I have recently completed three years of treatment by Mr Anandan apart from a review in a years time. During that time I have had cataracts in both eyes treated and also have had corneal grafts to both eyes. The care and treatment I have received by both Mr Anandan and his team has been exemplary. The improvement in my vision has been extraordinary and such a relief. I would also wish to compliment the Eye Department at The Royal Derby Hospital for their efficiency throughout my period of treatment.

A few weeks later I had a cataract removed from my Left eye. The outcome of both operations has been truly astonishing. I have gone from being very short sighted (5.5 dioptre in my Right eye and 7.0 in my Left eye) to almost perfect distance vision in both eyes and no longer requiring to wear prescription glasses.

I conducted extensive research and took into account personal recommendations prior to my lens replacement surgery. In my opinion Mr Anandan was the only surgeon for me which proved to be the case. Anyone considering this should have total confidence in him. For me this operation has been 100% successful which I can only describe as life changing. I can also state that the procedure, which took approximately 15/20mins caused me no discomfort whatsoever. I can highly commend Mr Anandan for his work.

I had clear lens extraction on each of my eyes undertaken by Mr Anandan. My prescription was extremely poor (-15). I have worn glasses since the age of 5 and contact lenses for over 40 years. Mr Anandan recommended toric lens implants for me. The surgery was straightforward and painless with immediate results. The whole experience has been fantastic and the outcome even better than expected. I undertook an eye test 6 weeks after surgery and I now have 20:20 vision, a life changing outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Anandan, he is highly experienced and has to be one of the best in the country (if not the best).

I have had corneal Lamellar graft done for Keratoconus related high astigmatism in both eyes. Type of graft I had was Deep Anterior Lamellar keratoplasty (DALK). 1st eye has improved to 20/20 with just 1 diopter of astigmatism. I am very pleased with how both of these operations have been carried out by Dr Anandan. I was unaware of how my eyes would be after the operation. But after having the right eye which was operated back in 2012, the vision that has come through is absolutely amazing, giving me vision I could have not dreamt of. I have full faith in Dr Anandan and I do highly recommend him. Thanks again Dr Adandan

Mr Anandan was recommended by a close friend who had excellent treatment in the past. He diagnosed Fuch's Endothelial Dystrophy, needing an Endothelial graft in both eyes. Two weeks ago he operated on the left eye at Derby Royal Hospital. A 30 minute op under local anaesthetic. No pain, no need for painkillers, some slight discomfort. Sight has already much improved. At all times Mr Anandan has been informative, skilled, and all has gone so well. I would be more than happy to recommend him and await the next op on my left eye.
