    The whole process of dealing with Mr Kersey, from my initial enquiries with his very efficient secretary through to cataract surgery on both eyes, filled me full of confidence. Mr Kersey is easy to talk to and he discussed my eyes with me in detail and helped me to decide on appropriate surgery and timings. The post op follow ups were also very efficient.

    Yesterday Mr Kersey performed a YAG laser capsulotomy on both my eyes and this morning my vision is wonderful. The whole procedure took 30 minutes from arrival to leaving and I found Mr Kersey friendly, informative, reassuring and extremely competent. Three years ago he performed cataract surgery on both eyes on the NHS and I had complete confidence in him then which influenced my decision to contact him for this recent treatment.

    I recently had a cataract operation and I am a naturally anxious person when it comes to anything medical. Mr Kersey explained how the procedure would be carried out, what I would experience post operation and how to manage my eye care in future. He was very caring, kind and clearly an expert in his field. Both this and the fact that he understood my anxiousness, made me feel very much at ease during the operation. The operation was successful and its good to have clear vison again. I would also like to thank Suzanne (secretary) who made all the arrangements very efficiently and the team that supported Mr Kersey during the operation were all equally lovely.

    I first met Mr Kersey several years ago, and he has conducted many of my annual reviews. Throughout he has avoided unnecessary surgery until a ppoint was reached where the benefits were substantial. Having elected for surgery and chosen Mr Kersey as my surgeon, I was most impressed with his handling of my case. Throughout he has been highly professional, yet patient and friendly, with explanations laid out in an easily understood format, and with no applied pressure or bias. His Personal Secretary was alert, responsive and very efficient, also earning my respect, and her work was reflected in the seamless handling experienced throughoout the two processes. Mr Kersey's surgical work was painless, expertly performed, and again, throughout, I was kept informed of the progress of the steps being taken, and what I as the patient could expect. Results exceeded my every hope, with 20+ pairs of glasses being binned, and a whole new world of vibrant colour and detail assaulting my senses. I have recommended him to work colleagues and made appointments for family members. Mr Kersey has my complete endorsement, and I am happy to discuss my experience, or any concerns, with any future patient should they wish.
