In January 2012 I launched My Beautiful Eyes Campaign, calling for the UK government to regulate the refractive eye surgery industry.

This resulted in a surprisingly high number of people asking for my advice, and so I set up MBE patient advocacy service...

Hi Sasha,

I just want to say a huge thanks for all your hard work helping to finally get my refund from Optimax. After hitting a wall trying to get some compensation for my deteriorating vision 6 years post op you've been amazing in fighting my corner!

Not sure I would have had the patience to keep challenging their arguments / obstructions. Good luck with all your efforts and I hope the government soon start to realise the severity of this issue.

Thanks again!!

"There is no additional charge for having your second eye treated on a different day."

But it would cost Optimax extra time/money which is why they don't offer to do one eye at a time unless asked!!!

Optical Express have complained to Nominet (again) claiming that Sasha Rodoy's OERML site is an "advertorial" for Optimax, its registration paid for by Russell Ambrose. Did they not notice the Optimax threads on the OERML Forum?!

Optical Express are presumably taking advantage of the legally enforceable 'gagging order' included in Sasha Rodoy's personal injury settlement with Optimax, a copy of which OE claimed to have in anonymous posts on a now closed forum.

Sasha may be unable to speak out, but I can tell you categorically that OE's claims about OERML are not only nonsensical, they are downright LIES!

I have in my possession copies of at least four recorded meetings between Ms Rodoy and Russell Ambrose where he is clearly heard in each one trying to broker a deal for Sasha to accept £200,000 from David Moulsdale to take down the OERML site. He tells her it is damaging Optimax as much as it is Optical Express.

Sasha may not be able to speak out publicly against Optimax, but I can! So let me assure anyone who might think otherwise, I know Sasha Rodoy personally and can tell you she has as much contempt for Russell Ambrose as she does for David Moulsdale - if not more!

"Advertorial for Optimax" - I think not! I will submit my own evidence to Nominet to discredit OE's claim.

Unlucky for Sasha when surgeon Dr Wilbert Hoe damaged her eyes in February 2011, but certainly lucky for the rest of us, because otherwise this industry would continue unregulated with free rein to damage the lives of 1,000s more trusting individuals!

More about OE's Nominet complaint here:

NB: Dr Wilbert Kok-Chwan Hoe retired in 2012 & is about to be sued by another Optimax patient he operated on only one month after Sasha! How many more we wonder?

OPTIMAX LASER EYE SURGERY - Russell Keith Ambrose 22 Sep 2013 13:34 #217

My whole life was damaged after I decided to have laser eye surgery at Optimax.

Russell Ambrose, owner of Optimax and Ultralase, claims that laser eye surgery DID NOT cause MGD, or STARBURSTS and GHOSTING - none of which I suffered before laser eye surgery!

I am also left with yellow blobs forming around my eyes which I have to regularly prick with a pin.

Hear how my right eye was left with laser decentration caused by negligent Optimax surgeon Dr Seethappa Madhusudhan MD MS FRCS (Ed) MS Ophth

Two previous Optimax Medical Directors, Dr Malcolm Samuel and Professor Jan Venter (now @ Optical Express) were guilty of serious negligence. Both of their damaged patients were paid off.

Mark received approx 45k after surgeon Dr Malcolm Samuel programmed the wrong laser setting, and Myra a mere 200k after being left blinded for a year thanks to Professor Jan Venter, not knowing if she would ever regain her sight!

Russell didn’t care!

Optimax's recently appointed Medical Director, Dr Amir Hamid, is also in the midst of a negligence claim! If Optimax's MDs can't get it right, who can you trust?

My world has been turned upside down & my career destroyed thanks to Russell Ambrose and Optimax - also responsible for damaging My Beautiful Eyes campaigner Sasha Rodoy's eyes!

Dr Wilbert Hoe, the surgeon responsible, retired last year and escaped being sued - after Russell paid Sasha off, with a gagging order - or thought he did! But now another patient with similar problems caused by Dr Hoe is preparing legal proceedings!

Optimax v OE 06 Jul 2013 13:33 #218

My issue is with OE but it's good to see Optimax fairly getting the same beating as OE!

This industry MUST be stopped from ruining people's lives in the name of £££
