My vision is improving all the time, eyes a little sore at times but to be expected. I do have a large black floater in the left eye. This will in due course be rectified by Mr Daya, when my new eyes have fully recovered. Otherwise extremely pleased. Thank you. I will definitely recommend Centre for Sight to all my friends and family.

One week after treatment and I could not believe how well I was seeing, the fact I no longer needed glasses after 25 years was incredible. I was surprised about how sore my eyes were immediately afterwards, so a bit of warning would do great. The surgeons at Centre for Sight are known as the best.
