    Clear expectations set, good bedside manner, and excellent communication and responsiveness throughout. The operation itself went great, aftercare was great, and 3 months after I am very happy with the results. I now have better than 20/20 vision! I would highly recommend Dr. Alex Day and Moorfields Private.

    Mr Day was great. He was very kind, corteous and knowledgable and explained the various options I had for laser eye surgery to me. He took the time to explain the procedure and answered all the questions I had. On the day of the surgery he couldn't have done a better job, he kept talking to me to explain what he was doing which really reassured me and calmed me. That was really appreciated as I was very nervous the day of the surgery. The surgery went perfectly and I now have perfect vision. I would highly recommend Mr Day for your laser eye surgery.

    Mr Day was very professional and informative. He set target times in terms of recovery which were very realistic, which made it easier to plan time off from work / getting around etc. He was also extremely quick to respond to any queries I had during the initial recovery period
