Jassa Ahluwalia is an English actor and presenter, most famous for his work on the BBC television series Some Girls, the film The Whale and presenting the Disney Junior TV show Art Attack.
Actors James Cosmo and Matthew Macfayden who had worked with Jassa recommended him Focus clinic and Dr. Allamby.
Jassa’s LASIK Procedure
Jassa has always wanted to have the surgery done. He got on with it in 2015 at Focus clinic.
Understanding the importance of his eyes for his work, Jassa knew that he had to entrust them to the right people.
Jassa is delighted with the result of his treatment. Just 20 minutes after surgery, he could read the small 20/20 letters on the test chart.
One of the reasons Jassa chose Mr. Allamby as his surgeon is that our medical director has a 100% success rate for 20/20 vision for all common short-sighted prescriptions, including Jassa’s. Dr. Allamby had also treated many celebrities, including some who worked with Jassa on movie sets such as James Cosmo or Matthew Macfadyen.
The procedure took just 10 minutes for both eyes and was performed under local anaesthesia using numbing drops. As a patient, Jassa was very cool and calm, taking it all in his stride, he sat down afterwards with a cup of coffee, chatted with the team and 20 minutes later.
About Jassa Ahluwalia
Jassa Ahluwalia is a British actor. Born in Coventry. He is British-Indian descent which makes him fluent in Punjabi. He pursued his passion for languages at University College London, studying Russian and Spanish. In 2010, he decided to focus on his career.
Jassa landed his first lead at sixteen via open auditions in a British independent musical feature film. Despite the involvement of accomplished creatives the film was never released but the process was an education in filmmaking and got Jassa into facing more the reality of the movie industry.
'It's like there was a curtain that had been in front of my eyes for so many years and now it has been lifted up'
In common with over 10 million Britons, Jassa suffered from myopia, the medical term for short-sight, together with some mild astigmatism. It typically begins between ages of 6-18 and progresses often until the 20s. Once stable, most people are eligible for surgery. A comprehensive screening process is necessary to exclude patients who may be at higher risk.
As with Jassa, Dr. Allamby takes a very risk-averse approach and this has been rewarded with a 100% success rate for 20/20 vision for all typical short-sighted prescriptions.
After having LASIK advanced eye surgery at Focus, a technique pioneered in the UK by our founder and medical director Dr. David Allamby, Jassa no longer needs glasses for anything.
