A problem with your eyesight reigns terror, but where to go for help. The NHS appointment was 3 months away. Moorfields Eye Hospital is the obvious route but it is so inconvenient if you live south of the river. So it was with some trepidation that I contacted Mr Sami Habal after finding him on the internet. My concerns were soon set aside as at the first consultation it was clear that in Mr Habal I had found someone who was dedicated to his work and showed absolute professionalism in both his manner and knowledge. A resultant operation carried out by Mr Habal at Kings College Hospital at Denmark Hill revealed his skill as an ophthalmic surgeon as he corrected the faults in my macular. I do not give reviews easily or often but it gives me pleasure in being able to reassure others that in Mr Habal they will find a true professional in whom to put their trust. John H
