    operation was quick and the doctor talked to me all the way through to explain what was happening. Made it so easy so that i wasn't scared to get the other eye done. Everybody was really nice. Made such a difference to my life and didn't hurt at all.

    Everything went to plan. I was made very welcome by the nurses and the explanations as to what was going to happen .the whole process went well with little discomfort . I now only need glasses for reading . But I have been noticing what seems like a slight blurring in my left eye , I am possibly going to have to go to spec savers and ask them to have a look just to make sure all is OK .

    From the moment I arrived at the hospital, I was cared for extremely well. The waiting room was comfortable, and the ward more so, and all explanations were given in an understandable language. The nurses were professional and businesslike, again explaining everything that was happening. The operation itself was carried out speedily and painlessly, and the results have been amazing.

    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.
