Dr Aziz was a gdsend. I was very pleased with my experience. I can be a hard critic at times. I had been recommended by a friend who said this is the Dr I need! The correspondence before the operation was brilliant and this gave me great confidence. This was my first encounter with the Doctor and it was worlds apart from previous experiences elsewhere. It was good to be treated with professionalism and care. He made me feel that I was in safe hands and made me smile, that’s when you know someone is going beyond the call of duty. It was like dealing with trusted family member. I am truly grateful and won’t get that awful feeling of worry if this problem occurs again. I appreciated his follow up and willingness to answer questions (after hours). He is truly a wonderful doctor and a lovely man. I recommend him to anyone that needs guidance and help. You will not be disappointed. Once again a big thank to you.

I was well looked after by my surgeon and the procedure wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I would recommend my surgeon. My surgeon was very friendly and explained very well as she went on. I wouldn't be scared to have the other eye done.

I'm in my late 40s, I had a cataract in my left eye and over the past few years, I noticed my vision getting worse. It's my only eye and so I was quite concerned. From a recommendation, I made an appointment to see Mr Mitry at the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth. Mr Mitry discussed with me whether to have cataract surgery now or wait. Whilst he fully explained the risks present in all eye surgery, he also put them in perspective so that I could make a fully informed decision. He answered very clearly the many questions which I had. I didn't feel under any pressure or rush and I felt very reassured. It was clear both from me speaking with him and also from what I had found on this website and others that he is a very well qualified, competent and caring doctor. I decided to go ahead with the surgery. It would be a day procedure under local anaesthetic (so that I don't feel anything) and light sedation (I would remain awake but be relaxed) lasting for about 20-minutes. I would be able to go home the same day and return to work after about 1-2 weeks. The operation was exactly as Mr Mitry described. I was super comfortable lying there awake throughout the whole operation but feeling no pain whatsoever and very relaxed. Mr Mitry carefully explained what he was about to do at various points during the operation. After the operation finished, Mr Mitry told me that it had gone very well. I had already noticed that my sight seemed better than before the operation and after the first 24-hours, I was amazed and very happy with my sight. It was much clearer, colours were more vibrant and the world seemed a new place! I feel that having Mr Mitry as my eye surgeon made a huge difference to how happy and reassured I felt about having cataract surgery on my only eye. The surgery went very well - there was zero pain and minimal discomfort - and I am extremely happy with my eyesight now. It has literally been life changing!
