Steve & Karen, UK
I am absolutely delighted with my eye's and so is Steve. For the first time in my life I have eyelids that I can put eye shadow on and it can be seen. Within in two weeks we are nearly back to normal. Just a little bit of numbness on the top lids and in the corners. I'm getting lots of comments from people saying you look different, what have you done! my secret.
So I would say to anyone thinking of having eye surgery abroad.. go for it! The whole process was swift and painless.
Martina our contact from Medical Travel was first class. Held my hand all the way from my first inquiry to her. We were picked up from the airport and taken to the clinic for our first consultation with Dr Vasek. Dr Vasek spoke good English and explained everything in great detail to us. The main worry was would it hurt and he promised that we wouldn't feel a thing, and we didn't. We were then taken to our hotel to book in. At 1 pm we were collected to be taken back to the clinic for our surgery. Surgery took one hour under local anesthetic and Dr Vasek explained everything that he was doing and reassuring us all the time.
When we left the clinic we were given medication and ice pack glasses to aid our recovery.
I didn't take going abroad to have my eye surgery lightly. I did lots of research before deciding which clinic and doctor to use. Martina was able to give me all my choices very easily and quickly.
One other reason why I started to look abroad to have my eyes done was because my sister had hers upper and lower eyelids done in the UK and paid three times as much, however I wasn't impressed with the results and neither was she.
