“From the beginning consultation that established I needed both eyes operated on to remove the cataracts to the completion of the process all those involved in appointments were extremely helpful and kind and explained everything fully. I decided to have one eye done at a time and on both occasions Tariq Ayoub introduced himself and explained the process which put my fears to rest. His skills were truly amazing as I never felt any pain and it felt like he took me on a trip to the galaxy with the bright lights. I am amazed at the result as I am now able to see a brighter world. I cannot recommend him highly enough. .“

    I have just had my final check-up, 6 months after my laser eye surgery and I have 20:20 vision, I couldn't be happier! I have worn glasses since the age of 9 and hated wearing them. I moved onto contacts but was always conscious of dry eyes and infections from wearing them which is why I opted for laser eye surgery. My whole experience with Dr Tariq Ayoub, from the start of understanding the procedure, right through to all the checkups was amazing, I would highly recommend him. The support via the clinic at AccuVision The Eye Clinic in Fulham was also brilliant, with flexibility on appointments as I travelled into London from Buckinghamshire. The support after the procedure was very considerate and caring. I never felt I was asking a silly question and had a brilliant overall experience. I wish I had done the surgery sooner and I am just so happy with the results!

    Mr Tariq Ayoub

    Thank you very much for your feedback. The joy of 20-20 vision without glasses or contact lens is indeed surreal for someone who has worn them for life. I am glad to have been part of that journey with you. Enjoy your new eyes!
