I recently had my ICL surgery done. It feels like a miracle being able to see again without glasses. The journey from the initial phone call up until the actual surgery was first class. I highly recommend this place. Thanks very much to everyone in the Optimal Vision clinic!
Really appreciated the friendliness of all staff, and their willingness to go above and beyond to make me feel at ease about the procedure.
Excellent service from start to finish. It worth every penny.
I had LASIK Eye Surgery in Optimal Vision Clinic and I always scared to do this, but it wasn't like that I imagined. I only feel uncomfortable for a day and it all went very well and If I knew it is so easy, I would do it 5 years ago.
I have had to change the power of my glasses frequently! Optimal Vision offered me the best solution with LASIK eye surgery. Now I can read tiny write ups without glasses. Best clinic with the best treatment.
My experience at Optimal Vision has been amazing and had a cataract surgery and now I feel more confident. Staff are very professional; from the front desk all the way to the surgeons. The clinic itself is very modern and well located. It is close to a tube station, coffee shops and restaurants.
My mother had to replace her lens and as she has a heart disease we couldn't just trust to any clinic and do it, after searching and asking many people, we were recommended to this clinic, we went there and the doctor assured us about my mother condition and he was very confident to do this surgery and we trusted him. My mother has done the surgery without any problems and all was good. We can not thank Dr Mani enough.
