    Explanation (5/5)
    I have just had an extremely stress-free, calming and professional experience at Nuffield Heath in Derby. My bilateral cataract operation was performed by Mr Maghizh Anandan and his team who were reassuring and kept me at my ease at all times during the procedure. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Anandan to anyone who is considering private eye surgery. You won't regret it.

    My consultation was thorough & I was pleased with the explanation of Mr Anandan's findings and the way ahead. A date was set for my lens replacement (in both eyes) , I had phone calls from the hospital explaining everything & I had time to ask questions. On the day the procedure was very quick (in and out of theatre of 20 mins) with excellent thought and care given my all. Mr Anandan phoned me the following day, a Sunday, to check up on me & explained that I would get an appointment in 4 weeks to check my sight etc. A very, very positive experience - everything was calm & easy - no pain, no needles & I am typing this without my glasses 2 days after surgery!!

    Extremely caring. Very efficient. I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes, performed by Maghizh Anandan. The procedure took no more than 15 minutes each time, was performed using only eye drops to 'numb' the eye. I felt nothing and had no pain at the time or subsequently. The next day my eye was not even bloodshot and I could see clearly for the first time in over 20 years. I cannot speak highly enough of the team and the care and reassurance they gave me. If you are having doubts about doing this, set them aside...15 minutes painless operation time, then clear sight!

    Mr Anandan had been highly recommended by my optician and he did not disappoint. On the day , he came to see me on arrival, which made me feel at ease. The procedure itself was amazing, no discomfort what so ever. I’m so glad that I took his advice and went ahead with Lens implants. This has been life changing for me, just wish I’d done it years ago.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I saw him at The Nuffield hospital and he explained clearly why further laser surgery for me was not suitable,( I had laser surgery in the 1990s) and we agreed that replacement lenses were the best option We discussed several types and we agreed on one that would give me good long and intermediate vision, I was given lots of information about the lenses and also on what to expect after surgery, I also did online research on the lenses and was very happy with everything. The surgery itself is quick, painless and nothing at all to worry about, I was home within three hours of arriving at hospital, no pain just a couple of days of eyes feeling puffy and gritty, even after less than two weeks, long and intermediate vision is excellent it will be six weeks before it settles completely very happy so far

    Mr Anandan was professional but also friendly and took trouble to explain everything that would be included in the process and assured me that there would be no pain or discomfort. I had complete confidence in his expertise and everything proceeded smoothly and exactly as described by Mr Anandan.
