Lens Replacement Surgery January 2023
Fed up of wearing contact lenses and glasses, motivational speaker, Penny Mallory opted for lens replacement surgery at Optical Express.
Penny, travels all around the UK speaking to audiences about Mental Toughness, but she struggled to work comfortably whilst wearing either her contact lenses or her glasses. As she needs to have both long and short distance vision, it was important for Penny to find a hassle free solution that could allow her to work to the best of her ability. Penny commented, “I was getting really fed up with managing my eyes.”
After speaking with a few of her friends who have already had the surgery, Penny had come to the conclusion that she has “got to do this”. Attending her free consultation at the Optical Express Milton Keynes clinic, Penny’s vision was thoroughly tested with our state of the art technology and a date was scheduled for her lens replacement surgery.
On the day of surgery, Penny mentioned that she is “not very good in a hospital environment” and was feeling quite anxious and nervous. But on reflection she commented that “the reality was nothing like the picture I’d created in my head.” At Optical Express we strive to ensure all of our patients are comfortable and relaxed, and have the best patient care provided to them throughout their full patient journey. Penny described the team in the clinic as “professional and so reassuring that actually my anxiety dropped as I got closer to the operation because I really felt like I was in safe hands.”
After her surgery, Penny’s recovery was so quick and fast paced, that she could see immediately and even read her phone. Penny commented that “it was the most fantastic feeling, and I still get it every day.”
Speaking about her new vision, Penny describes her feeling “like I’ve got a whole new lease of life”. She now lives “hassle free” and no longer has to pack contact solution when she is travelling for work. She no longer has to think about her vision and “can go anywhere and do anything without having to worry about my eyes.”
