The care and support both during and after was second to none. We were really looked after at the clinic.

My eyesight was getting worse and my optician said that I had the beginnigs of cateracts in both eyes. Also I had worn varifocal glasses since I was 45, I am now 71. Mr Sheraz Daya and the Centre for Sight had been recommended to me by several friends including an optician golfing mate. So I took the plunge and went to Centre for Sight at East Grinstead for the very thourough assessment and I was told that I was suitable for multifocal iol’s. I had the procedures at Oxshott with the follow up checks in East Grinstead. The whole process was very straightforward and the most painful part was the small prick when the canula was inserted into my arm. Next day I was able to do away with my glasses and can read the small print. If anybody is procrastinating about going ahead with lens replacement at Centre for Sight I have no hesitation in recommending mr Sheraz Daya and his wonderful team.

I just want to say how awesome it is, I am so happy!!!

After wearing reading glasses from the age of 10 years, followed by Lasik treatment in 2009, I learned from a friend how wonderful total lens replacement surgery is.

Right eye operation 8th June followed by left eye on the 10th June, I can only describe the results as awesome.

My vision has never been so good and gets better and better all of the time.
It makes me feel so good as I see new things much more clearly.

My very special thanks to Mr Sheraz Daya and Ms Marcela Espinosa Lagana. they are both so passionate about there work and how they help me as a patient. I am so pleased. The whole team at The Centre For Sight are such lovely people it is a delight and pleasure to have my treatment there and I feel so relaxed and happy too.

Thank you.

Absolutely amazing… Fantastic… Terrific… cant think of any other words… well I can think of many but Just “BLOWN AWAY”!!! Its the best thing I’ve got.

Words cannot describe how the Implantable Contact Lens Laser eye surgery at Centre for Sight has affected my life… I am blown away and quite tearful over it. I had my eye surgery because I had very poor vision. I used to wear contact lenses and have been wearing them since the age of year 13 and had to revert to wearing glasses.

As well as being terribly short sighted, my near vision was deteriorating and the contact lenses would not accommodate it. After which I was not confident wearing glasses at all.

Centre for Sight is local to me and has great reputation. My experience was fantastic, I am blown away… Amazing!!!

Just might burst into tears. Really Amazing.

Remarkably clear and sharp, I can’t believe it! Now I can exercise & keep fit without the annoying glasses – all thanks to Centre for Sight.

Now that we have finally had some decent summer weather I can wear my sunglasses and not have to think about putting in my contact lenses first. I can’t wait to go scuba diving again and this time actually see the fish and coral clearly!

I am an active person who likes to exercise, dive and ski – not ideally activities for someone you needs glasses.

My husband who is an Ophthalmologist insisted that only Mr Daya would be going near my eyes. He has an international reputation for achieving excellent results and is an innovator in the field of refractive surgery.

The whole team including the reception and nursing to staff made me feel at ease throughout my pre-operative visit as well as the day of the surgery.

I am quite squeamish when it comes to my eyes but Mr Daya took the time to explain the procedure in just the right amount of detail to allay my concerns. The environment was calm and the team was very skilled and organised.

I will be definitely recommending my other doctor colleagues who are considering LASIK to come to Centre For Sight.

There are no words that could possibly describe how much this has changed my life. I feel like I have been given a second chance in life. I am happy.

Thank you to Dr. Sheraz Daya and your amazing team at Centre for Sight for making this possible.

My Refractive Lens Exchange journey at Centre for Sight has been positive. Mr Daya has been very friendly and his one-to-one approach to patients makes a real difference which stands out. This is why I specifically chose Centre for Sight to be treated, as compared to my negative experiences with other private clinics. I highly recommend Centre for Sight.

The process from first enquiry about LASIK through to the surgery itself has been absolutely fantastic. All members at each stage have been courteous and professional taking any feelings of discomfort away immediately. Mr Daya inspired a feeling of absolute self-assurance and confidence and I felt immediately that I was in the hands of a world leader in his field. The results have been phenomenal and I’m looking forward to years of perfect sight.

Why I chose Centre for Sight?
My mother had surgery at Centre for Sight in 2002 and spoke very highly of the organisation. It’s my vision, why risk going anywhere but the best!

To Mr Daya and all the staff I have met at Centre for Sight I want to say thank you!

I was extremely nervous on the day of my surgery but was looked after so well by all the nurses. I have never experienced such genuine care at any medical centre so I am very grateful.

You have changed by life and given me a chance to become a fighter pilot which is all I have ever wanted to do. If I make it I will take you for a flight, if I don’t I guess I could train as an Ophthalmologist !…

Thanks again,

Calum Hervieu
