Moorfields Eye Hosptial Reviews
The care and advice from the team put my mind at ease and the treatment and aftercare was excellent. The results exceeded my expectations and I would recommend the procedure to anyone considering it.
Absolutely brilliant – after wearing glasses for 25 years it’s amazing to now have better than 20/20 vision. Would recommend highly recommend.
I felt in very thoroughly good hands from the outset and, as well as finding Prof. Gartry’s sense of conviction and authority reassuring and comforting, enjoyed a lot talking with him. Both the consultations beforehand and since and the two operations themselves went very smoothly. From my short experience of him I would say that, as well as very obviously knowing his onions, he is an extremely nice man.
My distance vision is extremely good. It has taken quite a bit of time for my reading eye to begin to work well, but that’s a problem with my brain getting the hang of it, nothing to do with the surgery. When I can focus, past the floaters (which are slowly settling down) and the muddle of my brain, the clarity at standard reading distance is excellent. Viewing any small script or other item really close up is problematic.
All the staff at the Cumberledge Wing, both in the waiting area and in the theatre, were, on both occasions, extremely helpful and easy to deal with.
I have (had) worn contact lenses for over 30 years, ending up with a prescription in each eye of around minus 8. I found Professor Gartry and his colleagues to be friendly, welcoming and extremely professional. I had the Lasik treatment twice. The first procedure took my vision to just short of driving standard (which was of itself almost miraculous for me given the minus 8 start) and then a ‘no quibble’ second procedure or ‘fine tune’ took my vision to 20/20. I am very pleased with the results and would recommend Professor Gartry and his team. JP – 7 June 2017
I have recommended Alex to multiple people who have all had similar very positive experiences. Within an hour of having the surgery I could for the first time in my life read the small print on my phone. The surgery was pain free and only took around 5 mins per eye. I was 40 years old at the time of the operation.
One eye which had a high stigmatism had to be done twice, this was within the originial price of the surgery. Once I had 20/20 vision I then had other surgery to straighten a lazy eye. No professional had every suggested that I have laser eye surgery to correct my vision before operating on a lazy eye. Seems the most logical approach.
Alex has really good interpersonal skills, highly professional and I could not recommend him or the operation more highly. It was totally life changing. Thank you.
I should have posted this a long time ago. Professor Gartry gave me the gift of normal vision having worn glasses from the age of two for long sight. I endured years of bullying as glasses were rarely seen on. Girl in the 1960s and as for the Elastoplast patch? I thought laser eye surgery could not be done for me but he proved otherwise. Like Amazing Grace I was of limited near sight for over 40 years, but now I can see.
Excellent result from surgeon Alexander Ionides. Expensive but I reckoned it’s not worth taking risks with my eyesight so chose Moorfields.
Excellent service throughout consultation, assessment, treatment and follow up.
I had laser treatment on one eye only and now have better than 20:20 vision.
The whole experience from consultation to surgery to aftercare has been absolutely faultless. Dr Gartry was recommended by a friend and everything you read here is true. Although Lasek takes slightly longer to recover from, my own experience of it was brilliant and pain free. I now have better than 20/20 vision having started with a complex prescription of -0.8 in both eyes. I would not hesitate in recommending Dr Gartry and his team. Life changin
I cannot thank Dr Tuft enough as an older patient I knew I was in professional hands from the start. Dr Tuft took the time to explain the precodure to me and unlike some patients in the waiting room, I wasn’t one of nine patients waiting to have my procedure done by him! So I knew I was a priority. I had very bad myopia but after a few weeks my vision is fantastic and my follow up appointment went smoothly. Dr Tuft is professional and very underated by this site.
