“I had been treated by Mr Pringle's team in an earlier NHS invesitgation and surgery on my left eye and had met him before. Recently I had been experiencing symptoms in my right eye which caused me to be concerned that there may be new damage occurring in my right eye which could get worse if left too long befor being addressed in the current Covid climate. Mr Pringle was very thorough & gentle in his examination and explained the results very clearly both in technical and layman's terms. The whole experince felt completely unhurried and thorooughly reassuraing.“

    Mr Pringle was the most professional and caring consultant . I needed Retinal Surgery and had been treated prior to meeting with him .Alas the problem had not been done sufficiently well and I was referred to him for a Check up and possible revision . Mr Pringle explained everything in simple plain terms that I could understand and reassured me all the way . He attendance is simply excellent and I felt calm considering he was dealing with my Eyes !. Not the most pleasant procedure however he made is swift and bearable . I really cannot thank him enough and would recommend him without any thought . I had my follow up appointment today and was signed off so to speak with a successful result .
