Laser Eye SurgeryAugust 2022
We caught up with Sarah, Global Marketing Manager, just 24 hours after her iDesign laser eye surgery at our state of the art treatment clinic in Glasgow. Struggling with the inconvenience of wearing contact lenses to battle against her short-sightedness, Sarah is now overjoyed to have 20/20 visual freedom.
Due to the high costs of glasses and contact lenses building up over time, as well as the costs of repairs for when her glasses got damaged, Sarah decided it was time to make a change and made the decision to have laser eye surgery. With both her husband and sister having had the surgery, Sarah knew she had made a great decision in opting for treatment, commenting “Everyone else has had it done and everyone wishes they’d done it sooner.”
Sarah was treated by renowned surgeon and Medical Director at Optical Express, Dr David Teenan who is considered a world leader in the field of refractive surgery. Discussing how thorough the surgery process was, Sarah felt that she was given all the information she needed ahead of her treatment date and was shocked at how quickly the surgery itself was performed on the day saying, “all of a sudden it was over.”
With her newfound visual freedom Sarah is now looking forward to enjoying her favourite hobby of swimming without having to endure the hassle of wearing contact lenses and goggles. With a family holiday on the horizon she can enjoy swimming in the sea without the worry of getting salt water in her contact lenses or causing her dry and irritated eyes. Commenting on the relief she felt Sarah said, “The surgery just takes all of that away,” making day to day life far more convenient.
Waking up the morning after surgery, Sarah was shocked at how good her vision was, describing her eyesight as just as good as with her contact lenses in, “That’s how amazing my sight is just now, so it’s quite surreal”.
After doing her own research Sarah knew that it was a “no brainer” to go with Optical Express for her laser eye surgery treatment, being the market leader within the UK. When asked if she would recommend the laser eye surgery at Optical Express to her friends and family Sarah didn’t hesitate describing the experience as life-changing for her.
