HazelJ, I would be really pleased too speak to you if that would help? it sometimes just takes someone that has gone through what you are going through to really understand and empathise. One of the selling points for refractive procedures is increased confidence but if you have problems it can drain every ounce that you had left. I too reached a VERY low ebb. Please get in touch via this website? We could talk horses too xx

Having had RLE done over a year ago and now suffering from Floaters and Dry Eyes feeling very low today I went back to college [big step at 56] as felt more confident with my new eyes I now suffer every'. lesson with the lights and although they are very good turning them off if I ask it isn't always fair on other students. What worries me more is how much worse they are going to get and will I still be able to ride my horse and see my grandchild grow up ! I'm in constant pain why are these people still getting away with this. :woohoo:

Hi K.
You seem to be still contemplating having refractive eye surgery somewhere.
I would still caution you to consider, "Can I cope with the worst case scenario that may occur as a result". The surgery is essentially a 'get it right first time' procedure, because if it isn't right there are many problems that can occur which are difficult, if not impossible, to fix. I also ask you to consider the potential impact there could be on your physical and mental health, as well as your personal and professional life. Please don't underestimate the devastating consequences that you may have to deal with.

I'd like to say thank you for this website - reading it has put me off ever going with Optical Express or any high street chain and that is thanks to you. I'm definitely going to go through with it and need to find the most trustworthy, reputable place around.
Thanks again for your site.

Cannot believe Optical Express are using David Teenan as their Facebook poster boy - sick & an insult to all he's damaged :(
