Patient Stories

Pari Vandra tells the story of his laser eye surgery experience

How did Pari Vandra feel before laser eye surgery?

Before I had my laser eye surgery, I was shortsighted. I was probably minus six, so fairly blind and always had to wear contact lenses.

If I didn’t wear contact lenses, I had to wear glasses. And that was just a huge pain having to find my glasses in the morning and then wear contact lenses and change them and change the solutions, and forgetting to change the solution sometimes, and putting acid in my eyes.

How does Pari Vandra feel after the laser eye surgery?

My vision is generally a lot clearer because even though I was wearing glasses or contact lenses, there are lots of ongoing issues. Maybe your glasses are not the right number or right prescription. Maybe with contact lenses, you constantly have problems. They always don’t work properly. They get folded. They go up into your eyelid.

All those issues they don’t exist anymore.

When you go on holiday, you don’t need to think about bringing extra pairs of contact lenses. You don’t need to think about any of that.
