    I am so pleased with the results of my bilateral cataract surgery in the professional hands of Dan Lindfield and his team. It transcends my expectations and now after wearing glasses from the age of 6 I only need them for reading. Colours are vibrant, print distinct and clear, glare from night time driving reduced substantially. I have always felt relaxed throughout at every stage. The process at each stage has been communicated so well. Highly recommend Dan Lindfield and his team. Elaine M.

    Since first consulting Dan Lindfield last year, I have received laser treatment for glaucoma as well as cataract surgery in both eyes. I was encouraged by the ease and speed of the laser treatment and the fact that it can be repeated as necessary. My vision is now much improved thanks to the cataract surgery and I can drive without glasses for the first time in years. At every stage I was told exactly what was happening and was surprised to feel so relaxed. Dan and his team could not have been more friendly and reassuring.

    I have recently had Lens replacement surgery on both eyes to correct my eye problems. I was extremely nervous on the day of the surgery but cannot thank Mr Dan Lindfield and his staff ,especially Emily his Secretary, enough for putting me at ease throughout at both my appointments and the surgery itself. The results are amazing and I am so glad that I was recommended to Mr Lindfield and I will have no hesitation in recommending my friends and family if they should need any treatment.

    Patient seen for:
    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.
