Mr Shafiq’s website

Mr A Shafiq, FRCOphth (London), MRCPPaeds (UK), DCH (London), MA (Cambridge University), BM & BCh (Oxford University).

More about me:

I am a Consultant Eye Surgeon working in the Nuffield Hospital,  Newcastle upon Tyne, England.

My NHS post is at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle.

I have 20 years’ experience as a Consultant Ophthalmologist performing 500 adult cataract operations per year.

I offer a bespoke cataract surgery service so that each person has vision that matches his or her needs and expectations.

I have created this website to provide information about the service I offer and about cataract surgery in general.

If you wish to see me, we would have a half hour Consultation at our first meeting. I will carefully assess your eye, and discuss the best type of lens replacement to meet your needs, take all measurements and book you in for surgery . Within 3 weeks you will have your first eye surgery and usually both eyes will have had surgery within 5 weeks of our meeting. PLEASE NOTE THAT COVID HAS CREATED A SHORT DELAY TO THE TIMING OF SURGERY . FIRST EYE SURGERY IS RUNNING 1 to 2 MONTHS AFTER OUR MEETING.

If this meets your needs read the following pages for costs, contact information, testimonials, information on all aspects of surgery and my surgical results.
