I have received excellent care/results from Mr. Trikha and would recommend him. My right eye pressure post surgery is substantially lower than at referral and so we are now attempting to go eye drop free - I am very pleased with this outcome. Mr Trikha implanted a Zeiss AT LARA lens/iStent and the procedure went well. My near vision is better than before. He spent a lot of time explaining all the options/risks to me before we decided to go ahead with any treatment. I really appreciate how easy it is to communicate directly with him via email and the formal written follow up that my insurance/GP required.

Thank you immensely for your expertise in performing cataract surgery on my left eye. You and your team did a great job, and showed extreme sensitivity, placing me in a very calm, relaxed manner during the procedure. I look forward to having my right eye done in the future by you and your team.

Mr. Trikha was very friendly, courteous and kind. He was very easy to communicate with via email before the appointment - extremely responsive and communicative. The clinic is lovely, very modern and clean, comfortable with a range of chairs, so much more disability-friendly than the typical Harley St office. Really appreciated that the patient chair in his clinic room could have the arms pulled down as well. Mr. Trikha treated us very well, explained things very clearly, including any drawbacks of different procedures, was very honest about the potential risks of a particular procedure. Overall, he was interested in the medical history and listened carefully, and even set up an appointment with an optometrist colleague during our visit. We were very happy that our GP referred us to Mr. Trikha. Excellent ophthalmologist, very accommodating and he and the clinic is also disability-friendly.

I have been receiving treatment from Mr Trikha for glaucoma for some six months now. During that time he performed a local anaesthetic {trabeculectomy} on my left eye in January and selective laser treatment on my right eye. The progress made to date has been very successful. Mr Trikha has a very pleasant manner and I have been particularly impressed with the thorough information he has passed to my GP on the treatment he has given to date. The star rating is a clear indication of my complete satisfaction with the impressive treatment and service he has given.

Dr Trikha carried out a cataract operation for me in July 2019 - he was absolutely charming to deal with and the procedure went very easily and I felt completely at ease and informed throughout the whole thing. I would thoroughly recommend Mr Trikha for any eye work.

I have no negative thoughts about the treatment I received from Mr Trikha. The information he gave me about treatments was clear and succinct. I felt no pressure from him as to what I should do and was able to chose dates for treatment that suited me. He does not waste time with talking, just gets on with the problem. I will continue to consult him on any further eye matters.

I must say that I am very grateful to Mr Trikha since it is likely that the sight in my remaining eye would have been lost without his intervention. I found Mr Trikha professional polite and extremely thorough I would have given 5 stars but sadly I found the surrounding administrative support somwhat hazy and lacking clarity in setting out the costs which I have born myself in order to save my eye. In one particular instance where apparent inaccurate verbal assurances were gven on the aftercare costs Mr Trikha did kindly meet us half way. That said, my faith in Mr Trikha and his team remains unshaken and I would recommend him to anyone who like myself requires such immediate and professional attention outside the the struggling NHS; and has the means to do so.
