5 stars, Excellent surgeon, excellent facility. Overall experience was fantastic. A very sleek and professional service all round. Very friendly atmosphere. Would do it again! Will certainly recommend Centre for Sight. Only the best surgeon is good enough for me!

I have been so impressed with the laser eye surgery I received at Centre for Sight in Oxshott. I had worn glasses for 30 years & it is amazing to be able to see without them. Plus my vision is even better than it was with glasses, which I didn\’t expect. I am constantly annoying everyone telling them what I can now see! Plus I must be the only person I know who likes to have their eyes tested! I cannot recommend Centre for Sight highly enough. My mum who kindly paid for it for me has said that it was the best money she has ever spent.

5 stars. Extremely professional service, also very friendly. My distance sight is already brilliant. Excellent staff. The care on the day of the procedures was faultless. I felt no pain or discomfort whatsoever. My daughter had laser treatment at Centre for Sight in 2001 and she had fantastic results, hence I had to come here.

I have been really impressed with the friendliness of the staff. They have explained each step (though I forgot most of it!). My vision is not yet 100% (slight blurring) but still definitely better than before. Can’t fault the treatment I have received. I was recommended to Centre for Sight by my neighbour.

– Tricia Hughes

5 stars. The treatment at Centre for Sight has removed a worry and given me freedom to perform normal activities – for example being able to drive! I had laser surgery some years ago – seemed natural to return when cataract started.

I was referred to Mr. Sheraz Daya at the Centre for Sight to treat scarring of my cornea as a result of the Keratoconus that I had been suffering from for the last 10 years. I had done some initial reading online and based on Mr. Sheraz Daya’s experience and recognition in the field, I decided to book an appointment.

Up until the point I went for my initial check-up at Centre for Sight, I didn’t appreciate how bad my uncorrected vision was; used to putting in contacts first thing in the morning until last thing at night I always considered my eyesight to be perfectly functional. That all changed when, as part of my Centre for Sight tests, I discovered that with uncorrected vision I couldn’t even distinguish my fingers at arm’s length!

It has been few weeks now after my procedure and I’ve returned to work and largely returned to life as normal. I still have a year of recovery ahead of me but already I appreciate how revolutionary the operation has been for me – I am literally seeing the world with new eyes and despite all the aftercare, my operated eye is already proving to be lower-maintenance than before. Now it’s just a case of waiting for the eye to fully recover so that I can get the other one done!

The best thing I’ve ever done and i have to thank Centre for Sight, they were wonderful. Every morning I think this is great, no glasses I can see every thing, and it makes driving so much easier.

– Lauretta Barret

It was a very straightforward. And easy experience. I was very scared but at each step I found space to ask questions and a warm friendly service. I am an artist with an extreme prescription, I am so taken aback at my new vision. From the moment I opened my eyes the day after the procedure, my sight was amazing.
