The next best thing to first-hand experience is hearing about the experience of another person.
And thanks to our huge database of patient testimonials, you can not only get an insight into the experience of one Laser Eye Surgery patient, but hundreds.
Below you’ll find a selection of Laser Eye Surgery testimonials which describe the journeys of many different types of patients through the process of LASIK, LASEK, High Profile and Laser Blended Vision treatment. We welcome you to review these comments and gain a clearer idea of what you can expect.
However, it’s important to be cautious when reading testimonials and know that the Laser Eye Surgery experiences of others may not necessarily reflect your own. Furthermore, if you’re looking to gain a well-rounded and balanced opinion, patient comments published on a clinic’s own website can only go so far.
Patient reviews are of course subjective are not evidence-based. For outcomes statistics, we recommend you examine our quantified Laser Eye Surgery results for objective data of what results you can expect.

Patient reviews of Laser Eye Surgery
I think the most amazing thing is waking up and being able to see everything and in focus. I open my eyes very cautiously every morning, just in case it has gone! I still have a certain amount of disbelief, and having had poor sight since the age of four, this will go on for a bit longer. I now feel more protective of my eyes, and treat them with more respect.
Highly recommend! The treatment has transformed my life – had forgotten how cumbersome life had become wearing glasses – from text messaging to recognising shampoo and conditioner when in the shower!!
Only six hours after the procedure, whilst making myself tea, I glanced across the work surface and realised that I could actually read the newsprint without my glasses, I could not believe it. Life just got better and better, no more searching for lost glasses when shopping, no more embarrassing moments in restaurants. Being able to watch television and seeing detail – but best of all being able to programme the machines in the gym! Thank you so much for giving me back 20/20 vision and for taking 20 years off my life.
– Adele N., Fitness Trainer
Mr Carp was extremely professional and reassuring throughout the entire experience. His depth of knowledge in his field gave me the confidence I was looking for in the procedure and the calm, assured manner in which he carried it out was world class and lived up to my expectations; a 5-star experience.
I was doing more than 1,500 cataract surgeries per year and was tired of cleaning my spectacles after nearly each procedure. While attending a course at the London Vision Clinic, Professor Reinstein introduced us to Laser Blended Vision. I was really impressed by the results patients showed on the next day. This was not simple monovision. Flying back home I felt that the decision-making process was over for me. In a couple of months I had surgery at the London Vision Clinic. Now, more than six months after surgery, my vision is great, and I can read a newspaper at 15cm. Obviously, I am very glad I did it!
– Dr Teesalu, Ophthalmic Surgeon
Dan gave me complete confidence that I would be able to
see and that it would change my life forever.
– Samantha H., Engineering Manager – BAE Systems, from Preston, Lancashire
I can only say that the results for me speak for themselves. Having worn contact lenses for 30-plus years, to be free of all the aggravation is fantastic. My vision now is so much better than with the lenses, it is incredible. Dan and his team are truly experts in their field, and I cannot conceive why anyone would go elsewhere for laser surgery.
– Tony M., Company Director
Professor Dan Reinstein is so confident and reassuring that he makes you feel you have nothing to worry about and the end result justified this.
– Caroline K., Researcher, from South Croydon
I arrived with an open mind and a little excitement at the prospect of better sight, Glenn Carp talked me through every aspect of the experience, sometimes more than once, and all of you (the staff) have made me feel special. The whole procedure has been completely painless apart from a couple of hours of discomfort straight after surgery.
– Stephen P., Profession: Director
I have received excellent service and patient care both before during and after I had the surgery. I was put completely at ease and any worry/concerns were thoroughly explained and dismissed. I’ve worn glasses since I was eight and to now be free of them is remarkable, I’d recommend the LVC to everyone who’s considering laser eye surgery!
I am so glad that I chose LVC for my treatment. It was worth every penny. As they all say – I wish I’d done it years ago! The facilities are wonderful, the staff very friendly, professional and efficient. My pre-op and post-op care has been great. I’ve already recommended it to my friends and family.
I am so happy that I decided to have the laser eye surgery. Everyone at the London Vision Clinic was fantastic! They explained every single part of the process so clearly, they filled me with confidence and put me at ease. The best decision I ever made!
All my worries and fears were laid to rest by the patient clinic staff – No question was ever too much for them to answer. Dr Dan has such a caring manner I felt at ease straight away, my operation went perfectly.
– Jennifer N., Housewife from Middlesex
Thank you very much to staff at the clinic and to Dr Carp for a very thorough pre-surgery consultation which put my fears at rest. The surgery itself was quick and painless & Dr Carp talked me through each step methodically. One day later, I have no pain and very little discomfort (and good vision!)
– Grainne M., Lawyer
I was given straight and exact advice as to what could be achieved to improve my vision to near perfect and the London Vision Clinic have fulfilled all.
– Ian S., Export Sales Consultant from Thorncliffe, Stafford
Totally professional, from first contact to post operative care, fantastic attention to detail, staff advice and help at all times. Would recommend unreservedly.
– Patrick G., Healthcare Development Manager from Grangemouth, Stirlings.
My introduction to London Vision Clinic was via their website which is informative and honest, not just listing the benefits but also the potential hazards, which gave me a sense of confidence. An influential factor in my decision to try LVC was that the statistics were based on Dan’s results, and his alone. His background and experience was comforting. When it came time for the surgery, I was nervous, as anyone would be, but the staff helped me to relax and it seemed so routine. The surgery was quick and painless although strange, and the results immediate. After the surgery I felt as though I had the support there if I needed it.
– Guy N., Software Consultant from Farnborough, Hampshire
What do you define a miracle to be? Just supposing after 50 years you could suddenly stop wearing specs full time and be able to see clearly and even read the telephone directory. A miracle? I should say so. This is exactly what happened to me in just a few short months. I have gone from 50 years of wearing specs that have been of the highest prescription (+8.75), and therefore of the thickest lenses, to absolute freedom, without the need to use even the lowest reading lens for the telephone directory. The care and attention that I have received from Dan and his team at London Vision Clinic cannot be improved upon. What can you say but the most heartfelt thank you to a team that have performed a miracle.
– Shaena W., Reservations Manager
“A happy patient the day after Laser Eye Surgery at the London Vision Clinic. All patients attend their 1-day post-operative appointment with their Laser Eye surgeon.”
It may sound perverse but my experience at the London Vision Clinic was wonderful. The very thorough tests before surgery were conducted by attentive, sympathetic professionals. On the day of surgery, final tests followed by a head and shoulder massage provided the perfect lead in to a surgical procedure that was without discomfort. The consultant surgeon was outstanding. From the moment I entered his surgery and receiving a phone call from him in the evening at home, he was reassuring, compassionate and utterly professional. Since my operation, the results have been fantastic! I have experienced absolutely no discomfort and my vision is significantly better than 20/20. The post-op care has been equally good.
– Patrick O., Royal Air Force Officer
I firmly believe Professor Dan Reinstein is at the top of his profession. Having gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in laser eye surgery, Dan established the London Vision Clinic and built an impressive team of support staff who are all extremely professional and very passionate about being the best in their field. Quite simply, the London Vision Clinic is a very impressive organisation where any patient can feel totally assured that they are receiving the best advice and treatment for their eyes.
My suggestion to anyone wishing to see without lenses or glasses is just to put their trust in the people at the London Vision Clinic – they are probably the very best in their field.
– Simon M., Director of a property investment company from Marlow, Buckinghamshire.
All questions were answered fully and Dr. Reinstein made me feel well informed and safe.
– Paul F., Research Scientist, from Cambridge
When my arm was no longer long enough for me to read a magazine or newspaper, I knew it was time to invest in some glasses! Of course the situation did not improve and I was always forgetting to put them in my handbag. I could no longer read price tags and there were many times when I thought I had bagged a bargain only to find, when I went to pay, there was an extra nought on the end and I was too embarrassed not to buy it! Supermarket shopping was hell, I could never read the weights or check ingredients. Many times I had to buy a pair of the store’s reading glasses to do my shopping! My family would laugh at me because I had a pair of glasses in every room, so I could check a recipe or the oven temperature, to check the times of my favourite programmes and even to check if my eye make-up was okay! Worst of all, being keen on going to the gym, I could no longer read the instructions or set up the programme I wanted. And glasses in the gym were just hopeless. There had been many embarrassing moments in restaurants when I had forgotten the glasses and had to ask someone to read the menu for me. The dreaded day came when the optician prescribed varifocals –either that or carry two pairs of glasses!
An insight into the Laser Eye Surgery process
Lucy, a past patient, contemplates her reasons for choosing the London Vision Clinic as she prepares for her Laser Eye Surgery.
Everything was very straightforward and I felt completely informed and put at ease by staff. The results are amazing, I can see better now than with contact lenses! I would recommend the surgery to anyone
Relax, let London Vision Clinic take you through the procedure.
I was referred to the clinic by one of my colleagues and I have never looked back since. The service I received was excellent. All my questions were answered beforehand. I wish I had discovered the clinic sooner. It has changed my life completely.
I would have it done again tomorrow – it has enhanced all aspects of my life. To wake up in the morning and not have to reach for my glasses to do anything is nothing short of miraculous to me! Golf, reading, sewing, gardening, swimming are now so much easier.

Once you visit the clinic and speak to everyone involved, your initial fear will disappear. Any questions you have are answered, any information you need is supplied, there is no pressure and everyone has time for you.

Since 2002, Professor Reinstein has been a very important part of Carl Zeiss Meditec’s global clinical research network. Carl Zeiss Meditec has worked in close partnership with Professor Reinstein and his staff at the London Vision Clinic on several key research initiatives including the treatment of presbyopia and high prescriptions. I believe this long-term, strategic partnership will continue to help Carl Zeiss Meditec maintain its position as a technology leader.
– Stefan Kaiser, Director Refractive Lasers, Carl Zeiss Meditec
The procedure was quick and painless. After 20 minutes or so of the laser surgery, I was led into a darkened room for a surprise massage. A very nice touch indeed and well appreciated.
– Carlos D., Computer Programmer
