Kelvin's story

"I love to drive, but it had become less enjoyable for me before I had the operations. The difference in my vision now is incredible.”

Kelvin, 69 from Gloucester found his eyesight beginning to fail him and was starting to find driving difficult being less able to see things clearly. Kelvin's optician recommended that he contact Newmedica. He was surprised to find how easy and quick the process was and within a few weeks he had his cataracts removed. The results made a huge improvement on his everyday life and he wishes he had the operation sooner because the restoration to his sight was so fast and painless.
