I was able to appreciate Doctor Donate’s great surgical competence. The result was perfect with thorough post-operative follow-up. I now have good visual acuity in my daily life and my physical activities. I can only recommend his high-quality care to those who want surgery of this type.

What a joy to no longer wear glasses or lenses! I am an ophthalmologist in Annecy, and I trusted my colleague completely. I quickly forget this old handicap; but appreciate being freed from this visual defect whether at work (behind the microscope), in my sports (swimming, fencing, mountain biking, skiing, paragliding, climbing, nights in a refuge…) or when travelling.

The intervention was carried out perfectly and painlessly in about 15 minutes. When I awoke, I had no pain and perfectly clear sight, which allowed me to work the next morning without glasses. Since the operation, all is well. I can drive and do sport without glasses. Thank you to Doctor Donate and team for their kindness and the quality of their care.

The surgical procedure was carried out under optimal safety and hygiene conditions and lasted very little time. I immediately rediscovered the pleasure of a clear and sharp vision both from a distance and from near. I can only recommend this surgery, which has given me visual comfort daily. I now see details that I absolutely couldn’t see with glasses (even with the best correction).

I arrived at the laser centre and had my surgery under local anaesthesia. I had no pain and returned home that afternoon. By the end of the afternoon, the pain had disappeared, and my sight was almost perfect. My only regret is that I didn’t have this intervention earlier.

I can now work all day on the screen without fatigue. I recommend this solution if you want to regain the freedom of your younger years.
