Review by Natasha Sardarizadeh

I had I had a consultation for laser eye surgery about two years ago but couldn't afford the treatment at the time. Recently, I have planned to travel to Australia and did not want the hassle of glasses or contact lenses while I was out there. I went to a few different clinics for a consultation but some of them were not able to help me because of my drier than normal eyes and they thought I would have 'corneal cracks' after surgery. I came back to Accuvision and they said I could try their alternative treatment called Trans-Epi or Trans Epithelial Surface Ablation or TESA. This is an advanced procedure that Accuvision have been offering to patients since 2005. It would not eliminate the dry eye condition but would certainly minimise the impact of laser eye surgery on the dry eye condition. The consultation was very informative and unpressured. and on the basis of what they told me in great detail I felt confident to book my surgery with them. I booked my surgery at the Parsons green clinic for Friday the 3rd October 2014. The day of surgery was fine, I came in with my dad and everyone was good to me. The surgeon, Mr Prashant Jindal was lovely. I was aware of what was going on but it was completely painless. During my follow up appointment the next day I was told the healing was delayed as my tears do not have as much oil as normal tears. But I was expecting that and by using the drops I have been able to manage my recovery well. I was given some more drops for the night and at one stage around midnight I got confused with the drops and called their 'out of hours' number to leave a message, but it was picked up straight away and my mind was put at ease. They even called the following Monday to check I was OK. I was quite surprised by this especially when reading the reviews regarding poor follow up. I found the staff at Accuvision to be incredibly friendly and I was followed up quite closely, especially as my epithelium was healing from scratch. It was really appreciated. Since the surgery a month ago I can't believe the difference to my life. I was on Putney Bridge earlier and I could see the bus all the way across, I am sure I couldn't do that, even with my glasses. It feels so weird not wearing glasses anymore, especially not having to constantly take them off and clean them every time it rains. I would recommend laser eye surgery with Accuvision to anyone. Australia is going to be so much easier to enjoy, I'm looking forward to it even more now!
