Patient Stories

Thanks to laser eye surgery, Gemma’s got a new hobby: seeing the world through her camera, one snap at a time.

Gemma Baker

Age: 33, Treatment: Laser Eye Surgery

When my vision started to deteriorate, I tried contact lenses but they didn’t work out for me. They dried my eyes out and were uncomfortable. I looked at glasses as well but I couldn’t find a pair to suit me, so I started to research laser eye surgery.

I chose Optical Express because I’d seen fantastic reviews of them online and once I booked the consultation, I found the whole process with them to be an easy ride. The procedure itself was painless and after a lie down for a few hours back at home, my eyesight was 20/20.

I don’t think I realised just how beautiful the world was.

A new career

I could now see the world a whole lot clearer and this led me to take up photography. From starting off taking pictures of my family, friends, the dog and the cat, I’m out of the house taking pictures of everything: mountains, the sea, lakes. It’s given me a passion that I love. After treatment, I initially felt overwhelmed with joy and I couldn’t stop smiling. Nearly five years on, I feel more confident, more outgoing and before having laser eye surgery, I don’t think I realised just how beautiful the world was.
