Employee Benefit | Free Laser Eye Surgery | Patient Advisor Adam

Patient Advisor Adam, received free vision correction surgery which is one of a number of employee benefits on offer at Optical Express. We offer a wide range of employee benefits that are designed to thank our people for the essential role they play within our business and free refractive surgery is one of them.

Meet Adam, a patient advisor in our Aberdeen clinic who took advantage of this amazing opportunity. Adam has been wearing glasses from the age of 16 or 17. He enjoys playing football and is a keen darts player, but both sports require good vision. Adam describes one night playing darts after losing his glasses that he struggled to “even see what someone had scored or what they had left”.

On the day of his surgery, Adam commented that he “was excited but nervous at the same time”. The clinician team ran through the process with him which covered pre surgery information right through to post surgery details, Adam mentioned “there was literally no stone left unturned”.

Adam said that he “was really surprised as to how quick it was to actually do it.” The laser eye surgery technology works in a matter of seconds. Over £500 million has been invested in our clinics and advanced technology to ensure we are providing our patients with the best possible care but also enabling our teams to work with the best technology and systems in the industry.

That same night, Adam could notice the improvement in his vision when he was watching TV and no longer needed to squint, describing his vision as “crystal clear”. The next day after his post-surgery appointment, Adam’s vision was even better. Commenting that on his walk to breakfast he was saying, “I can read that, I can read that.”

The freedom Adam feels now that he has 20|20 vision has improved his quality of life, not just personally but professionally too.
