Testimonial – Alec – Laser cataract surgery

Electing to have complex surgery in a foreign country, when you don’t speak a word of the language, is a daunting proposition. So it was with some trepidation that I booked through Praga Medica to have laser cataract surgery on both of my eyes. I was re-assured by the many positive testimonials submitted by “pioneers” who had travelled this route before me, and the costs quoted to me by Praga Medica were about one third of those in the UK for comparable surgery. I need not have worried. The whole process, from airport transfers to hotel bookings, to clinic appointments was meticulously organised, and my personal chaperone, Monika, accompanied me on all important appointments to act as translator/advisor. The staff and facilities at the clinic are second to none. The members of staff all appear to be Czech, they all speak the same language, and they work together as a permanent team, using the very latest technology. In short, a very well-oiled machine. The actual surgery, performed by Dr. Tovarek (with more than 20,000 cataract operations to his name !), was completely painless, and included re-profiling of my corneas to cure astigmatism (all part of the service). When my eye-patch was removed the day after my first surgery, I was amazed at the result. I had not realised that my cataracts were so bad !! I returned three weeks later to have surgery on my other eye, and was equally impressed second time around. I opted to have monofocal replacement lenses, optimised for distance use, and can now focus sharply on anything from about 0.5 metre to infinity. Driving is once again a pleasure rather than an ordeal. Would I recommend Praga Medica, even to a friend or relative? Without hesitation.
