Mary Portas

20/20 clinic

After having been fed up with wearing contact lenses and glasses for years, Mary Portas decided to come to Focus Clinic for her treatment. She had LASIK Blended Vision.

The procedure was over in minutes and has allowed Mary to carry on with her professional and personal life with the minimum of fuss.

Mary’s LASIK Procedure

Blended vision for presbyopia is different from monovision where each eye has a single point of focus, one near and one far. The increased depth of field with LASIK blended vision allows each eye to have a range of focus and a significantly better visual experience for the patient.

Having always relied on contact lenses or glasses during her career, eye treatment was something that Mary had considered but never taken the plunge until discovering Focus. She discussed how she could barely read her tv prompts on occasion and found contact lenses irritating.

Having her eyes corrected at Focus Clinic has been liberating for Mary.

'I was recommended Focus by a friend who has reported excellent results and service. I have certainly not been disappointed. My vision is now perfect'

Mary is delighted with the result of her treatment. One of the reasons Mary chose Dr. Allamby as her surgeon is that our medical director has a 100% success rate for 20/20 vision for all common short-sighted prescriptions, including Mary’s.

The procedure took just 10 minutes for both eyes and was performed under local anaesthesia using numbing drops. As a patient, Mary was very cool and calm. She said the intervention was painless. She sat down afterwards with a cup of tea and phoned her friends and family telling them how happy she was.
