OcuPlan Patient Success Stories

Shirley's Story

Shirley joined OcuPlan following two cataract operations. During which she discovered that she had glaucoma. Shirley was struggling to see when driving, especially in the dark and unfortunately her private medical insurance didn't cover the monitoring of glaucoma, meaning that she had to cover the cost of her eye care.

Shirley discovered OcuPlan and signed up allowing her to regularly see her optometrist for OCT scans and visual field tests and her eye consultant for monitoring and advice. This provided the peace of mind that she needed that her glaucoma was being treated correctly.

Peter's Story

Peter joined OcuPlan to help manage and treat his glaucoma, he found that OcuPlan provided peace of mind and allowed him to save up to £70 on each consultant visit.

Signing up to OcuPlan means that Peter now receives the care that he needs to monitor and look after his glaucoma for an affordable monthly price.

Pam's Story

Pamela is an OcuPlan customer, she's being monitored once a year for high ocular pressure and suspected glaucoma. Pam has suffered from eye issues most of her life and has experienced care privately and through the NHS. Last year she was recommended by her consultant to join OcuPlan.

OcuPlan provides her with the peace of mind that she needs that her eyes are being monitored regularly, and she feels more secure knowing that financially she can spread the cost over 12 months.

Roselyn's Story

Roselyn was diagnosed with Wet AMD in 2011 and was registered blind in 2013. Like many AMD patients her diagnosis experience wasn’t pleasant, she was advised by her optometrist to see a consultant ophthalmologist who told her that she has AMD and she’ll likely go blind. She wasn’t provided with any advice or guidance at this stage which left her incredibly worried.

Understandably, receiving this news was a huge shock for Roselyn, but with the help of local charities providing her with information and low vision aids, and now with the peace of mind that she receives through seeing an OcuPlan consultant twice a year, she’s able to preserve her vision.

Paul's Story

Like many patients, when Paul discovered he had glaucoma, it was a huge shock and it took some time to process the information. Paul was only in his forties at the time and fortunately through his job had private medical cover which allowed him to be seen and diagnosed by a consultant ophthalmologist quickly and meant that he was provided with the right treatment plan to stabilise his condition.

When Paul was diagnosed, his biggest concerns were how his condition would effect his sculpting and not being able to see his children and grand children grow up. Paul wasn't able to continue with private medical care due to the cost, and was at this point introduced to OcuPlan. Through OcuPlan he's able to monitor his condition, continue to receive personalised advice and a treatment plan to preserve his sight at an affordable cost. Always seeing the same consultant who knows him, his condition and medical history provide the peace of mind that he needs.
