    I would recommend Dr Kashani to everyone. He put me at ease right from my first appointment. Since having the cataract surgery I can now see clearly and it is wonderful. I could see well the day after my op and can honestly say it is truly amazing. Having the surgery not only means the cataracts are no longer there but my vision is better than it has ever been. I no longer need glasses for long distance and am in awe of everything I can see. This experience has been life changing and has made me feel I want to live life to the full. I will always be thankful to Dr Kashani for his dedication and skill.

    Excellent. Mr Kashani spent a considerable amount of time examining my eyes and explained everything very thoroughly. He was easy to talk to and happily answered all my questions. The staff at Bexhill hospital were all very caring and the whole procedure was very smooth and stress free. I am thrilled with the result of my cataract operation. Thank you so much to Mr Kashani and his team for the excellent treatment.

    From my first consultation for cataracts with Mr Kashani through to post operative check up I am more than satisfied with the treatment I have received. I would have no hesitation in saying the attention i received was excellent. He explained the procedure in an easy way to understand and was very good at answering my questions. I would have every confidence in him if I ever needed any further surgery.

    In all of the consultations I had right from the start with Mr Kashani, I found he took the time to explain the process and the treatments my condition required in terms that were easily understood. He is very approachable and readily answers any questions raised & providing reassurance when & where necessary. He kindly kept me informed of developments when Covid caused a delay to the original lens replacement surgery timetable. The whole process was very smooth and I am delighted with the outcome.

    Mr Kashani is an excellent cataract surgeon who cares deeply for his patients. He is also a highly knowledgeable and skilled expert in disorders of the retina. As the former clinical lead of his trust he transformed the macular service to ensure an exceptional level of care was delivered. I would gladly recommend him to my friends and family.
