Your personal data is secure

The next best thing to first-hand experience is the experience of others.

Reviews and testimonials are everywhere. However, it’s important to be cautious when reading testimonials and know that the Laser Eye Surgery experiences 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.

We strongly recommend that you read fully independent reviews, such as Google reviews to find out what our patients have to say about the clinic.

You should also consider Trustpilot as a useful source. Be aware that not all review platforms are created equal. Some, for example, allow multiple reviews per patient and may restrict or fail to show poor reviews. Do your research with your eyes wide open.

Of course, patient reviews are subjective and are not evidence-based. For outcomes statistics, we recommend you examine quantified Laser Eye Surgery results.

After a lot of research, I chose ReLEx SMILE at London Vision Clinic. From the beginning they were professional and very helpful, explaining everything clearly. The actual surgery was painless and recovery was surprisingly quick - my vision had improved enough that I could drive without glasses just 24 hours later. Follow up appointments with Mr Stuart were friendly and efficient. I would have no hesitation recommending him and London Vision Clinic.

I had my treatment back in April and have attended follow up appointments where thorough checks are made each time. All the staff are very helpful and I feel very well taken care of and know they are only a phone call away. I'm now being fitted for glasses for driving to help with the glare issue I have when driving at night.

Great experience from start to end. I was a high profile patience and did SMILE and Blended Vision in June. The result exceeded my expectations and all the staff, from the receptionist, optometrists and Mr Stuart have been exceptionally friendy and professional. Could not have chosen a better place to do my life changing surgery.

As someone needing a high profile surgery, I was a little unsure about proceeding with the eye correction. After a few consultations, I was fairly confident that things would go well and this was due to a very capable team and rigorous screenings being done at the clinic. I have recently had my 3rd month post op checkup following my ReLex SMILE procedure and I don't think it could have gone any better!

London Vision Clinic are exceptional. I was really hesitant with under going the blended vision procedure for several months but finally went ahead in April 2021 but it has been a life changer. All the staff at LVC are brilliant and you are in good hands with the receptionists and admin girls, optometrists and surgeons. Totally professional & nothing is too much trouble and I was fully informed all the way through with all the information I needed before, during and after. The aftercare has been fantastic with regular follow up appointments to monitor that all is well. Mr Carp did my procedure and put me totally at ease.One of the few places where you don't just feel like a number even though it is a very busy clinic.If you are considering having your eyes lasered I would not hesitate to recommend LVC.

I was recommended by a friend to consider LOVC for my laser eye surgery. From my initial query up until my laser eye surgery, the service from Megan, Glenn Carp and the LOVC team has been first rate. The service has been thoroughly excellent, professional and caring throughout every interaction with a member of the team. The initial eye examination was very thorough and everything was explained to me each step of the way. Meeting Glenn Carp made me feel at ease and he ensured that there were no surprises for me on the day of my surgery. From the moment I arrived in the morning of my surgery, I was looked after and the nurse went through the process and medications I would need to take post op with me throughly and patiently. The surgery itself was daunting initially when I walked in but again Mr Carp put me at ease and the way he handled the surgery process with me was just sublime. I was comfortable, relaxed and was able to place my complete trust in him and his team. The following day I met him again and he checked my eyes ensuring there were no problems. I cannot recommend LOVC enough. It has been a professional and assuring process with my care and needs borne in mind throughout. If you are undecided, do give LOVC a consideration. Exceptional service and medical care second to none. Highly recommended! Thank you to the whole team at LOVC and see you in a month’s time.

The London Vision Clinic team are absolutely fab. I’d initially gone in last year for a Laser Consult but was advised by Mr Alastair Stuart to consider ICL instead. It was the best advice I have ever received and I’m delighted with the decision to go through with ICL. My surgery was in at the end of June 2021 and it’s been smooth sailing since. The surgery itself was great and I was well looked after by entire team. Professor Reinstein performed the surgery and he was amazing at explaining the procedure clearly prior to the surgery itself. All in all, the care provided by the London Vision Clinic is absolutely amazing and I can’t recommend it enough.

I had my procedure done in April (Blended Vision) and its still amazes me at times that I can go around my life withouth the glasses its sooo amazing. I am not really sure why I have waited so long but I am glad I finally did it and London Vision Clinic was the right choice. The whole process from initial call to the operation took only few weeks but I felt well informed each step of the way and not once felt rushed or pushed into the decision, on the contrary. All the risks have been explained along with the aftercare and during consultation and I was given few days to think before confirming the date of the operation. The procedure was quick and aftercare is excellent. I had two check ups since and my vision is almost 20/20 and supply of eye drops is bottomless. You can feel they do genuinely care about their patients.

A fantastic service from start to finish. Extremely detailed, honest and managed my expectations right from the start. Despite me experiencing fantastic results and I can see perfectly now, they made me aware of potential risks which I think is vital. They took the time to test for all different types of surgery - something I found really reassuring and offered me choice dependent on what was best for my lifestyle. The surgery itself was extremely quick, pain free and I felt relaxed throughout the whole procedure. My results have been life changing. Highly recommend this clinic, the service and experience was so different to the well known companies on the high street. They did not rush me, nor focus on a "hard-sell".

I chose London Vision Clinic based on some fairly extensive research including other reviews, YouTube videos and the like and I’m happy to say it did not disappoint. I had laser eye surgery about 3 months now and couldn’t be happier with the result, I’ve got perfect 20-20 vision for the first time in my life and the only question I have is, why didn’t I get it done sooner! I’m quite squeamish but the process was easy for me and didn’t panic or worry once, completely pain and panic free and supported through the process every step of the way. I’d fully recommend LVC for anyone else on this journey.

I chose to visit London Vision to find out more about their services, based on the Which? review which placed them at the top of the leaderboard on nearly all fronts. The price is slighty higher than other providers, and this is the only clinic I have been through, but the whole experience was amazing, reassuring, insightful (literally) and the follow-up care has been excellent. The staffa nd the facilities are first-class, and every step of the eye correction journey is explained in detail, and in a way that is easy to understand. The whole procedure was painless, and the outcome is better than I could have hoped. Big thanks to Glenn, Brendan and the whole LVC team. You guys are fantastic.

If only I had it done sooner!I always played with the thought having my vision corrected, but it was the pandemic that really pushed me to do it. Masks and glasses don’t play well together and astigmatism without correction gives you headaches and slows you down a lot!London Vision Clinic was the best decision I ever made. Every single person at the clinic genuinely wants the best for you and they treat you like royalty!They explain every step of the journey and I have never felt more reassured in my life - and that’s coming from someone who struggles to use eye drops let alone having a surgery carried out on their eyes!The actual procedure was completely pain - or even discomfort free and so much quicker than the build up to it and the results were instant! I now rock a 20/16 vision and never felt more liberated from the nuisance of having to wear glasses, or going trough the trouble of getting prescription sunglasses!I am forever grateful for the truly professional help and care I received throughout my experience with London Vision Clinic! Thank you!

I had SMILE laser eye surgery here earlier in the year and it has changed my life. My sister and a few of my cousins have also had treatment here so I wouldn’t have gone to anyone else as their surgery was also so successful. First class service and experience. Surgery was pain free and so quick. Very thorough examinations and tests to make sure risks are minimised and the aftercare is brilliant. Everyone is friendly and welcoming as well. If i had to pick something to improve on would be that sometimes i was waiting a bit longer than my booked appointment time to be seen which makes it harder to coordinate travel (as i live outside of London). However on my last appointment i told the girls what time my train was and they arranged for a different optometrist to see me. All in all great service and would highly recommend.

I’ve written on this before but the post got deleted. To summarize: Glenn was amazing, Great process throughout, Answered my (many) questions thoroughly, Post-care was outstanding. The little touches with the soft toy into the treatment room for any slight anxiety, to the help from the staff to get back into a car back, to the easy access for help AND special eyedrops needed when running low with any post-treatment, very much appreciated. Might be ‘pricey’ compared to the rest of UK / Australia / DACH of course, but the service and treatment was outstanding so far.Would definitely recommend doing your own research prior of course, but my experience here was certainly a positive one…enough so that I referred my partner who then had smile done here as well!

Best Decision of my Life!I had been thinking about having this procedure for a long long time, i was extremely worried as I have underlying health issues. The London Vision clinic reassured me and did extra steps to make sure this was the right procedure for me. There is not a single thing I can fault! I cannot thank The London Vision Clinic enough, you have giving me a new view on life!No more steaming up glasses, no more swimming blind, no more searching for my glasses, no more clearing rain drops from my view, no more eyelashes hitting my glasses, no more baby grabbing them from my face, the list goes on and on! When I open my eyes in the morning it’s immediately ultra HD and not blurry!The reasons you should choose London Vision Clinic over other clinics:• You know exactly what you are paying before hand and everything is included (I had to have extra visits and drops due to having dry eyes, first thing that come to my mind “they are just saying this because it’s more money in their pocket” NOT TRUE! As it’s all included.My friend choose a clinic which quoted her half the price than LVC so went there, turns out with all the hidden extras it was more expensive! And her care wasn’t anything like what the London vision clinic provided!• They are not pushy! One thing that really bugged me when I asked for information from another clinics was they called me every other day hounding me to make a decision.• Eye drops are included, running out of eye drops? No problem they have them delivered to you NEXT DAY!• My eye was itchy so I called the clinic they had a doctor call me back within an hour and they sent me out a different type of eye drop that I arrived in less than 15 hours after speaking on the phone! All included!I am absolutely over the moon! 1 regret I have is I waiting so long to do it!Thank you LVC!! You are forever in my heart!!

I had corrective eye surgery earlier this year at the London Vision Clinic. The way in which the whole process has been handled is 1st class. The clinic ensured the whole experience was completed as safely and to the highest standards. I felt 100% confident at every stage that everything was being checked to ensure the procedure went smoothly. The results are excellent. No need for glasses at all. The follow up post procedure has been 1st class. Thanks to all involved.

I have worn a combination of spectacles and contact lenses for 35 years and am high myopic with astigmatism in both eyes. As I approached my 50th birthday, also began to experience the dreaded presbyopia.I conducted some research and noted that Which Magazine had listed the London Vision Centre as the Number 1 establishment in the UK for Laser Eye Surgery and I emailed for some advice. My Patient Care Co-Ordinator (Rhiannon) could not have been more accommodating and patiently answered my multitude of silly questions. She suggested that I visit the Centre for some diagnostic tests which would clarify my suitability or unsuitability for treatment. Due to my prescription Rhiannon advised that I was in the ‘High Profile’ category and that the treatment cost was fixed at £6,200. I travelled down and undertook a battery of tests with the Optometrist (Lizzie) who explained the function of each test and why it as necessary. I travelled back 3 days later to meet the legendary Professor Dan Reinstein who confirmed that I was the ideal candidate for ReLEx SMILE with Laser Blended Vision. He said that upon review I had fallen into the ‘Standard Profile’ and that the cost had reduced to £5,200. Professor Reinsten carefully went through all of the risks, patiently contextualising them so that I could relate to them and then, noting that I was a serving member of the UK Military, offered me a £500 discount which I gladly accepted.On the day of surgery I reported back to Harley Street having read all of the materiel and read the TrustPilot reviews. I was greeted by Nurse Ciara who immediately put me at ease, went through the process again, presented me with a small bag which contained eye drops, artificial tears, eye shields for sleeping in, Voltarol eye drops and even sleeping tablets to help me sleep that night if required.Ciara fed me chocolate and administered the numbing eye drops before accompanying me through into the Theatre where I was greeted by Professor Dan and his team. I was asked to lie down on the chair and manoeuvred into the optimum position. Professor Dan has an extremely relaxing voice, and he talked to me throughout the entire procedure, informing me what he was going to do and how I should respond, nothing came as a surprise. The eye lid was held open and a small suction cup began to lower over the exposed eye. Professor Dan asked me to focus on a small green light for about 25 seconds and then the suction cup was removed. I realised that the laser element of the surgery had completed already, the lenticule was removed and the Left eye was done in less than 3 minutes. The process was repeated on the Right eye before I was invited to sit up so that the Professor could examine the eye, place a protective contact lens in and escort me to recovery,Having suffered from two eye ulcers in the past, I was sceptical of the claims that there was no pain during surgery but I can honestly say that I felt nothing during the procedure, the numbing eye drops are extremely effective. I was worried before that I would want to blink during surgery; however, at no stage did I feel the need to, so effective were the drops. Professor Dan contacted me that evening to make sure that everything was well and I sept like a baby, with no pain as the anaesthetic eye drops wore off.The following day I returned to the clinic for Professor Reinsten to remove the protective contact lenses, confirm that the eye had already began to seal itself and verify that my eye sight was already above the legal limit for driving. As I had opted for blended vision, there is a period of time before I will realise the true benefits as the brain will need to learn how to interpolate the two images into one effective picture. Now 3 months post surgery my long range vision is superb, my reading vision is excellent and I could not be happier with the result.

I can say without a doubt this is the best decision I’ve made and it has been truly life changing.I can’t fault my treatment at London Vision Clinic, from the very first consultation to my current aftercare, the attention to detail has been second to none. My vision is better than ever and I would recommended London Vision Clinic to anyone!

I was a bit nervous about having eye surgery so did a lot of research beforehand. It transpired that Dan and his team are world leaders.I wasn't disappointed... they all took great care at every stage. The Lasik surgery was a complete success.Dan carried out the operation himself and followed up with appointments and messages to ensure the healing process took place as hoped.I probably could've found somewhere cheaper, but after all, you've gotta cut corneas... not corners...

Exceptional quality care given by outstanding medical professionals at a reasonable price. Why take a risk with something as fundamentally important as eyesight? Do not hesitate to use the best clinic in the UK (probably worldwide). If the royal family were having laser eye treatment I’m pretty sure this is where they would go. Excellent.

I was very scared to do the laser surgery and was recommended LVC by friend and I am so glad i did it! I keep wondering why i took so long. LVC was extremely patient and explained everything with great detail. I was flying in from Gibraltar so they were very considerate giving me back to back appointments and making sure i am aware of everything. Surgery went well, after care has been amazing. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for laser surgery 🙂

I received great service from the London Vision Clinic from start to finish. They are attentive and experienced. My surgery went very smoothly and they have regularly checked on me since then.

I can only say good things about the London Vision Clinic and can't recommend it enough!The whole team have been very attentative and professional in their assessment of my eyes, determining which procedure will be most suitable for me. The exams are very very thorough and over a few appointments to not only check and test your eyes properly but also to 'treat' them ahead of the operation for best results. I had dry eyes to begin with and so was given lubrication gel and drops to apply daily to help them ahead of the procedure.I was very anxious on the day of the operation. I had SMILE done. I have to say, the operation itself was absolutely nothing to worry aboout. Dr Carp completed the procedure on both my eyes in about 12 minutes, in and out of the theatre, the whole thing was really quick. He walked me through every stage, I felt absolutely nothing. To explain to my friends who are also interested in going through it, I compare it to going to the dentist where the laser eye operation is a 2 out of 10, and going to the dentist is a solid 8 (1 on the scale is easy and painless, 10 is exactly the opposite).The day after my surgery I could read parking signs across the street and departure boards at the train station, something I had to squint for even with my glasses before. My vision is now 20/20 and my quality of life without glasses has improved a lot. I can now take my baby daughter to swimming lessons without having to wear glasses in the pool; I don't have to deal with fogging up when wearing a mask; I can see myself in the mirror clearly, no need to get really up close... Getting my eyes done is by far one of the best decisions I ever made and choosing to do it at the London Vision Clinic as opposed to a high street clinic put me at ease and gave me huge confidence at the results.

This was the best clinic experience I ever had. I've been thinking about getting a laser eye surgery for years now, so I decided to do a bit of research because I wanted a trustful place. I found the London Vision Clinic and I am so glad I did. Right from the start I was welcomed with so much useful information and help. Every step of the process was carefully planned and informed. I was always made feel comfortable to ask any questions and never felt lost in the process. The environment in the clinic is clean and welcoming and what makes my experience really great was everyone that worked in that clinic was just the nicest person. From the start to the end I was received with nothing but smiles and kindness. The surgery itself was quick and easy, even though I was nervous my surgeon went trough all the steps of the surgery and made me feel very secure of the procedure as it was happening. I so happy I had Mr. Glenn Carp as my surgeon doctor, he was so nice and did such a fantastic job! As well as my amazing Optometrist Desiree Tood, which help me with all my questions and made sure I was ready for the surgery, and for that I am very grateful. The clinic also provided everything for my after care and it went really well. I am very happy with my results and all the amazing work from this clinic. If you are looking for a clinic that specialises in laser eye procedures I would definitely, without a doubt, recommend London Vision Clinic.

I heard about this clinic from a friend in Australia, who flew down JUST to use this specific eye clinic. This clinic has a global reputation for being the best. And when I had my eyes done you can see why. Extremely professional. And when it comes to your eyes, this is the type of clinic you want to deal with!

Amazing clinic, staff and procedures. Extremely professional and friendly, from first contact by phone to post operative care. I was extremely nervous about the surgery, but it truly was incredible, with no pain or discomfort at all. Would highly recommend.

I was originally turned down by optical express so I approached the London vision clinic who excelled in expertise. Their very thorough 3 hour assessment showed that I could in fact have laser eye surgery and they were able to offer the newer Keyhole SMILE version which resulted in virtually no discomfort whatsoever. I have ended up with better than 20 20 vision and I can't recommend the LVC enough. The communication and customer service was on another level. Highly recommend them. My entire experience has been life changing. Darren Platt

I can't recommend London Vision Clinic enough! They are so friendly and professional and always made me feel at ease. The pre-op process is so thorough and the procedure itself was so quick! After-care was great too, considering we were in lockdown, the staff go above and beyond within the limits to make sure you are ok and happy with the results. They gave me my vision back and I will be forever grateful for that.

The prospect of getting surgery, particularly eye surgey, can be daunting. But London Vision Clinic put me at ease every step of the way. I valued their communication and transpency and I appreciate that I can still text my surgeon several months post-surgery to ask a question and he will respond quickly. He also checks in occasionally. The clinic was honest about potential side effects before surgey too, talking me through the risks in a calm and clear manner, and patient with my numerous questions. The day of surgery was incredibly quick too, I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

London Vision Clinic provided a very professional, pleasant and thorough service. It was clear that all staff are very mindful of how important it is to get things right and I felt in very safe hands throughout. The immediate and long-term aftercare support is exceptional. I would recommend to anyone.

I had been skeptical about Laser Eye Surgery for a year or so but when I requested information I was contacted promptly, given a very detailed explanation of the process and what would happen, never felt pressured or pushed into making a decision and every single person at the clinic was friendly and professional. I would highly highly recommend this clinic to anyone thinking of corrective surgery - in 6 minutes (that's all it takes) I was out of the surgery and in recovery and didn't experience any itchiness either.

Very professional from start to finish. The clinic take you through all the steps thoroughly and the results are truly amazing! I went from having to wear glasses permanently to not needing them at all. One of the best decisions I’ve made and I have already recommended the clinic to multiple friends and family members!

I had a fantastic experience at London Vision Clinic. Every person I dealt with there were extremely professional & welcoming. I have no negative things to say here, only loads of positives and it seem I'm not the only one looking at all the other reviews left.Booking was swift, they accommodated my tight schedule as I wanted my procedure done as soon as possible. Everything was clearly explained and on the day of my procedure I was so nervous, but was put at ease by my amazing surgeon 'Mr Carp' and his team. I would also like to mention how fantastic their aftercare service is, they really do care for their patients and regularly checked on their recovery.It really is one of the best decision I've ever made. If anyone is thinking of doing Laser Eye Surgery I highly recommend this place!

I had the LASIK / Laser Blended Vision operation at the London Vision Clinic in October 2020 after 32 years of glasses and contact lenses. I was very impressed with the service from the start, very professional, and with everything I needed or was likely to need provided. Very happy with the outcome!

LVC has changed my life - if you're deciding whether to go or not, just go! They are excellent. Every day I am grateful for my new eyesight. I had ICL (implantable collamer lens) surgery in November 2020 and I now have 20/20 vision.I decided to go to LVC because they specialise in complex/high prescriptions. I never thought I would be able to get my vision corrected. I started wearing glasses when I was 4, had amblyopia surgery as a child, had progressively worse vision, reaching over -20 short-sightedness in the last few years, my mid-twenties. I also had a retinal bleed a couple of years ago so the vision in my right eye is partially obscured. In recent years, getting glasses from high street opticians has been a miserable experience, because they just don't see eyes with such complex prescriptions very much. Losing my glasses in the sea on holiday (horrifying) was the last straw in a lifetime of myopia!!!!I decided to look into the possibility of laser eye surgery and came across LVC. They have been wonderfully informative, professional and caring throughout. It became obvious that I wasn't eligible for the laser eye surgery, but the ICL surgery was possible for me. Vimal was the optometrist who talked me through everything and he taught me a lot about the anatomy and structure of my eyes, and he answered all my questions and made sure I was really well informed. I had several appointments leading up to the surgery itself, so that scans could be taken of my eyes, so they could be as sure as possible that the surgery was likely to go well - LVC definitely put the welfare of the patients first, and they are honest about if the surgery is a good idea or not for the individual patient.The surgery itself was spread over four days, so I had my left eye done first and then a follow up appointment on day two, and then my right eye on day three and four. The procedure is definitely strange and uncomfortable, but also very quick considering the detailed work they are doing, and I felt very calm in the hands of Professor Reinstein, who I had met before and who talked me through the surgery as he was going. I will never forget when the first lens was moved into my eye - the ceiling came suddenly into focus, I could see, and I just started crying!!!For the first month or so after the surgeries, I had to wear plastic guards over my eyes at night, and put regular drops in several times a day. They healed really fast, I had some follow-up appointments with eye tests, and everything had gone as planned. I am so happy with my eyesight!! It is now only about -0.25 so I can quite happily live day to day, read, drive, swim, everything. I wear reading glasses for using a computer and watching TV, just to sharpen things up completely, but even they are not always necessary.It is hard to understand how life changing this is if you are lucky enough to have good eyesight naturally. For me, being able to wake up and see each day is incredible and every day I am so glad and thankful for the amazing work of LVC. Their level of care is exceptional, I have always felt well looked after and well informed, which is exactly what I want when it comes to my eyesight - you are paying for the best, and I really think it is worth every penny. They have some good finance plans available too, so I am paying for my surgery over three years which works really well for me.Thank you so much to everyone at LVC!!! 🙂

Having relied on glasses since childhood and been able to see virtually nothing without them (-10 in both eyes), I can honestly say that the Laser Blended Vision treatment has been life-changing for me. This is thanks entirely to the London Vision Clinic and Professor Dan Reinstein.Throughout my initial consultation and on the day of the treatment I was reassured by their professionalism and had no doubt that I was doing the right thing by having the surgery. I don't think I could have trusted my eyes to anyone other than the best and after lots of research it became obvious to me that Professor Reinstein is the best.The results were immediately obvious for distance and I was able to throw away my glasses there and then. Four months on, my near vision has also improved to the point where I no longer need to wear reading classes other than for very detailed work.All in all it was money well spent and I wish I'd done it years ago. I'd recommend the London Vision Clinic to anyone in a similar position.

I chose London Vision Clinic for my laser eye surgery on a friend's recommendation and couldn't be more pleased with the experience or the result. I was unsure and a bit nervous about the surgery but I spoke to the clinic at length before committing. They talked me through the procedure and after care in great detail and put me at ease. The first appointment is where they take a lot of scans of your eyes and then you have a long appointment with one of the surgeons who measures and tests your eyes and eyesight. You then have a cooling off period of about a week to make sure you are sure about the procedure. The procedure itself lasted only minutes and everything I had feared proved to be unfounded. Nothing scary, no smell of burning! I stared at the red and green dots. That was all. Immediately after the surgery I had to keep my eyes closed as much as possible for a few hours - total bliss after Homeschooling in Lockdown! The Clinic gave me a small bag containing the drops and really clear instructions about the aftercare. I now have 20:20 vision. This was during Lockdown 3 and the Clinic were very careful with masks, distance, temperature checks, sanitiser etc. I highly recommend the London Vision Clinic.

Having reached the grand old age of 54, realised that my arms were not long enough to enable me to read the most basic things, as well as see the date on my watch, let alone having numerous pairs of readers in every room of the house, I was referred to the LVC and Dan Reinstein by a good friend.The process couldn’t be simpler and the staff couldn’t be more helpful and reassuring throughout the whole process. In addition, Dan is a guy at the top of his field and relies strongly upon the “personal touch” which is so often missing in businesses these days.For the most minimal time spent in theatre (a few minutes) with absolutely no pain or discomfort, in any such way, the results and in such a short space of time, are truly outstanding.It is often said that you can’t put a price on your health and you only get one set of eyes, so in my opinion I couldn’t think of a better way of spending or even investing this amount of money on yourself in a better way. Should have done it years ago !!!Having acted as the proverbial “guinea-pig” in this process, as that is how it works in my house, my wife is now booked in to undergo exactly the same procedure on Monday.

I would absolutely recommend the London Vision Clinic. They are one of the more expensive options but it is worth it. They are very professional, reassuring, go through different options, and the aftercare is second to none.
