A sight for sore eyes!

TV presenter Ruth Langsford delighted a group of guests at a recent VIP afternoon tea reception.  Hosted at the stunning venue of Foxhills in Surrey, Ruth, 53, shared the story of her wonderful new vision.

She explained to the 30 guests who were interested in Clarivu™, how her poor vision caused her no end of challenges at work: “Life before the procedure was very irritating and frustrating. It was particularly difficult at work if I had to switch from reading the autocue or interviewing guests to checking facts on my notes. I would need to have my glasses to hand at all times, to put them on to read my notes and then take them off again to speak to the guest.’

She really was eager to improve her vision and so she chose to have Clarivu permanent lens replacement, a procedure where the lens of her eyes was replaced with, technically advanced intra-ocular lenses which corrected both her long and short sight. The painless 20 minute procedure has left Ruth with perfect vision.

And no more glasses!

Speaking to the group Ruth described the impact Clarivu has had on her life, which she describes as ‘liberating and life-changing’.  She was also joined by five other delighted Clarivu patient ambassadors, giving interested people the opportunity to ask real life patients the truth about the procedure.

Ruth’s surgeon, Rob Morris, who is Medical Director at Optegra, clearly answered questions about the medical side of the procedure.

As guests enjoyed their afternoon tea, Ruth shared her joy: “Now I don’t have to carry the paraphernalia of glasses, reading glasses, driving glasses, prescription sunglasses, contact lenses – and I feel younger and more confident. I can look down at my script in the studio and read things without panicking about not having my glasses.  If you’re thinking of having Clarivu I’d definitely say ‘do it, do it, do it!’.
