Hi there.I would just like to say a few things about the procedure I had with mr hove.. I have been wearing glasses since I was a child I’m 47 years young now and I’m in the construction industry I was fed up with wearing glasses and also the speed my eyes were deteriorating.. I booked an appointment with dr hove which I checked and carefully chosen him.From the minute I met mr hove he made me fill completely comfortable.I told him about my vision and he explained in detail exactly what I should expect from the procedure what suited me BILATERAL SIMULTANEOUS REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE WITH TRIFOCAL LENSES a bit of a mouthful I know....... Anyway I booked to have my procedure. Done from the moment I walked in everybody who was involved made me fill at ease which was so reassuring and knocked the edge off of things ( this is your eyes we are taking about here) mr hove is a very special guy and as the procedure was taking place was talking me through the whole time 15-20minutes what was going on .... after the op maybe 2-3hours my vision was better already a little bit gritty in the eyes but that’s what the drops are for...It’s been 6months now and I have been given a new lease of life .bit extreme I no but it’s the only thing I can explain... vision colours. It’s like a breath of fresh air.......... I’m so pleased I opted for this And wish I had it done years ago.... but if I did I wouldn’t of had the chance to meet this guy mr hove Thank you for giving me a me lease of life mr hove your a incredible human being.
Patient seen for:Refractive Surgery / Surgical Solutions
I recently had a cataract removed, the procedure is Phacoemulsification with a monofocal lens. I was very nervous about the procedure until I arrived at the hospital where I was met by very calm and professional staff. Mr Hove came to see me and once again applied his calm reassuring manner putting me more at ease. The operation and aftercare were exceptional and I would not hesitate to consult Mr Hove again should the need arise.
Doctor seems very knowledgeable and is kind and patient. He explained my condition well in lay terms.
My biggest concern when driving at night was dealing with the glare and halos. So I knew that the time had come to have my cataracts removed which I’d been putting off solely because of my queasiness with all things relating to ophthalmology.
It is now six weeks since I had cataract surgery on my left eye and I have just had my post op check-up. I told the surgeon that I am utterly delighted with the result but was experiencing a slight physical feeling of a scratch on my eye. He explained the reason for this (a tiny nerve in my eye had been cut) and reassured me that the sensation would fade within two months of having the operation.
Everything I see now is visually amazing – from colours to contract.
I am going to have the other eye done asap – hopefully within the next two months.
Mr Hove is an informative, highly accomplished surgeon.
I was very impressed and satisfied with Mr HOVES EXPLANATION REGARDING MY CATARACT procedure. FELT reassured regarding the process and for the second cataract to be operated on. Many thanks
Mr Hove provided a professional and quick service as an ophthalmologist. He was delicate, respectful and precise during the procedure in which made me feel relaxed. He was also very attentive during my recovery period by checking on me promptly. I strongly recommend his services.
My experience with Mr Hove has been exceptional. I have a family history of Glaucoma and was referred to him for consultation following a diagnosis of increased fluid pressure inside both my eyes. Following further tests at London Medical, Mr Hove spoke in great detail about the long term effects of my condition and the treatments available should I choose them. I was also wearing glasses for reading and was made aware that cataracts would form in later life. I never felt under any pressure to take any treatment however after doing my research and further discussions with Mr Hove I am delighted to say I opted for Bilateral Simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with Trifocals lenses. The procedure was explained in great detail and the entire process for both eyes was over in 25 minutes. I have now done away with my glasses and I no longer have the threat of cataracts. Most importantly, the hope is that the fluid pressure in my eyes will be reduced because of the new lenses. After 6 weeks I am now on one set of drops per day and the pressure has decreased dramatically.Postoperative treatment has been superb. Mr Hove is kind enough to give his personal contact details to all his patients so that they may speak to him at any time with any concerns.
Needless to say I am delighted with the results and have every confidence in recommending Mr Hove, a true expert in his chosen field.
I was very concerned regarding this operation until I spoke with surgeon Mr Hove he put my mind at ease and operation was over within 20 minutes and only wish I would have had it sooner and the consultations after operation are second to none excellent surgeon in every department / had my both eyes done at same time life without glasses is perfect thank you Mr Hove Had the operation end of February vision is perfect.
I have had refractive lens replacement with multifocal lenses carried out by Mr. Hove and am extremely pleased with no longer having to wear glasses for everyday tasks. It is a delight to be able to read and drive whilst not having to change glasses or struggle to read menus or even check my mobile phone e-mails. I would recommend Mr. Hove to anybody as he explains all possibilities and ensures that any concerns are completely addressed.
Dr Hove & his team have been absolutely amazing!
From first appointment his manner was such that I felt completely at ease and it was obvious that he was a gifted consultant I knew instinctively that he was the right man to trust with my eyes
I had lensreplcement to both eyes 1 week apart - lens was trifocals 2nd was. Standard The op was very successful and completely painless I now have perfect vision in both eyes
In December, I had the Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with trifocal lenses procedure. It isn't an over-statement to describe the op as transforming. I started wearing reading glasses in my 40s and had got to the stage of needing multifocal glasses. I'm an entertainer and it just wasn't working, constantly on/off with glasses... not to mention, losing them, forgetting them, taking the wrong ones with me..! I'd tried contact lenses and they just weren't good enough. I also do a lot of photography, including editing them. Same problems. 3 months on, I don't wear glasses and can't say how delighted I am! It's fantastic! Before the op, Mr Hove explained everything to me, clearly and carefully and made sure I understood. He was happy to answer all my questions. The op was quick and I elected to have sedation - it was great. I recommend Mr Hove and this procedure, wholeheartedly and without reservation
I have just had Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with tri-focal lenses 4 Weeks ago and the thought of the operation was daunting - however the procedure was painless and only took 25mins - its great not to wear Glasses
So thanks to Mr Hove and his team for a great Job, I would recommend him to anyone who is considering this treatment - its Life Changing
Honestly, getting laser eye surgery was one of the scariest experiences I've gone through BUT Dr Hove was outstanding and he put me at complete ease. He fully explained the procedure beforehand and during which was a huge comfort. Since having my procedure (Femtosecond Idesign Lasik) my eyesight has been perfect and I really wish I did it sooner. I could not recommend Dr Hove and his team enough.
I have recently had total lense replacement surgery performed by Dr Hove and was amazed how straightforward the procedure was. Dr Hove answered all my questions and was very professional throughout. I am loving my new spectacle free life!
Hi, just wanted to say a BIG thank you to the Doc and the entire team, I hated wearing glasses and never wore contacts as I was afraid to get that close to my eyes, however from the initial consultation to the final operation I had no issues or concerns, this has transformed my thinking on this type of surgery and have recommended it to many of my friends and family, I have had no problems with my now corrected eyesight, many thanks everyone.
I was operated in August 2018. As a 50-something, I had started to wear reading glasses and found them unpractical. I explored surgery in order to recover 'perfect' vision and I liked Mr. Hove's honesty that, given I had had laser surgery, my eyesight post-surgery migh be off, in which case he would adjust my vision, with a 'top up' surgery, at no extra cost. I liked the team working with Mr. Hove, both at London Medical and at the Wellington hospital. I felt cared for and could opt for additional sedation for greater comfort. My vision was indeed not spot-on post-op. However, Mr. Hove and I agreed to give my brain additional weeks to settle and the wait paid off. In December 2018, at my second post-op evaluation, my vision had materially improved as my plastic brain used my eyes differently over time. My distance vision got better; the halos shrunk and they feel less disturbing. Throughout, I felt I could reach out to Mr. Hove. He responded very promptly to any text messages I sent. He and I had very honest, to-the-point exchanges and I felt I could rely on Mr. Hove to really look after me, to make the right recommendations for me and to adapt to my needs. I am happy to whole-heartedly recommend him.
very happy with the operation on my eyes mr mfazo hove was very nice a pleasure meeting him
Very nice surgeon who puts you at ease and explains how the procedure goes.
I recently had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lens surgery, I must admit I was very worried when I arrived at the hospital, I went through many tests before the surgery, then met Mr Hove, everybody was very friendly which put me at ease. I was amazed how quick the operation was, and felt nothing at all, in fact I did not realise the op was complete !. I only had my left eye done, My next move is to have my right eye done because the results are amazing, I can see so clearly now
I had refractive lens exchange with mono-focal lenses (Monovision -one eye for reading and one for distance) carried out by Mfazo on 03 Oct 2018. I was so impressed with Mfazo's professionalism and his down to earth nature. Daunting process to go through but I felt so reassured and confident with the process being performed by Mfazo. Results are fabulous too! I have already recommended him to friends and neighbours who are considering having their eyesight improved/corrected

I underwent Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses performed by Mr Mfazo Hove. He explained everything very carefully and answered all of my questions. I am delighted with the results and would not hesitate to highly recommend him.
I had a "Piggy back Lens" operation with Mr Hove, he explained the procedure to me and reassured me. After using the drops I experienced discomfort in my eye, I was reassured this was normal and had to continue using one of the drops for a further couple of weeks.
I absolutely would recommend lens replacement surgery to anyone.
I had been considering laser eye surgery for many years due to deterioration in my vision. Like many people, I’ve purchased reading glasses, however the strain was taking it’s told. My profession as an acrylic fine painter and graphic designer requires 20-20 vision to address some of the intricate details. I did my research and laser surgery seem a viable option. Since the trifocal operation I feel I’ve been given ‘new' eyes. I can now read text 4 points and below, not since my late teens could I accomplish this, I’m now 45+ Mr Mfazo Hove is a ‘phenomenal' ophthalmic surgeon who explained my procedure step by step. I couldn’t be more 'ecstatic' with the final results. I can now deliver 'highly detailed' works to my clients which I found challenging to do for years. Thank you Mr Hove, I will definitely be recommending your services to my colleagues
I have had a plascent experience with my Eye Treatment Camp. It is a scary descission to make but trust me it's Safe and Life Changing experience. Very Compitatant and experience Doctor.
I recently had lens replacement surgery and the procedure was completed by the excellent Mr Hove. The experience was quite daunting beforehand, however around 2-3 weeks before my surgery Mr Hove called me personally and went through the entire procedure and also explained what the risks could potentially be as well, the call lasted around 30 minutes and i felt much better following our chat..
I was offered the opportunity to have both eyes operated on the same day, rather on two separate days and decided to take this option. On the day of the surgery, I had to be prepared for the operation, which was also highly professional and this process took around 90 minutes.
Before the operation, Mr Hove met with me personally and ran through what would happen, how long it should take etc, and this really put me at ease. The operation lasted around 15 minutes and I felt no pain at all and only saw bright lights during the operation. I was on my feet and on the road after another 30 minutes.
Mr Hove has been i touch since the operation to see how everything was progressing as well, a true professional. In fact, after 3 weeks my eyes are amazing and it is like buying the best possible TV after having the old one for 20 years. Both long and short sight are incredibly good with much better than 20/20 vision already.
I thoroughly recommend using Mr Hove if you are considering having eye surgery, he is a top class surgeon and also a really nice man as well.
On 3 Oct 2018, 7 weeks before my 60th birthday, I had Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses under Mr Hove.
To say that I was nervous would be an understatement, however the time taken by Mr Hove, prior to the procedure, to make me fully aware of what to expect and to answer my questions, meant that I was fully informed and put at ease. Mr Hove also given gave me his card with his mobile number encouraging me to contact him by text or call if I had any other questions not answered at the the initial face to face consultation. This was most reassuring.
On the day of the procedure, Mr Hove and his team could not have been more professional. The mood was light and the team were efficient and effective throughout. My nervous humour was met with smiles and corresponding comments which for me was an ice breaker. I was grateful to them all for that.
I cannot say that I endured any pain during or after the procedure. At worst there was some slight discomfort from time to time afterwards, but 100% manageable. What I would say though is - Beware the post op drops, Boy can they sting!!
Would I recommend Mr Hove? Yes, I would, wholeheartedly. I very much liked his approach. honest and forthright, without arrogance. He listened to my questions, both sensible and panicky, and was able to converse with me at my level.
Its 5 weeks now since the procedure and my vision is still optimising. I'm trying to be patient, but I am excited to experience the full effect of my new youthful eyes.
I thank Mr Hove and his team at the time, for the opportunity to do so.
Very professional and informative, makes sure you're at ease
Mr Mfazo Hove carried out the procedure of Refractive Lens Exchange with Multifocal lenses. The procedure was completed in a few minutes for each eye over a two day period. Mr Hove explained to me the procedures and he did the same during the very short painless surgery. Because of my experience with Mr Hove I would not hesitate in recommending him to other friends who may want to have this surgery on their eyes. Thank you Mr Hove.
Not being happy wearing glasses I decided to have laser treatment called refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses as recommended by Dr Mfazo Hove I now have 20/20 vision and I would happily recommend having eye laser treatment to my friends.
I was recommended by a friend to use Optical Express to discuss the possibility of a double lens replacement. After some consideration I made an appointment and met with Mr Hove who discussed with me the procedure, risks and likely outcome. He gave me confidence in going ahead, based on his considerable experience. On the 13th October Mr Hove carried out a Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses. After an initial 24 hours of slight discomfort and limited vision, everything improved over the next 2 weeks beyond my expectations. I can now drive, do yoga, and swim without the cumbersome use of glasses or contact lenses. My vision has never been better. Thank you Mr Hove.
My new Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lens operation:
I am very pleased to admit after Mr Hove's best work I have never looked back & it has been
life changing in terms of future horizons. Previously because of my cataract fuzziness I had to
break off my favourite sport of tennis , a month after the operation I was able to return & in some ways feeling that I was performing better than when in my prime.
I found Mr Hove's professionalism & honesty most refreshing & impressive & am pleased to recommend his services.
Should anyone wish to contact me through Mr Mfazo Hove I would be more than willing to on elaborate on my experiences in case you might think I am a relative or in his pay

I was very impressed with the surgery I received from me Hove. He took time before my surgery to make sure I understood what was happening and to answer any questions I had. My surgery was very successful with no complications I now have better than 20/20 vision for distance and reading.
My name is Dennis Zinyemba I experienced a blare vision on my left eye NHS had a long wait period to the treated so decided to go private that's when I contacted OE under the care and instructions of their top surgeon Mr Mfazo Hove who I must say is excellent at his work.He takes care of his patients like his family and being in practice for a long time you can never get anything less than best and I would gladly refer anyone with sight problem to Surgeon Hove.I now have excellent vision simply because I believe I was treated by one on the best in the business.Vision 2020 at its best
Phacoemulsification with trifocal lens implant at the platinum medical centre
Mr Hove performed the above procedure on my right eye 4 weeks ago after having had cataract surgery performed by the NHS 6 month ago, on my left eye.
Whilst never criticizing the NHS, there is just no comparison between the two procedures.
I was absolutely amazed with the result, I could see immediately after the operation and the very next day I could read a newspaper!! No need for my glasses anymore.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Hove. As a surgeon he is brilliant and his aftercare is second to none.
In my recent follow-up appointment Mr Hove confirmed that my vision is now, as he said, comparable to a Ferrari!! I could read the very bottom line of the eye chart.
Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with trifocals lenses at the platinum medical centre
I had been wearing varifocal glasses for the last 20 years and was so pleased when Mr Hove said he could perform the above procedure and I would then no longer need them.
I had both eyes done in the same operation and was amazed at the result, I could see instantly and I have now thrown my glasses away!
I can thoroughly recommend Mr Hove, he is a brilliant surgeon who is a very caring person and takes the time ensure that you fully understand the whole procedure. His aftercare is just as thorough and in my recent visit he confirmed that I now have 20/20 vision!!!!
I had Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses with Mr Hove an am delighted with the results. Within 2 weeks of the procedure my vision was 20/20.
From our first conversation, Mr Hove went to considerable lengths to make sure I was both completely aware of the work he was going to do, and comfortable with him as my surgeon.
Positive, professional & relaxing, Mr Hove insisted I did research to check his work and his references, and ensure I was happy for him to continue.
I am very pleased with the surgery and delighted with the results, and would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Hove to others..
My name is Joanna Mlodzinska and I have had an iDesign Femtosecond LASIK surgery on 27th September this year. Mr Mfazo Hove my surgeon explained everything in details before the procedure and after the whole procedure which took 30 seconds per one eye I could see straight away. I felt discomfort after the anaesthetic drops wore off but that was something highly expected. Procedure has been done exactly how described by my surgeon. During the surgery Mr Mfazo Hove kept talking to me to ensure I am comfortable and at least scared as possible. My shortsightness was a history once I walked out of the surgery room into the doctors office when Mr Hove checked my eyes and I realised I can see without glasses. Couldn’t stop smiling on my way home and ever since.
My name is Jo Hall I had Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses on the 13/14 Oct 2018. I felt very nervous but once I met Mr Hove I felt completely at ease. The operation was about 20 mins for each eye, I couldn't feel or see anything, just bright light. I had a check up the day after op & already I had better than 20/20 vision for distance & reading. I feel it's like a miracle! Not using contact lenses or reading glasses anymore. The optician knew just by looking into my eyes that the surgeon was Mr Hove! He said he only ever sees results that good when Mr Hove has done the op. My husband is going to have his done & we wouldn't dream of going to anyone else other than Mr Hove. I promise I am a genuine patient & these are truly my own words.
My name is Thomas Kelly and I had Bilateral Simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange With Multifocal Lenses surgery done by Dr Mfazo Hove in Westfield shopping centre in Shepshed Bush London. I had a very good experience with the process, the whole team were very professional. Dr Hove was very helpful explaining everything before surgery and very experienced during surgery. Everything went so smoothly and painless. I got both eyes done one Saturday and the other Sunday I had 20-20 vision the next day. Thank you all very much.
Well what can i say, 2 months since the operation and i am still looking for the catch, perfect eyesight, its just great. have recommended Mr Hove to loads of people that are looking to have surgery on their eyes, they were unaware of the speed and pain free way in which it was done.
Should have done it two years ago but the dual option was not available, got to be the way to go - Thanks again to Mr Hove and all his staff for a life changing operation
Thank you Mr Mfazo Hove and all his team. Very please with the results (refractive lens exchange with multfocal lenses) It's a dream come true for me as I had always hated having to wear glasses.
About four weeks ago I had a Refractive Lense replacement with multifocal lenses . I had both eyes done , my left eye on a Saturday and the right eye on Sunday . The first time I met Dr Hove he took his time and explained the complete process from start to finish , Dr Hove explained to me every possible side effect , this helped me to make a well informed decision to go ahead with the procedure. Every Team Meber of Dr Hove' s Team is genuinely helpful , caring and supportive. I felt no pain or discomfort during or after the procedure , and within 24 hours I removed the eye patch and was surprised about the difference this procedure has made . At first my eye sight was slightly cloudy but this got clearer by the hour. I would recommend this procedure and Dr Hove whole heartedly to anyone who considers improving their eyesight. I would like to thank Dr Hove and his team for their time and care during and after the procedure
It has been just over a year now since I had LASIK Eye Surgery in Reading with Dr Hove. I was extremely anxious and worried about having it done, however from the moment I spoke with Dr Hove he reassured me and I had full trust in him that there would be no complications. i waited a year to write this review so that I could give a rounded review and i can honestly say i have had no issues regarding my eyes since. I haven't experienced dry eyes at all and this is why Im so thankful Dr Hove was the person that did the surgery. 100% Recommend
3rd October 2018 I had Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses done recently under the care of Mr Mfazo Hove, Consultant Ophthalmologist. Mr Hove was a very friendly and a welcoming person. He gave me plenty of times and the chance to ask all the questions I wanted. He was easy to talk to and to listen to. He appeared well experienced and had all the answers to my worries. He gave me all the information I needed to allay my fears and made me feel confident. The operation went smoothly just as he had said. I was very happy to have Mr Hove as my surgeon. Being very skilled I had all the confidence in him. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Mr Mfazo Hove carried out bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange (with multi focal lenses) eye surgery on me on 19th September 2018 and I was overwhelmed by his professionalism and skill - the procedure was calm, painless, quick and immediately effective. Prior to laser eye surgery I just could not manage at all without spectacles or contact lenses, and now I don’t need them at all - I can read, drive, watch tv, play sport, admire the stars, everything. I would highly recommend Mr Hove, who promised me he could make me spectacles free - and he did! I am 61 years young and will now also never need cataract eye surgery when I get old. Thank you Mr Hove and your team!
I have had an iDesign iLasik procedure done by Mr. Mfazo Hove on both my eyes, same day. I can certainly recommend this procedure to anyone considering it as being shortsighted for almost 20 years in my life. Today is exactly a week post my treatment and I still can’t believe how great my vision is. The treatment didn’t hurt and it is worth the slight discomfort you may feel couple hours after. The next day after my treatment I felt pretty normal and eye drops I was given helped me a lot to keep my eyes moist. My surgeon was nice and straightforward. Explained everything to me in details and was happy to answear any questions. Mr Hove also gave me contact details to contact in case any queries and problems. I am forever greatful that there is someone who chose to do this kind of job so I can now have my vision restored which is extremely life changing experience for me. It’s been a week from my surgery and I am start planning my hiking trip and enjoy sport activities whenever I want. I can also reconnect to my long lost passions like life drawing, landscape drawing and water colouring
Procedure: Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multi focal lenses. So far so good, highly recommend, the staff were really kind.
my life changed on the 8/9 th September when l had lens replacement surgery. From the free consultation to the aftercare consultation the whole procedure is very well organised and undertaken. The procedure is totally pain free and would recommend this to anyone who may be nervous. Top marks to Dr Hove and his team
Mr Hove was excellent from start to finish. Explained everything in a way I fully understood and made me feel more comfortable about the whole procedure. All the staff were great and made you feel totally at ease. I'm 3 weeks on from my surgery and not had a single problem and so pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Mr Hove
I recently had Bilateral simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses which was performed by Mr Hove and I am absolutely delighted with the results, and I can’t recommend both the procedure and surgeon highly enough. If you are thinking about having this done then don’t delay you won’t regret and remember contact Mr Hove he’s excellent.
I had the operation to replace my own lenses with refractive lens exchange with multi focal lenses. Mr Hove was really professional on both the pre and the operation days I saw him. He was thorough and patient as he explained things to me and he put me at ease with his relaxed friendly manner.
Explained every detail of procedure. Highly recommended.
Treated really well. Take all the worrying side of things out of your mind by proper explanation. Eyes doing great.
Dr Mfazo, has done a wonderful job, i am very happy with the results and couldn't thank him enough, a true professional :)
My experience with Mr Hove was excellent. At my assessment visit he was very professional, polite and explained the procedure in detail. He also asked if I had checked him out on Google which I had! The day of the operation when I had both eyes operated on for Reflective Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses, Mr Hove was also very nice and made me feel at ease.
MR MFAZO is fanyastic brilliant person ,surgion . I would recomend him to every one one word exeptionala life without glasses is awsome.
I had my multifocal lense replacement done by Mr Hove, the procedure was so quick and painless, and after messing about with bi focal glasses for years I now have complete frredon from them, I can see far distance and also small print, I would recomended this procedure to anyone thinking about it, and get Mr Hove to do it, you will not be dissapointed They were done Four weeks ago
In August of 2018 at Optical Express/Westfield Shepherds Bush, I had refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses, and this surgery was done by an excellent surgeon Mr. Mfazo Hove and his team of nurses, anesthesiologists and assistants. He explained everything in detail throughout the surgical process and it made me feel very well, therefore, I was a bit tense and anxious with the whole process which is considered natural... I am extremely happy with the results of my surgery, and I would thoroughly recommend him.
After having lens replacement,i see a much brighter future ahead getting my sight back fully has given me some confidance back in myself,meeting Mr Hove was slighty marred with me stating that i thought he would have been older lol,but both he and his staff were overall friendley and proffessional throughout my treatment.Abig thankyou to you all.
Mr Hove did my eyes last thursday I had trifocal lens replacement in both eyes....allI can say is its Amazing, Mr Hove is a gentleman and explained everthing that wojld happen and how quick the process is, and true to his work it was, I was in the clinic for two hours, thats from check in to check out time, the actual operation took 15 mins on each eyes..For me it was painless, eyes were a bit blurred for the rest of the day, but by friday i could see clear and read tiny print, I am amazed I am even writing this with no glasses! ......Today I have driven from kent to Yarmouth and driving was crystal clear and again no glasses needed, I would highly recommend this procedure by Mr Hove
Mr Mfazo Hove recently carried out a Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. The whole process was very professional but at the same time personal and friendly. The results are excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Hove.
My lens replace Surgery went very well. I had both eyes done on the same day. It was extremely quick and other than a little bit of discomfort it was pain free. An I could continue my normal routines a couple of days later.
On the day of the procedure I was very nervous and the entire team did their best to reassure me everything would be fine, which it was. A couple of things which I think could be done differently though. My eyes are very nervous and the team had difficulty getting the apparatus in my eye to keep the eyelids open. I was trying my best but my eyes weren’t cooperating and I sensed frustration from the surgeon. The second thing that didn’t help was the intensity of the light being shone on my eye while trying to fit the clamp. If it was turned a bit dimmer that would certainly have helped. That said, the procedure was painless, complication free and a great success.
Two weeks ago I had a Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with trifocal lenses performed by Mr Mfazo Hove at the Wellington Hospital.
I had all the usual misgivings of entrusting my eyesight to someone else. Needless to say I am delighted to report that within 48 hours I was able to read the small print on the breakfast marmalade and now enjoy clear, colourful and precise vision over the whole range.
Mr Mfazo Hove is very caring and reassuring and is at great pains to discuss all aspects , benefits and pitfalls of the projected surgery and I would wholeheartedly recommend him.
In July 2018 I had refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses performed by Mr Mfazo Hove. He explained everything in detail which was really easy to understand, he made me feel at ease throughout the whole process. I am extremely happy with the results and would thoroughly recommend him.
Mr Hove provided excellent care and explained everything clearly to me. I wish I’d had this procedure years ago! The surgery was pain free and I would highly recommend it - in fact I already have to family and friends 😊. My only disappointment was the amount of time kept waiting for my post op appointment (almost an hour) . Other patients were equally as frustrated by this.
Mr Hove was very calming and explained everything prior to my treatment. I was very nervous but all questions were answered clearly and I didn’t feel pressured into having the treatment. Thank you for an efficient and painless experience.
Mr Hove performed Refractive lens exchange with Multifocal lenses on me, and I couldn't be happier! He is an extremely competent and professional person,, and I felt after initial nervousness, very comfortable with him. He has performed many of these procedures and I would highly recommend his services.
I had a Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses during August 2018. Mr Hove performed the surgery and I was extremely satisfied with his detailed explaining of the procedures and his guidance on the lens exchange that he was performing. It is now just over a month after the lens replacement and I no longer use spectacles and I am driving and reading comfortably. I would completely recommend Mr, Hove without any reservations to any person considering such eye treatments or his professional opinions on any such surgeries.
Having plucked up courage to go through the procedure, I can reassure potential patients that I only experienced slight discomfort before the operation, and would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Hove to anyone contemplating eye surgery. At the moment, I still have some blurring, but this should clear up in the next couple of months - the older you are, the longer it can take! Having said all that, my eyesight is excellent now - I can even thread my sewing-machine easily. Thank you
Being a Motor Boat Skipper requiring glasses to read instruments etc I had thought of lens surgery after someone had explained their experience to me of the same. After experiencing a mechanical breakdown on the boat and crawling between two hot diesel engines to rectify the problem only to realise I had forgotten my glasses then is when I decided to go for the consultation regarding the surgery. The surgery was carried out on both eyes on the same day and I was only there for three hours in total and found within a day I was seeing as well as my eight year old son. To me the money spent on this surgery is probably the best investment I have every made
On Wednesday 5th of September i had surgery performed by Mr Mfazo Hove to have Bilateral Simultaneous Refractive Lens Exchange with Multifocal Lenses fitted. to say i am pleased is an understatement, having the surgery has completely changed my life. I have made one of the best decisions i have ever made, the surgery was completely pain free, i had both eyes operated on the same day, the whole procedure took less than 2 hours,this included the pre-op scans,meeting with the optician, meeting the anaesthetist,having the surgery( which took less than 20 mins) and recovery time afterwards. The staff were pleasant,helpful and reassuring. I personally would highly recommend any one thinking of having surgery to contact and Mr Mfazo Hove. I promise you will not be disappointed
Mr Mfazo was very attentive and caring with me , very happy with the up come of my surgery and very highly recommend Mr Mfazo
Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. Results excellent. Mr Hove explained most things clearly and his advice has been useful post-procedure. I found the laser lens break down process distressing, and had not been warned about it, but it was over in seconds. The actual procedure was completely painless and very quick.
My sight started to weaken and my glasses were getting thicker, when an optician said a slight cataracts was starting,
that’s when I considered surgery
Once I had decided and got told who my surgeon was, I googled him and checked out his reviews straight away. I can categorically say that I absolutely made the right choice.
When I spoke to him at the pre-assessment, I did ask questions, along with, if he had performed this operation on his own wife too.
Mr Hove came across as confident and straight talking which was brilliant, He is efficient, very professional and engaging.
I was glad to meet the surgeon face-to-face before the surgery. I was really worried about the procedure but couldn't believe how at ease he made me feel.
Hove promised me that he would do an amazing job on my eyes in the preassessment and on the day of the surgery and he kept that promise.
I had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses.
My eyes had no visible incisions and were a little bloodshot. There was no pain , although very itchy and scratchy, like having your contact lenses in for too long.
24 hours after the operation I could see 20:20.
My eyes were very sensitive to light and I wore dark glasses even indoors for the first few days. I stuck to the aftercare regime like clockwork. Driving at night I do see halos around headlights but I was told this beforehand andI think it’s a small price to pay for the advantages.
I am now writing this 6 weeks post-surgery. It’s absolutely the best thing ever!
I was impressed with the authority and professionalism of Mr. Hove, at all times I understood and was clear on what the procedure entailed. The procedure went smoothly and at no time did I feel anxious or apprehensive, no pain and very little discomfort. I am very pleased with the results and continue to see improvements. Being glasses free has made my life more practical at work and and at play, as a keen golfer I see no detrimental effects. I would fully recommend Mr. Hove to my family and friends.
On the 7th August 2018 I had Bilateral Simultaneous refractive Lens exchange with multifocal lenses my surgeon was Mr Mfazo Hove I cannot thank him enough for this amazing surgery. I needed to wear glasses all the time as my eyesight was awe full plus I had the beginnings of cataracts. Now I do not need to wear glasses at all I can even read the newspaper, whereas before it was just a blur, also this surgery has cured my cataracts and they will not return. I can highly recommend this surgery to anyone that is thinking of having it done, Thankyou again Mr Hove.
I can honestly say that I wished I had my lens replacement done by Mr Hove years ago as it is wonderful to have 20/20 vision. thank you so much, Mr Hove!
It has been 4 weeks since my lens replacements and I am in awe of the whole procedure, I have worn contact lenses for 40yrs. From start to finish the whole procedure was handled professionally, Mr Hove and the team are all lovely and reassuring. I cannot believe I felt absolutely no pain or discomfort not even red eyes! I'm looking forward to my next holiday to be able to swim without worrying about my lenses. In so many ways it has been life changing for me, things sighted people take for granted like waking up in the morning and being able to see everything so clearly. 100% I would recommend Mr Hove and his team.
I had my operacion a 'Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses' My vsion has greatly improved. Within a week of my second check-up my vision improved dramatically. I couldn't believe my eyes! I followed the post operacion treatment correctly. I have great trust in Mr Hove's hands. No more reading glasses. What a relief.
I had 2 consultations with Mr Hove prior to my treatment in which he explained clearly the procedure and possible complications of the operation. He was throughout very approachable and the whole process was very efficiently handled by him and his team, and all were concerned to put me at my ease and explain exactly what to expect. Mr Hove told me the first operation had been tricky but successful, and the second "was a breeze" by comparison. I have subsequently been very happy with the outcome. My operation was a refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses.
I never quite believed it was possible for me to see without glasses or contact lenses both at close range and in the distance. So I approached the procedure - bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multi-focal lenses - with caution and a certain amount of scepticism. The consultation prior to the operation answered all my questions and reassured me regarding the outcome. I was worried about the fact that both eyes were going to be done on the same day, but it was no problem at all. I expected a lot of discomfort and pain, but was again pleasantly surprised. The procedure took place in a pleasant and relaxed environment and I felt well looked-after and at ease. I can honestly recommend Mr Mfazo Hove to anyone who considers Natural Lens Replacement - as I don't think it could be done better by any other surgeon.
Explained everything that would happen on the day which provided me with reassurance and made me positive about the procedure.
Hi, its two weeks since I had my lens replacement via Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. The results are amazing and will hopefully get even better as they settle down. Mfazo was very professional and made the process really easy, best decision I've ever made!
Very good doctor, caring and empathic on approach.
I found Mr Hove very approachable and friendly;he outlined clearly the options available to me, suggesting that Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses would be most suitable for me.The procedure went very smoothly and I am making a very good recovery. I feel very pleased and grateful to have benefited from his expertise.
I underwent Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses in August 2018. Under Mr Hove's care, the treatment was extremely quick, completely painless and there was no post-op soreness or redness in my eyes at all. They are been crystal clear ever since and it was not until I'd had the procedure done, that I realised my eyes had been slightly red all the time I have been wearing contact lenses. At the risk of sounding like a fake infomercial, I am thrilled with the overall results and wish I'd had the courage to have this procedure done years ago. I cannot recommend Mr Hove highly enough
I was treated very well. Now i don’t have to wear the glasses
After care is very good
Mr Mfazo Hove put all my initial concerns and worries to the back of my mind after meeting him in person prior to surgery. He explained the whole procedure from start to finish in a clear and concise manner.
The actual surgery was a breeze, and over in such a short period of time.
Most importantly though, were the results, unbelievable really, all thanks to Mr Hove and his team.
Thoroughly ran through everything I needed to know beforehand, surgery was quick and precise and now my eyesight is better than ever. So thankful I got this!
Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses.
Before I undertook my eyes surgery I had a pros and cons list and even though it fell heavily on the pros side I still waited a long time before I decided what to do, after meeting Mr Mfazo Hove and his team my only regret is that I did not have it done sooner, my vision is so good it’s beyond words to wake up to clear vision and spend the day without glasses is priceless.
So a big thank you to you and your team.
Mr Hove was excellent. He put my mind at rest by explaining everything that was going to happen during the procedure. During the procedure he was also explained everything and the nurses had a good relationship with him and everything went to plan. My sight is incredibly and has changed my life.
3 weeks ago I had a Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses done by Mfazo Hove. Mr Hove and his team were welcoming, friendly and informative and put me very much at ease ( I was a bit nervous) The procedure was totally painless and stress free and after the initial checks and pre-op sedation and eye drops, only took 20 minutes. I was able to drive the next day. I would recommend this op and Mfazo and his team to anyone who is considering it. It's the best thing I ever did for myself. I really can't say enough good things about this whole experience, it was and is totally life changing.
I’m extremely happy with my ‘Reflective lens exchange with multifunctional lenses’ operation. Mfazo was very helpful and clear with the procedure, and I was confident that my eyes were in good hands for the operation
Hi, He,s Golden hand , now I can see much better than before , God bless you 🙏
I had LASIK performed on both eyes by Mr Hove and am delighted with the results. Mr Hove was excellent throughout – he introduced himself, talked me through the procedure and listened to my questions. The actual procedure took minutes and again, Mr Hove was brilliant throughout. Having laser eye surgery was, for me, a daunting prospect but Mr Hove made me feel at ease throughout.
Mr Hove is very confident and professional in his approach and put mind at rest.
The procedure is Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses.
The procedure went very well with no pain or discomfort and was carried out in the time frame explained to me. All of the staff on the day plus the aftercare staff have been excellent and I am very happy with the results.
I have just had Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses carried out by Mr Hove, i am just amazed with the whole process and outcome. Eyes are amazing, the procedure is quick and painless, the weeks after have been painless, comfortable and easy in all honesty. I am over the moon that i never have to wear glasses ever again. The lenses and prescription he put in have settled in great and there is no need for any laser treatment. i seriously can't recommend Mr Hove highly enough, you are definitely in the hands of a professional who knows his stuff. he's passionate about his skills and reputation and i am so glad he performed my surgery.
I am very pleased with my new vision as i can see better than i ever could with glasses. Mr Hove and staff were very good in seeing to me during my operation and after care. Thank you very much
Mafazo was great he explained the whole procedure clearly and precisely. I knew exactly what would be expected of me and what Mafazo would be doing. Very open and easy to speak to.
He was flawless from his attitude to the procedure. He tried his best to keep me calm and I am very glad I did this surgery, as my vision is so perfect now. I highly recommend Dr Hove, he is the kind of doctor you want to fix your eyes. He is very pleasant as well.
Over the moon with my new vision, I had lens correction on both eyes, so glad i had it done, i was bit worried but couldn't believe how easy, quick and painless the procedure was. i am now 2 weeks down the line and vision is great, i don't need laser eye adjustment at all and i'm rid of glasses forever. Mr Hove was very professional, honest about the procedure and risks involved throughout the whole process and in all honesty, with the results i have gained from it, I'm really glad he carried out my surgery. can't recommend Mr Hove and his skills highly enough
Dr Hove is a nice man. He was very pleasant on the day on my surgery. My surgery must have been difficult because I didn't cooperate but he did his best to put me at ease.This surgery is best thing that has happened to me and my recovery was very quick.Everything was flawless, from Dr Hove's manners to the procedure to recovery.
I recently had Bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses carried out by Mr Mfazo Hove.
I am amazed at the results, I used to wear contact lenses for distance and reading glasses which I always had to carry around with me, now I am free of glasses and my reading ability is exceptional. Driving at night I do see halos around headlights but I was told this beforehand andI think it’s a small price to pay for the advantages.
I would recommend it to anyone (GB)
Absolutely amazing service from start to finish and I am so pleased with the results

I am very happy with the way it all went so well.
My procedure was for bilateral simultaneous refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses.
Warning. Long review. This is my experience as well as a review of Mr Hove.
I had short sight for 37 years and though I had often considered laser surgery before, I did not want to tempt fate and have anyone ‘mess’ with my eyes. It wasn’t until my near sight also started to weaken that I reconsidered surgery. It took me another 5 years playing around with varifocal spectacles to pluck up the courage to do so!
As it turned out, for me replacement lenses (IOLs) were my best option because of my age and that they would give me both distance and reading. I read a lot and also do detailed scale modelling work.
Mr Hove came highly recommended and I checked out his reviews (as you are now doing). Whatever surgery you are undergoing it is essential that you trust and can communicate your needs to the surgeon that is going to operate on you.
I can state categorically that I made the right choice. Mr Hove has (at the time of writing) undertaken over 5000 procedures. When I spoke to him at the pre-assessment – I did ask that question along with many others. Mr Hove came across as very confident and straight talking. Maybe a little obsessed with me reading his reviews – but I had already done that!
I would recommend that you meet your surgeon face-to-face if you can before your surgery. Mr Hove is efficient, very professional, confident and engaging. Oh, did I say he is confident?! He promised me that he would do an excellent job on my eyes in the preassessment and on the day of the surgery and he kept that promise. I’m not sure he got my sense of humour, but that isn’t one of the important things that you look for in a surgeon.
He is approachable after the event. You can contact him by several methods and he has answered me each time. I work for the NHS and liaise with many surgeons and one of the mistakes you can make is that they are arrogant (some indeed are). However, in Mr Hove’s case it is confidence and pride in his work, there is no arrogance.
As with any review site there are good reviews and bad reviews. In my case, my experience with Mr Hove is a great one. After I got back to our hotel room, after the surgery my wife looked at my eyes. She thought that I had been swindled. My eyes looked untouched, no visible incisions, no bloodshot eyes. The pain has been minimal, although very itchy and scratchy, akin to having contact lenses in for too long (yes, I tried those in the past too).
I am now 21 one days post-surgery (17th July 2018). Another reviewer put it well, keen sight at certain focal lengths and ‘ghosting’, lots of it especially when trying to read signage. VDU work is also a bit of a problem, though I am coping by changing the font size and rearranging my workstation. Don’t expect this to be a quick fix, it takes time for your eyes to heal and adapt to these multifocal lenses. Everyone is different.
Efficient, clear with details and took time to explain everything. The procedure was straightforward and as expected. 20/20 vision achieved. 7 weeks since surgery I’ve had sensitivty to light and red eye in one eye. Ongoing review with the company so far and as of writing this review I’m also contacting Mr Hove for 2nd opinion/ follow up - based on initial discussions I am confident that this will be positiv
I had refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. The procedure has changed my life, better than I ever imagined. The procedure itself was quick, painless and remarkable the next day could see the difference already. Post op had only very minor swelling which disappeared after a day or so. This was four weeks ago and completely glasses free and very happy. Can't believe I can now read small print! So glad I didn't wait until much later in life to take advantage of this amazing opportunity and sincere thanks to Mr Hove who I have already recommended to my friends and colleagues!
I recently had Refractive lens exchange with multi focal lenses surgery at the West field branch. I have to say from start to finish I have experienced Excellent service. I am a nurse myself so my standards are high. The whole procedure was over in minutes and completely Pain free. My vision was 20/20 by the Friday!!, driving by the Saturday I would recommend this procedure and definitely Mr Mfazo Hove
Approximately 8 weeks ago I had surgery for refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. When having my pre-surgery appointment Mr Hove initially recommended a different (and cheaper!) option for surgery. Unfortunately, after a trial contact lense, I realised this option wouldn't work for me. I decided to go with the above surgery as then recommended by Mr Hove... he is great (although a little rushed at times). The surgery really does not hurt at all and I was surprised at how smooth the healing process was. I am however, a little disappointed that both eyes seem to have varying distances of focus which is making me feel somewhat lopsided! Since the operation, I have also had many migraines, although this may be coincidence. I have also found that there are very definite areas of focus: 'close' (1 foot away), '3 foot away' and 'distance'. Anything inbetween those distances are blurry. This makes working on a laptop, near on impossible unless you are really near to the screen. This was something that I had not expected - I had thought that everything would be in focus all the time. I have also found that I struggle to see well in dimly lit areas now, something which I didn't have an issue with before. I emailed Mr Hove with my concerns and was surprised but pleased to receive an extremely quick reply to try and allay my worries. I am hoping that given a few more weeks/months my eyes will continue healing and full 'everywhere' focus will ensue. Fingers crossed!
I feel I was mislead from start to finish. The surgery itself was horrific as the suction cap fell off & the recovery brutal. I have gone from being short sighted to long sighted, with poorer focus. I've also got an unexplained sore spot on one eye. I'm told this may all improve with more time & nothing can be done for now.
I have had refractive lens replacement surgery with a multi focal lens, I have been wanting to do this for many years but I was just too scared to actually go through with it , so in March this year I finally plucked up the courage to do it! I had a consultation with mr Mfazo Hove and he listened to my fears and put me at ease and suggested I check out the reviews about him too to put my mind at rest, I am so happy I did,I decided to go ahead with the procedure, it is truly life changing! I’m really happy and confident now , it is such a good feeling to be able to see without straining, I used to suffer badly with migraines, but since the procedure at the end of may ive not had one ! I can only guess this is because the glasses were causing it in some way , but for me this is an added bonus , I should have done this years ago , I will recommend anyone to just go for it.
My face to face time with Mr Hove was only about 20 mins but I found him friendly and reassuring. I am very pleased with the outcome of my natural lens replacement surgery
I had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses -this surgeon was recommended because I am a nervous patient - so calm - re-assuring -(with a quiet sense of humour) was respected by the team he worked with and showed them respect to (I have only just left the NHS and I know how these guys need to work). I only wish all the medical professional I have come into contact with could practise like Mfazo. If you have any qualms request this surgeon and relax and enjoy the benefits of perfect vision without having to wear and keep changing glasses. JOS Hertfordshire
Mr Hove is just the man for the job. He makes you feel relaxed and very confident that you have chosen the best cannot rate this man high enough. thank you for my 'new eyes'
Mr Hove is the ophthalmic surgeon that I would recommend unreservedly to anyone considering having refractive lens replacement surgery. I went with multifocal lenses and they are terrific. I have already recommended him to both friends and my family, who are considering taking this fantastic step forward for those of us experiencing the remorseless effects on your sight of ageing. Have no doubts - it is like getting your young eyes back and I could not be happier. My experience was stress-free, pain-free, professional and so quick that the procedure was over before I had got used to idea that it was about to be done. Indeed it was a fascinating experience. I have had no problems since, other than some sensitivity to bright light, and a bit of irritation and itching. 100% worth it.
Thank you, Mfazo. And, as I said at the time, you are much younger looking in real life than your photo!
Dr mafazo was extremely professional,informative and caring when I recently had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. I am extremely pleased with my new vision thank you
A very stress free experience, and the end result is incredible.The whole team could not have been more caring or proffesional.
I found the surgery process absolutely brilliant, very professional and pain free.
Mr Hove made me feel very at ease.
Me Hove was professional and efficient. He performed my surgery extremely well and I am overjoyed with the results. My eyes have healed perfectly and I now have perfect vision.
After feeling very anxious and nervous in respect of my Lens change, I can confirm that on my meeting with Dr Hove, I felt at ease and trusted him 100 pc. He answered all of my questions honestly and was so professional that it made the whole experience amazing. I have even recommended Dr Hove to my friend and she is now having her eyes done too.
Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. I had this procedure done by Mr Hove, and now have 20/20 vision in both eyes. My sight had improved dramatically by the next day. I've had no problems whatsoever, no pain or discomfort. I would recommend this procedure to anyone wanted to improve their sight. Mr Hove was fantastic and made me feel at ease. I see colours differently, but best of all without wearing glasses anymore. Thank you again.
The miracle of clear vision. I smile every day! I had a cataract in one eye and poor vision in the other. When I got to the stage of having 4 pairs of glasses with various lenses I knew I had to do something about it. Although I was terrified of the thought of surgery to my eyes Mr Hove was very reassuring, professional and obviously dedicated to giving me the best vision possible. I had the eye with the cataract done first and the difference between the 2 eyes was amazing. Even 4 hours after surgery, when I had to put drops in, vision was so clear and colours were brighter. It was interesting to close one and then the other to see the tremendous difference. I had refractive lens exchange with multi focal lenses in both eyes. Best thing I’ve ever done. I felt very safe, everything, good and bad, was explained thoroughly. There was absolutely no pain, either during or after surgery. If you’re thinking of having this surgery I cannot recommend Mr Hove highly enough.
I had Idesign Lasik with Mr Hove, and I would rate him personally as genuinely excellent. Both in person and over the phone, he was courteous, friendly, explained everything in a very direct and clear manner, was patient, answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. He was confident, and did exactly what he said he would do. I certainly felt that he genuinely cared about making sure my procedure went well, and that if anything went wrong, he would be personally involved in making sure it was fixed (nothing went wrong, the whole procedure was very smooth and quick). It is a very odd experience, he explained beforehand exactly what would happen; then I was taken into the surgery room, where there were various other staff also in attendance, who were also very friendly and professional. The procedure took place; I did not feel any pain whatsoever, it is an odd sensation, but as eyedrops are put in to numb your eyes, I felt no paid at all. You can feel pressure on the eye, but that's all. The whole thing is over in probably less than 10 minutes. Afterwards, I could sort of see, but in a very blurry way as though I had a waterfall in front of my eyes. I was taken to a room for 10 minutes or so and the aftercare procedure was talked through. I was surprised by how quickly the anaesthetic wore off, for me I could feel discomfort probably about 25 minutes after the procedure. I found it impossible to have my eyes open, for the next probably 7 hours or so, I couldn't sleep, but I couldn't do anything else either. Also, my eyes watered incredibly for the rest of the day. However, the next morning, the watering had pretty much stopped, my eyes were still sensitive to the light, but there was no discomfort. It is now about 6 weeks since my procedure and my eyes are completely fine, my vision is amazing - I would say this continued to improve up to now, and is better than it ever was with glasses or contacts in. I cannot fault Mr Hove's care and expertise. I would also say that the staff at the Southampton clinic were all very friendly and professional and kind. On the other hand, I cannot say the same for the Optical Express staff with whom I dealt over the phone - they appear to go out of their way to be as patronising and rude as possible; they are pushy, they made numerous phone calls to me asking for the same information which suggests they failed to write it down the first time they asked, and they made me uptight every time I had to speak to them. This is a shame, as the people in store were lovely. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the results, and Mr Hove in particular I cannot fault. Optical Express on the other hand...not so much.
Procedure: Cataract removal and natural lens replacement with monofocal implant carried out on Wednesday 16th May 2018 at Optical Express. Mr. Mfazo Hove is a very well qualified, experienced and respected consultant, who carried out the above-mentioned procedure on my left eye. I am pleased to report that the procedure has been a complete success, resulting in a trouble-free eye and excellent vision. I am blind in my right eye so I was apprehensive about an operation on my left. However, throughout the initial consultation and in theatre on operation day, Mr. Hove explained in detail the whole procedure, the risks involved, procedures to correct any problem with the implant and answered patiently all my questions. His manner throughout was professional, confident, calm and caring. I have complete confidence in him and have no hesitation in recommending him. He is an excellent surgeon.
Just over three weeks ago, I had "Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses" procedure to correct my short sight, carried out by Mr Mfazo Hove at Optical Express, Southampton. The procedure sound quite daunting with my natural lenses being replaced with an artificial ones that would not only correct my myopia, they would also act as a potential future proofing against a requirement for reading glasses and would negate the need for any cataract surgery. I must say that the process was pain free and apart from the drops issued I have had no need to take any additional medication. I cannot commend highly enough the skill employed by Mfazo and his team resulting in my sight being remarkably good at all ranges and hopefully will continue to improve over the coming months. To anyone having apprehensions over this procedure, I would say do not hesitate or worry as Mfazo and his team are excellent professionals and you are in safe hands. 09 June 2018.
I had refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses 4 weeks ago by Mr Hove, all I can say he was brilliant, put me at ease and was very professional, I do recommend him.
I am writing to say that you performed a Refractive lens exchange with Multifocal lenses 3 weeks ago and i am so happy af not having to wear glasses for reading or long distance anymore. You and the team were so reassuring and i could not believe how painless and quick the surgery was. Thank you so much.
Kept informed from start to finish and always had full confidence in the team. I had refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses and I am delighted with the result.
I recently had refractive lens exchange surgery (with multi focal lenses) and am really pleased with the results. My eyes and focus are still slowly adjusting but the fact that I don't need glasses or contact lenses to go about my daily business is remarkable. Mr Hove was brilliant, he was really professional and knowledgeable and inspired me with confidence which put my nerves at ease. He was available to answer questions which also really helped. The surgery itself was easy and painless and i had no bruising, swelling or discomfort. Amazing....
Very professional and diligent throughout. Apart from the success of my lens replacement operation, there are three main reasons for my excellent rating: (1) during the pre-operation phone call one evening out of hours , Mr Hove was very personable and unhurried;, he took time to listen and to explain. This was very re-assuring; (2) also, during the call, he took time to help me understand the risks. There was no 'hard sell' and was re-assuring because he was not seeking to hide anything; (3) post-operation, the resulting symptoms are exactly as he described they would be (which adds further credibility).
Dear Mfazo and the team. I am writing to say you performed the Refractive Lens exchange with multifocal lenses 3 weeks ago and it is absolutely amazing. I can sit and read and see long distance no problem. The surgery itself was so easy and whilst i was nervouse for the first eye, i was relaxed for the second eye as you could not feel a thing. Luckily i had no after effects my eyes felt great when i remived the patch. The rest of the team were so nice and reassuring. I have told my friends and colleagues what an amazing surgeon Mfazo is.
I had the Idesign Femtosecond LASIK done. Everything was explained clearly and the procedure went perfectly.
Following my Design Femtosecond Lasik eye treatment I found Mr Hove to be very professional explaining the process to me, and made me feel at ease. During the treatment Mr Hove's team were very friendly, helpful and the process went very smoothly,painless and over in a few minutes. I'm very happy with the results of the treatment and I would recommend Mr Hove to anyone looking for eye treatment. Thank you for a pleasant experience and great results
I am now 1 week and 3 days in after having Lasik Idesign treatment, I cannot believe the amazing results! Mr Hove's calm nature and professionalism was exactly what I needed at such a nervous time, he was understanding and answer my questions. Wish I had done this years ago!. Thank you.
Surgery I had: Idesign Femtosecond LASIK done in Southampton at the start of May (for both eyes)
My previous eyesight: Very short-sighted with astigmatism
Eyesight after surgery (one month on): better than 20/20 vision, amazing.
A few days before my surgery: The surgeon (Mr Mfazo Hove) gave me a call to explain the potential risks and told what to expect on the day of surgery. He was very clear and concise.
Summary of the surgery:They put some drop in my eyes, lasered my eyes and all was done in a bit more than 4 mins (I think). I didn't feel any pain whatsoever, it was bit uncomfortable when the eyelid holder was placed though. The surgeon and his team were very reassuring throughout.
Straight after the surgery: Mr Mfazo Hove checked that everything was alright and thankfully it was.
After the anaesthetics wore off: Rivers of tears came running down my face for an hour (they say it's like cutting raw onion but it was more than that for me) and my eyes were stinging but I didn't really feel any pain. I had a bit of inflation in my eyes for a few days afterwards and could see halos around lights for a few weeks but my vision was better than 20/20 after a few days.
Finally: Excellent, caring and professional surgeon.
Right from first speaking to Dr Hove on the phone, he put my mind at rest. Meeting him face to face on the day of surgery further relaxed me. He is kind and supportive and puts you at ease before the surgery. The results have been AMAZING! After some initial slight blurry vision and a little bit of grittiness/discomfort (all normal), I woke up the next day with perfect vision. At my follow up appointment the next day, I was told my eyes were healing well and my vision was better than 20-20! I am now one week on from surgery and apart from a little amount of haloing around lights (again, normal), my eyesight is perfect and I wish I’d had the surgery sooner! Thank you Dr Hove!
My main reason for wanting lens replacement was the need for reading glasses. I had one pair for the computer, another for reading, both of which made me feel older than my age. I have good distance vision and did not want to lose that, but also wanted to get back the intermediate and the near vision. I discovered Mr Hove after a recommendation from a colleague who he operated on at Optical Express. I saw him at London Medical and then had both my operations on the same day at the Wellington. I chose this route as opposed to going to Optical Express because I wanted trifocals lenses and my colleague had complained about long waits on the day of surgery at Optical Express. The service at both London Medical and the Wellington was impeccable and I felt like I was getting a first class service. Now the vision- fantastic! I am setting this without glasses and haven’t used them since the surgery. Very happy to be free of glasses completely for all tasks. I’ve had to get in touch with Mr Hove a couple of times and on both occasions he replied to my texts promptly and was happy to help. I can’t recommend him enough and I’m glad I decided to see him directly. I am grateful for the care he gave me and loved his forthright approach to everything.
Had a great experience. Mr Hove was really calm, clear and reassuring. It was all over in a moment and the whole team were lovely and talked me through step by step. It’s been amazing since. Wish I’d done it sooner.
I recently had a Bilateral simultaneous Refractive lens exchange with trifocal lenses at Wellington Hospital performed by Mfazo Hove.
Although normally done under a local anaesthetic, I explained that I was very nervous and would rather have a general.
I had a meeting with him and various phone calls, in which he allayed my fears, talked me through the procedure, and put me completely at ease with his confident easy manner.
The operation was a complete success and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Hove, in fact it was the best decision I've ever made!
Very professional and reassuring, made me feel very comfortable in the lead up, throughout and after the surgery, would highly recommend, very happy with the results also. Well over 20/20 within 24hours
From my first meeting with Mr Hove I knew this was the eye surgeon for me. He explained everything very clearly and on many occasions made sure that I knew exactly was going to happen and the risks involved.
The operations themselves were completely painless and unbelievably quick.
I’m now a couple of months on since my operations and my vision is now 20/20 on my reading and my distance which I am absolutely delighted with.
What I also liked about Mr Hove is the fact that you can contact him personally anytime with any questions you may have before or after the procedure.
Mr Mfazo Hove performed an multifocal lens replacement on me in April this year. The results have been stunning. We found it difficult to make initial contact for my pre-op consultation (he is a busy man, as am I!) over the phone but once this was done I found him to be most professional with a very good way of explaining the procedures. In my opinion he is a first rate eye surgeon and Optical Express are very lucky to have him. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr Mfazo Hove to anyone considering this kind of surgery.
I found and booked Mr Hove through Doctify. His secretary called to confirm the appointment and get some further details. I attended my consultation at London Medical. I was impressed with Mr Hove’s honesty about the compromises involved in having Trifocals. I wanted to be spectacle independent but also see my 3 computer screens which are about 1m from me clearly. He explained that by splitting the light to achieve the near, intermediate and distance vision, I would not achieve the same clarity as a monofocal lens using all the light for just one distance, but that I would have enough clarity for most activities in bright light. I went ahead with the Fine Vision Trifocals he recommended. I had my surgery at the Wellington a month ago and I’m very happy with my overall vision. I have no glasses, I can see my 3 screens clearly and the glare and haloes aren’t particularly troublesome as I rarely drive at night. I can highly recommend Mr Hove and have done to my colleagues.
I am very pleased with the results of my treatment with Mr Hove. He is very focussed on your individual needs and is a very confident professional during surgery. I always felt at ease with him and his colleagues including the nurses at Wellington Hospital. I now have better that 20/20 vision and feel like life is starting all over again with my new eyes. I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Mr Hove as he did put his self out for me on one occasion.
I had refractive lens exchange with Trifocal lenses at the Wellington. I am over the moon both with my vision and the care I received. I chose Mr Hove as I found numerous reviews about him and he seemed to be focused mainly on eliminating glasses which was my primary aim. I consulted with him at London Medical. The facilities were excellent, my booking was in time and all the tests were done before I saw him. I consulted with him for 45 minutes and he answered all my questions honestly. Surgery was the following week, both eyes the same day. The Wellington was lovely and clean. I ordered from the menu before the operation, met Mr Hove and my Anaesthetist. I remember going to the anaesthetic room and then coming out with both eyes covered with a clear shield. I was blurred but could still see to eat the food I had ordered. Mr Hove told us to order for both me and my partner which was nice. As regards the vision the trifocal does as promised. I am without my glasses, can see close up, my computer screen at almost a metre, and I can see clearly to drive. The glare and haloes were disconcerting initially but I am getting used to them. Overall I am very impressed with everything and would highly recommend Mr Hove to anyone wanting premium care. Thank you so much.
There are simply not enough stars here for Mr Hove. I had cataracts in both eyes and was getting borderline for driving. Local private hospitals had been very iffy about Trifocal lenses but I discovered that this was based on research that was 10 years old. In technology terms, that is a long time. It's a frightening decision as it is your sight so it's massive. I found Mr Hove after some research and went to see him. He has done a lot of work and research on trifocals at Moorfields Eye Hospital and is fully up to date with developments. Apart from his immediate charm and enthusiasm, it was immediately obvious that he was honest and didn't try to sugarcoat facts for the sake of making money. He gave me very straight facts on the pros and cons of trifocals, also the possible things that can go wrong with cataract ops in general (which are few) and addressed my fears about the night vision issues I had read about on the internet. As many of you will know, these lenses do change the way you see headlights and street lights at night. Some claim that after a few months, this goes away. Mr Hove was very clear that it would never go away BUT that you could get used to so you no longer noticed it and he preferred me not to try to mitigate it with yellow glasses or anything else as it might delay acclimatising to the lenses. He explained he had implanted the lenses in both taxi and bus drivers who work at night. So how was it? The team at London Medical who assessed my eyes were very good and professional as well as human. The Wellington Hospital where he operates was superb (save for a slightly cumbersome checking in at the front desks), the day rooms had very comfy beds, friendly nurses and a generous and delicious menu. I was properly briefed both before, during and after the op which took only 30 minutes for both eyes on the same day. After a mild panic the first night because I could read neither my phone nor computer screen - though long distance was great; my brain caught up with me in the middle of the night remembering my pupils had been fully dilated for the operation and there was no way I could focus till that wore off. By the next morning, I could read even the tiniest print on my phone as well as distinguish individual leaves on tress across the garden! Result! I was under sedation but awake but the light in your eyes during the op does not allow you to see anything (this is for the squeamish) So what about night vision. Well yes, it is different but MUCH BETTER than I had with cataracts where car lights dazzled me to an almost dangerous level (frankly I was amazed I was still legal to drive) and the star burst effect was awful. With my new lenses, it isn't a hindrance at all. It's just different. Some car lights already have a main light and then a circle of small lights bulbs around the main light. OK, so imagine another 2-3 circles beyond that making the lights look quite big. It's a bit like all car lights have had Xmas lights fitted, but I personally get no glare or starburst. It just looks different. I'm not dazzled, I don't feel a need to slow down. If car lights were designed like that, you wouldn't worry about it. Street lights are similar, but after the first journey where I was noticing everything, I quickly realised that I didn't normally drive around looking up at street lights, I looked ahead and they went into peripheral vision. Cats eyes and the red and green lights on the side of the road don't appear to be affected. It took me two drives to realise that's how car lights look from now on and it was no big deal. Eye drops 4 times a day for 6 weeks is the aftercare. My recent pre-op test showed 20/20 vision. Goodbye glasses! Mr Hove was delighted at the results. His aim is NO GLASSES for as many as possible. Whilst he does explain beforehand that adjustments are sometimes needed after the op, he explains those clearly and makes the costs clear too. Nothing was a surprise. Mr Hove's obvious delight at a successful op shows his true pleasure in and dedication to what he sets out to do. He has given me back something extremely precious.
I had iDesign LASIK surgery. Mfazo was fantastic throughout. Not only is he a great doctor who clearly knows what he is doing, he is also great at keeping you calm, informed and comfortable throughout the process. He’s very accessible and I’m comfortable that I can contact him whenever needed. He made the whole procedure as smooth and seamless as possible and I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
Great person very professional and also reassuring can not praise this man and his team enough thank you so much
Mr Hove was excellent throughout my surgery. He was confident in answering my questions which reassured my nerves.
I had my surgery brought forward and he called me at short notice outside of average working hours to explain everything thoroughly, talked me through each step of the way.
My procedure was Idesign Femtosecond LASIK.
Mr Hove was brilliant on both the call and the day explaining everything in detail and putting my mind at rest. The procedure was exactly as he described.
Mr Hove was professional, reassuring, and took the time to explain the procedure (Idesign Femtosecond LASIK) and answer any questions I had. I would, and have, recommended him to anyone considering laser eye surgery.
I had Idesign Femtosecond LASIK surgery performed by Mr Hove on 19/04/18. On the day he was clear and precise always answering any questions in a friendly manor informing me of all aspects of what was happening on the day. My daughter was with me on the day and she commented immediately how he put her at ease and she wasn't even there for a procedure! During the procedure Mr Hove kept me fully informed of what was happening at all times and in the end even though I was nervous at the beginning I soon relaxed and before I knew it I had finished. It is 10 days since the eye surgery and I am extremely happy with the results, I can see clearly now further than I did even when I used to wear contact lenses! I am happy to write this positive review and anybody who is having a procedure done by Mr Hove can be assured they are in good hands on my experience. As a finishing touch before we left Mr Hove gave me and my daughter (in case I lost mine) his card saying I could call if I had any questions post op.
Very nice guy and very informative
I am extremely pleased with Dr Mfazo Hove and the Optical Express Team with Refractive lens exchange surgery with multi-focal lenses. The consultation and dates for the surgery were very quick and the procedure was fully explained with all the risks involved. The day after the operation, I had better than 20:20 vision with barely no inflammation or bruising of both eyes. This was truly above my expectations and for me life changing. I was apprehensive regarding the procedure, but it is reassuring to know that you can contact Dr Hove on his personal cell phone should you have any complications. I would definitely recommend NLR to anyone, in fact my wife is considering the treatment in the near future as the whole experience was less painful than imagined.
Was very impressed at how professional Dr Hove is. He made me feel very calm and confident to go ahead with the procedure. I recommend, 3 weeks today that I did the surgery and it has changed my life NO MORE GLASSES - thank you for everything
I have had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses, back in January 2018 Mr Mfazo Hove was amazing from our very first meeting through to the operation and aftercare. His explanation of the procedure and after care was thorough and my surgery and recovery has gone flawlessly. I would certainly recommend him based on my experience with him
I have had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses, Mr Mfazo Hove was amazing from our very first meeting through to the operation and aftercare. I can honestly say I felt nothing during the operation and it was over so quickly. I can now read anything without glasses, which I have not been able to do in over 30 years. I would highly recommend Mfazo to anyone thinking of having eye surgery.
I had Refractive Lens Exchange with Multifocal Lenses carried out at the beginning of April 2018 at Optical Express, WestFields. The procedure was carried out by Mr Mfazo Hove. I was a little apprehensive about having the procedure done but Mr Hove was fantastic. Everything was explained thoroughly, including the risks involved and I left the first consultation feeling much more confident. The days of the procedure were made stress free and simple by all the staff at Optical Express and Mr Hove was extremely reassuring during the pre op consultation. I had one eye done on Good Friday and the other one done the next day. The procedures themselves were completely painless and completed in less than 10 minutes. The check up, carried out 24 hours after the second procedure, revealed that I had better than 20/20 vision which was wonderful news. I'm currently continuing with the drops and have my one month check up very soon. The whole experience has been easy and hassle free. I would recommend Mr Hove to anyone thinking of having this procedure.
Thanks to Mfazo's expertise, I can now see again without glasses!

I am extremely pleased with Dr Mfazo Hove and the Optical Express Team with the NLR with multi-focal lenses. The consultation and dates for surgery were very quick and the proceedure was fully explained with the risks involved. The day after the operation I had better than 20:20 vision, this was above my expectations and is truly life changing.
I was very apprehensive with the procedure, but it is reassuring to know that that you can contact Dr Hove on his personal mobile phone if you have any complications.
I would definitely recommend NLR to anyone considering this procedure and in fact my wife is considering the same after my experience.
I had lense replacement surgery one week ago today. My vision was instantly better as soon as the patches were removed four hours after surgery. The operation was very painless and Dr Hove was very comforting and confident he made me feel at ease.
Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses The treatment was quick and painless, the staff were all great and Dr Hove made me feel at ease and explained every thing to me. My vision now is better than 20/20 and has changed my life, worse part about the whole thing is i cant get out of the habit of looking for my glasses that i don't need anymore, This is a life changing operation and I would fully recommend it.
I huge thank you Mr Hove together with your team at Optical Express (Westfield) for my Refractive Lens Exchange with Multifold Lens. An amazing experience which has changed my life. From the day I had the proceedure I have had better than 20/20 vision. I felt fully informed all the way and knew I was in very safe hands. The care and professionalism of the whole team made the experience enjoyable. A very big thank you to you all.
I had a Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses performed by Mr Hove at Optical Express, Westfield at the beginning of April. He was charming, professional and caring throughout. He explained the possible issues relating to the operation thoroughly and took time to understand what I needed. i would thoroughly and wholeheartedly recommend him. I had no pain or discomfort at any point and now have better than 20/20 vision (who even knew that was a thing?). My only regret is not doing it sooner. HS (Aged 55).
The most amazing experience and now I have better than 20:20 vision.
From the first consultation to present, I can not fault the procedure at all.
I researched a lot before my first consultant appointment. I then had a telephone call with Mr Hove. He confirmed everything I had researched,
answered personal questions. I came off the phone feeling very positive about the whole procedure. Mr Hove was lovely and reassuring and set me homework to investigate him as a practitioner. Which I duly did! Nothing but positive comments.
The day of my first eye op... we arrived at Westfield’s st 7am in the morning! Personally the best time to have it... journey from Reading a breeze and in and out in 2 1/2 hours. Home by 10.30. Everyone I met were lovely... very quick and pain free. After lots of eye tests snd drops, I went under the first machine for seconds to soften the lens then through to the anaesthetist... then actually can’t remember anything else till I heard a nurse ask if I was okay to get into a chair. The nurses and Mr Hove spoke throughout and reassured me. My eye was patched up. The nurse then went through all the drops I had to take and after a lovely cup of tea I went out to see my husband. After 4 hours I removed the patch and could see really clearly. Have To put in drops 4 times a day. Really no problem. One set of drops did sting. I had to wear the shield at night. Round two the following day ,felt better as knew the procedure. Stayed awake throughout, really no problem. Completely painless. The best thing I have ever had done. No makeup for two weeks and I did find I had to wear sunglasses sometimes inside under bright lights, especially spotlights. I experienced slight flickering. Now two weeks on feeling fabulous! No shields at night flickering greatly reduced. Still eye drops and wore eye makeup for the first time. The best thing I have ever had done. Very highly recommend it! Everyone I met were delightful and very reassuring
I am delighted with the outcome of my treatment and the attention before was very helpful and informative, would recommend.
I’m very pleased to write this review about the excellent skills of Dr Hove – the precision laser eye surgery he performed on both my eyes has transformed my life. The procedure was ‘Retractive lens exchange with multi-focal lenses’ (also known as ‘Natural Lens Replacement). It was not a decision made lightly, but I’m completely satisfied with the results. Dr Hove is such a warm-hearted professional and he went out of the way explaining things to me during the pre surgery consultation as well, which was really reassuring.
Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. Mr Hove was very helpful, honest and professional. He made me feel 100% at ease both before and during my surgery. I would highly recommend Mr Hove who I can honestly say has changed my life.
Having had Phacoemulsification with multifocal lenses procedure in both eyes to address medication induced cataracts, my vision literally the following day was two lines better than 20:20. I had my concerns with this surgery as I’m in my early 30’s plus I work on a computer and lead an active lifestyle. Mr Hove addressed all my concerns I had with very accurate explanation of what to expect especially his explanation of the loss of sharpness for short vision in a range where he explained it using a painter/artist analogy. All in all 100% satisfied and definitely recommended.
I would like to say a big thank you to MrHove and the after care team. Mr Hove was very professional and explained to me very clearly about the procedure I was having which was the idesign femtosecond lasik. I would definitely recommended him to any of my family and friends.
After years of wearing high prescription lenses I made the decision to have NLR. The consultation was easy and dates fro surgery were very quick. The procedure itself was was nothing like as bad as I thought it would be. The staff and Mr Hove were amazing and made me feel relaxed and confident. I was told by several members of staff that this surgery would be "life changing for me" due to my very high prescription. After only a couple of hours I walked out of the clinic following the second procedure specs and contact lens free. Three weeks on my sight is fantastic and it really has change d my life. Thank you to everyone involved.
Mr Hove was a very pleasant surgeon who explained everything thoroughly at the time of consultation and just before the procedure.
A true gentleman and fantastic Eye Surgeon. Very charming and friendly Doc. He explained the procedures to me and completely put my mind at rest. He did a perfect job and I have 20-20 vision now and can only thank Dr Mfazo and God for this second gift of sight. Thank you again to you and your wonderful staff at Optical Express.
The whole experience with Optical Express was pleasurable from start to finish. Mr Hove was reassuring on the two occasions I had a chance to speak to him and was patient answering my questions which he must of heard 100’s of times from his numerous patients. The only reason I didn’t give a fifth star is because my right eye was very red (with a little blood) after the op on it whereas the left eye recovered and looked normal much quicker than the right. Three weeks on it still looks a little bloodshot but ironically the sight out of the right eye is slightly more sharp than the left. Anyway thanks to Mr Hove for making me see SO much better.
Very friendly and personable doctor! I had Idesign Femtosecond Lasik booked through Optical Express but my surgeon was Mfazo. Mfazo was direct and clear with communications about the process and made me feel at ease. He was actually one of the friendliest members of staff I spoke to throughout the process (I certainly wouldn't be giving Optical Express a 5-star review). He had great positive energy which is what you want before going into surgery. I would certainly recommend Mfazo after my experience with him. - P.S. it's a week and a half after the surgery I'm loving my new vision!
I recently received (Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses) treatment carried out by Mr Mfazo Hove on the 13th and 14th March 2018. The process was completely painless and the treatment and care was of the highest standard. My eye test a few days ago shows i now have 20 20 vision, I can now read without glasses. It is a totally amazing process and i would rate the experience as absolutely wonderful with a result that far exceeded my expectations.
I had idesign LASIK eye surgery 10 days ago and I'm extremely pleased with the whole process. Mr Hove was very good and answering all of my questions and eased all of my concerns on the pre op call. Would highly recommend Mr Hove to anyone considering laser eye surgery. He clearly cares for his patients, not just on the day but the follow up care as well. Thanks, A.K.
Mr Hove is lovely...everyone was lovely...I was a little terrified if I’m honest but within a few days it does settle down very quickly...was a little bit peeved as all my pirate buddies in the waiting room on the second day looked perfectly normal...whereas I looked like I’d been punched in the eye😳 Its a long and for me quite a traumatic day but it does get better quite quickly...having a few issues with blurring afterwards, which I’m hoping can be sorted by the “tweeking” with the laser...all in all...it’s great to not wear contact lenses anymore...I can fall asleep whenever I want now without my lenses drying out...happy days 😀
I would not hesitate in recommending Mr Hove for lens replacement eye surgery. My procedure was Calcified Lentis Mplusx removal with multifocal lens- 6/6.
I met Mr Hove in London a week before surgery on my left eye to replace replacement lenses in both eyes. He was very professional in the way he explained what the procedure involved. It would be a very tricky operation to remove the old faulty lens and get the new one put in. He advised me to come at the end of his list of appointments as he wanted to focus on my surgery with no time pressures
On the day the operation couldn't have gone better. All the staff were very professional in their roles and the procedure was completed as planned. The clarity of vision is already much improved.
The surgery on my second eye followed the same high standard and I am attending programmed follow up appointments
Mr Hove was excellent. Calming, friendly and confidence inspiring when needed. I'm extremely happy with my "new eyes", at 0900 the day after the operation I already had way better than 20/20 vision and later that day it eclipsed my corrected sight with contact lenses.
Overall i'm extremely happy with the service.
On the 13th & 14th March I had lens replacement multifocal lenses, Mr Mfazo Hove put me at ease when he called me pre-treatment discussion, answering all my questions in a way that I could understand what the procedure involved, this made me feel confident and that I had made the right decision.
On both days Mr Mfazo Hove spoke to me about the procedure and what to expect and gave me the opportunity to ask any last-minute questions, I had my right eye done first and the next day it was amazing how well I could see.
14th March I had my second eye done and I received the same excellent service, I would like to thank Mr Hove for giving me back my vision, I would highly recommend Mr Hove if you are thinking of having this done.
I had blood shot eyes for about a week, also my right eye felt like I had something in it, I was reassured my eye was a bit dry and given some drops which has resolved the feeling I was experiencing,
The care I received from start to finish was first class and my sight is truly amazing I had 20 – 20 vision in my right eye after my first check-up.
Excellent service. Excellent team efforts. Made me very comfortable before the procedure. Dr. Hove is the best and well-trained specialist.
Mr Hove was very professional, honest and efficient.
Mr Mfazo was fantastic from consultation through to the operation.He was very approachable and I was very impressed with his professionalism and skill.I did review his profile in advance of the surgery and this helped with specifically choosing him to undertake the multi focal lens replacement
I just wanted to write a little something about my lasik treatment I had done it's amazing! Surgeon mr mfazo hove was very precise very nice man told me excatly what was going to happen so i felt very comfortable so thankyou! I can see it's amazing! I just have 1 blood shot eye now and it's 5 days since having it done and a little dry but always use your drops! So thankyou again!
Excellent service. Excellent team who talk me through the procedure . Very clean and hygienic. Doctor Hove took his time with perfection .
I had refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses. I have to say it is one of the best things I have ever done. I was made to feel at ease throughout the whole procedure, although I was very apprehensive. Only one downside, that’s the killer drops for your eyes afterward, but it’s only for a month. So my advice, if you are thinking about doing it, is go for it.
The care I received from Mr Hove, from the pre-op consultation to the natural lens replacement procedure on both eyes, was first class. I have no hesitation in passing on my highest recommendation. D.D.
On the 5th & 6th of March Mr Hove Installed my new eyes, that is what it feels like. I had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. Mr Hove put me at ease with this when he rang me for my pre-treatment discussion. He answered any questions i had and asked me to look him up on Google. I was impressed by his confidence which made me think i had made the right decision. The operation only took approx 10 minutes,I never felt a thing,all I could see was a bright light he is a brilliant surgeon. I am very impressed with the results and the speed of them. My left eye was done first. The next day when it was examined I had 20 / 20 vision. Mr Hove said it would get even better, he was correct, then my right eye was done with the same results. I will certainly recommend him, and have done so already. Thank you very much Mr Hove.
I have recently had eye surgery carried out by Mr Hove, I had Reflective lens exchange with multifocal lenses in both my eyes. I am totally delighted with the outcome, I can even thread a needle!!!. I can unreservedly recommend Mr Hove for eye surgery. Am truly delighted - J.A.
I received Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses Day one, first eye Surgery went well, didn’t feel a thing. After the stated time I removed the eye guard to apply the drops, I had a weird looking eye which was still fixed in one place. My sight in that eye was still very blurred but started to get better by the evening. Day 2, Second eye Surgery on my second eye went well. Vision in my first eye was still a bit blurry. Day 3, the difference in the vision in my first eye was much improved, my second eye vision was still blurred, slightly bloodshot and I was given some ointment for a slight swelling. During all this time, I felt no discomfort except for one of the eye drops which did sting for a few seconds. During the evening on day 2 I was reading text on my phone and it dawned on me that I was reading well without glasses. Within 5 days I was back at work in front of a computer and I can see well at all close ranges. My distance vision is good but think it will improve more with time. Mr Hove said it would continue to improve over about 3 months. Very happy with results It’s been 2 and a half weeks since my surgery and all going well. I am experiencing lots of halos and ‘fireworks’ when driving at night but Mr Hove says this will improve in time. I had laser treatment about 10 years ago and experienced the same light issues then but it did go after a few months. Many thanks to Mr Hove he’s done a great job! A.C.
I had Refractive Lens Exchange with Multifocal Lenses, under the care of Mr Hove. Any questions I had he was very helpful, and explained everything that was going to happen. It is a very daunting experience but I am so glad I went through with it. Anyone considering it, I say hi for it. Get Mr Hove if you can, he is very good.
I am so pleased with my treatment I received from Dr. Mfazo Hove. From the moment I met him at my pro op consultation I felt completely at ease. He explained everything about my operation for Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses in great detail. On both surgery days he came to speak to me before the procedure, again putting me completely at ease. The results are truly amazing. I have had no problems and would not hesitate to recommend him. D.H.
Objectively discussed the pros and cons of the procedure, including short term and long term complications. Very professional and reassuring.
Mr. Hove carried out Multifocal lens replacement surgery on me about 2w ago. He objectively discussed the risks and benefits of the procedure. He was very reassuring and professional. Surgery and post op follow up went very well.
I would like to thank Mr Mfazo Hove for my recent refractive lens exchange procedure of which I had on March 7th & 8th I found him & his team very reassuring & put me at ease even though I wasn’t worried in any way as I felt very confident after speaking to Mr Hove on my phone consultation a few weeks earlier. My vision is 20/20 but am suffering a bit with very dry eyes but feel happy in the fact I can if at all worried can speak to someone on the team & happy that I am having regular checkups.
I'm recommend Mr Hove to all my friends and family.
I was so nervous about having this done and could've easily backed out again, but after speaking and meeting with Mr Hove he put any doubts and worries away. He's so such precision in his job and his manner is of a normal guy who is passionate about his work. Highly recommended and very pleased I can now see short and long distance.
All I can say is Thank you.
I have nothing but praise for Mr. Hove and his excellent team. Their care and attention to detail was second to none. I was well informed about every stage of the procedure and felt empowered to ask questions and raise any concerns. The surgery it's self was quick and painless and has been life changing for me. I have been short sighted science early childhood. Lens replacement has shown me a new world. Many thanks.
A big thank you to Mr Hove for giving me back good vision. I had refractive lense replacement surgery two weeks ago with multifocal lenses. I am a 68 year old woman who had mild cataracts and did not get on with bifocal glasses. In fact I hated them. I was very nervous about the procedure, but need not of worried. Mr Hove put me at my ease and explained everything . The surgery went very well and was over before I knew it and was painless. Mr Hove and all the staff at Westfield were very professional pleasant and kind. My follow up has been excellent at Milton Keynes. My eyes were abit gritty to start with which has now settled down and I am delighted with my vision. Thanks again to Mr Hove and all his team.
Confident and skilled surgeon I had total confidence in his work and I was proved right the result is amazing, many thanks
Mr Mfazo Hove, carried out Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses on both my eyes. My left eye was done on the Wednesday, and my Right eye on the Thursday. The staff at the clinic were very helpful and very competent at there work. I was very impressed with their aftercare. Mr Hove did discus with me, the procedure that he was going to perform, and assured me that I would not feel a thing and that it would be over in a short time. He was absolutely correct. It has now been 14 days since having the procedures done, and I can say without any conviction that my sight has improved tremendously. I now have 20/20 vision, which I have not had for many years. I have spoken to quite a few of my friends, about the procedure, and they have commented, how surprised they were, with my recovery, which has given them food for thought of their own. I now do not wear glasses for driving. Mr Hove. Many thanks for bring back my 20/20 vision. My you carry on with your good work.
Well pleased with my new vision !
Explain everything clearly including the risks as well as the benefits.
On Tuesday 13th Left eye and 14th Right eye of March 2018 i had Refractive Lens Exchange with Multifocal Lens operation by Mr Mafazo Hove, Mr Hove phoned me on Monday 5th March for my pre operation consultation where he explained everything that was going to happen and answered all my "what if" questions putting me completely at ease, On the day of my first eye i was not nervous as Mr Hove was very calm and explained what was happening, The pre op sedation certainly helped fully relax me and i didn't feel anything, I saw one bright light for a short while then a few minutes later he said all done and that it had gone well. Pre op in the waiting area was quite quiet but after the operation all patients sitting around together was a very different matter we were all chatty and cracking jokes about being in the Pirates society. Later that day i removed the bandage and administered my first eye drops and to my joy could already see quite well. The next day i could see well enough to read a news paper with my new vision, "Brilliant". Going back the next day for my right eye exciting not scary in any way. I would like to say a big thank you to Mr Hove and his very professional yet very friendly team who made the experience a pleasure.
Following Lazik surgery (not done by Mr Hove) I had Microbial Keratitis (eye infection) in both eyes. I was eventually referred to Mr Hove who performed an immediate flap amputation and prescribed antibiotics.
So that's the clinic version of what happened. The human version of what happened is much more than that. Mr Hove's attention to patient care is second to none. He gave me his mobile number and was happy to take calls and reply to texts as any time regardless of working hours. He also came in on his day off at least twice that I know of especially to see me even though I wasn't a paying patient.
His explanations of my diagnosis and treatment were excellent, as was his unrelenting desire to provide the highest standard of care which he simply referred to as his duty. In my opinion he was above and beyond the level of most doctors I have come into contact with previously.
Thank you so much!
I had a telephone consultation with Mr Hove because of my own work commitments . He talked me through the procedure so I understood what would be happening, went through the consent forms and answered my questions. Mr Hove was clear in his explanation and allayed any anxieties I might have.
I had surgery on my left eye on Saturday and the right eye on Sunday. On Monday I had 20/20 vision.
On the day of the surgery Mr Hove introduced himself, went over the procedure again. He was reassuring throughout.
I would highly recommend Mr Hove , I am delighted with tesults. My left eye was done on the Saturday and the right one on the Sunday. On Monday I had 20/20 vision . The recovery is do very is different for everyone a
I had Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses, two weeks ago on the 21st and 22nd February 2018. Mr Mfazo Hove phoned me for a pre operation consultation and explained everything that I needed to know and answered any questions. I was quite nervous on the day of the first operation but needn't have been. Mr Hove was very calm and explained what was happening; the pre op sedation kept me nice and relaxed. I didn't feel a thing and my eye felt like it was closed but obviously it was open, a few bright lights and the job was done; 7 minutes I believe. My forehead was numb for a short while afterwards and by the next morning I could read a newspaper with no glasses and that was just the first eye. I've now got better than 20/20 vision and wished I'd had it done years ago so a big thank you to Mr Mfazo Hove and his team, an excellent job!
I had refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. The results are beyond my expectations as I expected my near vision to be slightly worse than it was before the op, in order that my far vision could be improved. I now have perfect vision, close up and at a distance! Truly life changing. Mfazo Hove was brilliant. Efficient, professional and charming. The operation was enjoyable - yes, really! Quick, no pain and perfect sight when the eye patch came off 4 hours later. I am now looking forward to a life without glasses or contact lenses which I've worn for 40 years. Thank you so much Mfazo.
I had my first lens replacement surgery on the 21st February with the second eye surgery booked for the 14th of this month , procedure was painless
Mr Hove was above all courteous and extremely informative. He explained the procedure with great detail and patience. Answered all questions thoroughly and filled me with confidence. The whole process was painless and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services. I had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses fitted in both eyes on consecutive days and the result is amazing!
I attended Shepard Bush clinic for my right and left eye to have multiple lenses treatment. I am so please with the results after only one day I was able to read without glasses in over 20 years. I was delighted with the service, the staff where very friendly and Dr Mfazo Hove put me very much at ease. He was telling me all the time what was happening. I would recommend this procedure to anyone, it has changed my life.
Mr Hove performed idesign intralase lasik on myself 4 weeks ago. Both eyes were done, procedure was painless. Was over so quickly, Mr Hove was very reassuring throughout the procedure. Recovery was around 6 hours. It's now 4 weeks later and my eyesight is perfect (no more glasses for me) So happy I really am and this is all thanks to you Mr Hove.
Had both of my eyes lasered by Dr Hove at the beginning of February and couldn't have wished for anyone better to do it. He was very calm and made me feel much less nervous pre-surgery which definitely helped. I was slightly scared about getting my eyes lasered but he explained everything very thoroughly and made it a very stress free experience.
I had been struggling with juggling between glasses, contact lenses, reading glasses and VDU glasses for sometime now and therefore after a thorough consultation I decided to opt for refractive lens exchange with multi focal lenses. I had the operation just over a month ago and I cannot believe how fantastic the results have been. Dr Hove performed the operation with incredible skill and expertise and I can not thank him more for giving me a life changing experience. Although the thought of the operation is daunting I can honestly say the it was quick and completely painless. My eyesight improved to better than 20/20 vision immediately after the removal of the dressing and the eyes recovered completely from the operation within one week. I would highly recommend Dr Hove because he is extremely skilled surgeon. Now the only glasses in need to wear are sunglasses.
I underwent design Intralase LASIK laser eye surgery almost four weeks ago now and could not be happier with the result. The procedure was completed so fast it was unbelievable and the recovery was so quick too - I was back to work two days later and even minor side effects like dry eyes and light sensitivity were fully resolved after a couple of weeks if that. My vision is now better than 20/20 and I no longer have the headaches or irritated eyes that I had with contact lenses. I'm so glad I had this done so early in life. The fantastic results aside, Mr Hove himself was exceptional. He was nothing but welcoming, transparent and professional. His expertise and the level of care provided truly inspired confidence and made me feel at ease approaching a procedure that I'd previously been very nervous about. He even offered a direct number for him along with a referral to this site to see genuine reviews for me from a source that is entirely independent and unbiased. Really drove the point home that his first priority is the patient. I'd recommend Mr Hove without hesitation, really could not have hoped for better. Thanks for the new vision!
fantastic surgeon and generally a great guy, very caring and informative.
he takes the time to make sure you know what the procedure is, the recovery time, how to help with the healing process etc etc.
Mr Hove even gave me his personal number to contact at anytime 24/7 in case i had any problems or concerns.
fantastic service from a fantastic surgeon.
I had the lasek treatment back in 2017 I was back to work within after 6 days and driving after 4.
best thing i ever did.
I undergo a Phacoemeulsification and monodical lens implant-only eye with surgeon Mfazo 2 weeks ago and I am really satisfied with the result. It's like coming from the dark to the light. I could not receive this treatment in Madagascar so was really delighted when Mr Mfazo agreed to treat me. I felt straight away at ease under his watch, He is very welcoming and professional. Thank you so much Mr Mfazo for my new vision
I’m extremely pleased with the results of my eye surgery and found Dr Hove to be very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend him.
I underwent refractive lens exchange surgery with multifocal lenses two weeks ago with Mr Hove. Having worn and struggled with varifocals for some time, I decided to bite the bullet and sort out my vision once and for all. As I was unsuitable for laser surgery, I agreed upon lens replacement. Although initially apprehensive, after my phone consultation with Mr Hove, I felt reassured that I had made the right decision. On the day of surgery I was very nervous, but needn't have been as Mr Hove and his team were excellent and the whole experience was swift and painless (especially after the sedative was administered). My left eye was done first, and was still blurry in the evening, but my vision was clear by the morning, when I went back for the following eye to be done. Vision in my right eye was good the same evening it was done, and when I returned the following day for my post op check, I was informed that all was well and my eyesight was almost 20/20. A week later the optometrist said I was now better than 20/20. Mr Hove gives everyone his personal mobile details, so you can contact him with any problems, which I did, as I was aware of a peripheral flickering. He reassured me this would settle down with time. My long distance vision is still not perfect, but good enough to drive, and hopefully will continue to improve. All in all I am very happy with my experience, so thank you Mr Hove and your team for giving me independence from spectacles.
I am so pleased with the services provided by Mr Mfazo Hove for the procedure for refractive lens exchange with multi focal lenses. I would highly recommended him as he made what seemed a scary procedure into a safe and thoughtful experience.
I had Refractive Lens exchange with Multifunctional lenses surgery on the 20th and 21st January and I can honestly say I'm so happy with the result it has changed my life and given me so much confidence with not having to wear glasses anymore. When I went back two weeks later I have 20/20 vision. The procedure is painless and Mr Hove is so professional in what he does and he explains everything to put you at ease. I would thoroughly recommend him
Lovely man. Made me feel very calm and at ease. I would have no problem in recommending him and Optical Express.
Well everything i read about this procedure was accurate and true you get the phone call
prior to the surgery or he will meet with you. its a very simple procedure what you read in the pack is a very good reflection of what takes place yes there are side affects and lots of glare but i would expect all this will settle down. but there is a vast improvement in vision
I have often thought about eye surgery but my opticians put me off. Feeling brave and fed up of varifocal glasses or contact lenses and reading glasses I made my first appointment for a consultation and it was decided that Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses would be my best option. Mr Mfazo Hove contacted me and carried out a telephone consultation, explaining all the pros and cons of the surgery and giving me his number incase I had any concerns or further questions, making me feel much happier and more confident with my decision. On my surgery day I was made to feel very at ease and the procedure was carried out very quickly with no discomfort or pain, and the greatest thing of all, was that I was able to see straight away, when I took the dressings off after 4 hours. I wish I had had this done a long time ago. The convenience is unbelievable, especially doing my animals on miserable wet days, when I needed windscreen wipers on my glasses!!
I had the Refractive Lens replacement procedure with Multi Focal Lenses.
Mr Hove was very informative about the procedure, explaining everything clearly before and after the surgery.
I was slightly anxious after I’d decided to go ahead with it , as people would make comments, such as, “No you shouldn’t muck around with your eyes”.
Well I’m glad to say I didn’t listen .
Mr Hove and his team are amazing, very thorough.
I had my right eye done on the Wednesday, the Left eye done the following day, and on Friday was driving.
The procedure itself is very quick and I had no pain at all !
If you are considering having this procedure, you couldn’t be in better hands.
This procedure is nothing short of a miracle.
I will forever, be grateful to Mr Hove and his team , for the gift of sight!!
I had refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses and I have to say that my journey through this has been excellent and trouble free all the staff were extremely helpful and kept me informed as to what was happening at every stage. The procedure itself was totally painless and finished much quicker than I had expected. The results have certainly been up to my expectations and I was legal to drive the day after I had my second eye done. I would advise anyone looking to have this procedure not to hold back because you maybe concerned about the procedure itself. Thank you to my surgeon Mr Mfazo Hove and the staff at White City.
I Found Mr Mfezo Hove to be an excellent surgeon. My eyesight after 16 days is very, very good. After looking at my pre-op scans and despite my age (77) he upgraded the type of lenses to be inserted in my eyes. His manner was caring, polite and very reassuring and I would recommend him without hesitation.
I had my natural lens replacement on both eyes two weeks ago. It’s quick and painless and I wish that I had it done years ago. I’m in my late 60s and I’m so pleased with the results, no more glasses or contact lens I can’t tell you just how good that feels. I’ve gained my confidence back and a new lease of life
I had a refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses 3 weeks ago at Westfield. I am delighted with the results which the OE ophthalmologist tells me are even better than expected for distance and close up vision. He also told that he has emailed Mr Hove to let him know his results are "outstanding". That a professional opinion from one who can compare results with peers. Mr Hove's personal style is centred, strong, approachable and relaxed - ideal for the job I would say so a role model. Tina Turner was playing "better than all the rest" in the operation room and he probably is! Also special mention for the sedation I received. I am someone that hates anything near my eyes so I was anxious about the procedure and flinching. I felt absolutely no pain at any time and the sedation actually made me feel good and (almost) able to enjoy the experience of this incredible opportunity. At 50 it can feel as if the body is on a one way street so it's good to know this needn't be the case. I am profoundly grateful and wish Mr Hove the very best. There is a lot of equipment measuring the eye and in the operating theatre but skill and experience is required too; from the whole team to get the best results possible.
Thank you Mfazo My vision is improving daily. It's truly amazing how simple the operation was. You were so honest and showed care on what was about to happen. Massive thank you
I had Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses surgery 2 weeks ago & I am thrilled with the outcome.My distance vision is already very good & I can read all but the very smallest print which I am told will gradually improve. I was a little apprehensive about having the surgery, in view of my age (69) & type 2 diabetes,but the phone conversation I had with Mr Hove beforehand set my mind at rest.The surgery was quick & painless & Mr Hove was very reassuring throughout.I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone considering this surgery. It is just marvellous not to wear glasses or contact lenses any more & I now wish I had done it earlier. Thank you so much Mfazo.
Following my recent Refractive lens exchange operation (multifocal lenses) I am very pleased to write a positive review of this surgeon. Whilst his skill in this procedure is very evident from the stunning results achieved, it is also worth mentioning the care he took in explaining everything and the lengths he took make sure I was comfortable and clear about the objective of the process. Thank you Mr. Hove and best wishes to your excellent team.
Possibly the very best medical experience I have ever had. My eye surgery went well and everything is perfect - what made it such a positive experience was Dr Hove's professional manner in explaining everything thoroughly. I recommend anyone thinking of having Lens replacement surgery to ask for Dr Hove to be their surgeon.
Had laser eye surgery just over a week ago. Mfazo carried out the surgery and initial consultation. I found him to be very warm, knowledgeable and professional. The decision to have one eye for distance and one for reading was a great option and I am glad it was offered and then carried out. The operation itself was much less of an ordeal than I was expecting and I am fully healed and enjoying no glasses or contact lenses. Would highly recommend Mfazo
I saw Dr Hove for idesign Intralase LASIK. He was polite, proffesional, friendly and calm throughout. I felt utterly at ease both during and after the procedure, he was happy to provide me with a note for work and gave me his personal number to call if I ever needed any assistance at all, very happy indeed with the brilliant job he did and will strongly recommend him to anyone else!
Coudln't have been happier, excellent service from an excellent doctor.
I had refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses. I had my left eye done on the Friday my right eye done on the Saturday went back on the Sunday morning and my sight was already better then 20/20 vision the whole process was a breeze I would recommend it to anybody the surgeon talked everything through with me I don’t know why I didn’t have it done years ago thank you mr mfazo hove.
Hi, I’m lauren and I recently had the idesign Intralase LASIK laser eye treatment! It is the best thing I have ever done. I have to admit I was a bit nervous on the day but Mr Hove kept me calm and made me have no worries! The procedure was completely painless and over in seconds!!! The next morning I was able to drive and felt fantastic. I could not recommend Mr Hove orhia treatment highly enough. thank you so much
I had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses surgery in Dec. I would like to thank Mr Hove for making me feel that I was in very safe hands. He answered any questions/concerns that I may have had, and the fact that he gave me his personal mobile was very reassuring. I would highly recommend Mr Hove if you are thinking of having any eye surgery procedure.
I had lens replacement surgery in December with Mr Hove and found the whole experience amazing. Mr Hove is a very friendly and skilled surgeon and is very happy to explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have. The procedure itself was totally painless and the results for me were instant. I have no problem recommending Mr Hove to family and friends. Thankyou Mr Hove and team.
I had Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses I was nervous to start with but Mr Mfazo Hove explained the procedure and put my mind at rest explaining the pros and cons of the lenses that I chosen. So far all is good I can now ride my motorcycle in the rain without getting steamed up. He also asked me to read some of the reviews of others before I go ahead and have the surgery which I had already done. My only regret is that I didn't do it earlier.
Had refractive lens exchange with multifold lenses Had left eye done on the 13th December and right eye on 14th. With Mr Mfazo Hove he was very good in explaining the operation and very gentle when do the operation It is now 2 weeks later and my sight is 20 20 vision my name is kelvin b and I am 56
I am 56 years old and had been wearing reading glasses since 2006. My eyesight had continued to deteriorate over the years making it difficult to do certain hobbies, even with glasses on. After discussing my options which included the possibility of a prescription for tri-focal spectacles I decided to look into Refractive Lens Exchange with multifocal lenses. Having decided on this procedure I was assured by the Optical Express team in Southampton that the surgeon carrying the operation was their best Ophthalmologist, Mr Mfazo Hove. Mr Hove telephoned me two weeks before the first operation to discuss the procedure and to see if I had any questions. Its at this stage that I almost backed out as I began to consider possible drawbacks. Mr Hove did not push me to go forward but simply asked me to Google him to view the reviews on his Doctify page, and said that if was still in any doubt about the procedure I could cancel it. It was through reading the reviews and doing a bit more research that convinced me to go forward with the surgery. It was a good decision! Mr Hove is both easy going and reassuringly professional and the eye surgery was in the end less scary than a visit to the dentist. After the initial anaesthetic, the surgery is over in minutes. The operating theatre experience is painless and the only distractions are the bleeps from the machinery and Mr Hove’s intriguing taste in music. I am now two weeks post-op and appreciating the experience of living in a non blurry world. Reading from a Kindle with even very small fonts is comfortable. The fainter text of a bible printed on fine paper is more of a challenge though still readable. but even this is improving. I am very thankful to Mr Hove for his expertise and confidence inspiring manner in carrying out the surgery. Iain D
Following Natural Lens Replacement I required Intralase LASIK enhancement : I had an appt with mr Hove . He explained procedure to me and I felt comfortable with him. He also gave his private number to contact him at any time after surgery: surgery was painless and swift- a little sore for a few hours afterwards. I have as yet been for first appt to check vision( this week) but all feels good so far. Would have no hesitation in recommending mr Hove . Eileen V
I had Lasik enhancement surgery with Mr. Hove in early December 2017 which was completely successful. I had a telephone consultation beforehand which he made easy and clear for me and answered all the questions I had. Before surgery I found him to be thorough and caring which put me at ease. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Hove as an eye surgeon. Suzanne W
I had a very successful procedure undertaken by Mr Hove. He was very warm, friendly and reassuring, explaining the process fully to me. I am delighted with the outcome. Many thanks to Mr Hove and Optical Express. Elaine F.
I am very happy with the treatment I received from Dr Hove. He made sure I knew exactly what my treatment would involve and went through it step by step - as I was quite nervous about the treatment, this really helped calm my nerves as it was the unknown that was worrying me the most. I would recommend Dr Hove to anyone who was thinking of having laser eye surgery! Lori A.
This was a life changing experience. My left eye has perfect vision, 6 weeks later on and my right eye may well need further tweaking. Mr Hove is an approachable, talented surgeon with excellent people skills who I would not hesitate to recommend to others. A very positive experience & thank you Mr Hove!
I would like to give a very big thank you to Mr Hove and his team for performing the Refractive lens exchange with multifocal lenses couple of weeks ago. The procedure went very smoothly and with very few initial after effects. It is great to have 20/20 vision again, even though I am still occasionally looking for my glasses, out of habit! The only thing I am having trouble with is the halos around lights which makes night time driving very restrictive, but it is slowly improving and hopefully will diminish further with time - but I am impatient! This has been a complete life change for me and I would recommend Mr Hove to anyone who is thinking of having this procedure - Thanks, once again
I couldn’t of been happier with Dr Hove. I was nervous going into the procedure but he put me at total ease from the start and explained the process carefully and in great detail.
I cannot thank Mr Hove enough.....when I went for my consult he made me aware of a different way my eyes could be done so that I would not need to wear reading glasses. He gave me an opportunity to try his idea with contact lenses prior to the surgery and then did the procedure. Throughout I felt reassured and I was extremely nervous at the time. The surgery has beena success apart from the fact that I may need to have a little "tweak" done so thank you very much Mr Hove. I have reccomended you in particular to friends that I know want the treatent done xxxx
My name is
gerry (female) I had lens replacement on the 13th and 14th of December 2017.which was done by Mr mfazo Hove. The treatment i received was very good the nurses were friendly and
Reassuring as was the anaesthetist ..the operationl was very quick and pain free it's still early days but so far so good.
I had my idesign intralase lasik dome last month and had an absolutely brilliant experience.
From the initial briefing with my surgeon Mr Hove, which I chose to do over the phone, I was kept informed of every step of the process. Everything was clearly explained and I had the time to process everything before the surgery a week later, just in case I wanted to back out.
The day of the surgery I chose to have it done in the morning. All the staff at the Harley street clinic were really nice and friendly. I had another set of checks done just to make sure nothing had been missed or changed since my initial screening. Then I had another chat with Mr Hove, who went through the entire procedure with me before the surgery.
I went in well prepared. You stay awake through the whole procedure and it’s good to know exactly what is happening. For every step, I was told what the team was doing, and was given a running countdown of time remaining per eye. The procedure per eye was max 5minutes. It wasn’t painful, just uncomfortable as pressure was applied to each eye.
At the end of the surgery, special eye drops were put in and I had already gained around 50% of the vision I would end up with!
I had a debriefing with the nurse and got Mr Hove’s personal number so I could contact him in case of any questions or emergencies post surgery. I got given bottles of medicated eye drops and explained how to use them and when. A month on, Ive got 20/20 in my right eye and 19/20 in my left and it’s a brilliant feeling being free from glasses!
I would highly recommend Mr Hove, brilliant surgeon with lots of experience, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable!
Thank you for doing such a great job with my eyes!!
Shabana Hussain- iDesign (Intralase Lasik)
I have been thinking about laser surgery for years and decided to finally get it done. When I had my telephone consultation with Mr Hove, he covered every little detail but I was still nervous. On the day of the procedure, Mr Hove met with me, made me feel very comfortable and explained what the procedure involved, how long it will roughly take and if I had any problems or questions after the procedure to call him at anytime. I had the iDesign (Intralase Lasik) and it was all done very quickly. The staff were all very helpful and professional. My eyes did hurt for a day and were very sore, but the next day I had no soreness or redness. It has only been three weeks and I have 20/20 vision. It was the best decision I have ever made, and having an excellent consultant like Mr Hove who actually cares about his patients, I am glad I finally got it done.
Mr Hove was very good. Explained the entire procedure and what was going to happen and I’ve had no problems since. My vision is great!
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
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
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
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.
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

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 !!!
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)

The service from initial consultation, to meeting all the staff working in the process was excellent.
I cannot recommend the team more highly.
The after care has been second to non, the only problem I have had is being able to find the time to visit on the recommended time scales for aftercare.
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.
Overall the care that I received from him made me very happy that he was my surgeon.
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 !!
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
Very professional service, all questions answered honestly. The procedure was painless, i particularly liked having music on during the surgery. It helped me relax. Just have to get used to my new eyes now, having worn glasses for 57 years. Thoroughly recommended
Having decided to have lens replacement I was contacted by Mr Hove to discuss the procedure. He was really informative, gave me all the pros and cons.
On the days if the surgery he was really supportive, explaining every procedure in detail. I can highly recommend Mr Hove.
My name is Bob Lakin from Staffordshire UK. Mr Hove replaced both my lenses recently. The result is brilliant. I have better than 20/20 vision. The operation was painless and very easy and all the staff at the Birmingham centre were top class. If you need your eyes sorted I would highly recommend Optical Express.
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.
