Patient Testimonials

After years of wearing glasses and contact lenses I finally made up my mind and went for the Smile procedure. On the day of the procedure, in just over 10 minutes I walked out without the need to ever wear glasses or lenses again!

SMILE patient

A very positive experience 🙂 I was well taken care of, with a lecture explanation of the procedure and explanation of all tests involved. The staff are all very helpful, and Andrei Camenzuli managed to answer all my questions on messenger too. I was even checked upon whilst waiting to be served. The surgeon's magic hands gave me my eyesight back. Full points to the eye clinic for SMILE eye laser surgery!

SMILE Patient

The SMILE surgery has changed my life and made a dream come true. The staff were super helpful as well and the service/treatment was amazing! I would definitely recommend laser eye treatment to others!

SMILE Patient

After years of deliberation, I finally got rid of my spectacles and contact lenses. It has always been my dream to do so and now it came true, thanks to the great team at Saint James Eye Clinic. They were very helpful and the service they offered was top notch.

The Eye Clinic immediately set out to achieve ISO quality certification that would guide our processes and procedures in order to ensure consistency in the quality delivery of our care.
