  • Procedure: Lens Exchange with MFlex lens implants, March 09. Result: 6/6 N5 unaided : 20/20 sight in both eyes! "What made the London OC my choice for lens exchange surgery is that they provide a totally unique, highly professional and exceptional standard of service. From the minute I arrived for my first consultative appointment to my final post-op visit, my consultant, Mr Sharma and his team, made me feel as though my eyes and the welfare of my sight was just as incredibly important to him as it is to me. When you think about the possibility of not having sight – you can understand why this is the vital ingredient any patient must have, before they can confidently say they want to go ahead and have the surgery they really need.

    The knowledge that Mr Sharma is a consultant surgeon who holds a consultant position in a London teaching Hospital and performs world class ophthalmic operations also gave me the confidence that the London OC look after the welfare of its patients with the latest technologies, bespoke lenses and techniques.

    The staff at the London OC is second to none. They helped me feel relaxed and did not ask any awkward questions. Mr Sharma’s highly professional attitude paired with his down to earth method of relaying his knowledge and sense of humour, made me feel at ease about my decision to consider surgery and gave me the confidence when deciding to go ahead.

    What raises the bar of excellence here is that Mr Sharma made me feel totally at ease at surgery and following the operation. He provided one to one telephone support on the days following the surgery, and examined the status of the completed procedure on a regular basis. He was always available to answer any question, however trivial, and most importantly never made me feel as though they were trivial. That means a lot.

    All in all coming to the London OC has been the best decision I ever made. I have been incredibly fortunate to find such a dedicated consultant surgeon and his team to my disposal. Thank you to all the staff who have looked after me!"

    "We come over from Italy especially to The London Ophthalmology Centre. My son was researching a lot on the internet in the London area, and found the LondonOC website to be the most useful and the most informative with regards to information about the surgeons who practice there and also the services they offer. Also, after initially contacting The London Ophthalmology Centre, we were offered a consultation straight away for the following week, in which we were extremely grateful. I was made to feel very much at ease, felt very trusting towards Mr Sharma and felt very lucky to have found this Ophthalmology Centre. My sight has improved considerably and I still come over every 4-6 weeks for my treatment. We would recommend The London Ophthalmology Centre to anyone seeking Ophthalmic advise and treatment."
