“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

    I can only say good things about my experience with Mr Alex Day. I had a laser eye surgery moving from -7.50 to 20/20 vision and it has absolutely changed my life! The decision making process for such a big move related to your eyes may be daunting and scary but I felt well supported by Mr Day and his PA Janet every step of the way. All the risks were clearly explained to me and I was allowed plenty of time to ask questions and make my decision. The actual surgery was extra fast and MR Day provided clear explanations of every step prior, during and post operation and was also available on the phone any time post op. I had no doubt everything will go well and it did! Thanks you for changing my life for the better!

    Super easy experience. Within a few weeks of the surgery I was able to see really well and a few months later I have perfect vision. I felt well supported by Alex through the process and would recommend it to others.

    Alex Day was very thorough and came highly recommended from a friend. I went to other clinics on Harley Street as part of due diligence but chose Alex because of the following; He didn't rush the process BUT most importantly, with the type of issues I had with my eyes, he proposed the more safe option for laser surgery which made we feel at ease. I also had an infection a week before surgery was due and he recommended to postpone rather than take any unnecessary risks. Every step of the way, Alex was making me feel very comfortable and safe which is important especially when it comes to your eyes. The day of surgery was very simple and easy. I was in and out within an hour with all checks and tests performed. The aftercare was also superb, especially when i sent him a text message early sunday morning with some concerns. He rang back straight away and answered all of my questions and put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend Alex Day!

    Everything about the laser eye procedure was thoroughly explained by Mr Day and there was a considerable amount of attention given to my eye health after the operation. Extremely happy with the results and my experience at Moorfields.

    Mr Day and all his team were very professional, took time to explain what was going to be done and gave me great confidence to go ahead with the cataract operations. Mr Day also identified the cyst in my right eye, which had been missed before, and explained what had to be done to remove it. The team was very thorough and I felt in safe hands at all times. Everyone I came into contact with at Moorfields was kind and patient, and the outcome -- much improved eyesight -- is absolutely wonderful.

    This was the second time I had PTK done in ten years. The first time was with one of the well known corneal specialists since retired and I was slightly nervous using someone new. However, the o stall experience was extremely professional: from the initial consultation, the advice provided, the operation itself as well as the aftercare. Better than the previous one.
