Having to wear glasses or contact lenses all day everyday isn’t ideal for everybody. Sue Barley had enough of her constant daily struggle and decided to do something about it.
“I’ve worn glasses and contact lenses for most of my life – I’ve spent so much money on my eyesight.” said Sue. “I got to the point where I was having to wear my glasses or contact lenses all of the time. I had to carry them everywhere with me and had to keep swapping, depending on what I was doing.”
Sue decided to consult with Mr Milind Pande who heads the Vision Surgery & Research Centre. “Mr Pande has a great track record and reputation. I knew that my eyesight was really bad, so I wanted to feel confident in the decision I was making,” said Sue. “I felt at ease with Mr Pande and was able to ask as many questions as I wanted – he was very helpful.” After three consultations, Sue was booked in for Lens Replacement Surgery.
“I was having to use one contact lens for close-up and one for distance, so I was having to carry around different glasses or lenses,” said Sue. “TheLens Replacement Surgery seemed like the ideal choice for me.” Throughout the consultation process, Sue was taken through all the aspects of the surgery and discussed the best possible treatment for her. “Mr Pande was easy to talk to and gave me the advice to go ahead with it, without making me feel under pressure,” Sue said.
Sue had surgery at the Spire Hospital in Anlaby just after Christmas 2011, and has been delighted with the results .“The whole procedure was quick and there was no pain,” Sue says. “The recovery was great – I could see straight away. It did take a while to get used to my new eyesight, but Mr Pande had explained this to me, so it didn’t come as a shock.”
