Cataract surgery went well. Everything explained well. Although this was my second surgery so knew what to expect. Wasn't keen on the needle in my eye. But that was the only downside. Vision good now. So glad I had it done.

I was dreading the operation as I have a sort of phobia about anything near my eyes. I need not have worried. Everyone in the Department was very friendly and welcoming. Everthing was explained in full detail, and Dr Qureshi gave a running commentary as he performed the operation. I have no worries about having my other eye treated.

I have now had both of my cataracts done by Mr Qureshi and I could not have asked for better care from all the staff, both operations were successful. Like most patients I was a bit apprehensive about what was going to happen but Mr Qureshi was calm and re-assuring and explained the whole process clearly. I would defiantly recommend Mr Qureshi for your eye care requirements.

The complete experience was seamless. All the members of the team were very pleasant and efficient throughout the process. After getting home and removing the patch over my eye I was surprised how much clearer everything was, even after only a few hours since Mr Qureshi had performed the cataract surgery.

The nursing staff at the clinic were very efficient and explained what every procedure was for i.e. eye drops and then explained the effect on the eye. I felt very comfortable going into the theatre knowing that my procedure would be pain free but I was nervous nonetheless. My right eye was done first, a very strange but painless procedure and the result was amazing. When the left eye was done several weeks later I was less nervous and again felt comfortable. However the procedure was slightly different as I had an injection into my eye which I was not expecting and found it to be quite stressful. The second eye took considerably longer to recover but the result was as the first eye and I now have no need to wear glasses except for reading. I would certainly advise anyone to have the procedure done as it takes only a very short while and the results are worth any temporary discomfort.

The operation went smoothly and Mr Qureshi explained what he was doing as he went along. Unfortunately I had an allergic reaction to the drops, which took a fortnight to resolve itself, but his advice was good and helped me to heal. I hope he is the one who will do my other eye in due course.

I attended Mr Quereshi Eye clinic in mid December 2019 where he and his staff efficiently replaced the lens in my right eye due to vision problems. The whole procedure only took 20-30 minutes including having the eye numbed in the theatre. I then had a period of time where I had to bathe my eye to keep infection to a minimum. I was actually booked to have my left eye done in March 2020 but due to a bletheritus infection this had to be put on hold and I now have to re-book once the corona virus situation allows it. Overall an efficient service by Mr Quereshi and his staff.

As a very scared patient, I was put completely at ease, the procedure was absolutely unbelievable. Within thirty minutes it was done. The staff from the bookings to the preparation are second to none, as is the surgery. I have now been given renewed vision. My sincere thanks to you all. T. Carver.

As someone who is 'Hospital Phobic' Mr Qureshi fully explained the procedure, and put me at ease both before, during and after the surgery. On the subsequent check-up visit he really removed any further concerns I had about my cataract surgery, and put my mind at rest.

The whole experience was very easy. Everything was clearly explained from the first consultation in Tenterden opticians to my follow-up appointments. The first eye operation was so good I opted to go for the other eye very soon after the first. I now have near 20:20 vision for the first time in my life.
