Why Butterfly Vision?

The butterfly represents an amazing transformation that would seem impossible if we didn’t already know it was true. When the butterfly emerges it has amazing new vision.

Known as omni-vision, the butterfly’s compound eyes enable her to simultaneously see in all directions at the same time with a mosaic of individual images that form a whole picture. She can see even the red and ultraviolet. Many flowers have UV patterns on their petals, help them find flowers from which to drink nectar.

We can’t promise you omni-vision but we can give you freedom from glasses and contact lenses, and provide substantially improved vision for driving and sport.

Professional Ethics

Unlike many laser eys surgery clinics we adhere to the Medical Council Professional Conduct & Ethics and take this responsibility very seriously. John’s Medial Council Registration Number is 013270

Whether it is the early decision making process, transparent pricing, or aftercare, we believe it is our patient centred focus that ensures we receive such a high level of referrals from our patients family and friends year after year.

I had laser eye surgery last September. I had a very high prescription and chose this clinic because aftercare with the surgeon was very important. I hadn’t realized that other clinics were charging extra for high prescriptions. I think it is important to let people know what to look out for, that’s why I’m posting. I’ve perfect eyesight now and thrown away my glasses after 25 years!

Aftercare Programme

Had my surgery two weeks ago and cannot believe the difference already. Eyesight is perfect and no side effects. Fifteen minutes extra in bed every morning as I don’t have to put in lenses and I don’t have to hide indoors when it’s windy! Had been absolutely dreading the surgery as I’m very squeamish -especially with my eyes –but it really was over and done with in a few minutes. The surgeon put me totally at ease. Would definitely recommend.

Met John Fenton in my taxi as I was driving him home, when he told me he was an eye surgeon, I told him I had been refused by three laser clinics because they felt I may need to be done twice and therefore they were not interested. John was outraged and told me he would do my eyes no matter what. He has transformed my life by freeing me of the glasses I had to put on every morning before I got out of bed to just see the floor.

One day after treatment and I am already over the moon with the results. I can't believe I can see so clearly. This is a complete miracle and I can't explain to you how much I appreciate the level of care and committment I have received. I will be recommending Mr Fenton and his team to all my family and friends. Thanks so much for making something I never thought possible a reality.

Just had my one month post-op consultation. I now have perfect vision. I cannot get over what a difference laser eye surgery has made to the normal routines in life. I can get out of the house faster in the morning because I don't have to spend time putting in lenses.

I had eye surgery three months ago. Really happy with my experience. Staff were all great and helped to calm my nerves. I was able to go back to work after a few days but took about another two weeks to adjust to my new eyes. After that it has been plain sailing and I only regret I didn't get the surgery sooner.
