    Mr Kashani was very kind, thorough, reassuring and efficient. I can see amazingly well after my recent cataract surgery, especially with the eye which had a toric implant to correct my astigmatism.

    Before I met Dr Kashani I felt as if others saw me as another person with an eye condition, however he identified my eye disease, which not only allowed me to understand it more but gave me the reassurance that the treatment given was the most suitable. He is always very reassuring and approachable but most of all he cares and that in itself feels personal. He listens and knows if I am having a tough time and always has time to investigate and arrange treatment. I have been his patient for many years now and have openly told him I would not want any other consultant treating me. A very remarkable person indeed

    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.

    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.
