“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. “

    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.

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.

    I have had cataract procedures on both eyes within the last 3 months. Dr Ayoub and his team display uppermost professionalism in a calm and confident manner. It was very reassuring. The procedure itself is painfree and quicker than I thought it would be probably due the caring and experienced manner of both Mr Ayoub and his staff. The difference in my sight was virtually immediate without any after effects. I have been very very pleased with the whole experience from initial contacts through to completion.

    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!
