Matt Johnson had his laser eye surgery at Focus Clinic at the beginning of July and is delighted with his new vision. Matt is already referring his friends to come to see us. Thank you Matt!
He had been considering to take the plunge for a long time and he got recommended Focus clinic by a fellow TV presenter Laura Whitmore, who also entrusted Dr. Allamby with her eyes.
Matt’s LASIK Procedure
Understanding the importance of his eyes for his work, he knew that he had to entrust them to the right people.
Glasses are not an option for television studios as they reflect light. He also tried contact lenses but they made his eyes dry out. The solution? Refractive surgery!
Matt is delighted with the result of his treatment. Just 30 minutes after surgery, he could read the small 20/20 letters on the test chart.
One of the reasons why Matt chose Dr. 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 Matthew’s. Dr. Allamby had also treated many celebrities including some who are Matt Johnson’s personal friends, such as Laura Whitmore.
The procedure took just 10 minutes for both eyes and was performed under local anaesthesia using numbing drops. As a patient, Matthew 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 30 minutes later – after an eye check with Dr. Allamby – went off home.

'The service at Focus has been amazing, I have already recommended to multiple friends and family members. Dr. Allamby and his staff have all been fantastic, my overall experience far exceeded my expectations'
In common with over 10 million Britons, Matt 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 Matt, 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, Matt no longer needs glasses for anything.
