I had 2 eyes lens replacement (trifocals) with Mr Hove. I’m please with the result. I have given my Numerous reading glasses to charity. Very warm and friendly guy. He was honest and thorough in his explanation of what to expect, the risks and the glare and haloes I’d get. He made me watch a video to explain what he would do which helped me understand. Overall couldn’t rate him any higher. Thanks again. Your rugby tickets are on their way. Enjoy the game

I used to live in London. I now live in Italy. I came back to London for my lens replacement with Mr Hove - excellent from start to finish. He even recommended a lovely hotel (Landmark) which was convenient for both his clinic and the hospital. I am pleased with my vision and I have friends who are now coming to see him. Thank you Mr Hove

My wife had a Bilateral refractive lens exchange with trifocal lenses, carried out by Mfazo, I supported her through the whole process. I decided to have the same procedure & rid myself of the contact lenses & glasses that had restricted my life & sport for over 40 years. My experience was of support, guidance & reassurance every step of the way from Mfazo & his team. The operation on both eyes on the same day was a good experience.Mfazo is a straight-talking brilliant surgeon & undoubtedly "The Best" in the ophthalmology profession. This procedure will change your life for the better.

I had Bilateral Refractive Lens Exchange with Trifocal Lenses with Mr Hove. I found the whole experience painless and quick. I am so happy with the results which are literally life changing! No more glasses and it has made life so much easier. Both eyes done at the same time makes everything so much easier and recovery is just a couple of days! If you are reading this (with your glasses) I think just go for it ... you won’t regret it and Mr Hove is the best!

I had been wearing a combination of glasses and contact lenses from the age of 6 (over 40 years). My prescription had been getting progressively worse and I was finding myself having to wear reading glasses on top of my contact lenses. My prescription was around -10.5 with the added complication of astigmatisms. I was recommended to Mr Hove by no less than 5 of my partners friends who had all recently had lens replacement surgery with him. From the initial meeting all the way through to surgery, Mr Hove could not have been any more accommodating and helpful. He explained exactly what would be involved and at no point was there any pressure to do anything I wasn’t 100% comfortable doing. I decided to go ahead and the procedure I had was Bilateral Refractive Lens Exchange with toric trifocal lenses. It was something I could only have dreamed of a few years ago and the results have been transformational. I can now see perfectly without glasses or contacts and with no issues. He even made the operating theatre a comfortable and fun place to be with his choice of background music! I can not recommend Mr Hove highly enough - it is literally a life changing operation that is over in a matter of minutes!

I am a 23 year old graduate who suffers from severe astigmatism, resulting in me having to wear glasses since the age of 7. An attempt to use contact lenses in my early teens failed, largely because of the severity of my astigmatism. Surgery was a last resort and, therefore, in August 2018 I had a "bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with trifocal lenses" procedure. I was previously refused for a procedure by a well-known provider, but Dr Hove assured me a procedure would be possible. He immediately put me at ease and answered any questions I may have had, even predicting some that I would have. I waited this long to give a review as I felt it was important to see how my eyes had developed after a long period of time. My eyes are still growing stronger and stronger and although my eyes get tired, this does not occur as often as it did at the start. The only issue I have to this point is that my distance-viewing is not as good as it was when I wore glasses. However, having said that, how it is at the moment is better than it was last year. What I would advise anyone undertaking this procedure is to opt for the general anaesthetic option. I did not, as I felt the price to be too steep for me, however the sensation of the procedure whilst awake is not one I would gladly repeat. If I could go back, I would definitely opt for the general anaesthetic option.

I had laser eye surgery with Mr Hove 6 months ago. I could see something almost immediately even though it was blurred and I was clear by the next day. My left eye has some discomfort on the day. I gave him a ring and he told me to go to sleep. I woke up 4 hours later with the pain gone and my vision considerably better. I no longer need my contacts. Best money I have ever spent. Thank you very much Mr Hove for guiding me through the process.

I had refractive lens exchange with trifocals with Mr Hove who put me at ease before and throughout the surgery, he has a very kind and caring nature. It's amazing not to put contact lenses in or wear glasess anymore, I had full vision the day after surgery and was ready to drive within 3 days. I wish I had it done sooner would highly recommend the surgery and Mr. Hove as a surgeon. Thank you for giving me a new lease of life!

Mr Hove is a driven, caring and highly accomplished ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon. I would gladly have him treat my friends and family. He makes surgery look easy, but this is testament to his training at world renowned institutions including Moorfields Eye Hospital. His ability combined with confidence and approachability make him an excellent colleague to work with and someone who I would highly recommend. He takes pride in the quality of his work and always seeks opportunities to train eye surgeons of the future.
