The following post has been left on my website
this evening in relation to Ultralase staff losing their
jobs after Optimax owner Russell Ambrose placed it
into administration.


(Quoted earlier this year)
In December 2012 Optimax owner
Russell Ambrose bought "Ultralase Ltd” for an
alleged £10 million.

Less than a year later he put the company into administration
and rid himself of millions of pounds worth of debts -
and presumably tax owed to HMRC.

It would appear from the post written that it is not just laser
eye surgery victims who are having their lives ruined! :(

This man is sick! He knows what the risks are and still encourages his kids to mess with their eyes!

Who was the surgeon who did his eyes?

Definitly desperate if he has to advertise a medical procedure on ebay so shoud make people worry that if he's in financial trouble what happens if he goes broke like with Ultralase??

"Nowadays, Optimax operates optical care clinics throughout the UK and has used laser eye surgery to correct the minor visual impairments of around 350,000 patients.[6]"

Minor? What's he call minor?

Last month Sasha Rodoy issued court proceedings against Russell Ambrose for breach of agreement. He followed with a counterclaim. I will be called as a witness along with a number of other damaged Optimax patients!

Optimax failed to provide me with the Lifetime Aftercare guaranteed in the agreement I signed before my surgery on the 10th June 2011

Yesterday I issued my own court proceedings against Russell Ambrose and Optimax Clinics Unlimited.

If Optimax have failed to provide you with your aftercare - eye drops, etc… please contact me and I will help you with your legal claim.

It is not expensive - £185 for a £5,000 claim - and if you win Optimax have to pay your court costs ;)

I cannot understand WHY the government is allowing this to go on? I had to wait months to see an NHS consultant after my GP referred me with a serious condition (I am not saying the problems anyone is suffering from eye surgery are not serious). Then I waited another six months before I was able to have the operation I desperately needed.

There is an accepted shortage of funding and services within the NHS so why is wealthy businessman Russell Ambrose allowed to get away with burdening the NHS with the costs of treating his patients left with problems after being operated on at Optimax and Ultralase??

Russell Ambrose ultimately took the money for his obviously incompetent surgeons to operate on these patients and it is Russell Ambrose who should be meeting the costs for decent surgeons to fix the problems they've caused! NOT the NHS and NOT the tax payer.

I will be writing to my MP about this because it is not right by any stretch of the imagination!

An NHS surgeon working for Optimax is unethically sending patients to the NHS for help with post op problems to save his employer (Russell Ambrose) money!!

A few weeks ago a young woman contacted me with details of the serious problems she is suffering after surgery performed by Optimax Medical Director, Dr Amir Hamid, who is also worryingly employed by the NHS!

Last week the woman met with Optimax surgeon Dr Samer Hamada - who is also employed by the NHS.

Dr Samer Hamada joined Optimax in 2013 and deals with their many problem patients who are sent to see him at the Ultralase/Optimax clinic in Harley Street.


Expecting help from Dr Hamada the young woman was surprised when he told her that Optimax do not have the expertise or facilities to help her any further!

Lifetime aftercare guarantee?

Instead, Dr Samer Hamada told the Optimax patient to ask her GP for a referral to an NHS specialist - and refused to provide any aids or treatment to help her chronic dry eyes and MGD because he said they wouldn’t give her long term relief and were TOO EXPENSIVE!

Would Samer Hamada tell his NHS patients this I wonder?

The scam works like this:

• Patient pays Optimax to have treatment - Optimax profits.
• Patient has problems - Optimax can’t or won’t help.
• NHS surgeon working for Optimax tells patient to go to NHS - at NO cost to Optimax.
• NHS pays for patient’s expensive reparative treatment + medication.
• Optimax save money - CEO Russell Ambrose is very happy with pet NHS surgeon.

Btw, the government also pays sickness/unemployment benefits to patients unable to work due to surgery gone wrong at Optimax and other high street clinics.

Russell Ambrose owns Ultralase Eye Clinics Ltd - which must not be confused with Ultralase Clincs Ltd because Russell put that into administration to write off millions in debt!

Sasha Rodoy and MP John McDonnell have advised the government that the high street industry is costing the NHS millions of pounds - but the government are listening to industry lobbyists!

Optimax CEO Russell Ambrose asked to meet with John McDonnell earlier this year:
"I have noted your interest in regulation of laser eye surgery. I would like to meet with a view to discussing how I can support you in this area."

John’s PA advised Russell that the MP was too busy and he should meet with Sasha Rodoy, who is working closely with John campaigning for government regulation.

Russell has met with Sasha many times, but the last thing he wants to talk about is regulation, so I wonder what he intended to offer John ;)
