Patient Testimonials

What Mr Antico's patients say about him

"I was really, really happy with the treatment."

Habiba Da Silva - Laser Eye Surgery

"My surgeon was amazing! I have no regrets whatsoever! After 32 years of wearing spectacles I am finally free!"

Sharon Willis - Lens Replacement Surgery

"The entire process was like taking a deep breath of fresh air, having come through a smoke filled room. Taking small steps to adjust, you are allowed in a short space of time to stand in the rain, go swimming, play sports that have previously limited your involvement. So many missed chances are now all opportunities."
