You would be surprised just how many people have had this issue too. I am one of them now two years down the line waiting to hear back from the 'customer support' team to discuss the issues I have with OE.

I will not be allowing OE to carry out surgery to my eyes again I do not believe that they are fully qualified at all to carry out the services they offer. I don't believe they train people correctly and I think the management is absolutely shoddy.

In the same breath I will not be letting my story drop as their feeble, "I am sorry" responses do not cut it and I will be doing all I can to help Sasha Rodroy with her campaign against this industry which is very happy to take our money and do nothing else!!

I had lasik at Optical Express 4 months ago and my vision is WORSE than ever!! They tell me I need more surgery to correct them & it'll be fine. But how can I trust them when they told me my eyes would be perfect after my opertaion which I paid thousands of £££ for & it's not??

While I wait I need glasses to drive and see TV.

They gave me two sets so far which are the wrong prescription and they haven't even said sorry, and I am waiting for the new ones to be sent

Has anyone else had this problem?

I think it's the continued use of eye drops as well because the inside of my nose is all crusty n sore.

Nightmare !!

It's a scientific fact that the two are related!

Has any one encountered a loss of their sense of smell or it being reduced ?? As this has happened to me I'm sure its to do with the surgery or trauma from it as I could smell fine before it as I miss the smell of freshly cut grass & smells of the old pepole in the local pub. They say its not linked and must be something else to see my own doctor :huh:

Has anyone had, or heard of second lasik flaps being cut in corneas that have already had lasik flaps cut into them from previous surgery ? This happened to me, and it didn't fix my vision problems from the first surgery.

Hard to believe this industry is unregulated & people continue to fall for the sales pitches & risk their eyesight just to give up wearing glasses :unsure:

PS my first post didn't show up. hopefully this one will.

Thanks to the high incidence of spam attacks against this site, posts from unregistered users must wait for approval from a moderator. We try to do this is as quickly as possible.
If you decide to go ahead I advise you record your pre op Q & As with the operating surgeon in case of any problems.

This is something I believe everyone undergoing eye surgery should do in the event of complications and the arguable validity of fully informed consent!

Meanwhile Bungle, please keep us updated.

finshed reading your story now Pat.

it sounds like an absolute nightmare. i was certainly not aware that it could cause retinal detachment.

i really do feel for you because me just having slightly worse eyesight and more halo in one eye has caused me a fair bit of discomfort and annoyance. so i can't imagine how you've coped with your problems, which are 100x worse. certainly puts mine into perspective.

i hope things look up for you in the future.
