That is good to hear check out the following web link for OPTIMAX patients..

optimaxruinedmylife.com/

This web page shows much info there. :)

As far as drops go you need to find one that suits you. Do you use gel at night?

Now optitmax as they have been taken over , went back to ultra lase on sevrial occasions to be told it takes time to heal etc usual talk now been back to optimax twice last visit yestearday who say this is the side effects which we're stated in ur consent form and that my visions so good that its causing me to nitice these effects so I'm better to ignore them and focous on my good vision which is reading an eye chart!

I am sorry to hear, what eye drops do you use? What have you done in relation to getting your eyes rechecked or looked at?
Where did you get treatment and by whom?

Has anyone been told prior to surgery that DVLA must be informed if they've had eye surgery that has induced changes to their visual quality. If patients aren't told this prior to surgery, then this is another case of a lack of informed consent.

Hi Poppy

It is unbelievable isn't it? What a total shambles this is people's Eye's they cannot should not be making mistakes!!!!!! All the Surgeons who actually perform the Surgery should be Hauled into court and made to stand trial they should also be struck off the money grabbing skumbags!!!

Why should we put up with crap vision and a life of pain and misery while they live the high life thanks to us. GUINEA PIGS THAT'S WHAT WE WERE!!!

I believe these statistics are probably universal across all of OE's surgeons. Mr surgeon Waseem Aziz readily admitted that he had to perform further surgery on 'about 5%' of his patients. This obviously excludes those like me who would not let him near my eyes for a second attempt.
However, when in my local branch I asked the Manager whether she got fed up with all of the complaints over failed surgery? (I had run into 4 people on quite random visits to the branch). She replied that sometimes she did. When asked how many operations failed she told me "about one in ten".
There are thousands of people out there with the same problems as us no doubt.

I've no idea how many procedures Fariq Qazi f**ks up, but he did let it slip that he does approx 6~8 retreats (enhancements LOL!) out of 30 per month.

Of course this is the patients fault for not healing properly.

I was in air con building yesterday afternoon when my eyes started feeling dry.

In the evening I watched less than 2 hrs television before I had to close my eyes because they were so uncomfortable. They were itchy and dry then & today the best way I can describe them today is like having dirty contact lenses that I just want to rip out!

I know we all say it, but why oh why did I let this happen to me :dry:

I was treated by this person, I wasn't particularly impressed. Assured me he could fix my sight in my damaged eye, without even knowing what was wrong with it. It surely would be a first, if OE laser surgeons started resolving retinal damage. In all honesty it was simply a feeble attempt to get me to pay for treatment on two eyes.

Then he lied regarding me being able to read after the procedure, then to cap it all off, didn't particular do a good job, as my treatment wasn't centred according to the charts produced at Centre for Sight.

His medical career is searchable in google, he was in Canada prior to the UK, shame he didn't remain.
