'Thanks a Million'

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



Police Officer

“I had worn glasses and contact lenses since I was about 16, so probably about 18 years or so.

Wearing glasses and contact lenses affected my everyday working life. The winters in Scotland mean that it gets very cold. There have been times when I’ve been working outside and then had run into a house to break up a fight - suddenly your glasses steam up, and it can be quite a dangerous situation.

My vision now compared to pre surgery is fantastic. I’ve had all the check ups so far that I need and I have better than 20/20 vision.

Being able to go to work and not have the worry of contact lenses or getting injured wearing my glasses – it’s unbelievable.”

I've had all my check ups and I have better than 20/20 vision.

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.
