What do patients with Myopia experience?
The answer is simple – they feel limited and not in charge of their life
The world feels different with glasses on
You’ve gotten used to facial furniture you wear day in and day out. But the headaches, eyestrain and squinting will never be fun.
Contact lenses can be bothersome and risky
Fortunately, glasses and contact lenses can improve short-sightedness. But, if you dislike the way your glasses look or feel, or if the high risk of contact lens infection worries you, then this isn’t a great solution. Research also shows that your eyes are safer with laser eye surgery than contact lenses.
Dreaming of 20/20, spectacle-free
Saying premature goodbyes to spectacles is annoying and expensive, and with contact lenses, you are essentially renting your ability to see clearly. You often think about how lucky those people are with normal vision.
You prefer your face without glasses
It’s nice when friends and family pay you compliments on your glasses, but you rarely agree. They may make your eyes look unusually small, or detract from your facial features.
Don’t just grin and bear them
If you’re tired of your glasses or contact lenses, let us help you. With modern laser eye surgery, we can correct your short-sightedness so that you can enjoy life at all distances, free from visual aids. If you’re too young for laser eye surgery, we may be able to slow down the progression of short-sightedness with drops.

We are proud to hear we make a meaningful difference in your life
Have been dreaming about laser eye surgery since I was 15. Can’t believe that my eyes can actually see right now without contacts, wow! Will recommend My-iClinic to all of my friends. Mr Bolger is the best.
Beautiful setup plus excellent service, reassuring expertise of surgeons, friendly staff and yet very professional. Absolutely phenomenal all round! Very pleased with everything.
Brilliant experience with My-iClinic for laser eye surgery. The team are clearly experts in the area, and I felt well looked after through the entire process. Honest, friendly and professional, I thoroughly recommend My-iClinic for anyone considering laser corrective surgery.
I had a really satisfactory experience with my-iClinic and am quite happy with the results of the surgery and the aftercare. I would like to recommend it to anyone who wants to have any kind of eye surgery with them. Absolutely brilliant.?
I was struggling with a viral conjunctivitis. After 2 visits to Moorfields and the condition getting worse, I was recommended to My-iClinic. I felt instantly looked after, and was seen almost daily due to the severity of the virus. It has now been 4 weeks and I am well on the mend thanks to the care and patience of Mr Bolger. I also found the pricing of this practice extremely reasonable unlike most of private practice medicine.
I’d highly recommend this clinic because of its nice, friendly and experienced team; they all are very professional in every aspect, you would get the best advise here! Also, the clinic looks very modern from the inside and you will just feel very comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole process in a place like this.
