“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.

    Macular Degeneration Complex Cataract Surgery Intravitreal Injection
    Mr Tariq Ayoub was referred to us in mid September 2020 by my 95 year old Mother-in-Law's optician in Hammersmith as she had advanced cataracts in both eyes. Within 5 days my Mother-in-Law had been thoroughly examined by Dr Ayoub and just 10 days later Mr Ayoub operated to remove the two cataracts, insert mono lenses and give an Avastin injection to halt the Wet Macular Degeneration in one eye. Dr Ayoub was very clear, informative, helpful and sympathetic at all times. He was realistic about the amount of sight improvement to expect and told us about the pros and cons of doing the 2 cataracts during one operation. It is now 5 weeks after the operation and my Mother-in-Law can again clearly see her TV, use her laptop for e-mail and games and read most letters. Thank you again Dr Ayoub.

    My name is Roy Newman, I have had cataract procedures on both eyes within the last three months. Following recommendations from a past work colleague Mr Ayous's clinic. From the very first contact the whole experience was extremely caring and highly professional . Mr Ayoub and his team carried out the procedures on both eyes. Immediately you notice the attention to detail with the caring and reassuring atmosphere. I have no reservation about recommending Mr Tariq Ayoub and his team.
