Lens Replacement SurgerySeptember 2022
We caught up with patient Gary at his home in Belfast shortly after his multifocal lens replacement surgery at our new state of the art treatment clinic in Belfast city centre. After having a successful football career in his younger years, Gary noticed his vision worsening as he grew older, especially when it came to reading the newspaper, checking his texts or reading over business information. Combined with the frustration of constantly forgetting his glasses, and his poor eyesight having an impact on his job, Gary decided to opt for lens replacement surgery at Optical Express describing it as, “the best road I’ve ever gone down.” He is now delighted with his new-found visual freedom.
Prior to his surgery, Gary had spoken to a number of friends who had previously had the procedure and who assured him of how amazing the experience had been for them, with many commenting “it was the best thing they have ever done.” With such positive feedback Gary felt no nerves on the day of his procedure, and was even put at ease when he got speaking to another patient in the clinic waiting room who had just underwent her own lens replacement surgery the day before and was already remarking at how amazing the results were for her.
Waking up the morning after his surgery Gary was shocked by the vast improvement he already noticed in his vision, explaining “I couldn’t believe my eyesight was so clear!” He found he was already able to do simple things like reading the newspaper or checking texts on his phone that he couldn’t see the day before without the use of his glasses. Enjoying these amazing results just 24 hours after his surgery, he couldn’t wait to see what the full extent of his vision would be like once his eyes were fully healed from the procedure.
Calling the entire experience “incredible”, Gary would recommend Optical Express “all day long” to anyone else considering lens replacement surgery. He is even constantly reminding his friends, family and teammates that surgery is now available at our new advanced treatment clinic in Belfast city centre making the procedure more accessible than ever before for people living in Northern Ireland.
Remarking that the whole experience was “amazing” and that the staff were “10 out of 10” and “couldn’t have been more help”, Gary is now looking forward to putting his boots on and getting back out on the football field with his new found visual freedom.
