“Dan made me very confident and relaxed and explained clearly what was happening at every stage. As well as that his laser treatment has reduced my very high eye pressure to acceptable levels without the need for drops and will check them in six months time.“

    The outstanding quality of a consultation with Mr Lindfield is he listened to me. No question was unanswered, everything was explained with care and concern. When it came to treatment nothing was hurried and I truly felt reassured in a situation I was dreading.
