Having ICL felt like a huge decision because I've been wearing contact lenses and glasses for 30 years without too much trouble. But the idea of being able to wake up and the morning and see, being able to swim under water again, and being able to avoid tired eyes every evening was enough to get me to take the plunge. Mr Pilai reassured me about my decision, and Dr Helgason was amazing throughout, taking the time to talk through every single question I had and tackle all my concerns. The actual procedure and subsequent recovery was so quick and painless, both Dr Helgason and his support team were professional, efficient and reassuring. I am delighted with the results - better than 20/20 vision without any lenses or glasses.

Dr Helgason spoke to me before the treatment and answered any questions I had, he made me feel at ease straight away so I was very happy to go ahead with the lens replacement. I felt every care was taken during the treatment and after the eye operation. I was eager to get my second eye done the next day and now I am very happy with outcome especially now I have 20/20 vision. I would recommend the eye treatment to friends and family.

Very good experience. Been reassured each step of the way. It was good to speak to surgeon before the procedure. Nursing staff and technicians friendly yet professional in their work.

WOW! What a result, such an amazing feeling waking up in the mornings and not have to worry about glasses or contact lenses. especially being shortsighted with -14 eyesight it is such a massive improvement to have HD vision. After doing my research I knew that ICL surgery is the only surgery I'm likely to be suitable for but is very reassuring to know that my surgeon has had it done himself as well.
