JF who had cataracts as well as astigmatism and underwent surgery with TORIC lens implants.

I consulted Mr Shafiq early in December to speak about treatment for a cataract in my right eye – I also have an astigmatism. He explained about various lenses and I decided to have a toric lense fitted. Within two weeks I had the procedure. I was extremely nervous but Mr Shafiq and his staff treated me in a calm encouraging manner.  In theatre Mr.Shafiq was quietly reassuring and professional – which helped me to relax.
I had a pad on my eye overnight…..when it was removed the following day I was amazed at how good my sight was..IS. I have full legal driving sight in my right eye.
A month later I returned to the Nuffield Hospital to have the same procedure to my left eye and again I have an astigmatism. I once again had a toric lense implant. I wasn’t as nervous as I had experience behind me. All went smoothly with the same care and attention as before.
I now have the best eyesight I could ever have imagined – as good as it was when I was 10 or 11 years of age! I am now 72….
Mr. Shafiq not only told me ‘ he’d look after me’  and he did – he also remained professional at all times. I think he must ‘hand pick’ his staff as they were equally reassuring.
On a final note – if you are uncertain or hesitating to deal with the fact you have cataracts, please don’t wait. Go and see a consultant and I really can recommend Mr. Shafiq.
Ayad – thank you for your kindness.
