Ever since I can remember I have had to wear glasses. I have had to wear them since I was about 5 years old, I am now 25. My sight was quite bad, to be able to see something without my glasses it could be no more than a couple of inches away from my face. And because I was so short sighted, I was only able to wear hard contact lenses. Having tried them many times, I found them very uncomfortable and couldn’t get on with them so this was never an option for me.

To be able to see without glasses is absolutely amazing, it is something I never thought I would be able to do. To wake up in the morning and not have to feel around to find my glasses is great! To go swimming and actually be able to see is also an amazing experience for me.

At first I was very nervous about the surgery, but all the staff at the Centre for Sight and the McIndoe Surgical Centre were very friendly and made me feel completely at ease. I now have 20/20 vision. I couldn’t have asked for more! I will be forever grateful to Mr Daya and all his staff for giving me my sight back!

I would certainly recommend this surgery to anyone who is considering it!
