“Laser eye surgery definitely improved my confidence overall.” Steve was speaking after ditching his glasses finally gave him the courage to ask his dream girl on their first date.
Steve underwent laser eye surgery at Optical Express in Cheltenham in 2009 at the hands of surgeon, Mr Alex George. As one of Optical Express’ most experienced ophthalmic surgeons, Mr George has performed almost 50,000 procedures during his career.
“The experience was very smooth, the surgery was very quick actually and everything was explained clearly including possible risks. I’m so glad I did now. It worked perfectly first time and I’ve had no problems with my eyes since.”
Steve, from Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, first started experiencing problems with his eyes 20 years ago, wearing glasses as a child and then contact lenses as he progressed to University.
Steve said: “I wore mainly disposable daily contact lenses if I went out to social events in the evening, but like most people would tell you, they tend to dry up by the end of the day.
