“I live a very active and adventurous lifestyle, so I always dreaded glasses and contacts and the hassle that comes with them. When I was cycling in the wind and rain at up to 30MPH, I was concerned that my contact lenses were going to come out at any moment. When you are in a race, or cycling in a group, there can be a lot of spray and different things can come right at you. So, the safety and the convenience initially prompted me to explore laser eye treatments.
“I met with Cathedral Eye Clinic and found all of the staff really friendly and approachable. Everyone is different, and I wasn’t a suitable candidate for laser treatment, instead receiving PHAKIC IOL implants. It has changed my life and how I do things, day in, day out.
It’s amazing to have 20/20 vision, so I have the gift of sight that I didn’t have previously. It’s amazing!
“Now when cycling, that thought isn’t at the back of my head. I am more confident, willing to take new challenges, and my eyes aren’t letting me down whatsoever!
Now, at the age of 29, I am challenging myself to run, swim and study.”
