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.

Absolutely outstanding clinician. As I said on my feedback to Optegra in general, Dr Muen is so knowledgeable on his field that he made the whole process seamless. He was able to articulate every element of the procedure, risks and management of expectations. This gave me great reassurance throughout my laser surgery, including initial consultation and follow up appointments. Furthermore, he achieved spectacular results on my vision, exceeding my initial expectations. 10/10 for Dr Muen.

Mr Muen was fantastic! Highly skilled and very patient. After consultation with Mr Muen, I had lens exchange on both eyes at the same time, which was the right advice for me. He was very thorough in his explanation and answered all my questions. I have seen him twice since the operation, where he has continued to explain, and reassure fully. All the staff at Optegra are brilliant. I was very well looked after from the moment I stepped through the door. The equipment is state of the art, and I was reassured that I received all the necessary assessments both before, and after, the operation. I researched several organisations but definitely made the right choice with Optegra and Mr Muen.

From the moment I entered the hospital for my first consultation, I was looked after fantastically. Everything was explained to me, I was given time to ask any questions and never felt rushed or overlooked. On the day of my procedure, I was understandably nervous. I had no reason to be, everyone was reassuring, calm and kind. The actual procedure was so fast - However I was reassured at every step, nothing happened without a clear, nonjargon explanation from Mr Muen. He made sure to let me know there would be a lot of voices asking questions but to focus on what he was saying. Despite doing nothing other than lying still while the team did all the work, I was constantly reassured I was doing a great job and being looked after. The aftercare like all the other care was brilliant.
