Mr Hamid was brilliant. He was very reassuring and put me at ease before the surgery. Couldn’t recommend him enough!
Very attentive, knowledgeable, experienced and calm consultant. My experience of laser eye surgery was superb. My results are amazing. I've already referred my sister and my husband is next. Thank you
Very good bedside manner, was very polite and explained my procedure thoroughly
Absolutely fantastic - the pre-procedure consultation and the procedure itself were straightforward, and he put my mind at ease completely. The day of the procedure was so easy and the staff are meticulous.
Me Amir explained the process in an easy to understand way and was always quick to respond when I had queries after the initial meeting. During the surgery he was constantly talking to me which was really reassuring to know what was going on.
For years I had been planning to have my eye surgery but was unable to proceed as I had second thoughts about it. Some of them were: will the procedure really benefit me in the long run? Will it be done in a safe and effective way, will surgeon that will perform it has the finesse to carry it out properly? All of those questions lingered to me before as I know for a fact that sight is one of the most important sense a person has and it would be a detrimental event if something went wrong. But the answers to those questions came to light when I met Me Amir. I am more than happy of the outcome after my laser eye procedure (SMILE). Currently, I'm living the thoughts I had in mind way back when I was still wearing my glasses, and I'm thrilled to say that I made the best decision with Optegra.
Dr Hamid was very professional and educated, he made a point of explaining every step to me (in a way that I would understand) so I knew exactly what was going on. He was very friendly and genuinely cared about my vision and overall experience in my follow up appointments. I have recommended his services to many others.
I felt very relaxed in Mr Hamid's hands and the procedures were explained clearly,
3 years ago I took the plunge of lense replacement for both eyes, as I didn't want to have to manage varifocal glasses any longer and it's a decision that I'm very pleased that I took. I returned as a film had started to build up on my lenses, which was causing my vision to be fuzzy. The entire team were as professional as ever and Mr Hamid provided all the relevant information and performed a quick laser procedure that resolved the issue. Thanks all.
Have you worked with this specialist?
I can give no higher recommendation for my colleague Mr Amir Hamid than to have asked him to perform same day bilateral Refractive Lens Exchange on my own mother. Having worked with Amir for 4 years I have come to admire and respect his as one of London's elite refractive surgeons. He sets the benchmark for Optegra with his outstanding outcomes and ever high patient satisfaction.
