A couple of months ago the vision in my left eye became very blurred. So much so that it was seriously affecting my work and confidence in driving. Not good when I had planned a driving holiday in my camper van for the summer!
It turned out I had developed a cataract which was over the cornea. I had no idea of how long I would wait for NHS surgery therefore I began to look into private treatment and one name that leapt off the page was Mr Ayad Shafiq.
I contacted him and within two weeks my surgery was done. I am so pleased I took this route. I have an astigmatism and Mr Shafiq recommended a toric lense (which I believe is unavailable on the NHS) and the results are truly amazing.
I had been very scared and worried about the procedure and if anyone had told me that I would actually have a giggle in Theatre with Mr Shafiq and his team, I wouldn’t have believed them. However we did and I can honestly say it was a painless procedure.
Furthermore they all put me very much at ease and I can’t thank them enough. I will be returning very soon to have another toric lense fitted in my right eye.
Thank you Mr Shafiq and team. You said you would look after me and you certainly did. You have changed my life.
