I recently decided to have my reading vision corrected having had laser 10 years ago to correct my short sightedness and was advised that I would need Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses at my first appointment I was more than a little worried and really not sure whether to go ahead as it sounded like a very intrusive operation My next appointment with my consultant Mr Mfazo Hove certainly put my mind at rest he explained everything that could go wrong but also how it could be corrected he instilled so much confidence in me. Mr Hove gave me his mobile number if I had any further questions. I had total confidence in my Surgeon and booked the procedure straight away. I did have a couple of further questions and did text Mr Hove who rang me back straight away on both occasions. The procedure went like a dream I could read on the same evening it was amazing so much so that I went out with a friend that very night and showed off my new skills of reading with no glasses. She was so impressed she has now booked to see Mr Hove to discuss what he can do for her. The procedure was totally pain free nor did any pain come later when all the anaesthetic had worn off. On day two I could read, drive and go back to my normal everyday things. I cannot recommend highly enough this incredible surgeon who apart from doing the procedure brilliantly it was his bedside manner that won me over. It has been a week now since my procedure and I am so glad I had it done

I had Phakic ICL surgery with Mr Hove in November 2017. As my prescription was -12/2.5D cyl I had limited expectations when I met him, expecting to get a 'sorry but you're not suitable'. Instead, I got a 'yes' which I don't think I ever really believed until surgery day - I kept expecting a call telling me that the figures had been reviewed and it was not possible. Obviously that didn't happen I am thrilled to say and the operation was a huge success. Mr Hove was amazing from the first meeting to the end. He was very realistic about the chance that with my prescription we may need to have a follow up laser treatment, and made sure I was clear on the risks (as it stands at the moment my vision is how basically 20/20 so no follow up treatment is needed). I felt very comfortable with him and confident in his abilities, as he was so thorough in his discussions on the whole procedure, and made sure that I fully understood all implications. The surgery itself went without a hitch. My left eye op went very smoothly and vision was already really clear by the next day. The right eye op took a little longer, so there was a bit more trauma to the eye, but even with that it felt pretty much normal and with good vision a couple of days later. I would stress that the ops didn't hurt at all, and I actually had no pain during recovery - only one of the drops you have to take daily really caused any discomfort and that was only the first couple of days. After each surgery Mr Hove talked me through what had happened, anything I needed to be aware of, and was really clear on what I could expect, so I knew not to panic or worry if I had blurriness or anything. He also gave me his personal mobile so that I could text him if I had any worries. Not only this, but he was active behind the scenes, checking in with my opticians after the surgeries to make sure all was progressing well, and calling me a few days later just to check in. I would say this is above and beyond what I would have expected from a surgeon, and it made me feel that I could contact him if I had any concerns at all. My rating of 5/5 reflects not only the surgery which was first rate and has been hugely successful, but the attention before and afterwards and the manner in which Mr Hove dealt with me. I could not be happier with how the whole process went in regard to my dealings with him, and I don't think I will ever stop being grateful to him for giving me the gift of sight without glasses or contacts. If you have a high prescription don't give up. There are amazing surgeons out there, like Mr Hove, who can treat you. And if you are thinking of having the surgery, then you could not do better than with Mr Hove

Hi, My name is Alan and I live in Deanston, not far from Stirling. I had lens replacement surgery in both eyes during August. I have waited till now to write a review as I wanted to have the "all clear" from my follow up appointments and have now been discharged. Mr Hove was very professional and talked me through the procedure in great detail some days prior to the surgery. I was nervous about having the surgery but Mr Hove was able to reassure me. I had both eyes done on consecutive days and I can honestly say that my experience was excellent. Mr Hove took the time to again explain what was going to happen and talked me through the procedure throughout the surgery. His confidence and professional approach were very much appreciated and I would recommend Mr Hove if you are considering eye surgery.

I visited Mr Hove for a consultation for Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses and was very nervous and wondering if I was doing the right thing, but from the minute I walked in Mr Hove put me at ease and explained everything in detail. On the day of the procedure he went through things again. I cannot thank Mr Hove and his staff for the excellent care given to me throughout including excellent aftercare. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Hove as he is very professional but at the same time down to earth. It has been 3 weeks since my procedure and I am very pleased with my near and distance vision and no more glasses. Thank you

Mr Mfazo Hove

I'm glad that you are happy with the care from me and the team.

I would have no hesitation recommending Mr Hove for eye surgery, he is very professional and has a manner which puts you at ease.....However ,do not use his services through Optical Express.....their Admin departm ent is awful ....I so nearly cancelled the surgery due to their incompetence beforehand and I just turned up for my first weeks check after surgery Ten minutes early and had to leave after waiting 40 minutes without being seen.Once they have your money (over £6000 in my case)they really don’t care.STEER CLEAR of OPTICAL EXPRESS

Mr Mfazo Hove

I'm sorry you have been let down by Optical Express's customer service. I give all my patients my personal number to contact me directly with any problems post-op to prevent things like this happening.I'm surprised to not have heard from you. Please get in touch. On a more serious note clinics often run late (both my NHS and my private practice often don't run to time but I let the patients know I'm running late), but I'm concerned that you left without having you 1 week check. This check is to ensure your eyes are recovering well and that your pressures are well controlled. Please get in touch with me and I will arrange another appointment or see you myself. Don't let your frustrations with Optical Express potentially damage your vision by not being seen. Eyesight is for life and is precious.

After attending Optical Express at Canterbury I was deemed suitable for refractive lens exchange with multi focal lenses. The surgery was to be carried out by Dr Hove who called me at a pre-arranged time prior to the operation to explain the procedure and risks. He was very reassuring making it clear to me that my well being was his first and constant care. His excellent surgical skills are indeed matched with his patient care. The surgery was a complete success and pain free. Dr Hove and all his team were absolutely terrific their care for me with their reassuring manner and comments every step of the way. I am now glasses free with 20/20 vision. I cannot thank Dr Hove in particular, and his staff in general, enough for their excellent care of me. The follow up treatment with Optical Express is also first class and included a surprise call from Dr Hove stating how pleased he was for me, at the success of the operation after he had reviewed my seven day post op check up. Dr Hove gave me back 20/20 vision and I am delighted to give Dr Hove and his team ten out of ten. From my first appointment at Canterbury to post operation four weeks later I could not be more pleased. Charles McAllister Kent

I have just had 'Refractive Lens Exchange with Multi Focal Lenses', 2 weeks ago in Nottingham. This was a painless, carried out by professional staff that made me feel comfortable and secure throughout each phase of the procedure. I had both eyes done one after the other on consecutive days. Long distance- My sight was perfect before and after it has returned to nearly the same, one eye is slightly better than the other. Middle distance- (2m -3m) was perfect before and has decreased in both eyes and is now slightly blurred. Reading Distance- previously I needed reading glasses to use my phone or the computer, I've now reduced the font on my phoneand am now typing his review without glasses!!!! The after care is fabulous and at the end of 6 months if they feel they can improve the long distance vision further then they offer laser treatment free. I would highly recommend this treatment and especially my surgeon who carried out my operation Mr Mfazo Hove MBChB MD FRCOphth CertLRS Consultant Ophthalmologist Regards Ralph Stockley

Konstantinos Theodorakakos.I had a refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses by Mr Mfazo Hove,and i am very very happy!! Before surgery i had about -8 Myopia about +2.5 Presvyopia plus astigmatism and now i have better than 20/20 vision and very good reading vision.I explained to Mr Mfazo that i wanted very good vision in all fields and he tried his best to meet my needs.He explained me everything about the risks of every diferent type of lenses,we decided to do multifocal even if the risks should be a bit more than monofocal and everything went fine!Thank you Mr Mfazo Hove !!!

Mr Mfazo Hove

Dear Kostas. Im very pleased that you are happy with your vision with the multifocal lenses I recommended. For the record- multifocal lenses give good distance and near vision and not perfect vision at everything. I still thought they were the best option for you and I'm glad you now agree. Mr Hove

I was extremely nervous about this procedure to say the least. However, everyone involved were wonderful and made me feel confident and more at ease. In fact, now it it done, I really don't know what I was so worried about. Not once did I feel any discomfort. Being someone who is extremely active not having to wear glasses has made life so much easier. I am able to knit, sew, read recipes without the inconvenience of wearing and swapping glasses. I no longer have to suffer the pressure on my my nose as a result of wearing glasses and for someone who suffers badly with sinus this has been the best benefit of all. After 2 weeks the only things i am experiencing which cause a little discomfort at the moment are: a little grittiness i have in the evening ( a feeling I have been wearing contact lenses for too long) and the bright car light when driving at night. I am so pleased that i found the courage to have the multifocal lens implants. ( A massive thank you to Mr Hove and his team for making this a painless and successful experience) Dawn Gregory 24/11/2017 - retired Teacher

The service from initial consultation, to meeting all the staff working in the process was excellent. I cannot recommend the team more highly.

Mr Hove was very attentive. He took the time to explain the surgery in detail with me which made me feel very comfortable with proceeding with the procedure. He also provided very good aftercare ensuring to follow up with me on a regular basis and making himself available to answer any queries that I had during all hours.

I am delighted to be writing this review without my glasses on Hurray!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've got rid of them what an amazing experience not to spend half your life looking for them , the thing for me was when your children want to constantly show you things on there phone and they get so annoyed with you because guess what ? You can't find your glasses !!! Despite having about 10 pairs somewhere !! Where do they vanish to ? They get so annoyed with you and then it becomes a standing joke everywhere you go !! So I took the step to have (NLR) Natural Lens Replacement is where they remove your natural lens and replace it with a new lens ( intraocular Lens) this is amazing technology which has had millions of pounds invested . After doing my research Optical Express was the leading brand for me and I'm so happy with my decision. I made my appointment had a talk with a technician about the procedure I wanted , I then went into another room to talk with a refractive optometrist who did some tests on my eyes, I watched a video on the procedure , I had a couple more appointments for further tests and then made the appointment for the surgery date.people will try and put you off for different reasons but please! don't listen . I can honestly say it's so quick you are in and out within 15 mins its unbelievable you have your eye sedated with different kinds of drops no problems no stinging ,nothing . I had an amazing surgeon,MR Hove what a lovely kind caring man he made you feel like taking a paracetamol was more frightening you felt like you was talking with your best friend so relaxed about the whole thing like he could do it with his eyes closed what's all the fuss !! and he was right,please anybody reading this and your a bit nervous MR HOVE is the man for you google him do your research you won't be disappointed I promise you !! Les and he was right when I look back ,it's all over within 2wks even now 12 days later I can't believe I don't wear glasses any more

I had LASEK in right eye following Natural Lens Replacement in both eyes. My experience under Mr Hove's care was excellent. He explained the actual procedure very well so I knew what to expect . The only negative comment I have is that I was not made fully aware at the time, how my vision might be for several weeks following the procedure. However Mr Hove kept in touch after the procedure to reassure me. Joanna Murphy

I had multi focal lens replacement on 24 November 2017. Mr Hove took a lot of time discussing what procedure would be best for me and answering any questions that I had before and on the procedure days. He wanted me to have realistic expectations. I had every confidence in him on the surgery day and now one week later my sight is really good for driving and reading.

I had Lasik surgery carried out by Dr Hove and could not have been happier with my choice of doctor. He made me feel very comfortable from the first meeting and explained the procedure very thoroughly. He also carefully went through the risks with me and was happy to spend time going through my questions and talking through my concerns. I felt that Dr hove's first priority was my health, not just getting me to sign up, and he carefully discussed the surgery in consideration of my hobbies which may have affected the risks involved, giving me good advice on the right procedure to have done. The surgery itself is very quick and totally painless. Throughout, Dr Hove was explaining what was happening which helped keep me at ease. The only thing that I wasn't warned about was that the machine puts some pressure on the eye when it cuts the flap, nothing painful maybe just a little uncomfortable. When my surgery was complete Dr Hove checked my eyes again and noticed a tiny speck under the flap and he insisted on taking me strait back in to lift the flap and wash it out. I had improved vision instantly, was driven home and went to bed, unfortunately I didn't get to sleep before the numbing drops wore off and my eyes stung quite badly (again nothing serious, think chopping up the world's most vicious onion) for a few hours, but after that I went to sleep. I woke up the next morning with better than 20/20 vision. My eyes were quite dry for the first week or 2 and I struggled to use the computer for extended periods for the first week, but after that using the eye drops prevented most of the irritation. Dr Hove did an excellent job with confidence and care before, during and after the operation. I thoroughly recommend both the procedure and the Surgeon.

Such a caring patient approach - near impossible to find! Mr Hove truly cares about his patients and even out of working hours and on holiday is happy to take a call or answer a text when I needed re-assurance about my GP's advise or when just not feeling well post minor op on my eye. Extremely knowledgable and able to explain complex medical issues in very simple and clear terms. I could not recommend him enough. Thank you Mr Hove!

Mr Hove firstly can I thank you and of course your team for the excellent treatment I received at your Glasgow clinic over 14th and 15th August 2017. I feel that I was treated excellently from the initial consultation in Edinburgh, Shandwick Place, through my initial consultation with yourself face to face in Glasgow, and then the final procedure of multi focal lens replacement. My name is James Harrington Nightingale, I live in Leith, Edinburgh, I am recently retired and I can certainly through my experience recommend Optical Express. Mr Hove you made me feel very comfortable whilst going through what you were going to do and making sure that I knew of any possible problems that may occur and within two days totally glasses free and now six weeks later I am still getting used to not wearing glasses for reading or distance. Thank you once again.

Brilliant experience with Mr Hove who took time to recommend and conduct the Lasik treatment when I requested a second opinion after originally being told I only qualified for Lasek. I have had no issues after 10 days and my eyesight was 20/20 after 24 hours and is still improving now. Thank you.

I couldn't be happier to have finally gotten around to getting this done. I am 46 and chose to have one eye corrected for my distance vision and leave my other eye as it is for close work such as reading and constantly looking at my phone! I know that it sounds weird having only one eye corrected but you adjust to it straight away and it means that I still don't need glasses for reading etc even at my age. I had the lasik idesign and couldn't be happier with it. Dr Hove is a very lovely man, he explains absolutely everything before you make a decision and again when you arrive for your surgery. He makes you feel very at ease and makes absolutely sure that you are happy with your decision. I would definitely recommend Dr Hove to family and friends.

I had iDesign iLasik surgery for the treatment of astigmatism in both eyes at the Southampton clinic. It was somthing I had been considering for a couple of years. Having had a consultation with Dr Hove I felt confident and reassured I was making the right decision. He explained the whole procedure from start to finish making me aware of the risks and the likely outcome, and answered any questions I had fully. On the day of surgery it was very relaxed and Dr Hove showed me all the equipment that he would be using and how it worked during the procedure which I found very helpful and dispelled any nerves I had. The fact I could physically hold the equipment myself and realise nothing would hurt my eyes was totally reassuring. During the procedure Dr Hove talked me through everything that was happening which again was very reassuring. It was so quick and totally painless. I can honestly say this was the best thing I have done and is life changing. No more glasses!!!!! And the outcome was better than expected! I would happily recommend Dr Hove to anyone that is considering eye surgery!

Without Mr Hove my experience of laser eye surgery would have been much more stressful. I was a very nervous patient but Mr Hove helped me feel relaxed and looked after from the first consultation right through to aftercare. He answered all of my questions without rushing me or making me feel silly for asking simple questions. The surgery itself was far lest traumatic than I was expecting. The idea of someone lifting part of my eye back really freaked me out but it was all over fast and without issue. To be honest if I didn't know it was part of the procedure i would never have guessed that was what happens. You truly can't feel or see anything except for flashing lights and you only feel pressure. I did however experience some extreme pain after the surgery (not a normal experience I was just one of the lucky few!) my husband phoned Mr Hove directly and I was asked to come back to see him even though he was due to leave and we were 35 mins away. The pain was easily fixed with extra drops and I was completely pain free after 24hrs. Dr Hove truly does put his patients needs above anything else. The ability to contact him directly 24/7 if I had any concerns and the fact that his aftercare is so thorough really made me feel relaxed and looked after. If I needed any further work or was referring someone else I would 100% recommend Mr Hove
