Alex has been very supportive, I’m now 6 months post PRK. I can message Alex directly if I have any problems or issues. He has been very helpful and he was certainly the best man for the surgery.

All l can say is that Mr Ionidies is a miracle man who will make you see. From the beginning of my eyesight journey it has been a 2020 experience. This man is professional, thorough, kind and caring. If you are fearful of the procedure he will answer any questions you have to elevate your concerns. In my first appointment he spotted things about my eyes that no optician appointment had ever discovered. He has all of the top of the range equipment to ensure a perfect result. His team from his PA to clinical assistants are also so attentive to your needs. On the day of the surgery it was all completed within a blink of an eye excuse the pun... and the aftercare again was exceptional. If you are afraid to get eye laser surgery don't be. I researched so much to ensure that l had the best person to help me and l was right. He is amazing!!! It was worth every penny! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful service l received.
