I had no postoperative pain, and an hour later, it was as if the procedure had not happened except that I can see better! Very fast recovery and amazing results. Living without glasses for the first time in your life, it does not cost. Go for it!!

Daniel A.

I feel like I have found my freedom. Goodbye glasses and lenses, I know have perfect vision from far and near. A big thank you to Dr David Donate and his entire team for their professionalism, warm listening and their reassuring follow-up.

Annie B.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The surgical procedure was carried out under optimal safety and hygiene conditions and lasted very little time. I immediately rediscovered the pleasure of a clear and sharp vision both from a distance and from near. I can only recommend this surgery, which has given me visual comfort daily. I now see details that I absolutely couldn’t see with glasses (even with the best correction).

Dr Azzam A.

This doctor operated on me in 2009. Multifocal implants …. having “bionic” eyes when you have had glasses at the bottom of bottles for 50 years is great. .. do not dream of having these eyes there, it is the thousand and one nuances of the green colour of the trees which surround the clinic of the pardieu ….. in 2020 I have 12.6 for my right eye and only 10 for l left eye I had at least fifteen diopters before my operation ….. it is not beautiful life?

Camille M.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The clinic is extremely clean and stylish. The people who work there are welcoming, smiling, patient and professional. Perhaps some customers might find the services expensive, but you are sure to be well taken care of with follow-up and fully informed. Our eyes are priceless!

The operation (SMILE) was painless and very fast for both eyes. Later that evening I watched a movie and could finally see the subtitles without glasses!

Alain R.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The intervention was carried out perfectly and painlessly in about 15 minutes. When I awoke, I had no pain and perfectly clear sight, which allowed me to work the next morning without glasses. Since the operation, all is well. I can drive and do sport without glasses. Thank you to Doctor Donate and team for their kindness and the quality of their care.

Dr C.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

While I have worn glasses all my life, since this intervention, I do not wear glasses for either near or far. I am very satisfied with the result. Thank you to you and your team.

Pierre G.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

It really changes daily life to be able to do without glasses. I don’t have to worry about them fogging up; I can see well in all circumstances (in the pool or the sea); and my field of vision has expanded because glasses frames no longer block my peripheral vision.

Allan S.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I am very satisfied with my results from the SMILE procedure. I did not feel any pain during the operation or after. I thank Doctor Donate for his expertise and his work. I also thank all the team who were kind and attentive. Thank you all.

Lydia B.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was able to appreciate Doctor Donate’s great surgical competence. The result was perfect with thorough post-operative follow-up. I now have good visual acuity in my daily life and my physical activities. I can only recommend his high-quality care to those who want surgery of this type.

Professor Olivier D.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I followed the advice of a friend and had a consultation with Dr Donate. I now have 10/10 sight in each eye. Thank you to the team for your professionalism. I recommend them to all… they’re innovative, rigorous and cutting edge.

Antoinette T.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I highly recommend the clinic. The staff, the care and the post-operative make you wonderfully well supported during your life change. I had myopia, and to this day, I no longer have glasses. I had no pain or discomfort.

Julie P.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I arrived at the laser centre and had my surgery under local anaesthesia. I had no pain and returned home that afternoon. By the end of the afternoon, the pain had disappeared, and my sight was almost perfect. My only regret is that I didn’t have this intervention earlier.

Dr J.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

What a joy it is to open your eyes in the morning and see what is going on around you without first having to look for your glasses. It is liberating to have independence from this unattractive exogenous transplant. I should have done this earlier! So don’t hesitate, take the plunge.

Professor Devouassoux M.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The intervention (PRELEX) was done under general anaesthesia at the outpatient clinic. I had no pain. The results were breathtaking the next day. No more glasses to drive or work. I forgot about my eye problems. Thank you to Dr Donate’s team for their kindness and professionalism.

Dr Yves L.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

What a joy to no longer wear glasses or lenses! I am an ophthalmologist in Annecy, and I trusted my colleague completely. I quickly forget this old handicap; but appreciate being freed from this visual defect whether at work (behind the microscope), in my sports (swimming, fencing, mountain biking, skiing, paragliding, climbing, nights in a refuge…) or when travelling.

Dr Gregora M.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I had SMILE laser eye surgery with Doctor Donate to correct my myopia, and I’m really happy with the result! What happiness to no longer wear glasses or lenses. The care at the office and the Laser Vision Roosevelt Center was perfect! Thanks to the whole team.

Thanks to the advice and great skills of Doctor David Donate, I opted for multifocal implants, and now I work and live without glasses and with great comfort.

Dr Bernard M.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

After multi-focal implants, I can now see very well, even on the computer. Doctor Donate is very professional and listened to my needs.

Farid R.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

A new life begins without glasses, thanks to Dr Donate. He and his team were very professional. They were always available to answer my questions, and all in all, it was a very pleasant atmosphere. The organization of the intervention was perfect. Do not hesitate to contact Dr David Donate.

Everyone is pleasant and makes you feel very comfortable at this high-end establishment.

I can now work all day on the screen without fatigue. I recommend this solution if you want to regain the freedom of your younger years.

Dr A.

After years of wandering from ophthalmologist to ophthalmologist, I finally found Doctor Donate and his team. They listened and gave me real therapeutic responses. I will recommend to my friends!
