A few words from Mr Byles…

“Eye laser treatment or surgery can be frightening for many people, hence I work to make the experience as stress-free as possible for my patients at every stage.

“My first priority is to ensure that they receive the best treatment for them; which means discussing their visual needs and matching these with the focus and general health of their eyes. At Exeter Eye we use state-of-the-art scans to provide as much information as possible about a patients’ eyes before discussing their options, to see what is right for them”.
