Optimax chosen as Laser Eye Surgery provider for BBC show

Press Release: April 12, 2010

Optimax, the Laser Eye Surgery specialist, recently worked with the BBC on an edition of the popular series Cash in the Attic, allowing their Nottingham clinic to be used for a filmed consultation with a contestant.

Margaret Payne, who featured recently in the programme with her husband, successfully auctioned an assortment of furniture on the show, and decided she would like to spend the proceeds on laser eye surgery.

Her main aim was to rid herself of glasses for driving, and soon after the auction contacted Optimax and arranged an appointment with head Optometrist Michael Spencer.

During the consultation, Margaret was told that her vision was better than she had thought based on her last check up with a local optician, and her vision was in fact up to driving standard. As a result, she was advised against going ahead with treatment.

The consultation was very thorough, and I was very happy with the advice I was given said Margaret. The whole experience was very reassuring and it was a lovely surprise to find out that I didnt need the glasses for driving

This illustrates our commitment to giving the best possible advice to laser eye surgery candidates, as patient satisfaction is the ultimate goal says Optimax chairman Russell Ambrose. Even if that means, in some cases, advising them against treatment

Meanwhile, with their winnings from the show intact, the couple are planning to spend the money on home improvements and a holiday.
