    I had a very good experience with Doctor Wisam Muen. Initially the so called 'SMILE' surgery technique didn't yield the results we were expecting. Doctor Muen was very clear on explaining why the results weren't as expected and in preparing me for a followon surgery if I wanted to proceed with a touchup procedure using LASIK. Despite my concerns with the second procedure he put me at ease and helped my understand the potential benefits. I would go back to both OPTEGRA clinic and request Doctor Muen again without a thought. Even though it took some time to achieve what results I wanted, both him and his staff were very supportive through the journey and in the end we were successful! Thank you to you and your staff Doctor Muen....!!

    Mr Muen was really nice and kind. He was brilliant during the surgery and it well really smooth. He provided me with all the information that I need to know in a really simple way so that I could understand it well. He checked my eyes thoroughly during the follow up appointments and I would highly recommend Mr Muen to other patients.

    Mr Muen presented at the open evening I attended. He gave an excellent and informative presentation and threw in some good jokes too. Appointments with him were quick and concise, but not rushed. He would take the time to explain anything in more detail if and when I asked.
