Lillian S. This lady had been very shortsighted, and wore spectacles for everyday life since teenage years. She underwent first eye cataract surgery and this was complicated by capsular tear, the one in a hundred complication which can occur. Her right surgery therefore required a longer time to perform and the complication meant extra treatment and intensive follow up for a few weeks until I was happy the right eye was settled. She then underwent left cataract surgery without any complication. The visual results for both eyes was excellent so that her right eye had 6/6 vision without spectacles and her left 6/5. I am pleased that she has left this testimonial, because it is the results of the one in a hundred complicated operations which I believe reflect the real skill of a surgeon, and her testimonial means a lot to me, because of the extra time and effort spent insuring that she received excellent care.

I have worn spectacles since I was 17 years old, I am now 71. Over the past six years my vision has deteriorated and I developed cataracts, my eyesight became so poor I was advised by my optician that I should no longer be driving and that I required cataract surgery.
I saw Mr Shafiq and an appointment was made to remove the cataract in my right eye, my left eye was treated 3weeks later. Both procedures went smoothly and I am recovering well, the improvement to my vision is such that I no longer need spectacles for distance I only use them for reading.
I can recommend Mr Shafiq and his team if you require this procedure.
