If you have never worn glasses you will not realise what a pain they are. Going on holiday was a nightmare - I needed my glasses in the swimming pool and the sea. If I took them off I had to squint to see where everyone was then I got a headache!

I went to Optimax on a Saturday when they had an Open Day and booked a consultation for two weeks later on a Friday. Later that day they said they could do the surgery there and then and twenty minutes later I had it done!

I have not looked back and that was two years ago. Since then I have been on holiday to Australia where I went snorkelling - I would not have been able to put the goggles over my glasses back then. I could see everything. Holidays are always fantastic now. I also referred my best friend and now like me she does not have to wear glasses.
