Mr Vincenzo Maurino Reviews
Life changing surgery, professional and efficient.
I have recently undergone treatment on both eyes which was carried out by Mr Vincenzo Maurino. This was one of the most important decisions I had to make; I could not have chosen a better consultant. The treatment was a great success; I can now drive again and see colours, my eye sight is truly amazing, I am thrilled. Mr Maurino and his team made me feel totally at ease and comfortable they were very helpful and professional throughout. I am so deeply grateful to Mr Maurino for giving me back my “sight” – which has changed my life. I would recommend Mr Maurino to anyone thinking of having this done. He is the best.
One day in my office I had an awful headache, took my glasses off and rubbed my head to try and relieve it. When I looked up I could only just make out an outline of our window but I couldn’t see any of our advertising material and I was scared. How much would my sight deteriorate?
I then researched the options and came across Mr Maurino at Moorfields – Thank God I did.
Words cannot possible describe the excellent service, care, understanding of the nerves, sympathy and sheer competence of Mr Maurino and his team. I had clear lens exchange and it was TOTALLY PAIN FREE and not UNPLEASANT at any stage. It took less than 8 MINUTES for each eye and I now have 20/20 vision and don’t need glasses at all.
Please believe me and GO FOR IT NOW Mr Maurino can change your life forever
The reviews pre-surgery were thorough and very professional. Staff were very supportive and patient when explaining the process. After-care was excellent and thorough. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to my friends and family.
I cannot recommend Mr Maurino enough to anyone undergoing optical surgery. The results of my Lasek operation have surpassed all my expectations. The team at Moorfields are exceptionally friendly and professional and I will be suggesting them as the best choice to anyone considering surgery.
Despite a few administrative hiccups, overall my experience has been worth every penny. From the first check-up to the swift surgical procedure and diligent after-care.
Thank you for the gift of sight you have given me! My only wish is that I had done it sooner.
I am really happy about my surgery – my life changed.
Mr Maurino is a really professional doctor and Miss Santos as well.
This was the best decision I’ve made for years! My eyesight is better than 20/20 vision. I’m able to pursue a sporting interest with so much ease.
The initial consultation was very thorough. Mr Maurino consulted other peers on my treatment to give piece of mind and was available on the phone to answer questions. This was invaluable as the time during the first appointment was minimal. The surgery experience was very smooth. Mr Maurino’s team were reassuring and explained clearly what would happen. Mr Maurino again offered to be available on the phone if I had any questions. Overall the results have been fantastic and I would recommend Lasek surgery with Mr Maurino. If there is any constructive advice it would be to give more time in the initial consultation and to reduce waiting times for consultation if possible.
Christopher James Hines
I found the treatment from Mr Maurino and his colleagues very professional but with a friendly, calm approach.
The operation was far easier than I expected and at worse could only be described as a little unpleasant.
I would recommend the service provided by Mr Maurino and team to anyone.
Excellent care and surgeon 5/5.
This procedure has changed my life. Mr Maurino provided excellent care and information. I had a slight infection a few months after the surgery; I was seen straight away and reassured everything was fine.
I would recommend the surgery to anyone who is considering it.
