What Dr Hove’s patients say about him
Laser eye surgery was one of my biggest dreams, and it became true! So glad I did it! I can really enjoy life now. I see perfectly and couldn’t be happier.
Not having to wear spectacles anymore is absolutely marvellous, I was always putting them down and forgetting where I left them! My eyes are better than 20|20 now and my quality of life is so much better.
