    hey liam, my wife went to optimax, with the view it would cost £800, after they got her hopes up saying she would only need the cheaper surgery, after the consultation it turned out the procedure she needed was nearer £2000, anyways she had it done, very good company untill they messed the op up,

    one eye fixed, one eye worse then before, obviously there are pros and cons, but after verious trips all over to country to see other consultants, we were told its unrepairable, the surgon was fired, and the wife was fogotten about

    on the upside, a friend had it done many years ago, and it was sucesful

    Very true there!

    I don't have to wear mine all the time, but I find it easier to just so I have got them. Find I cannot drive without them as I strain my eyes too much, struggle at work without them, also watching TV and playing xbox is a struggle.

    Latest ones cost a fortune as I went for pretty much the full works, transitions lenses the lot, frames alone were around the £220 mark! Considering I had made my last pair last 2-3 years I see £400 as a good investment for new glasses.

    I dont mind specs and am happy enough to wear them, so have always avoided surgery. My eyes are dry naturally, and I use the computer all day for work, so I think the surgery would result in problems for me. I would absolutely hate to end up in regular pain and couldnt forgive myself if it went wrong.

    Have you guys checked out glassesdirect.co.uk?

    The specs are way cheaper than the high street and its buy-one-get one-free. A decent pair will cost about £80'ish and you get another so they are effectively £40 a pair. Cheap as chips.

    These are similar to my specs now:

    And these are like another set I have:
