I went to Professor Shah twice for consultations regarding keratoconus and also a gritty feeling in my eye.
I found his consultations brief and hurried. In particular when I had the gritty feeling he diagnosed blefaritis and I left with some pamplets however I was given no guidance on how to clean my eyes or how to treat it which given the cost involved I would have expected.
Following my consultation and weighing up the pros and cons I chose to have Lasek as this involved no cutting of the eye. I was rather nervous when I first went for my surgery, but as soon as I was in the theatre with Prof Shah I was made to feel at ease, the surgery went very well with Sunil explaining everything he was doing as it went along, including what noises the machinery will make etc - nothing took me by surprise. The whole procedure took approx 20 minutes. I didn't really expect to be able to see very well after I left the clinic, but I was amazed at what I could see! Following my surgery I had some complications with swollen eye lids and this worried me, but Sunil saw me straight away and put my mind to rest, this was just my body's reaction to the surgery and it cleared up quickly. In the weeks since my surgery I have been amazed at how my eyesight has improved, and after having an eye test at MEI last week was very please to learn that I have no prescription at all in either eye! I was very impressed with everyone at the Midland Eye Institute, right from my initial consultation every member of staff was very professional and explained everything very well. After the surgery the nurses were great at explaining my medication, when to take it and what to do. I cannot recommend both the Lasek procedure or the Midland Eye Institute enough they were truly fantastic!
I found the service and patient care of extremely high quality. Every query was answered and i was supported by the whole team. I was even offered a hand to hold if i was anxious.
The surgery itself was painless and Professor Shah was very good. He talked me through everything he was doing keeping me at ease throughout the operation. I saw him from beginning to end from my first consultation to even now at my post ops.
I was sent away with reassuring post operative instructions and i am now seeing better than i have in 13 years! I was a -4.50 approx prescription before my surgery and had never wanted to wear contact lenses.
Thank you Professor Shah for making it possible for me to walk down the aisle without my glasses on and actually see my husband to be!
A big welcome to The Midland Eyes Institute from all the team at Lasik Eyes Ltd
