“I found that wearing glasses over many years had become problematic. As a pilot and motorcyclist I have to wear a helmet and could never find the ideal solution which lens replacement has been. My wife had the same procedure with Mr Rehman some years ago because of cataracts and she has found no issues. The whole experience was efficient and I see the world in a much brighter clearer way than before. If you are hesitating at all please be assured you will be in excellent hands “

    About

    Mr Rehman was appointed as full-time NHS Consultant Eye Surgeon back in 2002 and performs around a thousand surgical procedures a year. He has performed well over twenty thousand surgical procedures during his career. In 2016 Mr Rehman left his NHS Consultant post to focus his time on working with Optegra Eye Healthcare to refine vision correction services on a full-time basis. Between October 2017 to March 2020 Mr Rehman was UK clinical lead for the Cataract and Vision correction services. He is chair of the medical advisory committee at Optegra Eye Hospitals northern regional network and is an amabasaddor consultant to Optegra UK.


    Never one to rest on former achievements, he continues to devote much time and energy towards further innovation with particular emphasis on helping to encourage the adoption of new ideas wherever they have been clearly proven to help improve the lives of his patients. He works tirelessly to identify innovative new developments in macular degeneration, cataract surgery and vision correction technology, bringing major advancements in eye care from around the world.

    Outside his working life, Shafiq spends as much time as possible with his wife, four children and one rather lazy labradoodle and a 'lively' Bichon Frise.

    He has interests in cosmology, evolutionary science and in the history of medical and scientific endeavours.

    Shafiq also remains an avid traveller and hopes one day to circumnavigate the world but probably not until he has hung up his operating gloves!

    EDOF and Trifocal Lens Replacment I had lens replacement surgery at the Yorkshire Eye Hospital in Bradford in March 2020. I had both eyes operated on at the same time with a combination of EDOF and Trifocal lenses, The pre and post surgery care was excellent and the results have been amazing, I was wearing bifocal glasses previously with a 2.0 reading strength. I needed glasses for reading, computer work, driving, pretty much everything and I am now glasses free. I haven't even considered needing them since the surgery. Mr Rehman's consultations were very helpful in identifying the best lens selection for me and the surgery itself was efficient and painless. I very much recommend this procedure and Optegra.

    I would like to thank Mr Shadiq Rahman and his team, For everything they have done for me I had Lens replacement surgery on the 13th of Feb At Bradford I was worried at first because he said as I am a bus driver and I work at night alot I would struggle with multifocal lenses with side effects on halos and night glare.So he will fit Monofocal lenses set for general distance.But may need Off the wall reading glasses On the day of surgery I was relaxed Did left eye took 10 minutes Then did right eye. Was blurred for a few hours So went to bed when I got home Woke up next morning, So clear. I was very surprised that I could read Small print arms length away and close up, I could read my phone text I could read a number plate across the road , I live on a main road as well. I could see clear and sharp. I have been wearing contact lenses for over 30 years, and to go from that to Not having to have any visionary aid is remarkable. I have been for my week after follow up review, with Mr Rahman, and he is very pleased with the outcome.i can see better than 20.20 and I can read without any problems and that just I 1 week Said can take up to 4 to 6 weeks to get the full benefit and if this is just after 1 week I can't imagine what It will be like. So I would definitely recommend Mr Rahman for life changing surgery. Thank you so much

    6th Feb 2020, I had my operation for RLE, on both eyes. I was a bit nervous prior to my op, understandably, but there was really no need, I was in good hands with Mr Rehman in Bradford, I was very well looked after, I didn't feel anything and to have the operation over with in 30 minutes, I don't know why I was worried it was the best descion I have made, I now have 20/20 vision. I would recommend it and Mr Rehman to anyone-go and get it done!

    Both myself and my wife decided to… Both myself and my wife decided to undergo lens replacement treatment aged 58 years old, a little over 12 months ago at the yorkshire optegra eye hospital in bradford/leeds. Under the wonderful and superb guidance of Mr Shafiq Rehman and all of the clinics staff we now lead a normal sightseeing life free of spectacles etc. Yes we had a couple of little niggles after the surgery but nothing major ( my wife suffered with dry eyes for a couple of months treatable with drops supplied within your aftercare plan and i needed a small touch of laser treatment basically to match an old eye with a new artificial lens, again all included in your aftercare plan ). Quite simply Mr Rehman and his superb team won't discharge you until they are happy that you are with your new sight. I have no hesitation in recomending the procedure, the clinic and most of all Mr Rehman and his staff. Many thanks to all,

    Mr Rehman explained the procedure to me and my options. I had lens replacements in both of my eyes at the same time. It took approx 20 mins and I didn’t feel a thing. I felt at ease throughout the procedure and I will be having a follow appointment with him next week. Very happy with the whole experience.
