Having worn glasses since I was 10 years old, and contact lenses since age 16, I have always been self-conscious in my glasses and inconvenienced by the need to always wear glasses or lenses. I have thought about having laser eye surgery for a number of years, with only the fear of the actual surgery stopping me from seriously enquiring about it. The natural fear of whether it would hurt, whether something might go wrong and if it would be right for me was a significant worry. After weighing up the cost of wearing contact lenses for the rest of my life against the cost of surgery along with the many possible benefits that having laser eye surgery could offer me, I decided to book a free consultation with Mr Hamid to find out everything from the experts. Upon meeting Mr Hamid for my first consultation at Optegra Central London hospital, I felt he instantly understood my nervousness and took the time to really explain all about my eye health, the SMILE and LASIK procedures and the risks and benefits of laser eye surgery. With a kind, caring personality and a very calming disposition, I felt I could trust him immediately, which was extremely important in my decision making process. After going through all of the tests and consultation stages, I was told I was an ideal candidate for the SMILE procedure and decided to book my surgery with Mr Hamid. On the day of the surgery, I was extremely anxious. Mr Hamid made me feel at ease, made me laugh and made the whole experience actually quite enjoyable, something I never imagined would be possible! Now 3 months on following my surgery, I am pleased with the results and only wish I had gone ahead many years ago. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Hamid to anyone considering vision correction surgery. Passionate about eye healthcare, Mr Hamid looked after me extremely well and is a true expert in his field. Thank you very much!

I had SMILE laser eye sugary with Dr Hamid at Optegra Harley Street. From consultation through to surgery and discharge the service was excellent at the clinic. Dr Hamid talked through the various eye surgery options in detail and answered all my questions and concerns during the consultation. On the day of the surgery the procedure took about 20-30 minutes and was completed very efficiently by Dr Hamid. Pre surgery and post surgery I was well cared for and had regular check-ups scheduled post surgery with Dr Hamid and his colleagues. Overall 3 months on very satisfied, eye sight is just above 20:20 Many thanks Dr Hamid.

Context: I had LASIK surgery with Mr Hamid in March 2017 at Optegra. My prescription was -4.0 in both eyes and I paid circa £3,000. Procedure: Mr Hamid was up front about what I could expect during and after surgery. The eye measurements from the Optometrists indicated 20/20 vision should be readily achievable. I was rather nervous lying on the operating table staring up at a big laser (I studied Physics at University and used to use such things to cut through metal and brick!). This was where Mr Hamid began to shine. His sense of humour and jokes made me laugh and instantly relax. During the surgical part of the procedure Mr Hamid kept communicating, constantly informing me of what was happening and how long this part of the procedure would be going on for. The procedure was swift, did not feel invasive and I felt safe and in capable hands throughout. After the procedure: Mr Hamid came up to the daycase ward shortly after I left the theatre and looked at my eyes. The nurses had not administered anaesthetic drops and Mr Hamid swiftly corrected this (instant pain relief!). It was at this point I could begin to see the benefits of the surgery (this was 15 minutes after leaving theatre). Results: By 08:00 the following day my vision had superseded 20/20 vision by two levels...20/12...which was confirmed by the Optometrist. I visited Mr Hamid in the week following and he confirmed my result was an outstanding one and the healing process was taking effect. Overall: Feeling particularly nervous prior to the surgery, Mr Hamid was excellent in keeping me calm. Most importantly though, he took myself from a -4.0 prescription to no prescription and he improved my eye sight two levels above 20/20. A month later I visited Yosemite in California and I'll never forget being able to stare up at El Capitan and see details which no one else could distinguish. I can't recommend Mr Hamid enough. He is an excellent doctor who achieves fantastic results. He's also a great chap and I never left a consultation without laughing at least once. Thank you so much Mr Hamid.

I first visited Optegra for advice on my deteriorating eye sight. It soon became apparent to me that I was going to be looked after extremely well. I agreed a date to have both my lenses replaced and have been delighted with the results. Delighted also that all the staff were very calming, helpful, and caring before during and after the operation. I have seen Mr Hamid twice since the operation with a third and final meet planned for March. All very reassuring at every point of the way.

I attended the Open evening where Mr Hamid presented the eye surgery options available at Optegra and was given great confidence that this experience he had and the technology improvements made in this area. The confidence in my decision to have this surgery increased with the thorough and detailed consultation undertaken. My surgery was professional, painless and quick, I have worn glasses and contact lenses nearly all my life and for the 1st time ever seeing brilliantly without either. I was so impressed i brought my mum for cataract removal surgery and again a brilliant service. I cant recommend Mr Hamid highly enough he was highly professional with a very warm manner who i felt, i could trust to take of mine and my mothers eyes.

I have had amazing results through eye surgery with Mr Amid. I had ReLEx SMILE surgery and now have better than 20/20 vision. It is so nice not having to worry about contact lenses! Mr Hamid was very calming during the procedure and I felt no pain at all apart from some mild stinging for the first few hours after the procedure. This discomfort was however no worse than getting sand in my eye and was resolved with use of eye drops. My eyes now feel perfect with no dryness or irritation at all. I would highly recommend Mr Hamid to anyone considering eye surgery.

Nearly four months ago Dr Hamid performed refractive lens exchange on both met eyes. I was obviously nervous about having this procedure, but Dr Hamid and all the staff at Optegra were excellent in explaining the procedure, talking me through the process and what to expect.

I had my vision corrected by Dr. Hamid at Optegra in London and I cannot recommend it more. Dr. Hamid is very experienced surgeon. He took the time to explain the details of the procedure step by step and answer all my questions. His team at Optegra is excellent, everyone has been super professional and helpful throughout, from the first consultation through to aftercare. Surgery is quick and pain-free. I've had zero complications and was able to see immediately afterwards. My vision has been better than 20/20 since day one after surgery. Being a quite active person, getting rid of glasses and contact lenses is life-changing! Thank you so much!

I took a long time to decide whether or not to have LASIK surgery as I had heard so many horror stories but I am so glad I did. Mr Hamid was very helpful in answering my questions and addressing the worries I had. He is clearly passionate and extremely knowledgeable about his field and put me at ease before, during and after the procedure. He talked me through every step as it was happening and the surgery was even more of success than I had expected. The aftercare has been great and follow-up appointments show I have better than 20-20 vision. I have felt in excellent hands throughout the process. I can highly recommend Mr Hamid to anyone considering corrective eye surgery. I really couldn't be happier - and only wished I'd done it sooner.

I have worn glasses since I was a child. I was so short sighted that without glasses or contact lenses everything blurred into vague shapes and colours – I couldn’t even see the largest letters on the wall during my consultation. Every time I had a new prescription I would have to pay extra to have the lenses ‘ground down’ to avoid having to wear ‘bottle bottom’ spectacles (not cheap!) and I had an astigmatism in my right eye too! My consultation was done by the surgeon that performed my operation in an extremely professional manor and every stage of the process was fully explained in words I understood (not ‘doctor speak’) with masses of time for me to ask my own questions. This gave me great confidence in him and I decided to go ahead with the Lens Replacement Procedure on both eyes. I was very nervous, but the whole team were attentive, kind and eager to put me at my ease, one of the nurses even held my hand during the operation, that meant a lot to me. My surgeon, Mr. Hamid, introduced me to every staff member in the operating room (I felt very important!) and fully explained everything he was going to do before, during and after every stage of the operation. After my first eye operation I could hardly believe that I could see the very next morning, and a week later, after my second operation I was on cloud nine when the next morning I could see … properly … out of BOTH eyes! I have 20/20 vision, something I previously had only dreamt of. Optegra, and Mr. Amir Hamid (a miracle worker) have changed my life. I am back working with my horses, running, at the gym and am even learning to swim. The money I have spent on this operation will be repaid within 6 years and the results are PRICELESS.

Having worked in the eye industry for over 10 years I was always going to be that little bit more sceptical going through with any eye surgery. Laser eye surgery was something I had contemplated for a while but just had not had the right feeling about going ahead with it. Mr Hamid is a very well respected surgeon within the industry. After having a consultation with him I felt reassured and at ease, he is approachable and he happily answered my questions. Based upon my prescription and scans we decided that LASIK would be the best option for me. The surgery itself went very quickly, Mr Hamid was engaging throughout the procedure and I felt very relaxed. Straight away after the surgery I could tell my vision was corrected, Mr Hamid checked my eyes himself under the slit lamp afterwards. I felt very cared for by all the clinical team-especially having my hand held through surgery by Suri- one of the nurses. Also Jay and Vicky the Optometrists at Optegra are extremely experienced and throughout in everything that they do. Teresa- Mr Hamid's Patient Liaison is gracious and solicitous. Thank you very much Mr Hamid, I am so happy with my results! The only thing I regret is not doing it sooner. It is truly amazing being able to drive without glasses/contact lenses.

The eyes are one of the main areas of the body where we instinctively want to protect ourselves, so it needs no explanation that when we hand care of them to another person we need full confidence in their ability. When selecting Mr Hamid at the outset, clearly I had no idea of his general expertise but, two perfectly sighted eyes later, I can say with total certainty that no one else could possibly carried out a better job. From the outset his staff, aided by a fully equipped clinic, radiate confidence which transferred itself to me. Anyone considering this type of surgery would be well advised to use the services of Mr Hamid and his team. As I said to him at the time he signed me off with 20/20 vision and in full health, it's a shame I don't have any more than two eyes or I'd definitely be going back.

This has changed my life! I no longer need glasses to read or for distance (TV, driving, golf etc) and the freedom is extremely satisfying. Dr Hamid was excellent, the surgery was fully explained to me and the actual operations were totally relaxed, pain free and no discomfort during or after the surgery. I was able to see clearly with a few hours of the first operation through the eye that had been operated on, equally for the second eye. Dr Hamid is extremely personable and happy to answer any and all questions and I felt extremely comfortable in his hands. I cannot recommend Dr Hamid enough and the surgery is a real life changer. In addition, I wont ever have to have cataract surgery which was quite probable, and hopefully will never need to wear glasses again.

Following a number of consultations elsewhere I never quite got comfortable enough to go through with the surgery. However, after visiting Optegra and speaking with Mr Hamid in particular I was put at ease and decided to proceed. The clinic itself is lovely, all members of staff were exceptionally profession, nice and welcoming. Mr Hamid was fantastic in putting my mind at rest, clearly explaining the process and, ultimately, performed an amazing job with my eyesight. I, fortunately, have had my eyesight restored to beyond 20:20 vision. I would thoroughly recommend Optegra and, in particular, Mr Hamid to anyone looking at laser eye surgery. Especially if, like me, it is something you have considered for some time but not followed through with.

Every interaction with Mr Hamid has been a great, and most importantly, a safe experience; he is affable and honest and I have felt that the advice that he has given me at every step has always been in my interest. In one of my consultations prior to surgery I was advised that my eyes were too dry for surgery at that time and this would need to be corrected before any surgery. The guidance I was given on how to correct my dry eye I was really impressed with because it was a holistic approach that focused not just on a topical treatment but dietary and practical guidance. On the day of my surgery it was clear that I was in the hands of someone who was both confident and skilled at what they were doing and indeed my laser eye surgery went seamlessly. Following my surgery, I had a 'mild' episode and panicked about the surgery and my eyes and Mr Hamid was very reassuring that everything had gone as it should and about the progress of my eyes. 3 months on and I can see everything and after more than 15 years of almost exclusive contact lens use I have comparable vision. If considering laser eye surgery and have the option of Mr Hamid as both your consultant and surgeon, you are in safe hands, I would recommend Mr Hamid without hesitation.

I am very shortsighted and after turning 50 I decided I wanted to dispense with varifocal glasses for reading and distance. I’d seen an advert for Optegra on TV and went for a consultation with Mr Hamid. He was clear about the pros and cons of different procedures (laser and lens replacement), courteous and friendly. He performed the lens replacement on both my eyes with great efficiency. I have to say it is one of the best things I’ve ever done. Only lifelong glasses wearers will understand how liberating it is to wake up in the morning and not have to fumble around for a pair of glasses. The aftercare from Mr Hamid and the Optegra optometrists has been first rate. You certainly get what you pay for.

Mr Hamid performed Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) surgery on my eyes in March 2017. In the weeks before I had extensive tests at the Optegra clinic in central London, during which I met Mr Hamid and was able to have a thorough discussion with him about the Pros & Cons of such surgery. By nature I am cautious and had an extensive list of questions to ask him. He spent considerable time with me, answered all questions thoroughly and clearly, and he was very friendly, approachable, confident and knowledgeable. I felt confident about his ability and professionalism. When I had the surgery on the first eye, the procedure was quick, efficient, exactly as he had outlined, and reassuring. Within hours my vision was improving and the recovery was straightforward. During that first week I was wondering whether it was even necessary to have the second eye operation, because my vision overall was already better. I asked if I could speak to Mr Hamid and he phoned me back quickly to discuss the options at great length. Again, he was very informative, and in fact his advice was to proceed, as the best results are found when both eyes are equal. Accordingly I went ahead with the second procedure, and again it was performed perfectly. I have had two follow-up appointments, and Mr Hamid has seen me on time, professionally, and made me very at ease. I now have better than 20/20 vision, no discomfort, I do not need any glasses and I am truly delighted with the surgery. During my early research, I was told that the best outcomes of RLE are about 70% due to the skill of the surgeon, so it is vital to select your surgeon carefully. I was happy with Mr Hamid's references and experience, and this was reinforced by my subsequent meetings with him and obviously by the excellent outcome of the surgery. After my personal experience I would certainly endorse Mr Hamid.

My experience with Dr Hamid was world class, very proffesional. I could not fault him or the nurses all of which were friendly and helpful. Having a prescription as high as mine (-14 and -15 with astigmatism) ICL was an option for me. I was sceptical of having surgery fearing I would lose my vision completely but I am so glad I was given the opportunity to and made the decision to have the procedure done. The day of the surgery I was nervous going into the operating theatre but Dr Hamid was very calm and collected, which reassured me I was in good hands. I felt a very slight amount of pain and discomfort after the drops had worn off but nothing unbearable, I took some paracetamol and went to sleep. The pain and discomfort subsided after a day or two and it was amazing how much more I could see, waking up in the morning and not having to reach for my milk bottle thick glasses anymore is a blessing. I can not thank this man enough. He has truly changed my life. I would highly recommend Dr Hamid to anyone who needs/wants to and is able to have surgery done. You should not skimp on something as important as your health.

On the day of my op Mr Hamid took the time to make sure that I was completely happy to go ahead which I was and the operation went smoothly. I have seen him several times since for my appointed check ups and would not hesitate to recommend him and his friendly team .

In my opinion Dr Amur Hamid is a very professional & competent surgeon/consultant. He recently operated on both of my eyes, with the end result being better than I had hoped for. He took the time to explain options to me. He put me at ease by talking to me prior to the surgery and has a very pleasant manner. I would have no concerns in recommending him.

It’s now been three weeks since my first eye operation and two weeks since the second. I am just writing a personal note to say a big Thank You to you, Bridget and the rest of the team that took me through the process. Getting me through the ‘Fight or Flight’ reaction of my sub-concious, was a feat in its self, and all down to your relaxed and professional approach. Please pass on my thanks to Bridget and the rest of the team. I wish you well for the future.

Dr Hamid carred out ICL surgery on me. The consultation was really informative, he made sure to answer all my questions and it wasnt rushed at all. Pre surgery he was very reassuring and again happy to answer any questions. It was very unrushed & really helped me feel at ease. Highly recommend!!! Incredibly happy with the results!

The whole procedure of my eye surgery with Dr. Hamid was like a visiting a good old friend! He has great senses of humor and is killing all doubts and fears you can have just with few short words and videos. The surgery time was two or three songs and after that I went out with my brand new eyes. I didn't felt in a hospital or in an operation even for a second. His professionalism is as enjoyable as his company. Thank you once again Doctor Hamid!!! George Kornazov

I underwent a technically successful cataract operation in just one eye with my local NHS hospital in 2014. Unfortunately this has, entirely predictably left me with one eye able to fully focus on objects at all distances, and another fixed at long distance, a situation I found both very uncomfortable, disorientating and depressing. In trying to resolve this situation I have met and consulted with quite a number of surgeons. Some who viewed the eye as a manifestation of a successful surgery and as such disregarded my experience as a patient, others seemed happy to offer me technically easier options that in hindsight I think would have left me in a worse sate. Sadly I only got to meet Mr Hammid after my NHS lens looked pretty well set in the eye, but what set him so far above the other people I consulted with was that he is both hugely patient focused as well as being very scholarly and on top of every line of research. I think he must have talked with me for well over an hour, he is the only consultant I have spoken with who left me feeling unhurried and truly listened too. I think this empathy and understanding is no small part of why Mr Hamid gets such exceptional results for his patients, unless you take the time to find out what a patient expects how can you meet their expectation? Mr Hamid is one of those rare people who has seemed to have developed his medical gifts to match his sensitivity and compassion. We are currently waiting for a lens we both think is suitable to become available, when it does I wouldn't consider asking any one other than Mr Hamid to perform my surgery.

Review of the treatment and aftercare provided by Dr. Amir Hamid. This is written following the experience of John and Marian Gray. Marian has struggled with her eyesight for some years, she found it difficult to read things like menus and relied on reading glasses which she disliked. We saw an article about the Symfony multifocal lens and surfed the net which revealed further information on it and the surgeon Mr. Hamid. Marian saw him in September 2015 and he confirmed that the lens would be suitable, also that Marian was just about legal to drive. Within a month both her eyes had the Symfony lenses installed and her vision at all distances was near to perfect; the glasses were now obsolete . Now a year later on and the glasses are a distant memory. I also was having trouble with my eyesight, in my case my distance vision was only just up to driving standard and I had a cataract in my right eye.. I consulted Mr. Hamid and asked if I could have the Symfony lens in my right eye and achieve the same result as Marian. Mr. Hamid advised me that as in 1996 I had undergone a procedure known as RK the outcome from such an implant could not be certain and that a monofocal with the provision for a piggy back second lens would provide more chance of a good outcome. This procedure did indeed need the second lens and my vision is now improved by several lines on the chart I now need some attention on my left eye and will be consulting with Mr. Hamid shortly. .At no time did we feel under pressure to proceed and all procedure and after care visits were strange to say a not unpleasant experience.

Having worn glasses from four years old and contact lenses from sixteen I decided at 57 to invest in corrective surgery. I was undecided on laser or lens replacement so arranged a consultation with Mr Hamid. After some measurements were taken he explained the choices available to me and the reasons for his recommendation. He gave me options and went through the advantages and disadvantages of each, leading me to decide on RLE with the Symfony Toric lens. The actual lens replacement procedure was painless and very quick, taking less than 15 minutes and within an hour or so was out having dinner in a restaurant. Even through the plastic eye cover I could begin to see that my vision was so much better than before the procedure. I was back at work after the weekend and had no after effects. The second eye was fixed two weeks later with the same outcome and I now have excellent close, medium and distance vision without any other correction. As I spend a lot of time on the PC medium distance is very important and not only is it excellent but I no longer suffer from the dry eyes I was getting with contact lenses. It took a while to get used to waking up in the morning and being able to focus, and swimming in the sea without worrying about contact lenses was another plus. As I wore gas permeable lenses to maximise vision quality with my astigmatism I suffered particularly from dust, and not having to worry about that on a windy day is a big bonus. Mr Hamid always spent time explaining details and never appeared to rush a consultation. I felt relaxed and totally at ease in his care and would thoroughly recommend him and his practice.
