“I have had a fantastic experience with Mr Park. He explained very clearly what the problems were, the procedures required and the potential risks so I felt fully informed and very confident when going ahead with surgery. He was particularly clear and helpful in explaining aftercare and what I needed to do to get the best possible results from the surgery, so again I felt informed and confident about what I needed to do. I am in chemotherapy so am at higher risk of complications and infection and nervous about surgery - Mr Park fully understood the treatment I’m receiving, and also ensured that his team were fully briefed and explained all the infection control measures that were in place and what measures I should follow to minimise risk. I felt very confident, informed and cared for in going ahead with surgery, which has been extremely successful, with no complications- exceeding my expectations. “

    Visited Mr Park over 14 months ago when diagnosed with a macular hole. Mr Park took the time and consideration, to see if my condition would rectify itself with close monitoring. However as time went on, the option of an operation was discussed due to my condition stalling, this was taken in account of my own well being and what was best for myself. Operation date was booked, talked through the whole process with risk and maybe further treatment in the future. Operation went very well, with follow up visits and now have the sight back in which I originally lost. Would most definitely recommend Mr Park if you have problems with your eyes, as thoughtfu, knowledgeable and made to feel at ease through the whole experience.

    I have had two procedures carried out by Mr Park. The first for a detached retina was two years ago under the NHS. Recently I needed a cataract operation and I was very pleased that I was able to choose Mr Park after the success of the first operation. This again has been very successful and I have excellent vision in the eye. In both cases I was well informed about the procedures, risks and aftecare needed. After my experience, I fully recommend Mr Park to any prospective patient.
