Customer testimonials

What Dr Klopper’s patients say about him

My whole experience from consultation and surgery to aftercare appointments was a great one. The surgery itself is very straightforward and quick. The surgeon talked me through each stage so I was informed at all times. I would highly recommend Optical Express.

It was great for me to go to Optical Express for laser eye surgery. I had good consultation with the surgeon before surgery and my all questions were answered. Even on the day of surgery, I was given all info and good care was taken. Its feels amazing without glasses - no worries during football now!
