What our customers are saying
I was concerned that something wasn’t right with my vision. Amanda saw me the same day of my concern, conducted some scans and found the problem with my eyes immediately. She referred me to the Eye Department at Eastbourne DGH without fail and I had an appointment the following Monday where the consultant wanted to run some more tests. I saw another consultant three days later and had laser eye surgery that day for a problem where I could have lost my sight. I cannot recommend Focus Medical Eye Centre highly enough, from the receptionists to the opticians; nothing was too much trouble. I feel so fortunate to have these wonderful people looking after me and my eyes.
With grateful thanks
