“Mr. Horgan has treated me for about 2 years for age-related macular degeneration and central serous retinopathy. I was extremely nervous before my first treatment but Mr. Horgan was very caring and his support staff excellent. He was courteous, relaxed and authoritative and took time to explain things to me in language I could understand. His practice manager, Lorraine, was equally impressive and helpful at all times. I cannot speak too highly of the service received.“

Mr Horgan is very professional and of course an expert in his field. He explained everything in a lot of detail and put my mind to rest. From my initial consultation to the day of surgery, everything was dealt with in a thorough manner. Mr Horgan was very reassuring during the procedure itself which made me feel at ease. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Horgan.

Mr Horgan and the support staff at the New Victoria Hospital dealt with my two cataracts in a professional, timely way that has resulted in me being glasses-free around the house for the first time in 50 years. I had toric replacement lenses fitted, which have reduced both my significant short sightedness and astigmatism, and now I only need glasses for distance (driving, TV, etc.). My operations were quick (about 15 minutes) and painless with a rapid recovery by adhering to the prescribed eye-drop schedule.

Mr Simon Horgan

Thank you for the wonderful feedback! It's always lovely to hear from happy patients!

Mr Horgan was mindful of my concerns over possible complications. He did his best to reassure me whilst being entirely honest. I never felt rushed by him. I feel the outcome is as good as it could be. given my problematic sight. The fact that I can carry out most tasks without glasses, for the first time in my life, is a real bonus. I am yet to get my spectacles for long distance but don't anticipate any issues arising.

I found Mr. Horgan extremely professional. He gave a very full explanation of the procedure and any associated risks. His timekeeping was prompt and the secretarial help he employs is pleasant, very efficient and accessible. He is also very empathetic and bent over backwards to help with an unrelated area which might have affected my procedure. The procedure was painless and easier than I had anticipated and was 100% successful. I cannot recommend Mr. Horgan too highly.
