Customer Testimonials

What Dr George’s patients say about him

“We had a really extensive phone conversation about two weeks before. He talked me through everything and he got to know me and I got to know him and his recommendations and expectations of the surgery.”

Megan - Laser Eye Surgery

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 - Laser Eye Surgery

"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."
