What Dr Patel’s patients say about him

The procedure was so quick and the people performing it - in particular the surgeon, put me at ease - I wasn’t at all apprehensive. The next day my vision was perfect and I have had better than 20|20 vision ever since. I would recommend this to anyone, best thing I ever did.

Claire Watson

On the day of the surgery Dr Patel was excellent, he explained everything clearly. I would not hesitate to recommend Optical Express.
