    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    I've been a patient of Prof Hossain for two years, and have just had my second cataract extraction. After my first cataract surgery, my vision deteriorated after a few weeks and Prof did another surgery to correct this. I'm now delighted with the results, and I am without glasses or contact lenses for the first time since childhood. Prof Hossain gives very detailed explanations, he is polite and friendly and I have the utmost trust in his knowledge and expertise. I felt very safe and there was no discomfort whatsoever during surgery.
