I had a really strong astigmatism with -6 in my left eye. Rob Morris operated on my eyes with one treatment and I now have better than 20/20 vision.I was very nervous and had waited a long time till the technology was available for my eyes. Sight is a precious gift and the difference in quality of life from having corrective eye surgery is amazing.I am very grateful and am happy to trust Rob with my eyes.Thank you, Tom
I had Lasik eye surgery at the Optegra clinic in Guildford to correct my short sighted vision as well as fairly mild astigmatism in both eyes. I had been wearing contact lenses for 44 years (yes really they had them even then) and finally my eyes rejected them by constantly going red. Rob Morris was great, he gave me all his time and attention to develop options (trying different correction for each eye to enable reading - I didn't go for that option, or backing off the treatment to better than 20:20 but not perfect, to minimise the use of reading glasses - I did go for that option). He performed the actual operation at 2:00pm and each eye only took 2 minutes including setting up. By 5:00pm I didn't need anaesthetic drops anymore and next morning I was able to drive.After 2 years I am still raving about it. I have fantastic vision, I don't have to use reading glasses that much and the fantastic thing is I can read the bedside clock at night...!
On my first visit to Optegra I was thoroughly impressed by their professional, helpful staff and after being guided through the process decided to go ahead with the LASEK procedure. Mr Morris and his colleagues made me feel totally at ease before and during the operation and the aftercare was exceptional. I would thoroughly reccomend Mr Morris and Optegra and am very grateful for what they have done for me.
I’m delighted with the result. Having worn specs since the age of five, being free of glasses at the age of 61 is truly amazing.
I am absolutely delighted with the results of my procedure. Mr Morris and everyone at Optegra Solent were so informative and reassuring and made everything as stress-free as possible. I am now recommending Optegra to everyone I know.
When I visited my optician for the regular glaucoma test she did my eye test and said she had not seen my lenses before. She was very impressed and said “You wouldn’t get those on the NHS”. I cannot recommend the treatment and staff highly enough! I would certainly have it done again!
Everyone concerned with the procedure was very attentive and helpful. I am absolutely delighted with the results and would certainly recommend Mr Morris to anyone. Thank you all at Optegra.
I have been thrilled with the results of these lenses. The staff were fantastic, very kind and helpful and Mr Morris is ‘Mr New Eyes’. I would have no hesitation in recommending the treatment at Optegra to anyone.
My lens implant surgery has been 100% successful and I can now miraculously see without the aid of contact lenses or glasses. I would recommend my surgeon, Mr Robert Morris, and the operation to anyone.
Impressed with the professional approach – unlike one of their competitors there was no hard sell and provide treatment which would have been unsuccessful in treating my condition. Admired their honesty.
