Wow... fantastic, amazing, wonderful! I could go on and on about this simple yet life changing surgery. I'm 33 years old, worn glasses and soft contact lenses since I was age 16 and hated them. My prescription was -4.75 left eye d-4.25 right eye with a mild astigmatism. I love swimming and the gym, especially running, but my contact lenses did not.

They would dry out, fall out, fold up on themselves, smear with make up and float off my eyes if I went underwater when I swam. At night when I wore my glasses I had to keep them under the pillow during the night so I could find them to look at the clock in the night and to see my way around when I needed the loo or to see my kids. Enough was enough, so when my parents asked me what I wanted for my birthday I asked for laser eye surgery. I was terrified about the procedure (the thought of my eye being cut into) but I didn't feel a thing and knew I could see after only a few hours.

On the way home I was reading number plates, road signs and within 24 hours I felt like a different person. My confidence is sky high; I love wearing make-up again and would recommend Optimax to anyone without hesitation. Fast, friendly and I can't thank them enough for giving me my life back. Wonderful, fantastic!
