I would recommend this procedure if you are having difficulty with your current means of sight correction. I developed a corneal ulcer from contact lens wear and so needed an alternative. I found the pressure on my eye from the part of the procedure needed to facilitate the corneal flap lift was the worst part of the surgery – I didn’t feel the laser at all. The inserts and numbing drops to stop any blinking felt a bit weird and uncomfortable but still manageable. I think it’s important not to take the surgery lightly and to prepare yourself accordingly.

After the first surgery I was still wearing glasses for a very low prescription (-0.5) whenever I needed to see to the furthest reaches of my vision, or in (for example) busy train stations, but found (especially with the facemask fog) I wanted to get this corrected out too, and Professor Gartry was subsequently able to remove this small remaining shortsightedness so I no longer need to wear glasses at all. Very happy with the end result.

Great experience from start to finish. Dr Gartry is great and makes you feel very relaxed. Delighted with the result.

Life Changing. A statement often used but in this case, it really is true. I started wearing glasses at the age of 7 and contact lenses at 15. My prescription was -11.5 so I relied on them every day – I couldn’t even trust myself to get out of bed in the mornings without putting my glasses on. I’ve always had a fear of someone leaving me in a room and taking my glasses/contact lenses off me – I simply wouldn’t be able to move. My activities were also restricted- swimming- or simply just making sure I always had glasses or spare lenses with me. After a few years of wondering whether I’d be suitable for treatment, I decided to take the plunge find out. I choose Moorfields. With only one pair of eyes, I wanted the best. Professor Gartry was recommended to me and from the first time I saw him, his gentle manner put me at ease. He explained that I wasn’t suitable for Laser treatment but that RLE was a definite option for me. There was no pressure at all and I came away with a lot of reading and research to do which I duly did and then booked the procedure a few months later. I would be having Multi Focal Torique Lenses. Even at this stage, the actual thought that I would be able to see with my own eyes still seemed a dream. On the day of my first operation, I arrived at Moorfields and from the moment I did so, all the staff were lovely. I was made to feel very comfortable and, although the realisation that I was about to change my life still seemed surreal, I wasn’t too nervous. Professor Gartry came in to see me and he was just as calm as I remembered. The actual operation itself – in two parts – laser to dissolve my own lense, then the surgery to put a new lense in was, quite simply, for me an absolute doddle! At not point could I feel anything or see anything – my slight concern – but could hear Professor Gartry talking the whole time. It all seemed very quick and I was soon on my way home, with my eye bandaged up. The next morning I did feel a little nervous sitting at my dressing table, taking the bandages off but it was absolutely amazing! I sat there, looking around my bedroom, using my own eye. To some, that may sound weird, but to those of us with such high prescriptions, it unbelievable. My eye was a little bloodshot but straight away I could see so well. I started on drops that day and had to wear a clear eye shield for one week at nighttime. I think night was when I noticed it more – just getting in and out of bed without the need to put glasses on was something I actually got used to very quickly. 7 days later, I had my other eye done. Over the next 6 weeks my eyesight improved. I’ve just had my final appointment with Professor Gartry and, following an eyesight test, my new prescription is -0.5. An absolutely amazing result from -11.5, Ive decided to get glasses just for night driving to make sure the car headlights are crystal clear but for all other aspects of my life, I won’t be wearing any. And, after 40yrs of wearing glasses, that still seems incredible to say. This operation, without a doubt, is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I would whole heartedly recommend Professor Gartry and Moorfields- they really have changed my life

Excellent results in vision
Very good communication, oral and written. Hence I was well prepared for the process of surgery and the (minimal) side effects. Efficient and compassionate care

In reviewing Professor David Gartry and his teams, both at Wimpole Street and Moorfields Eye Hospital, I can confirm that they provided a hugely professional approach to eye surgery combined with a very efficient and reassuring experience throughout. The surgery was made comfortable, painfree and straightforward. The results are outstanding, restoring a level of vision that is exceptional and which has transformed day to day living. I can heartily recommend Professor Gartry at the Wimpole Eye Clinic.

Having a very high prescription of -8.50 prior to surgery, LASEK has been life changing. I am so happy to now have 20/20 vision, thank you Professor Gartry.
