If you’re reading this, my guess is that you’re surfing the net comparing laser eye surgery clinics. I did too. I even booked a consultation with one company, but then looked a little closer (if you’ll pardon the short-sighted pun!) and felt somewhat suspicious of the ‘buy one, get one free’ approach. I cancelled it when I found Centre for Sight in East Grinstead.

It’s a well-worn phrase but to say it was one of the best things I’ve ever done is not overstating it. As a police officer I was anxious that I would still be able to perform my job, even though I’d managed to get by for fifteen years with contact lenses and spectacles, correcting my -3.25 myopia and poor astigmatism. I shouldn’t have worried for one moment. The day after surgery I returned for my first check up and was astounded to learn I had 20/20 vision. It is life-changing. My vision is absolutely clear, especially at night, whereas before I struggled with depth of field – that fuzzy, ill defined grey-black caused by my astigmatism.

If I had to sum the company up I’d say they are an ethical, caring and thoroughly professional team. You might want to carry on surfing the net or you might choose to book a consultation with Centre For Sight. I’m glad I did.
