Laser Eye Surgery – A Patient’s Diary


I started waring glasses when I was 11 years old. Three years later I opted for contact lenses and they have since been part of my daily life.

At 15 I was offered the opportunity to get a laser eye treatment in Belgium. My parents showed me a video on how the operation was done but it horrified me so much that I chose to stick to my contact lenses and I forgot about the chance on a perfect eyesight.

Many years later my husband and I moved to South Africa.
