Customer testimonials

What Alex George's patients say about him

I had Lasek eye surgery and all the team that work at Merry Hill branch were truly fantastic and the surgeon Alex George was exceptional.

Mark Knott

Excellent service by the staff and surgeon at Optical Express, I had lots of questions and they were all happy to help! I know it sounds cliché, but I wish I had the surgery years ago when I first thought about it. So happy with my results and would definitely recommend to anyone.
