Miss Sonia Mall Ophthalmology Consultant, Harpenden, Herts, private hospital specialist.

"I just had to write to tell you how much my sight has improved.  I was naturally very nervous but you put me at my ease and, honestly, felt little or no discomfort during the procedure.  You are amazing!  Thank you so much!" Joan

"I am so grateful that you have been able to return my sight, it has completely transformed my life.  I would also like to thank you for the compassionate consultancy you provided prior to my first cataract extraction.  I am not renowned for my bravery, but your understanding and professionalism gave me the encouragement I needed.  The second cataract extraction was a totally different matter, all fears and trepidation had been removed, and I was looking forward to the operation, the results of which I knew would significantly improve m quality of life. In recent years the cataract problems had prevented me taking photographs, a hobby I had enjoyed for over 50 years. The cataract removal has allowed me to start taking photographs again.  I am indebted to you and your team." Martin
