Around 18 months ago I decided to have laser eye surgery as I could no longer get on with contact lenses. During my consultation it was recommended that I have mono vision treatment due to my age. I decided to go along with this as I did not want to swap long distance glasses for reading glasses. The operation was painless and very quick, but I was left in discomfort for a couple of days afterwards.

However, this was aided by sleeping tablets and painkillers which I was given. The treatment was not instantly successful and due to my impatience I was constantly on the phone to Optimax seeking reassurance. After a couple of months I got used to the mono vision and now 18 months later I can honestly say it is one of the best things I have done in my whole life.
