It can be a daunting task and it is essential you are happy and trust them. Extensive clinical experience and proven outcomes are key to getting the best result for you the patient.
I take pride in offering my patients a caring and personal service using recognised ‘best practice’. Working alongside other surgeons at LaserVision, I draw on our collective experience and employ a team-based, collaborative approach that allows the best outcomes for my patients.
Following a detailed and thorough examination using the latest state-of-the-art equipment, I believe a clear and detailed explanation of the problems at hand and the different management options available are essential to allow you, the patient, to make a fully informed decision on how best to proceed.
