    As a photographer and car driver, my deteriorating eyesight due to cataracts had been causing considerable problems for me for some time. Changes to my prescriptions glasses were no longer helping. I was referred by my optician to Mr Pasu who examined me and explained how the cataracts were impacting upon my vision and the treatment recommended. I subsequently had a cataract removed from my left eye first with a follow up operation to remove the cataract from my right eye two months later. The improvement to my eyesight was quite incredible. I can now see with minimal correction and only use glasses for driving and reading. Colours are now vivid and clear whereas previously they were hazy and largely faded. My world certainly looked different. The operation was carried out by Mr Pasu and his team. A full explanation was given at each stage of the process which was painless and every care given. I was discharged with advice about after care and felt reassured should any problems arise, that Mr Pasu and his team would be available to help. In the event, I had no problems at all and within a very short period following each operation my eyes healed and my vision settled down perfectly. I cannot express my gratitude enough to Mr Pasu and his team for his skill and dedication.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Saruban for over a year and have known him for several years prior to his appointment at East Sussex NHS Hospital. He is an excellent surgeon and I would recommend him unreservedly. His expertise are in cataract surgery and management of retinal disorders as well as general ophthalmic disorders. He is kind, caring and is very much liked by his peers and his patients alike.
