- Refractive Lens Exchange
I’ve taken a while to write this testimonial as I wanted to get it right! I had refractive lens exchange at the end of 2021. I had both eyes done, a week apart and I cannot speak highly enough of the whole process from start to finish.
Prof. Gartry is so approachable. No question is too silly or unnecessary. He is happy to answer all questions right up to the surgery and beyond! Questions are also answered very quickly.
The whole team at Wimpole Street are lovely too – especially Christine, one of Prof. Gartry’s secretary’s who was in regular contact.
On the operation days, again the team at Moorfields were fantastic, from all of the nurses to the anaesthetist and of course Prof. Gartry himself who was reassuring throughout. Even though I didn’t understand a word of it, it’s lovely to hear him talk through and explain what is happening throughout the procedure.
The aftercare was easy to follow, everything was painless and again Prof. Gartry was there to check and reassure as things settled.
I began with around a -11 prescription in both eyes and am left with military vision in both eyes! I’ve gone from being completely reliant on contact lenses and glasses to not needing anything at all!
The results have exceeded my wildest expectations and certainly changed my life for the better. I cannot thank or recommend Prof. Gartry and his whole time highly enough.
