Customer testimonials

What Dr Teenan's patients say about him

What an amazing job the team at Optical Express Glasgow have done. Dr David Teenan and his team have left me speechless. I am totally amazed by the results of my surgery.

Robert McMahon, Glasgow

I feel incredible, somewhere between the bionic woman and a sheer miracle. One of the things which hammered it home was sitting with my 19-year-old daughter on the night of the second operation and being able to read her texts. Although I didn’t tell her that, obviously!
