Mr Vincenzo Maurino Reviews
Life changing surgery, professional and efficient.
The prep for the surgery was very thorough. The surgery was painless and I felt in control throughout, as the team narrated each step I went through.
The post-op care has been great and I wish had done this decades ago!
Excellent result without any down time or pain.
Just about the best thing I have ever done. I would recommend Mr Maurino to anyone. I am sure if other people knew how easy this was no one would still be wearing glasses.
Dr Sri Thrumurthy
An excellent experience overall. Mr Maurino and his team have provided me with excellent care throughout my time with them, and I am thoroughly grateful for my new vision.
As a surgeon myself, I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Maurino for the LASIK procedure.
Thank you once again!
The operation went perfectly.
Staff were friendly and helpful with an eye for detail and care for the after operation.
I recommend the Smile to anyone, in particular for driving, is the best solution.
I was always looking for any excuse to not wear my glasses or to have to replace them with contact lenses. I finally decided to do the laser operation. After lots of research and careful studies I opted for Mr Maurino as I found him the most qualified and experienced.
I came for an initial consultation, I was very satisfied with the information that was given to me. I was free to ask as many questions as I had – and eventually I decided to do the operation. The operation was very brief, all in all only about 20 minutes, but the actual laser only 15 seconds for one eye and 17 seconds for the other. The after care has been very excellent.
Mr Maurino and his team were always friendly, caring and I found them very genuine who would only look after you in the best possible way.
Thank you all very much for making me see so brightly and naturally!
Mr Maurino and his team are consummate professionals. Lots of information provided before I had even commiteed to the idea of having surgery. I had the Visian ICL procedure and two weeks later have perfect vision. My vision was slightly blurry for a few days after the op, but I was perfectly able to continue operating as normal within a day after the surgery being completed. Very happy with the results.
I have been very impressed with the process from start to finish. The level of scrutiny prior to the laser surgery was very high to ensure I was an appropriate candidate and that the procedure was right for me. The process was explained very clearly and went exactly as I was told. The follow up care was also very good with excellent results at the end. I could not fault the procedure and would definitely recommend it.
Fantastic surgery and great after care.
Thank you so much.
Safe, stress-free and much easier than I thought. Would recommend to anyone!
From the beginning to the end of treatment I have felt well cared for and in good hands. the procedure was very straight forward and painless and I am very grateful to Mr Maurino and his staff for their professionalism and the excellent result!
