Explanation

My treatment, for refractive lens exchange, from the first consultation until discharge was excellent. Mr Day was very professional at all times, giving clear and informative explanations at every stage. The thorough pre and post operative scans and testing were reassuring, contributing to the understanding that informed decisions were being made. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Day to any family or friends.

Explanation

Aside from exceptional professionalism and care, what was particularly noticeable is how during the two separate cataract operations, Mr Day talked through the entire surgery both allaying and fears I had but also making the few minutes that it took feel even shorter. I cannot recommend his care enough, especially if like me you are squeamish at the thought of your eyes being operated upon. His extended team of staff followed up at every stage for explanations and appointments making the whole process extremely easy and all at the world class Moorfields.
