Absolutely outstanding clinician. As I said on my feedback to Optegra in general, Dr Muen is so knowledgeable on his field that he made the whole process seamless. He was able to articulate every element of the procedure, risks and management of expectations. This gave me great reassurance throughout my laser surgery, including initial consultation and follow up appointments. Furthermore, he achieved spectacular results on my vision, exceeding my initial expectations. 10/10 for Dr Muen.

Mr Muen was fantastic! Highly skilled and very patient. After consultation with Mr Muen, I had lens exchange on both eyes at the same time, which was the right advice for me. He was very thorough in his explanation and answered all my questions. I have seen him twice since the operation, where he has continued to explain, and reassure fully. All the staff at Optegra are brilliant. I was very well looked after from the moment I stepped through the door. The equipment is state of the art, and I was reassured that I received all the necessary assessments both before, and after, the operation. I researched several organisations but definitely made the right choice with Optegra and Mr Muen.

From the moment I entered the hospital for my first consultation, I was looked after fantastically. Everything was explained to me, I was given time to ask any questions and never felt rushed or overlooked. On the day of my procedure, I was understandably nervous. I had no reason to be, everyone was reassuring, calm and kind. The actual procedure was so fast - However I was reassured at every step, nothing happened without a clear, nonjargon explanation from Mr Muen. He made sure to let me know there would be a lot of voices asking questions but to focus on what he was saying. Despite doing nothing other than lying still while the team did all the work, I was constantly reassured I was doing a great job and being looked after. The aftercare like all the other care was brilliant.
