I have always been wary of having anything done to my eyes as I caught shingles on my face as a young man. This flares up reasonably regularly and contributed to my reluctance. As my sight deteriorated I was obliged to wear spectacles. I still play tennis and golf and my poor eyesight was causing me some problems. Also I did not enjoy wearing daily contact lenses. However, Mr Rehman at the Optegra Eye Hospital Yorkshire convinced me that he could improve my vision and I went ahead with lens replacement surgery earlier in this year. I have not suffered any problems whatsoever and I am delighted with the outcome.
