I have only praise for all aspects of my treatment for cataracts and subsequent laser treatments. Mr Manuchehri always explained the risks involved very fully and in an understandable friendly manner.
I write to thank you so much for the amazing treatment you did on my right eye after the detached retina. I have had absolutely no issues since the operation in January. Thank you for everything.
My sincere gratitude to Mr Manuchehri, both for his excellent and thorough examination, but also for his generosity. I now feel completely reassured about my eye.
He has an excellent bedside manner and a very positive attitude with the way forward. He always explains the treatment options and generates confidence and trust in the patient. The office is always efficiently run and appointments have never failed. Nothing is too much trouble.
I found Mr Manuchehri very pleasant with clear explanations and instructions. My only complaint was having to travel to the Spire Dunedin Hospital, Reading for the pre-op assessment prior to a Right Vitrectomy a journey of 50+ miles when it could have been done in my local Spire Hospital and the information sent electronically.
He is extremely experienced and kind and understanding of my ailment q
I received excellent treatment from Mr Manuchehri and his team. He removed cataracts from both my eyes. He explained everything to me thoroughly and patiently. His method of removing cataracts and his control of anxiety and discomfort is superb. I am normally a very nervous patient, but, in his care, I was calm and comfortable. I experienced no pain and minimal discomfort. I was given clear advice on the post-operative care of my eyes and had no problems whatsoever. Not only was Mr Manuchehri skilful and reassuring, but his nursing team, on the wards and in the operating theatre, were very kind and encouraging, as well as efficient and helpful. His secretary, Luisa Ramirez, organised all the appointments with great competence and kindness, making sure I received all the required information packs. In short, I cannot speak too highly of the excellent treatment I received from Mr Manuchehri and all his team.
Mr Manuchehri has treated me on several occasions over the course of my quite complex eye history. I think at last count it was eight operations over the last ten years and countless consultations in that period. Some have bee straightforward (cataract) and some much more demanding (collapsed capsular bag I think it would be called) but no matter what I have always found Mr M's manner, communication, professionalism and ability to be first rate and its thanks to his knowledge and care that I still have functioning eyesight in my right eye.
Mr Manucheri is charming and helpful. He is kind and has a an excellent manner with patients. I cannot think of anything bad or unkind to say about him
I am very sorry to say that I am very unhappy with the outcome of my cataract operation (right eye) in September 2018. Mr Manucheri was efficient and charming, and Luisa even more so. However, Mr Manucheri recommended that I have a multi-focal lens. He didn’t insist, and the final choice was mine, but he was very enthusiastic about the additional benefits , compared with a mono focal lens, and based on his recommendation, I went ahead with the multi-focal. He was aware that I had previously had Lasik surgery on both eyes. I have not been able to see well with my right eye ever since. My follow-up appointment was very soon after the operation, and I said I was happy because I assumed that the slight vision problems were because of the newness. I mentioned this on the telephone some weeks afterwards and was told to allow a couple of months for things to settle down. After 6 months, things still hadn’t improved, so I sought a second opinion with another highly reputable Opthalmic surgeon. He was very surprised that I had been given a multi focal-lens after having previously had Lasik. According to him, they very rarely work, after Lasik, because the brain finds it too hard to cope, and he would never recommend or insert such a lens in a patient in my circumstances. Unfortunately, he told me that it would be too dangerous to operate on that eye again to correct the issue. I regret, enormously, my choice. I should have chosen the simple option of a mono-focal lens and not been swayed by Mr Manucheri’s recommendation The eye that was not operated on (left eye) is still very good, but the replacement lens eye is dreadful, blurry and out of focus. For reading I use ‘readyreaders’. Distance (driving, television, theatre ) are now both a problem, which they weren’t before, and I get headaches. I now need additional glasses for those activities. I was told I probably wouldn’t need any glasses at all after the op. Sorry - but not a happy patient!
Dear Mr Manuchehri, we thank you and are so very grateful for your medical expertise in providing care for my son. Wishing you and your family a fabulous festive break.
Mr Manuchehris treatment has been transformational for me bringing whole new world of brightness and colour I was starting to forget and will extend our independence for some time I hope. Confirmation of success and likely further improvement was most welcome
Some lovely comments here Mr Manuchechri, we’d like to thank you for making patient experiences so positive here at Spire Harpenden Hospital.
Mr Manuchechri was extremely courteous and professional.
I have had treatment from my consultant before at a different hospital and chose to see him again which meant coming to the Spires. He is an amazing surgeon, with a wonderful friendly kind, a charming personality which inspires trust. I have recommended him to several friends who have been impressed by my treatment and consequently theirs.
Patient, gentle, gave clear explanations.
He was very professional and informative which gave confidence.
I am writing to express my gratitude to you and to all the members of your team who took care of me during the operations I had in August and September. I am very pleased with the results of the operations and most appreciative, not only of your great skill but also of your patience and kindness. I am sure that for you and your team the removal of cataracts is a routine procedure, but for the patient, it is, inevitably, a rather frightening experience. All the members of your staff, both on the ward and in the operating theatre treated me with kindness and courtesy that were comforting and reassuring. I am truly grateful for the excellent treatment I received.
Mr Manuchehri asked me to write to you about my experience of the cataract operation to allay any fears others may experience. The operation was amazing & although I was fully awake I felt nothing. I am delighted that I can read small print already & am happy to have the second eye treated shortly
Please pass on my grateful thanks to Mr M. I saw him today and we laugh and I am cheeky but it needs saying that I am 100 percent happy with my vision and delighted that he has been able to work miracles for me a number of times now.
My mom has been treated by several Opthalmologists over the years, but I have to say he is a very special person. We feel very blessed that mom is his patient. She has her confidence back and that is priceless. Thanks,
I have been very happy with all that you have done for me. I put my improved vision down to your expertise. I only hope I can find someone as good in the future. Please say thank you to Luisa for her help over the past few years.

A very happy go lucky surgeon always happy to help his patients would highly recommend him to others
I am very glad that I chose Mr Manuchehri and that I decided to have a trifocal lens. It is great for the sport I play, what joy to be able to read a newspaper and restaurant menus without glasses!!
Every element of my experience with the ever-patient and informative Mr Manucheri was faultless. There was always time for questions and explanations and Mr Manucheri’s pleasant demeanor made the whole experience so wonderful. He is clearly a skilled surgeon and (because I am a patient safety advisor) is a proponent for safe and effective care. Many thanks to Luisa in Mr Manucheri’s office for her prompt and pleasant organisation of my two-country trip.
My experience has been totally positive with Mr Manuchehri, his secretary and all the hospital staff. I have another operation to come yet and am confident about undergoing it. Everything has been explained to me and my questions answered. I am more than happy with the whole experience. Thank you to all concerned!
Thank you! I haven't been so well since I was 12 years old. Wow!

Thank you so much for the gift you have given me if good sight and a thanks to Luisa for always being on the end of the phone. Also, I thank my Angels for wonderful Doctors like you.
I am so grateful for your brilliant skill and expertise in restoring normal vision to my right eye. Please accept a very small token of my huge gratitude.
We really appreciate your care and kindness. It makes a world of difference to us to have you looking after mum's eyes. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Many thanks for all your time, support and professional care this year. You always took the time to talk it through with us and made us feel relaxed and reassured in the difficult situation being faced. We are blessed to have been under your care and thank you.
This is just a little note to say a big 'THANK YOU' to you and Luisa for your good care over the years. I had an appointment at Stoke Mandeville which resulted in injection in both eyes in future I will be going to Amersham, I know that you understand its only financial I still love you both!!
