I was operated with ICL
I had been wearing glasses for 21 years and contact lenses for 18 years. Since then I have been asking Dr. Poyales and Dr. Ortiz de Zárate if they could operate on me. "Wait for another years to see if you stabilise" was what they replied at each check-up, until on the last check-up when they said I could have the operation whenever I wanted. I didn't hesitate and I had the operation within 15 days.
On the day I had the first eye operated on, Dr. Poyales explained to me exactly what he was going to do during the operation and what I would feel, which helped to relive my nerves.
From the moment I arrived to the day a left the clinic all the staff treated me wonderfully. I was slightly uncomfortable for the light, although I did not need to put on my glasses. The following day I was operated on my other eye and everything was even better. The experience of the first day made me go on the second day without being nervous, as I knew how what was going happen. I though it would take me a couple of months to see properly, yet a few days later I could see better than before when I was wearing my contact lenses.
An experience that I would recommend to everyone.
