I am left with lifetime problems with my eyes after surgery at Optimax & was sickened to find this video on You tube. Not only shocked that someone in Russell Ambrose's position would publish videos of himself with his young child on the internet, but also disgusted that he flaunts this while people like me can't even get so much as my money back or eye drops from this man!

Jan Venter blinded a patient in Sth Africa.

Anyone being offered an IOL explant or RLE at Optical Express should read this - especially page 3:

Not named here, but Jan Venter was the Optimax Medical Director responsible for post op negligence which left Myra Pridham blind for one year. Optimax and Venter were both successfully sued by Myra in 2012:

If you look at their site, Optical Express have recently stopped calling Jan Venter 'Professor'!

Optimax Ruined My Life: Amanda's Story 18 Apr 2014 11:09 #204

In 2007, aged 35, Amanda had lasek eye surgery at the Newcastle Optimax clinic. Three months later she suffered her first attack of RCE (Recurrent Corneal Erosion).

For the past SEVEN years Amanda has suffered frequent attacks of RCE, an agonising and debilitating condition caused by trauma to the cornea.

"There may be more unusual trigger factors (all involving disruption of the epithelial basement membrane) such as following cataract surgery or refractive surgery."
www.patient.co.uk/doctor/recur ...

Amanda's life has been devastated with relentless pain and intermittent periods of blindness. She told her local MP that at times it's so unbearable she could put a gun to her head to end it all.

Optimax CEO, Russell Ambrose, has shown no interest or concern for Amanda's seven years nightmare. Instead of referring her to a specialist he has ignored her. At no time has he contacted her personally or even offered to provide her with eye drops.

Until recently Amanda felt isolated and helpless, thinking she was alone with this problem and scared to speak out in case Russell Ambrose sued her!

Since being interviewed for BBC Radio 5 Live Investigates in March 2014, Amanda has spoken to many others who have been left with problems after surgery at Optimax and is fighting back!

At least one of the three surgeons pictured below has removed his glasses for the photo. Well he wouldn't want anyone to think that he won't have laser surgery because it's way too risky.

So why not share the dangers with us? Is the money more precious than our eyes?

Since yesterday, Optimax has had several of my videos removed from YouTube.

I do not have a gagging order and I have a right to talk about my story.

The truth will NOT BE HIDDEN!

I have only recently found this website after reading the Sunday Daily Star on 5th April 2014 (only bought because the Sunday Mirror was sold out)

I had major problems after LASEK treatment in 2003 at Optimax Manchester. One of the surprises I discovered then was about people (guinea pigs) being treated for free on boats off the Russian coastline.

An article I read claimed that the reason the treatment was done offshore was so that the company doing the treatment couldn't be sued.

So it was known in the very early stages that there could be problems with this surgery.
