Presumably OE store staff have been preoccupied chasing fat sales commissions by converting specs buyers to more profitable eye surgery customers, because the September edition of Which? magazine has Optical Express rated as the WORST opticians - even Tesco beat them!!

'Specsavers came near the middle of the table with a customer score of 72%. But Tesco Opticians, Scrivens and Optical Express got our worst customer scores, with the lowest at 59%.'

And I predict it can only get worse for OE :kiss:

Thanks Sasha for sharing this video.
Here in France too a lot of patients develop complications after their eye lasik surgery.
We are trying to warn of the urgent need to regulate refractive eye surgery.
Legally this procedure is described as ‘comfort' surgery, so there is no concern for benefits/risks.
The industry claims 100% success but what about the high % of patients with bad outcomes?
They are ignored by all surgeons and industry bosses of laser eye surgery in total contempt of the Hippocratic Oath not to injure anybody.

Oh dear, Steve Schallhorn disseminating disingenuous propaganda across India :kiss:

Steve's confused me here though, because, as OE's Global Medical Director, why does he not pass this message down to the optoms etc… who sell surgery to people in their late teens?



As for this...



Simply laughable, as many of OE’s damaged patients can no longer drive at night, let alone travel in space, and I know of three airline pilots who had to quit flying after surgery - all currently in litigation!

Do add your comment - I have!

Listen to BBC Radio 4, 'You & Yours' @ 12.15pm today…



The Optical Express Lifetime Aftercare (lack of) issue will be discussed on the programme @ approx 12.40pm.

Scheduled for last Wednesday this was postponed due to legal reasons.

However it’s been worth waiting for as more details emerged in the interim.

A big thank you to the many people who contributed and helped BBC researchers with information - and to those who agreed to speak on air.

Listen here @ 33:24 mins

NB: For overseas followers unable to access this link I will publish on YouTube asap :kiss:
