A laser eye surgery patient has been surprised to hear that she didn't require the procedure at all.
Margaret Payne, who recently appeared on the BBC's Cash in the Attic series, had decided to spend the proceeds of her attic sale on laser eye surgery.
However, after contacting a private clinic at Optimax, Ms Payne was told that her eyes were better than she had previously been told.
"The consultation was very thorough, and I was very happy with the advice I was given," said Ms Payne.
"The whole experience was very reassuring and it was a lovely surprise to find out that I didn't need the glasses for driving."
Russel Ambrose, Optimax chairman, said: "This illustrates our commitment to giving the best possible advice to laser eye surgery candidates, as patient satisfaction is the ultimate goal, even if that means, in some cases, advising them against treatment."
It is thought that more than 100,000 laser eye surgery procedures will be carried out in the UK this year, making the choice of clinic very important for the individual.
