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.

As well as the reviews we’ve published below, you can visit independent review sites like Trustpilot and Google reviews to find out what our patients have to say outside of the clinic.

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.
Isobel

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!
– Ben

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.
– Kiran

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!
– Beth

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
