Thank you for giving us a 5-star rating on Trust Pilot

When a patients leaves the clinic on the day of the procedure, they may think this is the end of their journey with us.

Why are independent reviews so useful?

It’s Friday night, and instead of hitting the usual dinner spot you and your partner decide to try somewhere new. But rather than strolling up and down the streets of Marylebone, casually browsing menus, peering through windows, and trying desperately not to start an argument, you reach for your phone.

Ten people you may know that have had Laser Eye Surgery

They eat, sleep, and worry about their health; they struggle with finding free time, and often have problems with their finances. Their process for finding the best… Read more

Using Research To Choose Your Laser Eye Surgery Provider

“The post-op care is second to none and whoever decides they want treatment here, you will not be disappointed. I wish I had gone and had it done sooner!” -Angela It is not uncommon for many of our patients to be led, driven, or guided to us through months (or even years!) of extensive research.
