Customer testimonials

What Dr Aziz’s patients say about him

My experience with Optical Express was really good, from consultation to the procedure everything was first class. When going on holiday it is great not having to pack contact lenses, glasses and solutions. Swimming without contacts is brilliant. Many Thanks.

The surgeon was reassuring and spoke to me all through the surgery. I would highly recommend Optical Express, I love my new eyes and am thankful for their excellent service and care!
