Phillip Schofield, who has been a glasses wearer since the age of 15, underwent surgery in 2011, having the entire experience recorded for ‘This Morning’. Just 20 minutes after surgery, Phillip retook the eye test achieving better than 20-20 vision. Schofield was amazed by the experience and how simple the procedure was. In an interview with ‘Hello!’ magazine, he commented: 

“Done! Unbelievable, astonishing, painless and quite emotional.”

Another celebrity who also went through the procedure is the infamous Keith Richards. The Rolling Stones guitarist had laser eye surgery in 2012, commenting to the Daily Mail: “It was a harmless, quick procedure and I’m very happy with the results.”
