Imagine waking up and being able to see the alarm clock in the morning, playing with the children without worrying about sticky fingers on your glasses or bent and broken frames. Take part in sports and go swimming without about the worry of losing a contact lens or your glasses getting splashed or fogged up. Many people have enhanced their lives and now enjoy freedom from the hassle and inconvenience of wearing contact lenses or glasses after corrective eye treatment.

"I drove (and was driven back) about 100 miles to consult and later be operated by Prof. Claoue because I know he is an excellent and caring surgeon. I will drive even further to see him again if necessary!"
Retired GP, March 2022

"Just a line to say thank you for the procedure, most of the time I do not need glasses except for reading, considering that's the first time for 70 years. Thanks"
Patient of Professor Claoué, April 2021

"Two words sum up the work done by Mr. Bowes on my eyes. Life changing. From my first meeting to my last examination Mr. Bowes was throughout, reassuring professional and caring. His guidance and expertise left me in no doubt as to what to expect post treatment which involved left and right eye cataract surgery. I am now in the wonderful position of playing golf without having to rely on my partner telling me where the ball landed! As I said, Life changing, thank you Mr. Bowes."

Available for consultation over weekend on phone - very pleasant surprise, came over as very caring for his patients.

"This is just a note to thank Professor Claoue for my cataract operation which was performed a couple of weeks ago. From start to finish my treatment was extremely professional, with everything explained so that I could understand it. I was feeling very nervous but after meeting Professor Claoue I felt comfortable and very confident that I had chosen the best surgeon for my operation. I feel that I have achieved the best result that I could ever had hoped for and would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone thinking of having this operation."

"Thank you very much for your very skilful work, my sight is greatly improved everything is much, much clearer and I do not have the debilitating glare or haze, also my sight has improved slightly long distance, but requires reading glasses as expected, so all in all very successful."
R.C, London

"Fantastic - I can see everything – I am amazed."

"In so many ways it is just easier, instead of having to put my eyes in first I can just pop out whenever I want, doing things impulsively without planning to take glasses, contacts lenses, pots and solutions and so. Now I just get up and go."

"Can you imagine getting up each morning and seeing the leaves in the trees and the birds, all the silly things that other people take for granted. I now have 20/20 vision so couldn't ask for anything more. If you are thinking of having it done I would recommend it, it is really brilliant."

"Its brilliant, I wish I'd had it done years ago"

"It is just so much easier now"

"My contact lenses were really irritating my eyes and I really disliked wearing glasses, they were so inconvenient for sports or when it was raining, I am so pleased to have found an alternative. With laser eye treatment I don't need either. It is just so much easier now".

"I got married 3 weeks ago and I'm so please I didn't have to wear lenses of any kind for the day! EC 2013".

"Really good – a million times better – I can see the ball for golf – a life changing experience PRELEX patient 2013".
