Life changing surgery, professional and efficient.

16 Mar 2015

I had been considering having corrective eye surgery for some time, having worn glasses and contact lenses since my late teens.
I discussed this in length with both my GP and Optician and they both recommended Moorfield Eye Hospital.

A neighbour had been through the same process and was treated by Mr. Vincenzo Maurino at Moorefields. They were totally satisfied with their results and treatment.

Based on this, I rang the clinic to see if this might be suitable for my prescription. Following the conversation with the clinic who explained the process in detail, an appointment was made to ensure that I was suitable for the procedure.

I was given a thorough examination in the clinic a week later and then spent an hour with Mr.Maurino where he reviewed the results and confirmed that I would benefit from the surgery and that I was an ideal candidate.

Two weeks later I had the surgery and could realise the improvements even being driven home by my husband. I could read signs, car number plates and clocks on buildings by the time we were on the Euston Road!

The next day I was seen by Mr. Maurino for a scheduled check up and everything was fine. The back up and after care from both Mr. Maurinio and his team at the clinic has been first class and I am delighted with my vision four months after the procedure.

My son has since had the same corrective Lasik surgery performed and he is also delighted not to be needing contact lenses or glasses any more.

Needless to say I would thoroughly recommend Mr. Maurino and the lasik surgery to anyone considering this treatment.

01 Dec 2015

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.

01 Dec 2015

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!

01 Dec 2015

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.

01 Dec 2015

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!

Best decision of my life. My high prescription (-11) had remained constant for three years and I decided that I would look into eye surgery. I had worn glasses for 25 years and contacts for 20 years. I had never had an eye operation before and decided to research and choose the best eye surgeon I could find.
My consultation with Mr Maurino was very informative and following conversations with well respected medical professionals in London, who said he was brilliant and that they had even sent their own relatives to him for eye operations, I decided to go ahead. Laser was not suitable, so implantable contact lenses were the best choice for me.
Each eye was operated on a week apart and the operations were well-explained, smooth and straightforward. The results are fantastic – I can now read the smallest line on the chart and so no longer have to wear glasses or contact lenses. I am so happy and so glad I had this operation, and it has absolutely changed and improved my life. Mr Maurino was definitely the best choice and the staff and hospital took great care of me.

Mr Marurino did cataract surgery on both of my eyes and I achieved an excellent result. He was very kind, professional and made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend him to others.

16 Apr 2015

I had been considering eye surgery for a number of years, and had a number of friends and colleagues who had great outcomes from LASIK.
I went for a consultation at first with Optimax in Peterborough who were very good and very informative, but their consultant explained that I should have LASEK because I had thin corneas.

I was initially interested in visiting Moorfields purely for a second opinion. The outcome and recommendation was the same, that LASEK would be a better option for my eyes for the long term, but during the consultation Mr Maurino explained that the procedure they operate is no-touch (including no alcohol) and involved a procedure which sounded lower risk.

In the interest of balance, I have no concerns over the quality of the procedure operated by Optimax, but I found Mr Maurino to be very reassuring and worth the additional cost for a procedure where, particularly as it’s elective, I wanted to avoid any unnecessary risk.

Mr Maurino and his team were very helpful with regards to the procedure, they eye care (drops) after surgery, and answered all of the questions I had.

Today I have just returned from my 3-month follow up. My eyesight is excellent (given that I am not restricted by glasses, it is significantly better than it has been with specs for years). I could comfortably read the 6/4 line on the eye chart – the smallest lettering.

I recommend Mr Maurino and his team.
Many thanks

Just about the best decision I ever took. Dr Maurino made it all very easy and I felt safe at every stage. All stages of the surgery from initial consultation to final check up are run most professionally.
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Maurino and have in fact already done so.

01 Dec 2015

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!
