“I found the procedure (YAG Capsulotomy) very straightforward and comfortable and I was at all stages carefully informed by Mr Ayoub as to what to expect. Indeed, the whole session was conducted in a calm, reassuring and professional way. I felt I was very well looked after. I experienced almost immediate improvement in my vision which is continuing. I can now read almost all the credits or subtitles on the tv without glasses and I am now able to read all sections of the newspaper and books with even my old glasses, (prescribed prior to lockdown), which I have not been able to do for many months. It looks as though I might only need reading glasses and shall get new ones asap. So I am really thankful to Mr Ayoub for this treatment, which has been a very positive experience for me, much improving my daily life. “

    I was referred to Mr Ayoub by my Optometrist. I was particularly concerned as my left eye has a blurry spot in my central vision. Although he was fully booked for 2 weeks, his office rang me up (they knew I was worried) as soon as there was a cancellation. When the day came for my consultation with him, he was patient, kind and took the time to explain to me my issue after an OCT scan. Mr Ayoub is re-assuring and a compassionate opthalmologist.

    Before the surgery I was really anxious because of the things I heard, but Mr Tariq Ayoub explained me the whole situation again and while I was in the surgery he was constantly communicating with me and assuring me. Post surgery experience was great as well, I always knew that If there’s any problem help is just one call away. Definitely recommend!!

    He was professional and caring. He explained everything very clearly about my mum’s eye condition . He was patient answering all my questions. He did all his best to treat her infected eye though her eye was weak after failed corneal graft which was done somewhere else. I highly recommend him.

    The thought of any surgery however small or big can be a traumatic experience. I’d been meaning to have laser eye correction for a while however just wasn’t sure how to choose the right clinic or more importantly the right doctor. I was then referred to Mr.Tariq Ayoub by a perfectionist friend who had just had eye surgery done through Mr.Ayoub after meticulously searching for and successfully finding the right surgeon. She couldn’t commend him enough and after meeting Mr.Ayoub I understood why, he was a highly qualified thorough professional from the start to the absolute end. Words cannot describe my experience with him and his clinical team. Mr.Ayoub was both very friendly and professional, he was always extremely thorough and explained everything very well. The aftercare was second to none. Let me just say all the staff at the clinic knew me by name and always greeted me on every occasion. They were always so helpful and kind, it was always in my comfort zone at OCULASE. I cannot express my happiness and freedom I now have after finding the perfect doctor and going ahead with the surgery. I’m so glad I did. Anyone thinking about laser eye surgery I’d say just go for it, you’ll never look back. Thanks to Mr. Tariq Ayoub I now have perfect vision.

    I have seen various eye doctors and surgeons on an NHS and private basis, including world-leading specialists. Dr Ayoub’s service was above all. He explained my eye conditions in a very simple, clear and patient manner which gave me a complete understanding of them and more importantly a peace of mind. He explained the risks and advantages of procedures, allowing me to make informed choices. Despite the pressurised and emergency situation including time constraints, he was very calm, confident and patient with all of my questions. He was not in any rush to get the appointment over with and he carried out the tests with the utmost care. He is the most professional eye doctor I have experience with and I look forward to continuing any treatment with him.
