To anyone who is thinking of having this done, I would say see Simon Levy and know that you would be looked after very well

Bilateral Lasik for long sight and astigmatism (Glasses prescription Right eye: +1.00/-0.50×170 Left eye: +1.50)

‘My eyesight was such that on waking my first task was to put on my glasses. I became very disappointed when I realised I would have to wear them all the time.

I decided to enquire about laser/lasik treatment and Simon was recommended by my optician, who felt that as I was older I would benefit from Consultant care rather than ‘pit stop surgery’ His expression, not mine!

I attended the consultation with a host of questions which Simon took time to answer carefully. The examination was very thorough and I felt quite confident in him and his work.

I liked the idea of the aftercare that would be available and it certainly helped to allay any fears I may have had.

The procedure was a success! To the point that 48 hours after treatment I was asked by my husband not to show off as I could now read the titles of the DVD’s on the shelf some 8 feet away!

To anyone who is thinking of having this done, I would say see Simon Levy and know that you would be looked after very well, who knows? You too may be able to show off to family and friends and ditch the glasses!’
