Testimonial – Glasgow Bros – Vision correction – Laser-assisted trifocal toric lens exchange
My brother and i recently had eye lens replacement surgery in Prague, by Praga medica. the whole experience was so easy and straightforward, and well planned out. We stayed in Prague for 6 nights, arriving on Monday, on Tuesday we had an eye examination, Wednesday we had first eye lens replacement surgery, Thursday we removed eye patch and had eye examination to check everything was ok, Friday we had same surgery on other eye, Sat again, we removed eye patch and had examination again, then Sunday we flew home armed with 3x small bottles of eye drops to use over the next few weeks. the staff were great,Monica and Katerina. Jana (treatment abroad consultant) and Anna (treatment abroad coordinator), all medical staff and of course the surgeon Lubomir Tovarek, who spoke good English and talked me through the entire procedure as it was happening and really puts you at ease. the surgery itself, honestly is not painful at all, we opted for the laser to be used, which you have to pay more for, but is safer and more accurate. You are given a series of eye drops prior to surgery to numb the eye and dilate the pupil, all you really feel is the slight pressure of the laser eye cap holding your eye still we stayed at the Ibis Praha hotel Wenceslas, which was literally a 3 min walk to the eye clinic to have the eye tests done, the clinic where we had the actual surgery is literally next door, to the right of the hotel, so the location was perfect if you don’t mind staying in a relatively basic hotel, although the Novotel hotel is also next to ibis there. so ideal for us, we had return flights from Edinburgh, 6 nights in a hotel and eye lens replacement surgery with the better Trifocal lenses (which optical express don’t offer) and for less cost than having the procedure at home in the UK…. And of course, a holiday in the lovely/historic city of Prague. Perfect.
