We are still trying to get a hold of October's winner of FREE laser eye surgery, we will keep you posted!
September's winner of FREE laser eye surgery has yet to arrange their consultation; we will keep you updated on their progress.
Charlotte Wright from Tunbridge Wells was randomly selected as the winner for our August competition of FREE laser eye surgery. After her initial consultation determined she was suitable, Charlotte booked her surgery in the Bluewater clinic in October. When we informed her of the prize she told us:
"It was on a Friday afternoon after a terrible week that I got the call to say I had won laser eye surgery with Optical Express. I was over the moon and pretty shocked as I'm not that lucky usually and had been plucking up the courage for years to go for it!
My consultation in Tunbridge Wells went really well and everyone was so kind and reassuring.
I wondered if, as my treatment was free I would get given the basic treatment, but I was prescribed Lasik with Wavefront for which I'm very grateful and excited! I had been quite nervous but Ugo, the Specialist Refractive Optometrist was brilliant, answering all my questions and I left feeling reassured.
I'm 39 and have been wearing glasses since I was about 12, and always hated the fuss that goes along with glasses and lenses - losing or breaking my glasses, having to put lenses in before I can wear sunglasses, always running out of lenses etc.
I wear my daily disposable lenses a lot because I find wearing my glasses a bit claustrophobic as I'm often aware of them. I'm reall looking forward to being able to wake up in the morning and see the view from my bedroom window straightaway, swimming with my children without worrying about wearing goggles, and as a photographer, being able to grab my camera at any moment without my glasses getting in the way or having to put lenses in before every session!
My surgery is a week away at the Bluewater store and I can't wait."
The winner of our FREE laser eye surgery competition for the month of July is Hal Shinnie from London! Hal had already visited Optical Express for a consultation when he was told he had won, so all he had to do was choose where and when he wanted treated! We look forward to seeing him in Harley Street in for his surgery in October. He told us:
"I was absolutely amazed when I got the call saying that I had won free surgery. I had been thinking about getting it done for a couple of years, but never actually got around to doing anything about it, so when I saw the chance to enter the competition I absent mindedly entered, thinking I'd never hear any more from it. However a couple of weeks later I'd had a consultation and was on the road to better vision.
My eye sight isn't particularly bad, just a bit short sighted, but it is soft enough to warrant wearing glasses. When I'm driving or watching television my specs don't really bother me, but it is when I am doing something more active like cycling, fishing or hiking in the rain or indeed when I am at work as a photographer that they really start to annoy me. Getting steamed up and smeary rain across the lenses drives me around the bend and it is almost more off a hinderance to be wearing them.
I am so looking forward to being able to see clearly without the drag of smeary, steamed up, scratched glasses on my face. I think I will particularly notice it when I am working. As a photographer I often find that during a shoot when there is a lot going that I need to think about and I'm lunging around, camera in hand trying to get find the right angle and get the most out of the subject, I get quite hot and my lenses steam up - making me flustered and making me look like a gibbering fool. I very much look forward to appearing as a cool as a cucumber during shoots…
I am slightly apprehensive about the surgery itself, not surprisingly; however, I've heard such good things about how quick the recovery time is and the pretty much instant effects that despite the initial fear, I'm really looking forward to it."
We were unable to get in contact with June's winner and their prize was sadly withdrawn.
May's lucky winner of FREE laser eye surgery was Elena Negura from Carlisle! Elena was delighted to be chosen as our winner as she has wanted the treatment for some time.

April's winner of FREE laser eye surgery was unfortunately unsuitable for the surgery and could not go ahead with treatment.
Miss Jessica Williams from Durham was drawn as this month's lucky competition winner of FREE laser eye surgery. She was delighted to find out she was our winner and told us:
"I have been wearing glasses on a daily basis since I was 7 years old and have always hoped to one day be able to afford laser eye surgery. As a student I go out a lot and wearing glasses can be a real hassle. I entered the completion to win free laser eye surgery on Facebook; it was literally just a case of entering my name and email address. Then I completely forgot all about it so you can imagine my surprise when I was called and told I had won!"
Jessica was found suitable at her consultation in our Newcastle clinic and had her surgery shortly afterwards. One month post surgery she told us:
"It's been almost 3 weeks since I underwent the laser eye treatment procedure and the results have been absolutely amazing! It still feels so strange to wake up every morning with perfect vision and to not have to put on my glasses; the strangest thing has been being able to see in the shower!"
Our winner for February unfortunately did not respond to our calls or emails and missed out on the chance of having FREE laser eye surgery!
This month's lucky competition winner is Lisa Howarth from Darwen! We were delighted to inform her she had won laser eye surgery completely free of charge. Lisa was very surprised to win and told us 'things like this never happen to me!'. Following her initial consultation in the Trafford centre, she told us:
"Hi my name is Lisa and I won Laser eye surgery! I still find it very hard to believe that I have won! This is the first time I have won anything so I am sure you can guess how happy I was to find out I was a winner. Sadly however, I was found unsuitable for the surgery at that time. For this reason I have decided to take the 500 pound vouchers instead which is still fantastic, I might just treat myself to my very first pair of designer sun glasses just in time for the summer holidays and who knows I might even get a spare pair just in case! Even though I was unsuitable for laser eye surgery, I found the staff very helpful and pleasant answering any question I had and the wait was not to long either. I found the overall service fantastic and would recommend Optical Express to anyone looking into laser eye surgery or glasses. Thanks again Optical Express!"

His consultation is booked at the end of June in our Lincoln clinic, and treatment was carried out in Cambridge in July.
He told us:
My new eyes! The last couple of weeks of my life have been fantastic. From seeing street signs, colours being brighter and even looking up at the clouds, It's like a whole new world is out there. I deal with customers all around Great Britain and offer a very high level of customer service and didn't think anyone could match this until I met the team of Optical Express! From walking in the door, to the consultation and the surgery (which only took about 10 minutes) to my final check up I could not be any happier! I would just like to say a special thank you to the Lincoln team and the Cambridge clinic where I had the surgery, you have been superb. This is something I wish everyone could experience!

Mr Rory Jackson is April's lucky winner of free laser eye surgery. He'd already had his consultation at our Watford clinic and was taken by surprise when we told him the good news. Rory said:
"Before I had laser eye treatment I was short sighted, not massively but enough that I had to wear contact lenses or glasses all of the time. From a young age I didn't like how I looked with glasses on and so I got contact lenses as soon as I could, firstly hard lenses and then soft daily disposables. This was also because I play a lot of sport including football meaning that glasses were very inconvenient. Although having lenses was relatively convenient there was still the hassle of remembering to put them in and take them out every day, and in the evenings I often found that my eyes were a little dry and I had to take my lenses out before I really wanted to. This, along with the cost of daily contact lenses led me to look into getting laser eye surgery. I entered the competition on the Optical Express website and went for my free consultation. I was told that there was no reason why I could not have the treatment and that my eyes were suitable for the whole range of treatments on offer.
"Whilst I was weighing up my options I received a call saying that I had won the competition! I couldn't believe it, so I set a date to go ahead with the procedure. In the lead up to this Optical Express were incredibly helpful and friendly, always available to answer any questions or queries I had, and made me feel at ease. On the day of the procedure the staff were again very friendly and made me feel relaxed. The surgeon and nurses were really nice and the procedure itself was amazingly quick and painless. I experienced a little discomfort immediately after the surgery and went home to bed for a few hours but since then I have had no discomfort and have been doing all of the things I normally would.
"At my check up 24 hours after the surgery my eyes were already looking good and healthy and my vision was already better than 20/20! It's nice to think that I don't have to worry about the hassle and expense of glasses and contact lenses any more. Thank you Optical Express!"
Our lucky March laser eye surgery winner is Ms. Louise McManus of Reading. Louise already had her consultation at our Reading clinic but hadn't booked yet when she was notified of her win.
Louise said: "I've been wearing glasses for 12 years and contacts for about eight years. I'm the only person in my family who has sight problems so it's hard for my family to understand what it's like not being able to see when you wake up in the morning or when you're having a shower. My sight problems held me back on family holidays, seeing sights and enjoying water parks. I have Behcets Disease which can result in eye inflammations as well so I didn’t think laser eye surgery was an option open to me at first. After my complimentary laser eye surgery consultation I found out I was a suitable candidate for treatment.
"I noticed that I could win free laser eye surgery through the Optical Express website, so I entered the competition, hoping that I might win. I couldn't believe it when Optical Express called and said I was the March winner.
"The operation was quick, painless and straight forward, I was in the surgery room for around ten minutes. Afterwards I experienced a little discomfort with my eyes watering and stinging slightly but just one day later I was back at work working on my computer. At my one week check up I had better than 20/20 vision. I feel very lucky to have been given this opportunity and want to thank all the staff at Optical Express."
February's competition winner was unfortunately unable to proceed with treatment.
If you're considering laser, book a consultation today and find out if you are suitable for the treatment.
Georgina Anderson of Brighton is the January 2011 UK winner of our monthly competition to win laser eye surgery. Before winning the competition Georgina had contacted us to find out more about laser eye surgery but had not booked a consultation yet. It was quite a surprise to Georgina to find out she had won.
Georgina commented: "When I first heard I had won I thought it was a joke as I never win anything, however when I went for my consultation reality set in as I was treated with 1st class service by everyone I met. I had the the Advanced Customvue Wavefront with iFS 150™ IntraLase at the Harley Street clinic and the staff were fantastic.
"The operation only took 15 minutes and I could see straight away, other than a little discomfort for a few hours it was completely painless. Six weeks on, I have 20/20 vision and I'm living a carefree, fun life of a 20 year old without glasses or contact lenses. Thank you very much Optical Express!"
Congratulations to our November winner Mrs Rosemarie Cordwell (47). Rosemarie had filled out an online enquiry form and was yet to book a consultation when she was notified of her win.
She said: "I'd worn glasses for 35 years; I couldn't remember what life was like without them. When I was browsing online one day when I came across the Optical Express competition to win free laser eye treatment. I filled out the online enquiry form and thought no more about it.
When I got the call advising that I'd won I got the shock of my life, I really thought there must be a catch or it was a trick. Once I got over that I was over the moon, really ecstatic. I had my initial consultation at the Eastcheap store and I was delighted to be told I was a perfect candidate for the procedure. I chose to have the treatment at the Harley Street Clinic. I was very nervous on the day and was asking lots of the questions but the surgeon Mr Manek Patel put me completely at ease. The procedure itself was over in just a few minutes and wasn't painful at all I just felt pressure on my eyeballs.
Now I'm seeing better than 20/20 and feel very lucky to have my sight back, especially since it hasn't cost me a penny. Laser eye surgery has left me feeling more confident than ever before, thank you so much Optical Express".
October laser eye surgery winner is Miss Victoria Mayall of Hull. Victoria entered the competition via the online enquiry form after chatting to staff at the Hull St Stephens store about the treatment.
She said "I had popped into the store to ask about laser eye surgery and what it involved. I didn't have time that day to have a free consultation but they answered all the questions I had regarding my astigmatism and whether or not I would be suitable, I went home to do some research online and came across the competition. I entered my details not thinking anything would come of it and to my surprise I got a call advising me that I had won! I just couldn't believe it! I called Optical Express immediately after to make sure it wasn't a scam and to confirm all the details. I couldn't believe my luck!
On the day of the treatment I was quite nervous and worried about the procedure but the staff at the Hull clinic were all really lovely and made me feel so at ease. One of the nurses even held my hand throughout the treatment. The service from the surgery team and store staff was first class. Immediately after the treatment my eyes felt sticky and quite gritty but I went home to bed and woke up a few hours later with perfect vision. I don't ever remember seeing so well. Laser eye surgery has completely changed my life, my confidence has been boosted and I'm saving so much time and money on my glasses and contact lenses.
Thank you Optical Express for changing my life!"
Congratulations to Mr. Colin Findlay of Falkirk, our lucky September winner. He was taken completely by surprise when he was told he had won free laser eye surgery as he had just filled out an enquiry form on the website! He had his consultation at our Stirling store and was delighted to be found suitable for laser eye surgery. He had his treatment at our Silverburn clinic with surgeon David Teenan and is now seeing better than 20/20!
He said "I'm a police officer in Glasgow and having had the treatment means that I can now go into situations knowing that my glasses are not going to hinder me. I use to have to remove my glasses for the helmet as they were not practical. This is now a thing of the past, laser eye surgery has made a huge difference to my work and to my life. I can't believe that after wearing glasses for so many years that I don't need them anymore! I keep trying to remove invisible glasses at bedtime and such! Many thanks to all at Optical Express, I have nothing but praise for all staff at the Stirling and Silverburn clinics. I would urge anyone considering laser eye surgery to visit Optical Express."
Mr Ashraf Nasir of Leeds was our August winner of the free prize draw; he had just completed an online enquiry form when he was told he had won. He had his consultation in September and his free treatment courtesy of Optical Express in October at our Leeds clinic.
Ashraf is ecstatic about the results of his treatment, his vision is now better than it was with his glasses. He said "Laser eye surgery has been a life changing experience for me and one of the best things I have ever done. I was fed up for years wearing glasses (especially when my little ones were very fond of breaking them). I decided to enter the competition to win free laser eye surgery and to my surprise I received a phone call advising me Id won! Its amazing to have freedom from glasses after so many years as they really were the bane of my life.
"My vision after treatment is definitely sharper than before and Im seeing better than 20/20! I can't even imagine what it was like wearing glasses anymore, I can play with my kids without any fear or hassle of breaking or losing them. I found the staff at Leeds clinic incredibly professional and kind. They explained every step of the process very clearly and the surgeon Mr Khalid Khan was excellent. The surgery itself was painless and over before I knew it!
The post operative care provided has been second to none. I will not hesitate in recommending Optical Express to anyone considering having laser eye surgery. Thank you Optical Express for changing my world and helping me to see clearly."
The competition winner in July was Jennifer Glover who couldn't believe her luck at winning free laser eye surgery courtesy of Optical Express.
She said "Initially I was a bit apprehensive, I have never won anything in my life and I thought it was too good to be true. I had my first consultation on Tuesday 24th of August and had laser treatment on Saturday 4th September in Edinburgh.
The improvement straight away to my vision has changed my life, I can actually now see the bus number before it arrives and I can read signs clearly. Driving at night has always been a nightmare for me as I get dazzled by oncoming traffic, glasses and contact lenses do not correct this, but laser eye surgery does! The results are fantastic.
More importantly the customer service and care I have received at Optical Express has been fantastic, all Optical Express staff that I have come in contact with in the Edinburgh Princes St branch have exceeded my expectations. They are all generally lovely people, friendly, chatty and made me feel so welcome and at ease. Everything was well organised and very professional, no question went unanswered and this made the whole procedure much easier.
The surgeon Shahriar Nabili was extremely professional and again made me feel at ease. I am still receiving my aftercare and the service is excellent, I thought because I had won the treatment I maybe wouldn't receive the service that other patients might receive, that was just not the case.
A few members of Optical Express staff that I came into contact with had themselves received laser treatment. I thought this was great as they were able to tell me about their experience which again made me feel more relaxed.
I have already put an update on my Face Book page saying how amazing I feel since I've had laser eye surgery, and in the space of about 3 hours I had 20 friends message me - asking me details, how it was, did it hurt etc. I will 100% be recommending they have it done and will definitely be recommending Optical Express."
June's Competition Winner Mark Clark is happy with the results of his laser eye surgery and is very glad that he entered the competition online. He said: "I've just had my monthly check up and things are looking great, being able to see things clearly without glasses (in fact better than with my glasses) is remarkable. I didn't think laser eye surgery could make this much difference, it's fantastic! Since the procedure I've had loads of friends ask how I got on, I hope some of them go for it. Once again many thanks to Optical Express, I'm so glad I entered the competition!"
Miss Yvonne Skalban was the lucky winner of free laser eye surgery in May. She had her consultation at our Wolverhampton clinic and her surgery in August at our Merryhill clinic.
Yvonne is overjoyed with the results of her treatment and is enjoying life without glasses. Yvonne said "I had my eye surgery two weeks ago at the Merry Hill branch. I was really scared but the staff at Merry Hill put me at ease, they were excellent! They were really friendly and explained everything to me in great detail. It was really nice to see that most of them had the surgery done themselves, that helped me calm down a lot. My surgeon Mr Alex George was also brilliant. I am very happy and am enjoying my life without glasses thanks to Optical Express! I imagined a life without glasses to be great, but in reality it is truly awesome! I am looking forward to doing my favourite sports (snowboarding, running, diving, squash) without annoying glasses. Even day to day life is so much nicer, I can open the dishwasher without being blinded by steam and when going out I can put beautiful eye makeup on".
