Procedure: Lens Exchange with MFlex lens implants, March 09. Result: 6/6 N5 unaided : 20/20 sight in both eyes! "What made the London OC my choice for lens exchange surgery is that they provide a totally unique, highly professional and exceptional standard of service. From the minute I arrived for my first consultative appointment to my final post-op visit, my consultant, Mr Sharma and his team, made me feel as though my eyes and the welfare of my sight was just as incredibly important to him as it is to me. When you think about the possibility of not having sight – you can understand why this is the vital ingredient any patient must have, before they can confidently say they want to go ahead and have the surgery they really need.

The knowledge that Mr Sharma is a consultant surgeon who holds a consultant position in a London teaching Hospital and performs world class ophthalmic operations also gave me the confidence that the London OC look after the welfare of its patients with the latest technologies, bespoke lenses and techniques.

The staff at the London OC is second to none. They helped me feel relaxed and did not ask any awkward questions. Mr Sharma’s highly professional attitude paired with his down to earth method of relaying his knowledge and sense of humour, made me feel at ease about my decision to consider surgery and gave me the confidence when deciding to go ahead.

What raises the bar of excellence here is that Mr Sharma made me feel totally at ease at surgery and following the operation. He provided one to one telephone support on the days following the surgery, and examined the status of the completed procedure on a regular basis. He was always available to answer any question, however trivial, and most importantly never made me feel as though they were trivial. That means a lot.

All in all coming to the London OC has been the best decision I ever made. I have been incredibly fortunate to find such a dedicated consultant surgeon and his team to my disposal. Thank you to all the staff who have looked after me!"

Me acerqué con miedo, pues nunca había estado en un quirófano y sólo tengo dos ojos y la idea de que eran muy importantes para mi vida normal. Pero una vez en la Clínica, todo fué amabilidad y las más extensas explicaciones de la operación, lo que devino en seguridad personal. El resultado me tiene privada. Veo de lejos y de cerca, incluso el ordenador y el periódico. Me olvidé de las gafas y mi vida ha dado un salto cualitativo hacia adelante.

I had a lot of extra work and trouble because of my name. in my country your first name comes first and your family name is written last.so in two places I did not exist. In the clinic I was sitting from opening time to lunch time When i told them they paid my lunch. Otherwise everything was good. When it was discovered I had cataract the price jumped from 1600 € to 4900€ , but I am happy, I can see well and after I had a few days on the beach. before flying back home.All recommended.

Lasek is one of the laser eye surgery treatments that encompasses many of the benefits in other vision correction procedures.

The epithelial sheet is then replaced back on the surface of the eye and a delicate contact lens is implanted for a few days following the surgery to promote comfort. Most patients report dramatic results and significant improvements to their quality of vision.

Traveling for laser eye surgery overseas is popular trend catching on in the US and Europe, because of financial benefits medical tourist destinations provide, as well as the high quality of eye care service.
