I can highly recommend the Blended Vision treatment at Focus.
My prescription was -1.75 (distance) and + 1.50 (near vision) – I have been wearing glasses since I was 22 and contact lenses for about 20 years. I was nervous but very keen to have the procedure done.
From start to finish the team at Focus come across as very professional but also warm and friendly and helpful and above all, very thorough.
Focus don’t do work that is unnecessary to do, so as I am in my 50’s where my near sight will continue to deteriorate over the next 5-8 years, they recommended that I only have my right eye operated on to improve my distance vision at this time.
They explained that if I had the treatment on my left eye at this stage that I would only have to have the procedure repeated later in my 50’s and also assured me that operating on right eye would also allow me to have a better mid range which would help my near sight anyway. This also meant that my recovery time would be quicker.
I met David Allamby on the day of the operation (I could have met him before but opted to meet him on the day). We had plenty of time together to review all my results and discuss the procedure in detail. He also explained that his percentages for eye correction are higher than his direct competitors (I believe he achieves 98% to 20/16 – which is better than 20/20 vision!- amazing!). He made me feel like I was in really safe hands and was sympathetic to my pre-op nerves.
The operation only took 3 minutes as I had only one eye treated. It didn’t hurt and I had 20/20 vision back within 5 minutes and took the train home. My eye was a little sore for the afternoon but I was able to watch TV and use my phone and iPad later that day. The follow up care is very good, with plenty of checks and clear instructions for do’s and dont’s.
I am very pleased with the improvement to my distance vision and also how easily I have got used to blending the sight of both eyes for doing everything.
In summary I have been totally delighted by the whole process and I am currently recommending David and the team at Focus to all my friends who are considering laser treatment. It really is worth that little bit extra to know that you have the one of best surgeons in the world performing your operation.
Thank you David and all the team at Focus!
