“I have been learning how to manage things whilst learning to live with the onset of Parkinson's, and complicated by post Cataract membranes in my eyes. The hospital, and Mr Deshmukh dealt with the problem very quickly, and in a way that demonstrated sympathy to my difficulties, I quickly emerged into a much brighter world, and I can now use camera and iPad again. Thank you “

    Explanation (5/5)
    I have had no vision in my right eye for nearly 50 years so was very concerned as my eyesight deteriorated in my left eye over the last few months due to a developing cataract. This is most severe when driving at night. I have been wearing glasses for about 20 years for distance and reading. Mr Deshmukh recommended an EDOF lens adjusted to correct my astigmatism. The results are simply amazing I can drive at night and read without glasses.

    My name is Brian Gormley and I'm 80 years old and for the first time in 70 years I'm not wearing glasses.  Mr Deshmukh removed the cataracts and inserted trifocular lenses, and the results are spectacular.  My vision is now really good all round, but two things stand out. My night vision is brilliant, and I've got an enhanced sense of perspective, and that it is a constant pleasure.  There is a whole team of people involved, from first contact to discharge, all playing an important part. My thanks to all of them.

    My eyesight has been transformed and I am delighted with the result. A fortnight ago I had a double cataract procedure performed by Mr Rajesh Deshmuk. He gave me very helpful advice and was very clear about the possible risks. We discussed what would give the best results in terms of lens implants and went for two enhanced monofocal and EDOF lenses. I no longer require glasses and both my long and medium distance sight is very good. All in all I am very pleased and can recommend Mr Deshmukh very highly.

    Mr Deshmukh is very professional and helped my Mother feel at ease. My Mother is 95 almost 96 and was struggling with Cataracts in both Eyes. The Op was a great success. Within a short time, my Mother could see again and all in colour. It has given her a new lease of life ! Would recommend Mr Deshmukh.
