About

Mr Amir Hamid was Awarded the Top Rated Doctor Prize by Doctify in April 2018 & 2019

Mr. Amir Hamid is a highly experienced refractive surgeon, having performed over 7000 cataract and laser refractive surgeries. He was appointed as a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the North East London NHS Treatment Centre in 2011 with a special interest in cataract surgery, corneal transplantation and the correction of presbyopia but now works exclusively in Independent Practice in the Harley Street area of London.

He has received the Certification in Laser Refractive Surgery by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (CertLRS). He is exceptionally skilled in the use of SMILE, LASIK and LASEK treatments as well as the most advanced Multifocal intraocular lenses and is also certified in the use of the Artisan Iris Clip lens and the Staar Visian ICL, in order to serve patients unsuitable for laser therapy. Aiming to provide the best medical care possible, he has completed a Corneal and Anterior Segment Fellowship that allowed him to extensively practice his skills in the particular domain.

Mr Hamid is a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) in the fields of laser eye surgery, presbyopia correcting intraocular lenses, lens replacement surgery in post laser eye surgery and intraocular lens power measurements.

In addition he is a highly acclaimed clinical investigator, always at the forefront of new refractive treatments and technologies. He regularly presents his published scientific articles and papers at Cataract and Surgery Conferences in the UK, Europe and US and is a manuscript reviewer for the British Medical Journal.

He gained both his Final FRCOphth and Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in 2010.

Explanation

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.

Explanation

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.

Is a colleague

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.
