    I saw Mr Anandan four years ago for both my lenses to be replaced due to the start of cataracts, and other underlying complications, including glaucoma. Even now, I still wake up every morning without having to reach for a pair of glasses, I enjoy sport, gym, holidays, swimming etc all with fantastic eyesight, this has just been life changing for me. I can't recommend Mr Anandan highly enough. His precise and authoritative manner instils confidence and this is fully supported by the fabulous results that he has given me. Thank you very much!!

    At the age of 70 I discovered that I required cataract surgery on both eyes. Although I was extremely apprehensive my fears were soon dispelled after my initial consultation with Mr Anandan. Both lens replacements were completed successfully within a span of about 4 weeks and I now have excellent vision for the first time in many years. My experience throughout has been extremely positive and I can only express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the excellent treatment afforded by Mr Anandan and his superb team.

    I was amazed and impressed by the skill with which Mr Anandan performed the cataract operations. Each lasted about 25 mins and all I could see was a bright blue light with little sensation of the procedure. Mr Anandan and his team explained everything as we went along from arrival in the hospital to departure about 90minutes later. I was very pleased there were no complications and hardly any irritations during recovery. As well as personally carrying out the surgery, Mr Anandan provided helpful consultation from the original examinations to the post op tests. He also told me about his experience and research in several hospitals and universities, so he is truly a world class specialist.

His confident, matter-of-fact manner on examination, his thorough, yet not over-medicalised, explanations and his overall professionalism made me feel completely reassured and confident to ask him to carry out the required procedure.

    Mr Anandan has recently treated my chronic dry eyes after several years of suffering with the condition. I can honestly say that this treatment has improved my life overall as the condition meant that my work and mood were often impacted. Since receiving treatment I have found it easier to concentrate and my overall well-being has improved. Dry eyes can often sound very minor but it can radically impact life in many ways. It is important to see a specialist like Mr Anandan to get a clear understanding of options and treatment.

    I had a cataract treated by Mr Anandan and I can't recommend him highly enough. My eyesight was not great and I have a complicated history of eye problems so I was really apprehensive about the operation, but it has been a complete success and I am delighted with the result. I hadn't realised just how bad my eyesight had become, but there were many things I found really difficult, and I hadn't driven at night for some years. I feel as though I've got my life back as I can see so much better. As a trained botanical artist I have been unable to paint for the last two years, but I'm now able to work on my commissions again, and the everyday tasks of life are so much easier. Mr Anandan and his team provided superb care so I can't thank them enough.

    In July 2019 after experiencing a rapid deterioration in my left eye vision over the course of a few months I was finally referred to Mr Anandan at the Nuffield Health Derby Hospital. He quickly established that it was due to a cataract and an appointment for surgery was arranged. The evening appointment was convenient and I was shown to my room. The pre-operative care was excellent with one nurse being assigned for me from start to finish. A very small pill was placed under my left eyelid to enlarge my pupil which I did not feel at all. I was visited by both the anaesthetist and Mr Anandan prior to going to surgery, I was nervous but they patiently answered all of my questions. I was led down to the operating theatre and confirmed my details before having the anaesthetic. This was the worst part of the whole procedure for me. I was given drops then a separate injection into the muscles at the back of my eye. It stung but was over in a few seconds. The operation then went ahead. I experienced no pain at all during the procedure. There was a bright light and slight sensation of movement. I could feel liquid flowing over the surface of my eye from time to time. I was not aware of any instruments in my vision at all. I was back in my room twenty minutes after leaving it with an eye patch on. After a nice cup of tea I was given some eye drops and instructions to follow. I was allowed to leave shortly afterwards. The following day I couldn’t believe the improvement in my sight. Crystal clear vision and little discomfort at all. I followed the instructions an applied the drops when needed. My eye has now fully healed and my visual acuity has improved to 6/5 unaided. I had a monofocal standard lens implant and will still require reading glasses but no longer will I have to wear contact lenses. Overall an excellent experience, one I can recommend. I am a 53 year old diabetic and it is inevitable that my right eye will require this at some point in the future. I will not hesitate to contact Mr Anandan again. Thank you

    I recently had bilateral lens replacement surgery which was performed by Mr Anandan. He was recommended to me as the best refractive surgeon to perform the surgery due to my high miopia (-12) and high degree of astigmatism (-5). Having the surgery was the best decision I ever made. After being totally reliant on contact lenses for 30 years I can now see better than I could before with contact lenses. At my final appointment my vision was almost 20/20. Mr Anandan was very professional, calm and reassuring throughout and the procedure was painless and straightforward. I cannot thank him and his team highly enough and would recommend to anyone considering lens replacement with a complex prescription.

    As a VERY nervous lady regarding people touching, or going near my eyes, Mr Anandan completely put me at my ease from the very beginning, explaining exactly how and what would happen in such a calm and efficient manner. His anesthetist and staff were exactly the same, so competent and reassuring I felt completely at ease. On the day of my first surgery I could not believe how nervous I was but how I was left feeling so surprisingly relaxed with the whole experience. My fears were put to rest. Everything happened in a very relaxed and efficient way. The surgery was quick, excellent and skillfully completed with absolutely NO after effects whatsoever and therefore, I was totally relaxed going for the second, which went equally as well. My experience therefore was 10 out of 10 and I have passed on Mr Annandan's name to a couple of friends who, like me, are very nervous. It is lovely to have my sight back to what it was a long time ago and to feel if I had to have anything further done to my eyes I would seek Mr Anandan out.
