This lady had cataract surgery with trifocal lens implants. Her first eye surgery and recovery was uneventful. After a routine second eye operation, she developed a very aggressive inflammatory reaction, seen in only a handful of people. I treated her and monitored her improvement over a few weeks rather than the few days for her first eye. For me this kind of problem poses the challenge of requiring more input and delayed recovery. Her visual outcome was excellent in both eyes

I am Mike, Marilyn’s husband. You asked Marilyn if she would be willing to offer a testimonial, so this is her own words:
Quote: ” 40 years wearing spectacles…….NO MORE! 20:20 vision now.
I met Mr Shafiq initially to discuss cataract replacement in both of my eyes. After the consultation, it took only 3 weeks  to have the cataracts removed and replaced with tri-focal lenses. I would like to thank Mr Shafiq for the excellent expertise in his amazing surgery. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else in a similar position as I was.
Kind regards. Marilyn P”
Personally, I would like to add that you have made a huge difference to Marilyn’s day to day life. Take care.
