“As soon as I got into my first consultation with Mr Islam I knew I was in good hands....he explained everything perfectly, from that day to the operation to the final consultation he was so understanding and very on the ball. I now have perfect vision and a new lease of life and it’s all down to this man, he is an absolute magician when it comes to eyes!!!!“
