I spent most of my life having extremely poor eyesight, throughout primary school I was unable to function without my glasses and I made the move to contact lenses as soon as I hit high school. My prescription was so poor that I had to get specific, very expensive permanent contact lenses that were very uncomfortable and despite my best efforts resulted in numerous eye infections. I just persevered with these lenses as I didn't know that there was an alternative. In early 2010, when I was 25 years old, I found out about the ICL operation and had it expertly performed by Dr Mark Deist in the middle of that year. I know that it sounds cliché but this operation has been the most life changing event I have had. My quality of life after the surgery is like nothing I could have dreamed of. I have started participating in outdoor sports activities and have actually recently completed the Ironman triathlon on the back of this surgery. Throughout my childhood I was always worried to participate in sports due to my contact lenses, but since the surgery I have been able to take control of that aspect of my life and am all the happier for it. For me, this surgery was not cosmetic. This surgery was a complete change in my quality of life, my level of activity and ultimately, my happiness.
