6 weeks ago I underwent lens replacement surgery as my near , intermediary and distance vision had deteriorated to a point that it was impacting on all aspects of my life. I was frustrated with having to rely on glasses for VDU work, I needed varifocals for driving and watching television and could no longer wear my designer sunglasses. I also felt that my side vision was affected by glasses. I had the initial consultation with Dr Rehman in December and before I knew it the next week had my first eye surgery. As I am an anxious person I thought it best to get it done quick and not allow myself time to think about the procedure too much. I needn't have worried. I took the offer of a mild sedative to calm my nerves and the procedure was over in 15 minutes. It was uncomfortable but not painful. It is strange having short bursts of pressure on your eye but I never felt pain. Although I was a little overwhelmed after surgery I had gathered myself after 5 minutes and a cup of tea and as I knew what to expect for the second eye I was much calmer the next week. The results were instant. The vision in my eye was amazing even when my husband was driving me home after the surgery. I could read number plates! I never had a single issue post surgery. I administered my drops and bathed my eyes every day as advised. I never suffered any form of discomfort or gritty eyes which quite literally was amazing in the following 6 weeks. Would I get this done again knowing what I know now? DEFINETELY? Would I recommend this to someone else that was suffering the same eye issues I was? DEFINETELY? This has changed my life. I feel more confident and unrestricted by what I can do. Dr Rehman and his bedside manner and reassurance is fantastic and I hope he knows how grateful I am to him. If I could give anyone reading this review and thinking of the procedure but scared about what it entails some advice ,it would be just go for it. The results far outweigh any fears you may have and a consultation will put your mind at rest. Thank you Optegra staff and Dr Rehman for a professional service.
