Lens Replacement Surgery October 2022
When Angela started to notice that she couldn’t really read, she decided "it was time to do something about this" and opted for lens replacement surgery at Optical Express.
While on holiday, relaxing and reading the newspaper, Angela started to notice that she couldn’t really read it. On her return, she booked in for an eye test and was told she would need to wear glasses. Every year since Angela’s prescription was getting worse which required her to constantly get new glasses.
A teacher of 15 years, she had to write observations and reports and felt that she was constantly needing her glasses for everything. She often found that she was misplacing her glasses and was reluctant to wear them around her neck.
Angela, also had falling a couple of times, whether it was falling over the stairs or chasing the dogs, wearing glasses had become an inconvenience in her personal and professional life and decided “it was time to do something about this”.
Attending her free consultation at Optical Express, Angela was well informed about what her options were and was delighted to hear that lens replacement surgery would enable her to see clearly and that she also “wouldn’t end up with cataracts and obviously no more glasses”.
On the day of Angela’s surgery, she felt quite nervous but commented that the staff are “really, really nice and everybody makes you feel relaxed”. Describing her time in the clinic as “from the start to finish everybody knows who you are as a patient, unlike the doctors when you have to explain yourself each and every time”.
Having the surgery was easy, as every small detail was explained which Angela found to be useful and made her feel even more at ease and she “came away feeling really good”. Over £500million has been invested in our technology and clinics to ensure our patients are getting the best outcomes and our facilities encompass a relaxing and calming environment.
Following her surgery, Angela commented on the “oh wow” moment she realised that she could see without her glasses; “the next morning, I got up and the phone rang and when I picked it up and read the text, I then realised I can see it. I don’t need my glasses.”
