The procedure of incision and drainage of chalazia was very quick and he was reassuring throughout the surgery. He first explained exactly what the procedure would entail to prepare me which was great to know in advance. My eye has healed very quickly with little bruising. Overall, I’m very impressed.

I had both eyes refractive lens exchange four months ago. Overall very pleased with the result. I no longer need any glasses. I do have some haloes around lights when driving but they aren’t troublesome. Mr Hove was excellent before, during and after. The sedation I had worked well - I remember being in the anaesthetic room and then it was done. A few days later I was driving. Job well done Mr Hove and the team. Thank you for my new eyes.

Doctor Hove worked miracles to keep me on the surgery list as the UK was going into lockdown and I was one of the last patients who had the surgery before the hospital was closed. All precautions were observed and the pre and post care was exceptional. I left the hospital after the surgery with no complications and I had a follow-up from the team later that evening and Doctor Hove checked in with me the following day. One month later I reached out to him as my eye drops were running out and Doctor Hove sent me an additional set which were held up by the post office. He then came to my home and personally delivered the eye drops rather than mail them, so that I would not have to wait and would have what I need. How’s that for service and after care! Full 5 star treatment all the way! It has been 3months since the surgery and I am thrilled with the results as I no longer have to faff with my contacts every morning nor worry if I have enough of a supply or worry about wearing them to long each day etc. I can not recommend Doctor Hove, his team and the surgery enough as it has truly changed my life and he is an amazing and wonderful surgeon. Be assured you are in good hands!

I have had lens replacement surgery and YAG laser procedure with Mr Hove and both have been excellent and in many ways life changing. I used to have 2 pairs of glasses to correct reading vision and distance vision. However, there was a growing 'gap' in vision between the pairs of glasses and that was only ever getting worse. I had looked into lens replacement with one of the common 'high street' chains offering lens replacement surgery. They were very keen on the dual focal lens and it was only my questioning and diligence that uncovered the fact that the dual focal lens would not be right for me. I then engaged with Mr Hove and he discussed at length the differences and the benefits of the Tri focal lens over the dual focal lens. 2 years ago I had the Tri focal lens replacement surgery which was a 100% success and I had every confidence in Mr Hove, his experience, approach and the results prove it. Mr Hove was very clear on the benefits and also the potential side effects - of which I do get hazing around lights and starbursts - However, they do not effect me and 1 month after the surgery I drove across France at night with no real issues. Wind the clock forward 2 years to the present day and I had started to realise that my sight was not quite as clear as it used to be. One text and a conversation with Mr Hove and he was pretty confident he knew the answer. After an eye examination it was confirmed as the slight clouding of the back of the lens capsule and that a YAG procedure would resolve the issues Again, this was a spot on assessment and the quick and painless YAG procedure has restored my vision. I mention this as a life changing procedure. I am heavily dependent on using multiple computer screens as well as speaking to customers or an audience for my job and career. So having to constantly swap pairs of glasses was becoming a real issue and relying on just one pair would impact my ability. Mr Hove has solved that issue by understanding my issues and identifying the tri focal lens as the best way forward

Mr Mfazo Hove

If I could give Dr Hove a million stars, I would! Dr Hove, is by far the most honest Consultant I have ever come across in my life. I went to see Dr Hove for potential cataract surgery which unfortunately was a lot more complicated then I had envisaged. Dr Hove was brutally honest around the complications and not for a second did he try and convince me to go ahead with the procedure with himself. I was refunded the £500 consultation fee and what’s more he let me have all my scans and x-rays to keep without charging me a penny. If all this wasn’t enough, Dr Hove contacted another Surgeon for me to see and arranged an emergency appointment for me. I spent nearly three hours at the private clinic and was not charged a single penny. After seeing you today, it fills me with hope that goodness still prevails and there are people out there who genuinely put the patients interest first. It is of no surprise to me that you have patients from all across the world to come and see you. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and if I or any of my family/friends are in need we know where to come. Thank you Dr Hove for the outstanding service you provide. May God Bless You!

I pride myself on providing good honest care and if I'm not the best person for your problem I will tell you and send you to the correct person to deal with your complaint. Free consultations and really free. Mr Hove and the team.

I had undergone a Bilateral refractive lens exchange with trifocal lenses with Dr Hove on the 5th of March 2020. On reflection it was the best decision I made. My eye sight was very poor before and now I can see perfectly. The procedure went very well and I was well looked after by Dr Hove and his team. He had explained the full procedure well and I felt at ease. After I had left the hospital he was also avaiable to answer any queries I had regarding my recovery. I would strongly recommend meeting with Dr Hove to complete the operation. My advise is you must follow after care instructions to ensure your eyes heal well.

My experience was of support, guidance & reassurance every step of the way from Mfazo & his team.

I had been wearing a combination of glasses and contact lenses from the age of 6 (over 40 years). My prescription had been getting progressively worse and I was finding myself having to wear reading glasses on top of my contact lenses. My prescription was around -10.5 with the added complication of astigmatisms. I was recommended to Mr Hove by no less than 5 of my partners friends who had all recently had lens replacement surgery with him. From the initial meeting all the way through to surgery, Mr Hove could not have been any more accommodating and helpful. He explained exactly what would be involved and at no point was there any pressure to do anything I wasn’t 100% comfortable doing. I decided to go ahead and the procedure I had was Bilateral Refractive Lens Exchange with toric trifocal lenses. It was something I could only have dreamed of a few years ago and the results have been transformational. I can now see perfectly without glasses or contacts and with no issues. He even made the operating theatre a comfortable and fun place to be with his choice of background music! I can not recommend Mr Hove highly enough - it is literally a life changing operation that is over in a matter of minutes!

I am a 23 year old graduate who suffers from severe astigmatism, resulting in me having to wear glasses since the age of 7. An attempt to use contact lenses in my early teens failed, largely because of the severity of my astigmatism. Surgery was a last resort and, therefore, in August 2018 I had a "bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with trifocal lenses" procedure. I was previously refused for a procedure by a well-known provider, but Dr Hove assured me a procedure would be possible. He immediately put me at ease and answered any questions I may have had, even predicting some that I would have. I waited this long to give a review as I felt it was important to see how my eyes had developed after a long period of time. My eyes are still growing stronger and stronger and although my eyes get tired, this does not occur as often as it did at the start. The only issue I have to this point is that my distance-viewing is not as good as it was when I wore glasses. However, having said that, how it is at the moment is better than it was last year. What I would advise anyone undertaking this procedure is to opt for the general anaesthetic option. I did not, as I felt the price to be too steep for me, however the sensation of the procedure whilst awake is not one I would gladly repeat. If I could go back, I would definitely opt for the general anaesthetic option.

I had laser eye surgery with Mr Hove 6 months ago. I could see something almost immediately even though it was blurred and I was clear by the next day. My left eye has some discomfort on the day. I gave him a ring and he told me to go to sleep. I woke up 4 hours later with the pain gone and my vision considerably better. I no longer need my contacts. Best money I have ever spent.

The clinic at London Medical was clean and very efficient. I spent 45 mins with him answering all my questions. surgery at the welling was all very straightforward. It took 20mins to have both eyes. i found the music comforting. It has been nothing short of a miracle. I haven't used my glasses since. i can see very clearly.

I had refractive lens replacement (both eyes on the same day) all most 9 months ago. The clinic appointment at London medical was very thorough. I was squeamish watching the video of the operation so Mr Hove insisted I have sedation (which really helped- I don’t remember anything after being in the anaesthetic room). After the operation my left eye was completely clear but my right eye didn’t see so well for distance. I ended up -1 in this eye (I had been -8) but it was still disappointing that it wasn’t clear like my left eye. 4 months later I had a piggyback lens inserted on top of the original lens. This has made the right eye clearer than the left! I can still see to read and now have clear distance vision in both eyes. Throughout the process Mr Hove has been fantastic. He has guided me through the consultation, the first recovery, all the tests before the second operation and now I have amazing vision. He answered my messages, called me back and was very transparent about everything. He really was the John Lewis experience that he strives to achieve. Nothing was ever a problem. I have recommended 3 of my friends, two of whom have already had their eyes done. I am forever grateful.

I chose Mr Hove as he operated on 3 of my friends. They are all loving their new eyes. I had bilateral lens replacement with Trifocal lenses in December 2019. I now no longer need glasses for anything and I’m over the moon. The consultation was at London Medical on Marylebone high street. Numerous tests were done and Mr Hove was able to confirm that before my Laser eye surgery 11 years ago I was long sighted (I couldn’t remember). The consultation was thorough. He showed me a video of the operation which helped me understand the risks involved. I then confirmed I wanted to proceed 10 days later. The operation at the Wellington was smooth sailing. I had sedation and both my eyes were done in no time at all. My partner and I enjoyed the meal and I was on my way home 2.5 hours after I arrived. I highly recommend Mr Hove. He gave me his mobile number, called me the next day, and always answered an questions of mine promptly. His secretary Lavinia was also very helpful and knowledgeable.

Mr Hove clearly explained the initial consultation procedure and an appoint for this was arranged with a member of his staff. Throughout the consultation, which included a comprehensive check of my eyes, Mr Hove was precise and transparent about the lens exchange procedure , and asked me to watch a short film of the procedure. The positive and negative risks were explained and I was in no way pressurised. Once I had made the decision to undergo a Bilateral simultaneous phacoemulsification with trifocal lenses, an appointment was made ,to suit me, at the Wellington Hospital. Throughout the procedure Mr Hove was clear and comforting in his manner, the procedure was quick and pain free . A call was made to me the following day by Mr Hove to check that I was okay and he gave me his number and email address if I had any questions. A post procedure appointment was made for me to check that all was well, again Mr Hove was comprehensive in his checks. Overall, the customer service I received was outstanding , I knew that I could call Mr Hove at anytime, he was highly professional in his dealings with me and I was extremely confident in the procedure. I wouldn’t have undertaken a lens exchange if it hadn’t been for Mr Hove and I throughly recommend him. Thank you.

Mr H operated on me in June 2018. He answered bluntly with honest and open answers, which I needed. He explained the procedure and likely complications that I might experience. So I was well informed and knew the risks before I made my decision A massive step for me as I went 50 years before I decided to have this surgery. Wearing spectacles and contact lenses since I was 13, I didn't take this lightly. When Mr Hove operated on me he had completed the same procedure on around 5000 patients, most of who had positive reviews. I had asked for multifocal lens, as I was wearing varifocal glasses and still was having difficulty with close work. The surgery itself was fast and efficient. Over in just over 20 minutes. Mr Hove has since moved to his own practice, but still answered my texts, usually within the same day of me sending them. This was even after he left the organisation I had used to manage the procedure. For me, I have a distance vision and a close vision that I could only get with varifocals, but better as I can see much more detail. No more removing my varifocal spectacles to try and improve my close detailled work. Driving without glasses. Great. Middle distance, like PC and VDU work is the only area that I have slight difficulty with, so ensure that I have the text 15% larger. This has transformed my life. No more specs! Highly recommend Mr Hove.

I can honestly say that I feel I have been given a new lease of life following my operation where I am both glasses free and have what feels like perfect vision something I have not had for over 60 years. During the whole experience I felt fully informed, comfortable and very well cared for with open access to Mr Hove prior, during and after my surgery where all of my questions were answered fully and clear explanations of procedures, risks and benefits were provided. At all times I felt that I was always in charge of what decisions I could make and that I could change my mind should I wish to at any time. I feel grateful that Mr Hove was my surgeon as he is not only very highly skilled but also has acted with integrity, honesty and authenticity throughout this whole experience. I feel I have been in completely safe hands and have felt fully supported at all times.

I needed to have cataract surgery in both eyes (bilateral simultaneous phacoemulsification with monofocal lenses), and looked for a surgeon with a good track record. I found several surgeons through an internet search. Mr Hove was the only one who called me immediately to offer his services. The initial consultation was detailed and thorough. The surgery itself was quick - about a half-hour in total and I was able to go home after an hour. However, the day after surgery I was concerned that one eye seemed to have a “fog” over the vision. After a further day, I was still anxious and rang Mr Hove who was happy to see me at the Western Eye Hospital. He examined the eye and reassured me that it was fine, and that sometimes one eye recovers from surgery more slowly than the other. The”fog” was due to the new lens accumulating water vapour and this eventually disappeared. I was delighted with the outcome of the surgery. Mr Hove is extremely capable, cheerful and at all times professional. I would recommend him without reservation.

Cannot give this fabulous surgeon, Mr Hove enough stars!! Anyone who is hesitant or even thinking about having eye surgery (I had lens replacement surgery) you definitely need this man to do your surgery! Absolutely thorough from the start of my first consultation to the day of surgery!! I was quite anxious, but Mr Hove gave me the faith and I would have him operate on any of my family members if and when they need it. Top guy and so personable, plus I liked his choice of music in theatre! 😎

I was interested in laser eye surgery and a friend of mine recommended Mr Mfazo Hove. She was so thrilled with the whole experience with Mr Mfazo Hove that she recommended the treatment to her friend & then myself. The whole experience was totally professional it worked so well for me & I haven't looked back since. Mr Mfazo Hove was an amazing surgeon and the after-care was second to none. Thank you, Mr Mfazo Hove, for making the whole experience worthwhile, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

Over the years my eye sight has been getting worse gradually, my wife had her operation with Mr Hove about 2 years ago and she felt so much better immediately and no concerns, So I made an appointment with Mr Hove to discuss my concerns and Mr Hove explained to me that I should have a slightly different operation due to my needs, Mr Hove said I should have the Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with tri-focal lenses, which he explained at length what these are and how it would benefit me. Mr Hove explained at all the time making sure that I was clear in every step he was there for me prior and post operation at the end of the phone, I can honestly say that he is one of the most concerned about your health and careful about how you are at every stage of the op. I would definitely would promote his services.

Hi there.I would just like to say a few things about the procedure I had with mr hove.. I have been wearing glasses since I was a child I’m 47 years young now and I’m in the construction industry I was fed up with wearing glasses and also the speed my eyes were deteriorating.. I booked an appointment with dr hove which I checked and carefully chosen him.From the minute I met mr hove he made me fill completely comfortable.I told him about my vision and he explained in detail exactly what I should expect from the procedure what suited me BILATERAL SIMULTANEOUS REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE WITH TRIFOCAL LENSES a bit of a mouthful I know....... Anyway I booked to have my procedure. Done from the moment I walked in everybody who was involved made me fill at ease which was so reassuring and knocked the edge off of things ( this is your eyes we are taking about here) mr hove is a very special guy and as the procedure was taking place was talking me through the whole time 15-20minutes what was going on .... after the op maybe 2-3hours my vision was better already a little bit gritty in the eyes but that’s what the drops are for...It’s been 6months now and I have been given a new lease of life .bit extreme I no but it’s the only thing I can explain... vision colours. It’s like a breath of fresh air.......... I’m so pleased I opted for this And wish I had it done years ago.... but if I did I wouldn’t of had the chance to meet this guy mr hove Thank you for giving me a me lease of life mr hove your a incredible human being.

I recently had a cataract removed, the procedure is Phacoemulsification with a monofocal lens. I was very nervous about the procedure until I arrived at the hospital where I was met by very calm and professional staff. Mr Hove came to see me and once again applied his calm reassuring manner putting me more at ease. The operation and aftercare were exceptional and I would not hesitate to consult Mr Hove again should the need arise.

My biggest concern when driving at night was dealing with the glare and halos. So I knew that the time had come to have my cataracts removed which I’d been putting off solely because of my queasiness with all things relating to ophthalmology. It is now six weeks since I had cataract surgery on my left eye and I have just had my post op check-up. I told the surgeon that I am utterly delighted with the result but was experiencing a slight physical feeling of a scratch on my eye. He explained the reason for this (a tiny nerve in my eye had been cut) and reassured me that the sensation would fade within two months of having the operation. Everything I see now is visually amazing – from colours to contract. I am going to have the other eye done asap – hopefully within the next two months. Mr Hove is an informative, highly accomplished surgeon.

Mr Hove provided a professional and quick service as an ophthalmologist. He was delicate, respectful and precise during the procedure in which made me feel relaxed. He was also very attentive during my recovery period by checking on me promptly. I strongly recommend his services.

Mr Hove is a driven, caring and highly accomplished ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon. I would gladly have him treat my friends and family. He makes surgery look easy, but this is testament to his training at world renowned institutions including Moorfields Eye Hospital. His ability combined with confidence and approachability make him an excellent colleague to work with and someone who I would highly recommend. He takes pride in the quality of his work and always seeks opportunities to train eye surgeons of the future.
