After developing problems with visibility whilst driving in the dark and other problems with my vision, my optician advised me that I needed cateract surgery. I was very nervous about it initially, however, a consultation with Mr. Nguyen gave me the confidence to proceed and I elected to have lens replacements. The whole procedure was explained in my pre-op session at the hospital and I left feeling reassured. During my first operation the theatre nurse held my hand throughout the procedure which only lasted about 15 minutes and was completely painless. When I removed my protective eye guard the next morning I couldn't believe the difference in my vision in that eye, even colours were brighter. My second operation was 12 days later and I am absolutely delighted with the results. For me this has been a life changing procedure and I can't thank Mr. Nguyen and the team at Optegra enough.
I cannot thank or recommend Mr Dan Nguyen from Optegra Clinic Didsbury enough. He has given me my good eyesight back after two cataract operations. I always thought my car windscreen was dirty when I was driving and my colours were yellowish and thought my tv needed resetting. I was very wary of having the op. , however he was very calming, caring and carefully cured my nerves. The op only took 15 minutes for each eye and the results were instant and amazing. Today I was signed off and he told me I now have 20/20 vision.
Procedure went very smoothly and pleased with the result. Aftercare was straightforward and no problems at all. Improved sight which is very nice!
I've been completely pleased with the way my surgery has gone, how quickly it was done and the results are great!
