Julian Stevens Reviews
Very happy with the outcome of my treatment! Six months on and my vision is great and the dryness I had is practically non-existent. I would totally recommend Mr. Stevens – you could not be in better hands!
Great service – after a year my eyesight is perfect and I just wish I’d done it ten years ago
Absolutely brilliant – after wearing glasses for 25 years it’s amazing to now have better than 20/20 vision. Would recommend highly recommend.
Excellent LASIK outcome – Mr Stevens went above and beyond with a long term inflammation issue too. Very pleased with service of Julian and his staff.
I cannot recommend this treatment and Julian Stevens enough. The process has been completely flawless and my vision has improved from -8 to better than 20:20 in a matter of weeks.
The procedure itself is very quick and pain free. Before I had the treatment, I was told that the recovery period for this particular treatment takes longer than others however I only experienced a couple days of discomfort (namely watery eyes), and from there recovery was rapid.
Julian’s staff are also excellent; very attentive and helpful.
All in all a great experience and I would recommend to anyone considering the treatment.
Should have had this done a long time ago. All very professional and helpful. Information given to all aspects. My job as a golf professional means that my sight is so very important , this has made all the difference to my job and life itself. This is the best thing I have ever done regrading my health.
Julian Stevens was fantastic, helpful and very professional.
Thank you to Dr. Stevens for a tremendous job in correcting my vision. It has been 18 months now since I received my treatment and my vision is excellent. I was very happy with the entire process and always felt that I was in good hands.
The first week is painful, as it always is, but I have felt my vision getting better every week and it’s been wonderful since. No issues or longstanding problems.
I would highly recommend Dr. Stevens and this laser eye treatment!
I have naturally reduced vision and the iCl implants give me better vision than both glasses and contact lenses, My vision is the best it has ever been and I can’t thank Mr Stevens enough, this has been life changing. During the procedures I never felt a thing and they were done under LA. My vision is much better than when I wore glasses and contact lenses and I would recommend Mr Stevens to anyone who is thinking about having ICL implants.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I had LASEK surgery 6 months ago with Julian Stevens and it has been the most liberating decision I have ever made (not saying it wasn’t a difficult one). It’s an amazing feeling being able to wake up and go to sleep without having to worry about my contact lenses.
I was recommended highly to Mr Stevens by a number of friends and another surgeon who works in the eye industry, this made my decision to put my trust in him easier.
I had many queries about the surgery as it was not an easy decision to make. During my initial consultation Mr Stevens came across extremely knowledgeable and professional and answered as many questions as he could. His team were all very friendly and put me at ease. I had waited many years to have this done and I am so glad I finally did and am so thankful for such a great outcome. I thank Mr Stevens for the time and care him and his team put into my procedure and the all the aftercare. I would 100% recommend!
I had a Wavefront Surface Guided treatment in May. The whole experience went extremely smoothly – I was kept informed and assured throughout. The procedure was quick and painless, and Mr Stevens has an excellent conduct, meaning I felt confident and calm before, during and after this process.
The results of the procedure have been as good as I could have possibly hoped – my vision exceeds 20-20 and I can enjoy life in new ways.
