Ruth Langsford, wife of fellow presenter Eamonn Holmes, has officially had her sight restored and finally has 20/20 vision! Laser Surgery Eye immediately got on the case to find out the facts ahead of Langsford’s visit to Cheshire on 18th November, where she plans to tell of her experiences, and what we found out from the various news sources that have already had a chance to gain access to Langsford, is that this treatment has been a long time coming and was eagerly anticipated by the TV presenter. This all looks set to change a history of eye difficulties.

The presenter, who is 52, has already been commenting on the effect the surgery has had on her lifestyle, labeling it liberating and life changing, suggesting that surgery has been transformative for the star. In further detail Langsford has spoken of what her experiences were like before she decided to undergo laser eye surgery, saying that “Life before the surgery was very irritating and frustrating. It was particularly difficult at work if I had to readjust from reading auto cue or interviewing guests to checking facts on my notes. I would have to have my glasses to hand at all times, to put them on to read my notes and then take them off again.”

Elaborating on  the struggle she faced at work over the issue of her sight, Langsford went on to say “My sight with contact lenses just wasn’t sharp enough, so I used to mark up my scripts wearing glasses and then I’d put my lenses in for the show – but it was always a relief to take them out afterwards. ”

The real kick is that Langsford’s surgery wasn’t a foregone conclusion, as the providers she first went to, decided to refuse her this necessary treatment, asserting that laser eye surgery isn’t suitable for correcting refractive errors in the eyes of people over 50. At this point Langsford gave up and thought that her eyesight would remain impaired until she was told about Total Vision Correction, an alternative option for people over 50 that means that they can get the treatment they need to correct refractive errors.

It acts as a lens replacement treatment and of the treatment Langsford has since stated that “the procedure itself took 15 minutes per eye in two separate sessions four days apart.” Langsford then went on to talk about the effect that the treatment has had on her life, saying that “the freedom from wearing glasses is amazing. When I used to leave the house my main priority would be glasses above wallet or keys but now I just grab my bag and off I go. I don’t even think about it anymore.”

At Laser Surgery Eye we couldn’t be happier for Ruth Langsford, who can now live a fulfilled life style unencumbered by eye problems that pose daily obstacles. This goes to show that their are very few obstacles in the way of modern corrective eye surgery.
