LaserVision’s Mike Tappin’s First-hand Experience of Laser Eye Surgery

27th August 2015

Mr Mike Tappinexpertise

In today’s blog post we’re catching up with LaserVision’s very own Consultant Eye Surgeon, Mike Tappin to discover how his life has changed since undergoing laser eye surgery. Mike suffered with severe astigmatism which affected his lifestyle greatly. To correct this, Mike had treatment at our Nuffield Health Guildford based hospital clinic and the procedure was performed by his colleague, Rakesh Jayaswal.

How did wearing glasses/contacts affect your day-to life, what did it inhibit the most?
My astigmatism was making my vision blurry which was most significant when driving and reading.

Why did you choose LaserVision, in particular Rakesh for vision correction treatment?
I chose Laservision because I had complete confidence in my colleague Rakesh Jayaswal and the Allegretto Excimer laser used at Laservision Guildford, as it has fantastic results in treating astigmatism.

What treatment did you receive?
I had LASEK.

How has the average day changed/improved since your treatment?
Driving has improved greatly, especially at night. It’s also fantastic not having to search for my glasses every time I want to read something!

What do you enjoy most about lens free living?
I most enjoy not needing reading glasses for everything.
