MR T WORE STRONG MAGNIFYING SPECTACLES OF LONG-SIGHTEDNESS AND CAME TO ME WITH CATARACTS. I WAS ABLE TO RESTORE HIS VISION BY REMOVING THE CATARACTS AND IMPLANTING LENSES THAT FOCUSSED HIM FIR DISTANCE WITHOUT GLASSES.
Firstly I would like to thank Mr Shafiq and all his colleagues at the Nuffield Newcastle for their professionalism during my recent eye operations.
As a young boy I had to wear very strong and heavy lensed spectacles because of long sightedness and then later on in life changing to hard contact lenses. Over recent years I have had problems with these lenses and being told by my optician that I also had cataracts he advised me to contact Mr Shafiq for a consultation.
During this consultation Mr Shafiq advised me that he could rectify my hypermetropia at the same time implanting new lenses to correct the cataracts. He explained everything with great clarity and answered all my queries to reassure me.
Over the next four weeks I had both eyes operated on successfully. The difference in brightness, colour and sharpness was outstanding. Previous to the operations it was like I was looking through a yellow/cream filter.
During the operations Mr Shafiq was so reassuring and has a fantastic personality that I would recommend him as a very professional and accomplished eye surgeon and have no reservations in recommending him to anyone who has any eye problems.
Thank you Mr Shafiq for changing my life for the better and making the world a brighter place.
