I’d taken a passing interest in laser eye surgery over the last 10 or so years, as I’ve had short sight at -4.75 in each eye since the age of 14 and have worn glasses and then contact lenses. The lenses have never caused me problems and I’ve worn them more for the fact that I play squash than for vanity. But I’d always dismissed laser surgery as being too “new” and untested and like most people was concerned about my eyes! I was also aware that the procedures in the past were not too good with many people who reported poor night vision and other complications.
What convinced me to go with Accuvision was a combination of their extremely thorough examination of my eyes – telling me things no optician before has picked u[ on, together with the clearly very advanced technology they employ – I checked with other clinics and they seemed very low tech in comparison.
I was advised that at my age –sort of mid 40s! – the need for reading glasses would have been delayed by my short sight but could kick in as soon as I had perfect distance vision restored. So I went ahead with the “monovision” they recommended. This basically corrected one eye to perfect and the other slightly under this giving me good near and far sight.
The surgical procedure was so easy, there was a slight discomfort that evening and now I have absolutely perfect eyesight, don’t notice the slight under-correction in my left eye and don’t have any need for reading glasses. Their aftercare has been as thorough and detailed as their initial consultation and surgery.
