I decided to check with the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital to see if I could arrange a consultation, even on a fee basis, that would give me enough information to feel comfortable in making a decision. The Consultant Opthalmic Surgeon at the MREH is a Mr Arun Brahma, after a bit detective work on the net I managed to speak with his secretary who informed me that I could arrange a consultation direct with Mr Brahma, at a fee of around £180.. So I made an appointment for a consultation, and I must admit I did like the idea that it was the LaserVision in the MREH.
After the required eye tests, I met with Mr Brahma who then started asking me quite a lot of questions regarding my lifestyle – as opposed to answering my questions that were based on research on the internet.
Mr Brahma then informed me that he recommended Lasik laser surgery on my right eye, and no treatment to my left eye as the test results showed that near vision was good. And surgery on the left eye could always be performed at a later date if required. The fees were £1900 for surgery and say £180 for the consultation… Surgery went well, probably about 10-15 mins in theatre and only mild discomfort. A few hours later after the local anaesthetic drops had worn off it ached for the rest of the day. But next day I was right as rain and drove down for the check up at the MREH. The whole procedure from start to finish had a ‘feel good” about it… and 3 months down the line I have just been discharged.
Fantastic service and great value for money!”
