'Thanks a Million'

We're proud to be donating £1 million worth of laser eye surgery to NHS and emergency service workers




“Wearing glasses at work was really difficult due to the nature of the job. Over the past few years, wearing contact lenses in dirty environments, having to carry out water rescues in rivers and ponds and working in smoky, dirty environments has caused me quite a few problems with my eyes. It’s made it difficult to do my job.

Just being able to see things that are more than a couple of feet away without glasses or contacts is quite amazing actually. It took a few days to get used to not having to put my contacts in or look for a pair of glasses in the morning.

Now, because of the surgery, I know that at any time of day or night my vision is going to be clear. It’s a lot safer for driving, and even for just general day to day work when we’re around the station doing bits and bobs.”

It's changed my life at home and at work immensely.

About 'Thanks a Million'

‘In July 2017, we launched our campaign to say ‘Thanks a Million’ to NHS and emergency service workers. The initiative followed a national survey commissioned by Optical Express, which found that people who dedicate their lives to public service 'are most deserving of our thanks'. As a result, we pledged to give away £1 million of laser eye surgery by way of thanks.

It’s no wonder that we were inundated with applications, because glasses and contact lenses can be a real hassle. That’s especially true if you lead active lives like our ‘Thanks a Million’ patients.

Over 99% of our patients achieve 20/20 vision or better after treatment* and 100% of patients achieve driving standard vision or better. Just like them, the wonderful patients we’ve already treated are discovering the joy and freedom that laser eye surgery brings.

We’re the UK and Europe’s No.1 provider of laser eye surgery. Our pioneering approach helps to make sure that our patients achieve the very best results possible, from our state of the art advanced technology to our highly experienced surgeons.

Many of our delighted patients tell us that choosing to have laser eye surgery is one of the best decisions they’ve ever made, and that they wish they’d decided to have treatment earlier. You can find the freedom you’ve been looking for too - contact us now to start your journey to great vision.

It’s a wonderful world. We’ll help you see it that way.
