What Dr Mathew’s patients say about him

All the staff I encountered - before, during, and after the treatment provided the best support. There is nothing better! It’s a miracle! Go for it!

I had such a caring team of people who looked after me, although I was nervous about the procedure, I was put at ease and told exactly what would happen at each step of the procedure. Thank you to all the wonderful team at Optical Express.
