Mr Aziz is brilliant, felt completely comfortable during the procedure and now 24 hours later my vision is perfect. Can't say thank you enough. Mr Aziz is totally professional and I would recommend him to anyone!
Dr Aziz was brilliant. The first time i met him he put me at ease about the procedure and the operation was a complete success. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him and his team at the Optical Express Manchester branch. Thank you guys and keep the hard work.
I had Lasek with Wavefront performed by Mr Aziz at the Optical Express branch in the Trafford Centre in November 2008.As is standard practice at Optical Express I only met Mr Aziz on the day of operation. I couldn't honestly say he was oozing charisma but all that matters to me is how well he does what he does. He answered my questions before hand and performed the surgery with complete professionalism. The results are excellent so I can't think of any reason not to wholly recommend this surgeon. Thank you Mr Aziz and team for doing a good job on my eyes.
I cannot thank Mr. Aziz & his team enough, they made me feel so at ease.They kept me informed throughout the whole process about what was happening.I was surprised at how many other people were there waiting for laser surgery but I was never made to feel like I was on a conveyor belt. Thanks again, you've changed my life:-)
Mr Aziz was fantastic, I was extremely nervous and as well as his experience I chose to have my Surgery completed by Mr Aziz on recommendation, as his patient manner was so fantastic, he put me at ease by chatting all through the procedure, it was over in no time.My results have been fantastic, I was -3.00 in both eyes, it has now been well over a year (I was treated in March 2008)and I still have better than 20/20 vision. Thanks Mr. Aziz.
Mr Aziz was my surgeon at the Leeds branch of Optical Express. I had LASIK with intralase wavefront on 14 January 2012, and I was overall very happy. As is the case at Optical Express, I only met Mr Aziz a few minutes prior to my surgery, but he was both friendly and professional. Throughout the surgery Mr Aziz spoke to me, explaining the procedure, and reassuring me that everything was going well. The process was very fast and straightforward, and with Mr Aziz I felt I was in very safe hands. Afterwards Mr Aziz went through my check and I left feeling very confident in the job he had done. I now have better than 20/20 vision and only very slight problems with glare at night.
The way the Optical Express process works you do not actually meet your surgeon until the day of the operation, so at the time you form your opinion of him you are in a nervous state, well at least I was. On the day of the operation you are prepared by other members of the team before your pre-op consultation with Mr Aziz which takes approximately fifteen minutes. During this time Mr Aziz makes sure you have been fully informed about the procedure and carries out his own final checks. As mentioned, I was fairly nervous at this point but I was reassured by his direct but very polite and calm manner. During the operation the team in the operating room were very friendly and clearly well practiced in their roles. The reassurance I got from the running commentary from the lady assistant made a massive difference to me. Both she and Mr Aziz explained exactly what was happening and what I should be seeing during the process. This gives you the confidence everything is going to plan. Within a very short time both eyes were done. I could not believe how painless it had all been, a visit to the Dental Hygienist causes more stress. Highly recommended.
All went as described great service from al staff
Very good service. Surgeon Mr Waseem Aziz was brilliant. I saw him 20 minutes before the surgery (Birmingham branch). He answered all the questions I had plus I made him aware that I like to as a hobby contact sports, he advised me to change my procedure to Lasek instead of lasik which was cheaper (recovery is slightly longer then lasik and can be painful for the first few hours after surgery but it is worth it. It also means the flap on the iris does not have to be cut and lifted for the laser to do its thing as it is with lasik. This means chance of any violent impact to the eye will not dislodge the flap as a cut was never made). I received the difference in money 28 working days later. I will be going back soon for my 3 months post operation check up. All is great. No contacts or glasses required any more. Do not listen to fake reviews on how things went bad for people and if they did I am sorry but the chances seem very slim. Hope all stays well.
I had surgery done last week and all I can say is Mr Aziz was fantastic. kept my mind at ease during the whole process. There was no pain at all it was very straightforward. He made me laugh during the proceedure too so was not uptight, miserable or uncaring. I am glad I chose Mr Aziz to do my surgery and would recommend him to my friends. infact one of my friends as already booked in for a consultation.
