I had my surgery late in the afternoon. Prior to the surgery, my prescription was -6.5 in my left eye and -5.5 with a slight astigmatism in my right eye. Having got home I spent a couple of hours in a darkened room but by later in the evening I was comfortable watching a TV.

But it was the next morning that was a revelation. Having been back for my check up the next morning I was told what I already suspected – namely that my vision was now excellent. 20/16 in my left eye and 20/12 in my right eye a mere 18 hours after surgery. I’ve been lucky enough to have no itchiness and no dryness. It’s been remarkable.

Many thanks to Allon Barsam – he did a remarkable job. Many thanks also to the other members of the clinical and administrative team. They were professional and friendly throughout.
