“Mr Robbie Walker is charming, extremely proficient and an excellent eye surgeon. He carefully explained in detail all the specifics of my macular hole eye surgery both pre and post surgery. He took time to explain each step of my recovery programme, which I must say ran like clockwork to the timetable he outlined at the initial consultation. I am delighted with the outcome. “
