“I had successful lens exchange surgery at the end of November 2017 having worn glasses for 48 years.
I was nervous about the procedure however the surgeon Mr Deepak Chitkara reassured me that all would be well, he was very professional and informative to both my husband and myself at the consultation stage of the procedure. The surgery was as he explained pain free,
The results were as I hoped, to be free of glasses. The first aftercare appointment demonstrated that I had 20/20 vision and would not even need reading glasses
I couldn’t have wished for a better Christmas present – Thankyou Deepak
In January 2008, I recieved a cornea transplant by Deepak Chitkara. I have never been seen private before but would certainly recommend this surgeon. The service has been wonderful and to this date I am extremely pleased with the progress of my vision, and with regular visits I am always reassured that my graph is on track.I would just like to say a big thanks for restoring my vision and the friendly welcome I always recieve!!
Deepak explained everything in simple plain English whilst also not hiding the possible problems associared with eye surgery. His calm approach exumes confidence you are being looked after by a true proffesional.
I’ve been looked after really well both during surgery and during the year-long aftercare. I’m thrilled with the results of the surgey, and couldn’t ave asked for more from Mr Chitkara, especially in terms of his commitment to getting the end result right.
Extremely pleased with the outcome of my surgery, 100% satisfied and glad I had it. I've recommended Viewpoint to the brother in law so cant say any more than that!
Should gone to see MR Deepak sooner so happy
I decided to go ahead with eye surgery as my sister had recommended Deepak Chitkara after having lens replacement nine years ago.My consultation with Dr Chitkara was excellent, the clinic is first class, total professionalism throughout. I booked to go ahead with Refractive Lens replacement surgery to both eyes. I went into the hospital in the morning and had a local anaesthetic and returned home in the afternoon. I had been apprehensive thinking I might experience a lot of pain but it was just mild discomfort, nothing like I had imagined it would be at all.My vision is now amazing, 20/20 vision to both eyes, the results are way beyond my expectations. I have had a lazy eye since childhood and I was not expecting much to change with this eye but it is now in full working order. I would like to thank Mr Chitkara and his team for the whole experience, the after-care was great and I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Chitkara to family and friends.
I had surgery with boots 4 years ago and my eyes were never perfect. I am a perfectionist and Mr Chitkara was very understanding of this. He was realistic with his expectations, he didn't coerce me with my decision he merely provided me with all the data and factual information I required and allowed me to make my own decision. I only had a slight prescription which I am led to believe is the most difficuly to correct because there is hardly any margin for error. Mr Chitkara took my prescription on several occasions and made sure that both I and himself was comfortable with the measured prescription. He was very patient and reassuring and once I had opted for the surgery he made me feel confident. The surgery lasted a couple of minutes at most, the hygiene standards were phenomenal and his team were well versed. I had absolutely no pain what so ever. I awoke the next day and my vision was no different which I found disappointing. Over the next month I noticed a gradual improvement. It is now 3 months post surgery and I am happy with my eyes. They are now perfect and with my expectations that is a superb result. I would happily recommend Mr Chitkara to any of my friends or family.
Highly recommended - fantastic results - first class clinic with first class consultant!
Very pleased with care receieved and the results of my operation
