Review by Sam Carnall
Posted on 04/10/2013
Is it worth the expense? Is it really that good? Is Accuvision the right choice? YES, YES AND YES! I am a 23 year old male who has been dependant on glasses and / or contact lenses for as long as I can remember. Right from an early age it was apparent my vision demanded a high prescription and as such have had ‘milk bottle’ type spectacles ever since. At 18 I decided to make the transition from glasses to soft contact lenses mainly for freedom and ease of use. A few years passed and my eyes became irritated with over use, I swapped to rigid contact lenses which seemed to work until recently…. The irritation on my eyes coupled with numerous trips to the opticians led me to seek for an alternative. After weeks, perhaps even months, of trawling internet sites and in-depth research into laser eye surgery I decided to contact a few different clinics to discuss possible options, unfortunately though due to my high prescription (+6.25 and +5.50) I was told by most that I was an ‘unsuitable’ candidate. I then contacted Accuvision who claimed to be able to treat people who have been turned away by other clinics, (They can! But I’ll get to that a bit later on…) I made contact with Accuvision and after they had answered all my questions (and believe me, I had a lot,) I arranged a consultation at my nearest clinic, Solihull. On the day of my consultation I was met by an optometrist who answered a further list of questions honestly and with integrity, making it quite clear to me all the risks involved and likely outcomes. I think now would be a good time to say that after speaking to other clinics Accuvision didn’t once over promise and then not deliver, they were clear and consistent with their answers and made me feel as though I could approach them to obtain any amount of information. After a huge amount of thought and due-diligence I decided to take the plunge and book my surgery. On the morning of surgery I was naturally anxious but excited. The treatment itself was short and painless; at the most I would describe it as being ‘uncomfortable’ for a few minutes. After the treatment I was told to go home and rest, keeping my eyes closed as much as possible before returning the following day for a post-op check up. The morning after I was honestly shocked, I reached to put my glasses on, and everything became blurred, I took them off and everything was in HD (I still sometimes do this to this day!) It’s difficult to comprehend vision like this with out an aid if you’ve never needed glasses, but I knew instantly that the treatment was worth every penny. Over the next few weeks my vision varied in quality but soon found a level and seems to have maintained this. A few months down the line I’ve just been for my six month check up and I’m delighted to say I now have 20/20 vision. I’d therefore have no hesitation in recommending the surgery to anyone and would highly recommend the team at Accuvision.
