Georgie influencer LASIK

LASIK laser eye surgery for busy lifestyles


In February of this year, we treated our lovely patient Georgie with LASIK laser eye surgery. Georgie is a former reality TV star but now works as an influencer spreading body positivity and bringing women together on Instagram. She struggled with glasses and contact lenses for several years and, with her job involving modelling, travelling and a generally busy lifestyle, it was quite often a nuisance.


We spoke to Georgie about her LASIK experience at Optimax to hear how she’s getting on three months after having treatment in our Finchley Road clinic in London.


What made you want to get laser eye surgery?

I wanted to not have to wear contact lenses every day. With my lifestyle and work, I can travel a lot and I wanted to be able to wake up and see and go. I often would forget my contact lenses and glasses and would need to leave early due to being unable to see. 


How strong was your prescription prior to surgery?

I was -2.5 in both eyes. (This is a moderate prescription, meaning that Georgie relied on glasses or contact lenses almost all the time)


What was the Optimax experience like in the London Finchley Road clinic?

It was absolutely amazing - everyone was so lovely and really put me at ease. It was 10/10 the whole way through!


How was your recovery process?

Really easy - I had no problems and it was nice being able to get checked afterwards at aftercare appointments to put my mind at ease.  (After LASIK surgery, most patients recover in just a few days as your eyes can heal naturally relatively quickly)


How has life changed after treatment?

I am so grateful to have my vision back. Three months on, I’m still standing at my window reading car number plates because I can’t quite believe it!


What made you choose Optimax?

The reviews! When I asked my followers on Instagram, they all recommended Optimax as their customer experiences were great. I had also heard that Optimax are a very well-known company for eye surgery. After my first consultation, I just knew they were the right decision for me!
