If you had multifocal lens replacement surgery at Optical Express between January and November 2014 it is likely that you were implanted with MPlus X lens.

As well as numerous legal claims now being processed, the press and media want to interview patients who are suffering problems with these lenses.

"Sasha Rodoy, 61, who has been campaigning for better regulation of the corrective surgery industry, said: ‘The only reason anybody should have these operations is if it is the only option that will stop them going blind. They are just not safe.’

A spokesman for Oculentis confirmed the firm had received four ‘incident reports’ from the MHRA.

He added: ‘We are currently in the process of analysing the facts, as all of these reports are very unspecific and unsubstantiated, only basically mentioning poor distance vision as the main complaint.

Blindness fears over eye surgery at High St clinic: Patients 'left with worse sight after lens implants'

• Safety concerns raised over replacement lens used by Optical Express
• Manufacturers Oculentis and Optical Express both deny fault with lens
• Used in procedure called refractive lens exchange to fix minor problems

NB: The word "Blindness" has since been removed from the Mail Online story after Optical Express issued legal proceedings against the Daily Mail.

Since launching my campaign in 2012 I have been contacted by thousands of people with problems caused by laser eye surgery across the industry, but in 2014 the numbers with problems with replacement lenses rocketed,” said Sasha Rodoy, who runs the website Optical Express Ruined My Life, and who is campaigning for tighter regulation.

“For three years I have ensured that health secretary Jeremy Hunt was aware of the serious problems within this industry, but only after increased pressure did the health minister Dan Poulter recently agree to meet with me on 20 January. I hope now they listen
.”

'According to Optical Express, what resulted from operations on Jackson’s eyes in August and September – while acknowledging “an issue with high-order aberrations” such as haloes and poor night vision – was “a very good ocular outcome.”'*

* This was of course according to Stephen Hannan :kiss:

"After facing a flurry of cattiness when she appeared a little bedraggled, with heavily smudged black make-up, at the GQ awards in September, the TV star breezily tweeted: “Oh my. They’re not wrong. Eyeliner going in the bin.”

Yet on Sunday at the Baftas, despite her £525 Alice Temperley gown, fans couldn’t help but notice that her eyes were looking panda-ish again.

Now the 42-year-old Strictly Come Dancing presenter has revealed just how this kind of things seems to happen.

"“I don’t have any mirrors in my house, because I don’t believe in what we look like. And I’ve got really bad eyesight,” she says."

Claudia had eye surgery in 2010 - only 4 years ago :kiss:
