And before I rest my weary head, latest news on me and Russell Ambrose aka Optimax...

Russell couldn't afford not to fight my recent claim - read 'Particulars of Claim' :kiss:

And by doing so he has saved me the cost of legal fees to instruct a contract lawyer and issue court proceedings to determine the definition of 'unlimited' - as I'd always planned to do at some point!

I was a 'perfect candidate' according to Optical Express yet ended up wishing to have the pre surgery sight and quality of life!

Optimax have introduced a 'new service' that allows prospective patients to know the likely results of their surgery!

'Every Patient Results Forecast is unique, as it is tailored to your prescription, age and location. It uses live patient data to provide feedback, giving you an accurate representation of your likely treatment outcome.


The only way the ‘location’ could affect your treatment would be if the equipment and standard of treatment differed at each clinic!

The ad writers didn’t think that one through, eh Russell?!

And as for a 'new service'...

In February 2011, at my Optimax pre lasek surgery ‘consultation’, I was given contact details for eight previous patients of ‘similar age and prescription’.

I called all of them... two numbers were unavailable, three didn’t answer, one person didn’t know what I was talking about, but Jackie told me her vision was great - she'd had lasik and was sixteen years younger than me!

The only person close to my age with similar (pre lasek) prescription was Maggie, but when I called she was in bed with flu and vague about her results.

Later in 2011, collecting evidence for my initial claim against Optimax, I called Maggie again. This time she was happy to talk and told me that she’d suffered problems post op and had needed NHS treatment.

Earlier today I decided to call Jackie. I updated her on what had happened to me and asked how her eyes are five years post surgery.

No surprise when she told me she’s back to wearing glasses for distance - and that her local optician told her Optimax should have made it clear that the results would be temporary, which she assured me they did not!

According to Optimax Medical Director, psychic Amir Hamid (aka Hammy Hamster), ‘Accurately predicting a patient’s result allows them to make an informed decision regarding treatment and means that we can ensure high levels of satisfaction.


There is not one ophthalmic surgeon I know of who would agree that it is possible to ‘accurately’ predict a patient’s result!

And Hammy’s claim that a patient is making an informed decision because of this nonsense is going to be fantastic evidence for lawyers representing damaged Optimax patients in the future!

Shortly before he irreparably damaged my eyes Dr Wilbert Hoe told me that my eyes were 'perfect’ for this procedure - obviously he wasn't psychic!

Optimax have never asked me to leave my Patient Testimonial and talk to prospective customers, yet I'd be extremely happy to do so!

I noticed that Optimax have reintroduced Lifetime Aftercare...

But for how long this time :kiss:

Hi Nick

So sorry to read your story. My eyes were also ruined, at the SAME clinic - Optimax Manchester, by the SAME surgeon - Seethappa Madhusudan. :evil:

I had LASIK on both eyes in November 2012. Following the surgery I suffered terrible depression for several years due to the damage to my eyes.

Right now, my eyes are no better, but I'm feeling ok, time has allowed me to find acceptance of what has happened. I've had to get to this point to stay strong for my two young children.

I try to live life normally again, but the horrors never leave me
- fluctuating vision
- light sensitivity
- dry eye
- ghosting
- eye strain everyday

I too travelled the country from Manchester, to Nottingham, to London, looking for answers.

I feel so sad, seeing time and time again more people going through the same horrendous experience.

Best of luck with getting more attention to your website www.optimaxruinedmyeyes.co.uk/

Hi everyone!

My name is Nick Roberts, I'm 27 and unfortunately had lasik eye surgery at Optimax Manchester clinic in September 2015.

The biggest mistake of my entire life.

This is what’s happened to me in the last 10 months:
19 visits back to Manchester Optimax clinic (140 mile round trip)
1 visit to Optimax Leeds clinic to see a 'specialist'
2 visits to my local eye hospital
1 visit to accident and emergency
Thousands of pounds on drops/gels/ointments/humidifiers/eye packs/sunglasses etc
Depression and anxiety

I suffer from:
Dry eyes
Ghosting (double vision)
Severe eye redness and the growth of veins.

I recently went to a meeting with my surgeon Seethappa Madhusudan and the manager of Optimax Manchester clinic, where it was admitted that there is NO 'fix' for my eyes, the only option is to monitor them and try to live my life.

I actually cried.

My eyes have been ruined by Lasik, it has altered my life, my well being and I am going to pursue justice to the end.

I discovered too late that Dr Seethappa Madhusudan has damaged a number of other people’s eyes - including Ashley Bures aka 'Mr Abs' who used to own 'Optimax Ruined My Life.co.uk' website that vanished along with his Facebook page and review site!

I have set up a new website to warn prospective Optimax and Ultralase customers of the risks they face at these clinics - both owned by Russell Ambrose.

Twitter & Facebook too - please post your stories there!

Back with more about me soon! B)

Since my eyes were trashed 9 years ago I've had recurring nightmares, but now I've had a new one, because I cannot believe that I recently saw an Optimax advert with a girl supposedly painting/drawing at an easel!
5 years at art school taught me that the foundation stone for artists is to learn to draw and that this involves training yourself to use your eyes, really, really use your eyes, to observe and study.
Artists need to see really well, and cannot afford to have distortions in their vision, loss of contrast sensitivity, loss of depth of field etc., all common side effects, and to hide the high risks of all these is an outrage. People should not have to struggle to see over 3 different distances with useless varifocals because surgery has ruined their sight, and Optimax must know by now that anyone with artistic and creative careers or hobbies is NOT suitable for surgery.
When will they ever start caring and behave responsibly?

Perhaps Russell Ambrose is tired of fighting me, because this is the second claim he's recently settled without a court hearing (particulars posted 3 August).

Or he's finally listening to his legal advisers... but either way, he's no fun anymore :kiss:

If the second largest eye surgery provider within this industry refuses to honour a legal contract he agreed to then what hope is there for anyone left with problems after surgery who does not have a legal agreement?

Perhaps Russell Ambrose is tiring of losing to me, because he’s agreed to pay my third claim and avoided the hearing listed @ Central London County Court on 7 October (see previous post to read prequel).

Or perhaps he wants to sell Optimax and this is part of a cunning plan, because - as the albatross around Russell's neck - I'd be included in the fixtures and fittings!

To those of you who’d planned to come along to the hearing in October, don’t be too disappointed...

Not only do I have a fourth claim in process, but I’ll be posting details soon about a really exciting trial scheduled to start early next year!
