Thank you and to all your nurses.....

From the moment I stepped into the hospital in the Harley Street district, the care was fantastic. The whole procedure was explained to me thoroughly, all my questions were answered, so I had no worries. Of course I was a little apprehensive – like many, I am squeamish about eyes, but I am so delighted in the results. I have just had my final follow-up and I have better than 20:20 vision in both eyes, so can see perfectly short and long distance. It’s fabulous, my confidence is back and I feel like a different person!
