I keep seeing adverts from the two big laser eye surgery companies, Optical Express and Optimax, and thinking would I want to have a procedure like that. Personally I have always been sceptical, although a friend of mine has paid for laser eye correction and is very happy with the results. At the back of my mind has been “what if something went wrong“? Now I assume that this is statistically unlikely but a couple of websites I recently came across reinforced my worries. The similarly named Optical Express Ruined My Life and Optimax Ruined My Life both of which campaign for regulation of laser eye surgery clinics and feature the stories of people who claim their eye surgery went wrong..
