I agree with Supporter!
I have answered a comment there because the poster was talking complete b***ocks. The article is about this website but some of the posters haven't bothered to look at it & are making comments without information. One person implied that problems are caused by not putting in your eye drops after surgery :angry:

I have just read the comments posted in response to The Register article published two days ago.

The ignorance of some posting there explains why this industry continues to get away with what they are. One post suggests that the comments on this site are not true, whilst another points out more sensibly that Sasha Rodoy would have been sued if they weren't.

A few suggest that this site is simply Ms Rodoy's attempt to blackmail OE into paying her off, claiming that's why she set up Optimaxruinedmylife.co.uk

I can only assume those people haven't bothered with any research otherwise they would be aware that Ms Rodoy was paid compensation for the damage done to her own eyes by Optimax, which included a 'gagging order' - as most out of court settlements expect, which meant she had to take down the Optimax Ruined My Life.co.uk site.

These details are available on the www.optimaxruinedmylife.com/ site as they are on numerous You Tube videos.

Doesn't sound like someone who wants money to me!

Perhaps we are too used to people who will sell their souls for a fat bank account and don't understand that there are still some for whom money is not as important as fighting for a cause they believe in.

The Optical Express consent form which covers the surgeon/patient consultation states "all questions answered"! So at the end of the day it's your word against theirs.
But how do you know what to ask when handed this long and complicated consent form and asked to sign it in the middle of the consultation?
So many things can and do happen that are not mentioned - are we meant to know in advance to ask about these things? Or are they considered to be in a rare category so not worth mentioning. This is where a central body should be collating evidence on post op complications as Optical Express will only help patients with problems if they sign a non disclosure clause (gagging order) so no-one gets to hear about the complications which occur apparently more often than this industry would like us us to know!

Last night I was enraged to see an advert for Optical Express on ITV (London Channel 3). But then I thought, what's the first thing anyone interested would do?
Google 'Optical Express' of course!! :lol:

www.itv.com/news/update/2013-12-29/cosme...ave-nowhere-to-hide/ :
"The Government will take "robust action" to clamp down on "cosmetic cowboys" under new plans to register breast implants for operations.

Health Minister Dr Dan Poulter said:
'For too long, the cosmetics industry has been completely unregulated and there are too many tales of women who have been exploited and of lives ruined by rogue cosmetic firms and practitioners.
We will also be outlining rigorous plans to clamp down on irresponsible cosmetics advertising. For the cosmetic cowboys, be it on the high street, or in the operating theatre, there will be nowhere to hide

It was taken out in one of their shops in Scotland waiting for bank statement to come through so we can send proof of them taking money.

Your bank should be able to track exact location using transaction code quoted on your Visa bill.

David Orton died yesterday after being diagnosed with inoperable cancer just a few months ago, on the 30th August.

His wife Sue told me the sad news this morning.

David was a strong MBE Campaign supporter and damaged OE patient, and a few weeks ago he gave me his permission to use his story as I see fit.

I will therefore pay tribute to his memory accordingly in the next few days.

For now, I'd like to mention that David referred to Stephen as "Piggy Hannan", as it would make him smile to see it posted here for all to read!

It appears OE have no record of the £10 they've taken out of our account! Despite the fact they enclosed the Visa slip and it was taken out in Scotland - we've never been to Scotland :unsure:
