    I must admit, I am guilty (and probably not alone in my guilt) of having taken my vision for granted. Upon learning of my injury, I was filled with trepidation about the future of my eyesight and the prospect of needing surgery to correct what had turned out to be quite a serious situation. Mr Mitry allayed my fears very quickly and armed me with all of the important information with his gentle yet very honest approach. Having come highly recommended, I can admit to having had high expectations but these were effortlessly surpassed. The smoothness of my recovery is testament to his expertise, care and dexterity, and for this, I am truly thankful. He has done a fantastic job with my eyes and I am confident he has ensured me the very best outcome I could have hoped for, despite the seriousness of my case. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr Mitry to anybody, not simply because he is an elite clinician (and he really is), but also because he is a jolly decent human being. You have all my thanks.

    Mr Mitry provided a very good service. He listened to the problem, asked relevant questions, diagnosed, and offered a range of treatments with clear explanations of levels of success and appropriateness of treatment. The follow up was of equally high quality service.

    The procedure (cataract) went extremely well. I was very nervous at the idea of undergoing this procedure but Dr Mitry took the time to answer all my questions & to explain in details the pros & cons. Dr Mitry ; the team are very pro and I am very happy I decided to undergo this procedure, as I feel I am seeing true colours again.

    I had refractive lens surgery in December 2020. A daunting thought to have someone performing any type of procedure on your eyes, but I immediately felt at ease as Dr Mitry talked me through the procedure and put my mind at rest. He was calming and reassuring and it was clear he knew exactly what he was doing and had a wealth of knowledge. This might sound like an obvious requirement, but when you are about to put the future of your sight in someone’s hands, these are the types of thoughts that go through your head! We quickly got into a conversation about rugby and before I knew it the procedure was over.

    The thought of any operation on my eyes filled me with fear yet now having undergone two cataract procedures under Mr. Mitry’s exceptional care I am transformed! I had known that cataract surgery was inevitable for quite some time but managed to delay the issue for many months. My sight was definitely worsening as I aged and nothing looked too clear anymore. However, once I had met with Danny Mitry for a consultation I immediately felt calmed by his warm and professional manner. I didn’t feel that I was being pushed into an operation which I still doubted that I truly needed but he took the time to explain the procedure in full and we discussed all options. My two cataract operations were carried out two weeks apart. I chose to have sedation so that I could be in blissful ignorance throughout the procedures as despite all the reassurance given I was frankly still scared! Now post surgery I have to say that I am so very happy with the outcome. My sight is better than I could have ever imagined it could be. From having to wear contact lenses with magnifying glasses for close work for many years and then varifocal glasses, I now don’t need anything! I have amazing vision in both eyes. Distance vision is perfect and I can work on the computer and use my mobile without any extra help. I can even thread a needle now - my new sight is fantastic. Perhaps my golf will improve as well! Danny Mitry’s care and attention throughout was excellent. I received telephone calls after each operation and had two follow-up consultations to ensure that everything was satisfactory. A new brighter world has opened up to me! You have changed my life! Thank you so much!

    My experience with Danny was brief but direct. Danny was very specific about what he was going to do and, although there was a change to the type of lenses that were going to be fitted, Danny explained why those changes were need. In terms of the surgery itself, I think this took no longer than 20-25 minutes and during this time, I have conversation with Danny. In summary, I would describe Danny as being very professional.

    From my first consultation in Optical express in Belfast to the procedure itself my experience has been first class and the aftercare was also of the highest standard. Following the scans, in Belfast, it was explained to me what was involved and when I decided to have the procedure a date was arranged to have the treatment in Dublin with very little delay. The location in Dublin was very easy to find with private parking which was very convenient. When I met Mr. Mitry he explained in great detail what was involved which was very reassuring. The procedure was a resounding success and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone with eyesight problems Many thanks for your fine work

    Mr Mitry carried out my LASIK surgery close to a month ago and as a result I have achieved 20/20 vision in both eyes which I am extremely happy about. I met Mr Mitry on the day of the surgery and throughout the day he was extremely friendly and down to earth yet also remained very professional. Before the surgery he explained what the procedure would entail and what to expect during and after. Throughout the actual surgery itself, Mr Mitry was very comforting, explaining what he was doing at each stage and how long is left of each step of the operation. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the experience I had with Mr Mitry and would definitely recommend his services.
