In October 2017 Mr Rehman was appointed as UK clinical lead for the Cataract and Vision correction services. 

Never one to rest on former achievements, he continues to devote much time and energy towards further innovation with particular emphasis on helping to encourage the adoption of new ideas wherever they have been clearly proven to help improve the lives of his patients.

Very happy with the outcome of my Lasek eye surgery and the treatment I received at Optegra eye hospital. Mr Rehman was an excellent consultant and put me at ease before and during surgery. He took the time to answer the many questions I had before going ahead during the consultation and after when I had thought of more things I needed to ask about-very reassuring. I preferred this hospital to other options on high street as they were very professional, and not in the slightest bit pushy. Thank you!

Perfect service, now perfect sight From start to finish the whole Optegra team were absolutely fantastic. I was initially hesitant about going through with laser eye surgery but now wish I'd done it years ago. You're given plenty of information for what to expect at every step of the way, so always feel clued up, and every staff member I met were incredibly friendly and helpful. The penny really dropped when I realised the monthly cost (with finance) was about the same as my contact lenses were costing, and I would only need one day off work. My surgeon Dr Shadow Rehman was perfect from start to finish, and I was very pleased to be able to meet him in the appointment before my surgery. His aftercare was also very thorough - I always felt in very safe hands. The surgery itself is certainly a strange experience, but is over very quickly and I could see the results immediately. I went home, slept overnight and woke up with better than 20-20 vision. No pain at any stage, just lots of eye drops for a couple of weeks. I can't recommend Optegra enough based on my experience in their London hospital. My eyes were both -9 when I went in and I'd been wearing glasses for 25 years. Life-changing doesn't go far enough! Thanks again to the whole team, and especially Dr Rehman.

I met Mr Rehman three times before I completed my surgery at the Leeds Optegra Clinic. Everyone explained things thoroughly to me, answered all my questions and made me confident that I had made the right choice. My surgery was almost pain free, just a bit of discomfort for a couple of days, I was able to see immediately and all of my follow up appointments were with the same team. Continuity of care and level of service is second to none. I am pleased with the outcome of my surgery and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Rehman and the Optegra Leeds team to anyone considering lasik eye surgery.

Life changing ... I had LASIK eye surgery with Mr Rehman at the Leeds Laser Centre and can honestly say it was the best decision I’ve ever made. My vision is incredible. I no longer need to worry about planning my lenses, the time they’ve been in for or the dryness when you fall asleep in them by accident! The staff at the Leeds clinic were superb, very friendly and informative, from the moment you have your first consultation, right through to the final sign off visit. The surgery was quick and painless. The new vision was instant and the aftercare was very clearly explained. The redness lasted longer than I expected, but it was all gone after a couple of months. I also experienced dryness in the eyes so drops were a regular part of my day for a couple of months. I can honestly say it is definitely worth it. I am in my mid 20s and advise anyone considering it to do it sooner rather than later. You will really feel the benefit and get the most out of the time without frames!

Absolutely fantastic service at Optegra, couldn't be happier with my vision and all of the advice received throughout the process. Not had too many issues since having my vision corrected, but any questions I have asked have been answered and I have not been made to feel silly about what I have asked. Looking back if I had to decide whether to go forward with this again, I would definitely do it. It is so worth being able to see without glasses or contacts.

From the outset Mr Rehman was kind and professional. I saw him a couple of weeks before the operation (complete lens replacement) and he explained in great detail, with diagrams, exactly what the operation entailed. He gave me plenty of time to ask questions. On the day, I first saw a nurse who took my blood pressure and offered me a sedative to relax me. Mr Rehman immediately put me at ease and talked me through every step in the procedure. I had both eyes done which took fifteen minutes per eye. It was a strange feeling, but I felt minimum discomfort and no pain. After two days I could read tiny print. The only side-effects were a slight blurring at the edges of the eye and a slight grittiness, which wore off over the next few days. I do see a halo around bright lights at night but this is a minor inconvenience. At my post-op assessment seven days later my sight was exceptional. No more glasses or contact lenses. I cannot recommend Mr Rehman and his nursing staff highly enough!

I have just had surgery on both of my eyes, and the result is fantastic. I have worn contact lenses since I was 17 and glasses since I was 7 as I had a lazy eye. It was brilliant to find out I could have replacement lenses as I had always been told as I had a lazy eye I couldn't have laser treatment etc. Mr Rehman the surgeon was kind, calm and very professional and I felt at ease as soon as he told me it was possible to have the operations. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Rehman and the team at Optegra, who were all very attentive and kind. A special thank you to the nurse who held my hand while I squeezed it, it must have hurt but she didn't complain and I felt better knowing she was there. The procedure was not painful but you do feel pressure now and then, but that is so worth it for the result at the end, Thanks also to Mr Rehmans PA Eileen Haynes she made my appointments to suit me and was very helpful throughout the process. Many thanks, Optegra, Bradford, Yorkshire.

I had a lens replacement in both eyes in December 2016 and I can only say it was a very positive experience. The 2 operations were one week apart, and in between the first eye recovered well. When the second eye was done, I could see well through the first eye and the second also recovered quickly. Two days later I was driving without glasses. In January, I still have a problem with computer screens and small print. I bought some reading glasses to help at work, while I wait to see how good my vision will get.

I have now had my 'new eyes' for 4 years. What a difference it makes . while all my friends are scrabbling for specs or squinting at menus on our Girls night out I am the only one that can read them with ease - even the tiny print !! What has triggered me to write this review 4 years on you may ask ? Two reasons . I recently developed a capsule on one of my lens. This needed attention which was dealt with literally in minutes . the whole process dealt with by Eileen and Mr Rehman and their efficient professional and friendly manner. I had also been aware at the beginning of the process the was an easily remedied possible side effect . However what it did do was highlight how much I had taken for granted how my much new lens replacements had enhanced my life . No looking for specs every 5 minutes no travelling on holiday with contact lenses and fluids and prescription sun specs etc . An added bonus whilst I initially was very aware it was a significant cost of having clarivue lenses what I have already saved in not purchasing specs and contacts has already paid for half the original cost. For any that like my were quite concerned about the actual procedure I can guarantee that for me it was fast absolutely pain free ( although a strange experience ) and instant results !! my only regret not having them done sooner!

6 weeks ago I underwent lens replacement surgery as my near , intermediary and distance vision had deteriorated to a point that it was impacting on all aspects of my life. I was frustrated with having to rely on glasses for VDU work, I needed varifocals for driving and watching television and could no longer wear my designer sunglasses. I also felt that my side vision was affected by glasses. I had the initial consultation with Dr Rehman in December and before I knew it the next week had my first eye surgery. As I am an anxious person I thought it best to get it done quick and not allow myself time to think about the procedure too much. I needn't have worried. I took the offer of a mild sedative to calm my nerves and the procedure was over in 15 minutes. It was uncomfortable but not painful. It is strange having short bursts of pressure on your eye but I never felt pain. Although I was a little overwhelmed after surgery I had gathered myself after 5 minutes and a cup of tea and as I knew what to expect for the second eye I was much calmer the next week. The results were instant. The vision in my eye was amazing even when my husband was driving me home after the surgery. I could read number plates! I never had a single issue post surgery. I administered my drops and bathed my eyes every day as advised. I never suffered any form of discomfort or gritty eyes which quite literally was amazing in the following 6 weeks. Would I get this done again knowing what I know now? DEFINETELY? Would I recommend this to someone else that was suffering the same eye issues I was? DEFINETELY? This has changed my life. I feel more confident and unrestricted by what I can do. Dr Rehman and his bedside manner and reassurance is fantastic and I hope he knows how grateful I am to him. If I could give anyone reading this review and thinking of the procedure but scared about what it entails some advice ,it would be just go for it. The results far outweigh any fears you may have and a consultation will put your mind at rest. Thank you Optegra staff and Dr Rehman for a professional service.

I chose to have the Refractory Surgery Package with Special Lens for both eyes and had this done in March of 2015. I was told that I may at some future date require laser capulotomy treatment. I was delighted at that time with the care and treatment and the outcome. On 19th January after an excellent consultation with Mr Shafic Rehman, I had the laser capululotomy treatment in my right eye. I am now back with excellent vision in this eye. The care I have again received from all staff at Optegra at Apperley Bridge - especially Mr Rehman and Eileen Haynes who is PA on behalf of him has been more than outstanding. This and the original surgery has more than made a difference to my vision on all counts and I extend a very very big thank you to all involved.

I am 76 yrs old and live alone in north yorkshire where personal mobility is vital. Over the last 2 years a cataract developed in my right eye which threatened my ability to drive as my left eye is affected by advanced stage macular degeneration. Feeling Somewhat apprehensive I consulted Mr Rehman at Optegra Hospital Yorkshire, the impression i received on arrival was of a very professional and efficient organisation. My eyes were examined by a team of nurses using a variety of equipment such as I had never seen before, and in th e subsequent consultation with Mr Rehman he explained clearly the treatment he would recommend. I agreed to have an "Interocular Toric Lens" inserted and underwent the operation exactly one week ago, the result has been little short of a miracle! I now only require glasses for reading, which is amazing as I have worn them since I was,at school. I would recommend Optegra and particularly Mr Rehman without hesitation.

After having very poor sight since age 11 and problems with contact lenses over the past two years, to have 6:6 sight and to no longer need reading glasses, is totally life changing. Three weeks in, I am noticing each day just how my life is being enhanced by replacement lens surgery. The Yorkshire clinic staff are extremely professional, well organised and caring, with the individual approach very refreshing and comforting. Mr Rehman, his PA Eileen and all the staff, take obvious professional pleasure in their work and my whole experience has been extremely positive.

Mr Rehman is an outstanding surgeon and his excellent team meant that my cataract surgery was highly successful. I have perfect reading and long distance vision. There was absolutely nothing to fear in the operation - it was over quickly, absolutely painless, and recovery time was remarkably short. (I had both eyes 'done' with one day apart.) It is wonderful to be able to swim, cycle and walk without specs. I can read the small print at work. All the team, including Eileen the PA, were extremely helpful and supportive.

Initially I was nervous about getting my eyes lasered. I had spoken to a number of people who had had the procedure and raved about it, which is why I pursued the idea of getting it done. However I wanted to find someone I could trust to do it. I can safely say I found that with Optegra. All the staff are so professional and caring. My nerves about the procedure went after my initial consultation because I completely trusted and had the utmost confidence in their capabilities. If you are thinking about getting your eyes lasered - do it! And use Optegra! You won't be disappointed with the service or the results.

I recently had the refractive lens replacement procedure at Optegra Yorkshire Eye Hospital after being referred to the clinic by my optician. I used to be -14.00 in glasses and -12.00 in contact lenses, so laser was not a viable option for me. The procedure itself took around 20 minutes and as soon as I sat up I was able to see. Within 24 hours I had 20/20 vision, and I could read the bottom line on the eyesight chart for the first time in my life. Two weeks after surgery I am on a course of eye drops to aid my recovery. At 25 years old, I am now able to see everything in high definition. Mr Rehman and his team put me at complete ease throughout the entire process and the aftercare service has been impeccable. I cannot recommend this procedure enough, I look forward to having perfect eyesight for the next 20 years!

Mr Rehman did refractive lens replacement (mono vision) for both my eyes at Manchester Optegra.

Immediately on meeting Mr Shafiq Rehman, at my first consultation, his boundless enthusiasm and confidence put me totally at ease. He explained the different procedures to me and was very sympathetic with my desire to have multifocal IOLs fitted using the new laser method. After my examination he was happy to proceed and recommended that both eyes could be done on the same day to which I readily agreed. On the day of the operation everything proceeded quickly and efficiently and I was back home in the early afternoon. 6 weeks of eye drops and two more consultations followed.. I now have better then 20 20 vision [distance and reading] in both eyes and the world is much brighter and 'dynamically' colourful than before.... I am now literally in a NEW world... I am very happy with the result and have, so far, had only very, very minor side affects. I would certainly recommend Mr Shafiq Rehman and Optegra...

A very efficient process from start to finish. I had attended an information event at The Apperly Bridge branch, then attended the Leeds branch for the eye measurements and surgery. I was assessed thoroughly and very accurately. The laser eye surgeon performing the Lasik procedure was outstanding from start to finish. I was extremely nervous, Mr Rehman put me at ease immediately as he has a very professional and calm disposition. He was so precise in what he said would happen, and what did happen. He was very gentle which helped my nerves during this process, resulting in a painless experience, with better sight than I had previously from glasses and contact lenses. I also appreciated the professionalism, and how at ease I felt, thanks to Zoe in reception.

I have recently had lens replacement at the Yorkshire Eye Hospital. The procedure was carried out on both eyes at the same time. I am now completely free of glasses and overwhelmed at the immediate excellent result. From start to finish I was totally relaxed and suffered no stress or discomfort whatsoever. All thanks to Mr. Rehman. He was friendly, gentle, informative and meticulous to detail throughout every step of the process. In addition all members of hospital staff contributed to an extremely comfortable atmosphere. I recommend lens replacement by Mr. Rehman 110% and will sing his praises to the world! I truly wish I had done this years ago.

I had Refractive Lens Exchange at Optegra ( Yorkshire Eye Clinic) and would recommend it without reservation. I attended one of the Open Evenings which was most informative and reassuring. The whole process was straightforward thanks to the excellent staff. I found all the staff to be friendly and efficient. I had total confidence in Mr Rehman, who explained everything clearly. I liked his calm, professional but friendly manner. The after care is excellent too. So glad I chose to go ahead. Having worn glasses since I was 13 and contact lenses for 40 years , I don’t need them anymore!!

I received lens replacement surgery by Mr Rehman at the Yorkshire Eye Hospital. Prior to surgery I was -11.5 distance and +2 for reading. I attended a consultation where a range of tests were carried out. I opted to have both lenses replaced at once, the surgery took around 40 minutes and was pain free. At my follow up appointment I was delighted to be told I had "better than 20/20 for distance and close range". It is now 2.5 weeks since the surgery and I am extremely pleased with the result, I am now glasses free. I found Mr Rehman and his team thoroughly professional and they put me at ease throughout each part of the process. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

I'm now just short of two weeks since lens replacement surgery. I would recommend Yorkshire Optegra and Mr Rehman to anyone. I had both eyes done at the same time. The whole procedure took about 30-40 minutes and has literally changed my life. I no longer need to fuddle about for my specs each morning. I don't need specs for anything, although close reading (eg a book) is more comfy with 1.5 readers off the shelf. I had a high degree of astigmatism and have worn specs since the age of 18 (I'm 55 now). Mr Rehman is so lovely during the operation, he speaks to you all the time and explains what he is doing. It's totally painless and I promise you, there is nothing at all to worry about. The results are mind blowing. I had a totally positive experience from start to finish.

I attended an open evening 2 years ago which I would highly recommend and had a consultation shortly after. At the time I decided it was too much money to justify the surgery and got a new kitchen instead! I also had a consultation with another large company at the time and although cheaper I felt it would be worth paying extra with optegra as they were more professional, reassuring and had better reviews. Financially I found myself able to re-consider and attended a consultation again. Re-assured I went ahead. Dr Rehman and his team at Bradford are re-assuring and informative. They are thorough and professional. Everything has gone smoothly and I felt if I had any problems I have plenty of people to contact for aftercare (not that I needed anything other than my routine follow ups as all went so well). The surgery itself was strange but not painful. The recovery quick. Yes, some slight inconvenience with seeing initiiallly but temporary and worth it for the end result. To wake up everyday and see without having to think glasses is fabulous. I could see an icicle on a house 2 doors down only 2 days after one eye was done. I have been out walking in the rain and could still. My glasses no longer steam up when I come into a warm house from the cold. It’s more convenient at work. I feel more confident to take my son swimming as will be able to watch for him (and not watch the wrong child like I once did). It has opened so many doors to make life easier. I would definitely recommend this to the family. My only regret.....not doing it 2 years ago.....I moved house and no longer have the kitchen i got instead!

Eight days ago my eyesight was transformed by Mr Rehman and lens replacement surgery at Optegra’s Manchester clinic. I had both eyes done at the same time and was only able to consider this because of the confidence I had in Mr Rehman and the high standards at the clinic. The surgery was a bit strange but not in the least painful and was completed in about 45 minutes. Mr Rehman kept me aware of what was happening and reassured me throughout. Nurses, Optometrists and reception staff were all helpful and provide a totally professional service. I had my first check up yesterday with excellent results but was not surprised as I have not experienced any negative after effects. I can now read, drive, thread a needle etc without contacts/glasses. I cannot praise Optegra and all the staff highly enough. One final wish would be for Optegra to open clinics to sort out hearing loss which would make life perfect!

After two years of looking into Refractive Lens Replacement I decided on OPTEGRA MANCHESTER. Within minutes of speaking to Mr Rehman one of the consultants I felt totally at ease with the procedure. It was explained in full, no pressure to book on the day in fact quite the opposite. We then saw Barry Thomson Mr Rehmans secretary and he explained all the finance options which are fabulous at 0% interest, the booking procedure and he answered any questions that we had either forgotten to ask the consultant or thought they were silly or too trivial to ask but No nothing is too much trouble for Optegra Manchester. It has now been one week since surgery on both eyes...It's a miracle to be able to see first thing in the morning, life looks clearer and brighter definitely 100% recommend this procedure as Mr Rehman says that its still early days and my eyes will improve even more!!!. In theatre Mr Rehman was so professional, reassuring and calming I could of lay there for hours but alas it only took less than half an hour for both eyes to be done.. this was a dream to have done. What was I worried about?!! I never let anyone near my eyes unless it is absolutely necessary so I was a nervous patient until Mr Rehman began his magic. Mr Rehman, Barry, the nursing staff, the receptionists in fact everyone we met during this process gets 5 stars from us. A great BIG THANK YOU to you all.

Just over a month after I had lasek at Optegra and I will wake up every morning thinking wow. Before I went to Optegra I did try Optical Express just because it was closer to me but, I wasn't impressed with Optical Express at all and I ended up not going through with the surgery there. Within minutes of stepping into Optegra and meeting Mr Rehman I could tell straight away that Optegra was going to be a much better choice. I was told to expect some pain after lasek and that it is totally normal but, I had no pain whatsoever. The whole experience went perfectly. I would definitely recommend Optegra.

I was recommended lens replacement by two friends, as it turned out both had been to the Yorkshire clinic. They also both had Mr Rahman perform their surgery. I contacted Eileen Haynes, Mr Rehmans PA and booked a consultation. On meeting the staff and Mr Rahman I had no reservations on going ahead with the operations on both eyes. The operations were done separately within a week of each other. I can honesty say that the whole process was painless and not at all uncomfortable. I couldn't believe the difference my sight was the very next day on eye one, I am thrilled with my new eyes !!! I couldn't praise Mr Rahman enough... I recommended to a friend who closely followed my progress and he has now booked an appointment.

I was made aware by my optician that I was starting with cataracts in both eyes. Mr Rehman at Optegra Eye Hospital Yorkshire confirmed that they were in the very early stage of forming and could be left safely until a few more years had passed should I wish to do so. I was hoping to do away with the need for glasses for near sight correction. His tests also proved that my near vision could indeed be improved. His recommendation of Refractive Lens Replacement to both eyes would also remove the cataracts and any future threat of them permanently and improve my near vision. I decided to have the operations now rather than wait. Mr Rehman did my left eye first then my right a week later, it is now two weeks after that. I am completely satisfied with the outcome to date I do not now need my glasses most of the time. I cannot thank Mr Rehman, his PA Eileen Hayes and the staff at the hospital enough. Their care and professionalism. is outstanding and I can recommend them unreservedly.

I had lens replacement about five years ago. Everything went smoothly and I have nothing but praise for the staff and Mr Rehman at Optegra. Over the last six months I had noticed that my sight wasn't as good as it was. I made an appointment with my optician who confirmed that my vision wasn't as good so I made an appointment with Mr Rehman. I was seen within a short time, and it seemed that I was suffering from Posteria Capsular Opacification. I was treated on the day (painless laser treatment) and now my vision is back to normal. Thank you to Mr Rehman, the staff at Optegra who were so efficient and kind.

I had a very high prescription of +12. I had been exploring and researching lens replacement for over a year but was reluctant to move forward. Mr Rehman was recommended to me and I arranged an initial consultation. Mr Rehman advised that due to the high prescription needs, a mono lens would be the most suitable. I was made aware that I would still need off the shelf reading glasses and was able to make a very informed decision. I required x 2 lens in my left eye as the prescription was too high at +12 for just 1 lens. This did make the surgical intervention a more difficult and lengthy process but this was very well managed by Mr Rehman and the team. The right eye requirement was slightly less at +11 therefore only required only x 1 lens which all went very much to plan. I am just over 2 weeks post op and am extremely pleased to have such a positive outcome. I feel this is entirely due to Mr Rehman's specialist knowledge, skills and expertise in this area, especially with regards to proactively managing people with very high prescription needs. Thank you to all.

I just can’t believe that the result of perfect vision was instant.

I have recently had lens replacement which was undertaken by Mr Rehman at the Optegra Clinic in Apperley Bridge, Bradford. I am amazed at the difference this has made. I had the lenses replaced in each eye within five days of each other, however, as soon as I removed the eye patch (the following morning) after the first procedure I no longer needed to use my glasses. I was hoping that my sight would be as good without glasses as it was with them, however, my expectations have been surpassed and my sight is now much better than whilst using my glasses. I was treated very kindly and reassured the whole way through the process. The procedure took only 15 minutes and was painless. I cannot recommend Mr Rehman and his staff too highly.

I recently had LASEK Eye Surgery with Optegra and I am very pleased with the outcome and my experience. I attended an open evening where information was provided on many different surgeries. All the attendees were much older than myself so I will say this was very much orientated around lens replacement surgery, rather than one which would suit myself, as I am younger (20). However, once all the questions had been asked I managed to speak to Dr Rehman and ask about a surgery more suitable for myself. In my consultation, the surgery appropriate for me was fully explained and all my questions were answered. In the time between my consultation and the date of my surgery Eileen Haynes was extremely helpful with any queries I had and sorting all paperwork for me. On the day of my surgery, all the staff at the Leeds clinic were super welcoming and friendly. They made me feel very at ease and comfortable. The surgery was very quick, relaxed and Dr Rehman was amazing. The only confusion for myself is I was lead to believe I was allowed someone in the surgery room with me to help put me at ease however this was not the case, I went into the room before surgery, and during surgery alone. This did put me slightly on edge as I was nervous and would of liked my mum to be with me, however I understood the circumstances. After surgery all the nurses were so caring and very kind towards me. All aftercare was explained and that was it! The first week after surgery was very uncomfortable (which was to be expected) and my vision was not great. However this improved over time and now I can confidently say getting LASEK Eye Surgery was the best decision I ever made.

As a keen golfer, The improvement it made to my gold game was almost instant- boring golf stuff hitting a 92 in my first competition after surgery,winning the competition with a net score of 64! I opted for mono-vision, which means no use of reading glasses for my VDU work. The team in Leeds made a nervous man feel relaxed and excited about the treatment, and Mr Rehman was a consummate professional (even when my large nose got in the way of equipment).

The initial consultation was thorough and they check for dry eyes which another provider I visited did not check.

I went for the free assessment to the Bradford Eye Clinic of Optegra to establish whether laser treatment could be performed on my eyes. As my sight was becoming worse as each month went by.  After both my eyes were inspected and assessed by Mr Rehman and given the confidence by Mr Rehman. That telescopic implants would be the answer and that both eyes could be done at the same time. I agreed to go ahead and have the treatment performed.  I was assured that I would be able to see short and long distance without the aid of spectacles. Which had become the bairn of my life..  I had the treatment on Tuesday 2nd of October and the following day I was able to see with both eyes and without the aid of spectacle. The treatment performed also prevents me from having cataracts. I can not praise Mr Rehman enough for giving me a new lease of life and seeing things without having to reach for my glasses.  Today 9th October 2018 I went for my checkup and was informed that everything had gone well and was pleased with the condition of my eyes. Absolutely brilliant. Do not hesitate and Mr Rehman is a must to see.

Right from the first consultation for cataract surgery I was impressed by the caring attitide of Mr Rehman who was supportive throughout the whole of the procedure. I have recommended him to my friends and family. I was delighted, even after the first eye operation, at the lovely fresh colours, especially the greens of the grass and foliage. After the second operation, I had superb visions and when my eye tests came around only weeks later I was told my long sight was 20/20. You can imagine after wearing glasses with Varifocal lenses for at least 20 years how it felt to see distant objects and especially to drive without glasses. Imagine how cheap it is to buy off the shelf shades and reading glasses and choose up to date styles without it costing a fortune.

After very thorough tests and eye examinations my one worry was that my eyes would not be suitable for Clarivu, but the vision correction consultant Mr Rehman soon put me to ease and said I was a sutiable candidate. He explained all the different treatments I could have to my son and I, and after we had asked all the questions we wanted answering and on receiving reassuring answers from Mr Rehman, I elected to go ahead with the procedure. On my first appointment which was for my left eye the staff were very reassuring and professional and they and Mr Rehman guided me through the procedure which only took 20 minutes and was completely painless. The results were immediate, everything was so pin sharp, colourful and bright. A week later I had my right eye done and unlike my left eye, my vision was a little fuzzy for a couple of days. I telephoned Optegra and was told that this was not uncommon and it would clear, which was indeed the case. Three months later my eyesight is fantastic, I can read the telephone directory without any help, can thread a needle, and have taken up dressmaking again, these are things I haven't been able to do for years, my husband says Ive got teenage eyes.I would recommend Mr Rehman, his team and all at the Yorkshire Eye Hospital for their care, professionalism and expertise in this procedure, and I would suggest to anyone thinking about having Clarivu that they should go ahead.

I would highly recommend Mr Rehman as the consultant to look after eye health to anyone considering surgery. From the initial appointment he took the time to explain both the risks versus the benefits of my surgery and at no time did he try to pressureise me into having the surgery done. After surgery for an anterior chamber implant 11 years previously by another surgeon, I was facing the prospect of complications with both my lens and cornea and an operation was a frightening prospect. Mr Rehman completely put my mind at ease and I chose to put my faith in his skills expecting a positive outcome. his care during the op and afterwards had been amazing. Thank you very much.

Firstly, I would like to say how great all the staff were and how stress free the whole process was prior to the treatment I could not get out of bed without the aid of my glasses. I was hesitant to try anything involved jumping around or going underwater. In the summer it drove me nuts to be constantly changing over to sunglasses. I tried lenses but found them irritating and somewhat uncomfortable. The treatment was so quick and for me totally pain-free. I was really quite shocked because I just expected some discomfort at least. Two months in and it is fantastic. No regrets. Thank you

A big big thank you to Mr Rehman for giving me my "new eyes" as i now like to call them. Prior to my procedure my sight was so poor I was totally reliant on on glasses and contact lenses, but for me the result is a dream come true. Totally amazing and completely free from glasses and lenses. The whole team at Optegra are both friendly and professional and the procedure was short and painless.I would highly recommend the Yorkshire Eye Hospital, in fact I already have done. Anyone considering Clarivu, I would say book your no obligation consultation immediately, I feel sure you will be glad that you did. My only regret is that I wish I had done it sooner.

My care under Mr Rehman and his team was excellent. Clarivu had improved my vision greatly and my ability to read and do other close work has improved enormously. my perception of colour and form is better than I can remember. I was nervous prior to treatment but everything was done in such a professional manner that my fears were unnecessary. Excellent treatment and great results. Thankyou

Lets look back, before my Clarivu treatment my eyes were deteriorating rapidly. I used contact lenses daily and glasses as well for reading. I couldn't read the newspapers at all without contact lenses and glasses. The treatment wow! beyond my wildest dreams. I can now read the smallest print, even the smallest n4 size. It's Amazing. My treatment was different to my expectations, in the fact that I felt no pain at all during the operation. There was a little discomfort afterwards, but by the morning it had gone. The Theatre staff were absolutely fabulous throughout. Very caring, considerate and totally dedicated to me and my Clarivu treatment. Thank you very much Mr Rehman and all the staff for giving me my confidence back and my amazing vision.

I had lots of questions and everything was openly discussed with me. I followed up with even more questions via email which were replied to. I was given a realistic explanation of the expected outcome. Even though I was still nervous, I had done my research and decided to go ahead. So far, the results have been very good. On the journey down, I needed reading glasses and on the way back, I didn’t. I was given the option of different lenses as I am an artist and need to observe images at close and middle distance. I followed the advice and am able to see easily to paint. I was told that colours may appear brighter and that has been the case so I am needing to adjust to that. I also see haloes around lights at night but even if this persists, the fact I can see without glasses outweighs other changes

a few weeks ago I was sat here reading the reviews on clarivu along with the compliments of Mr Rehman and the staff at he Optegra. I can only give the highest regards to all concerned after taking the decision to have the Clarivu treatment. The procedure was explained in detail with all the answers to my questions. Mr Rehman has all the time in the world for his patients, with an excellent aftercare approach. Before my treatment even with contact lenses or glasses I had poor vision and was unable to read. News papers , tv, texts, the simple day to day issues. After the operation and only a few days later my vision is the best I have had for years, this has given me some quality in live that has been missing, once again able to read menus.papers, books and go about my day to day business normally.The treatment is painless and certainly nothing to worry about and over in about 15-20 minutes your care on arrival and during the treatment is excellent. Just think, the day after your first eye you will be able to see again.Thank you all concerned.

fantastic, marvellous, amazing, brilliant, I honestly could go on, and still not find enough words to describe how it feels to be glasses-free. The treatment was pain free, I had no problems and for the sake of 15-20 minutes for the procedure to take place was fantastic. Mr Rehman and his staff are wonderful, they care about what they do and it shows in the care and attention they give you. Thank you.

Prior to the Lens replacement I was using glasses for both near & far vision. I was very concerned I was gambling with my eyesight however after discussing with a colleague who had had the replacement twelve months previous it convinced me to proceed. I had my second eye lens replaced two weeks ago & can't believe the improvement it has made. Walking at the weekend was a different experience I could see ranges of hills I never seen previously from different viewpoints. Mr Rehman was so helpful & explained the procedure correctly, no surprises!

A really professional service. I was treated as an individual from the start. Mr Rehman discusses the treatment and answered all of my questions and couldn't have been more helpful. Before treatment, I needed glasses for reading, computer work and driving. Now I can order a meal in a restaurant, read a magazine or book, use the computer, totally free of glasses. It has now made such a difference. I just need sunglasses now when we go on holiday. Everybody has efficient and helpful from start to finish. I would have no hesitation in recommending to friends, family acquaintances.

My initial approach to Optegra in connection with cataracts surgery was made on the recommendation of my optometrist.The arrangements for an appointment with Mr Rehman were quickly and efficiently made. He confirmed that surgery was appropriate in respect of both left and right eyes. and he explained carefully and in detail, the procedure, timescale , expected benefits etc. Although initially apprehensive I was reassured by his helpful and open response to my questions. Arrangements were therefore made for the procedure to take place. Because of the prior discussions with Mr Rehman, there were no significant surprises with the actual treatment and the follow-up care was excellent with instant and helpful responses If I had any queries. I am delighted with the outcome. The world through my new eyes is a much brighter place. I am sincerely grateful to Mr Rehman and the whole Optegra team who on all my visits have been welcoming and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend you to my family and friends. Thank you.

I have worn specs/contacts all my live. Before treatment I could no longer wear my contacts due to eye changes and had resorted to wearing Bifocals for some time. It was soon apparent how much this compromised my life. The treatment and care I received at Optegra was the first rate. Mr Rehman fully explained the procedure/expectations beforehand and I was entirely confident and reassured. Following Clarivu treament/both eyes, I am now specs and contacts free. Infact my results have been entirely life changing. For the first time in my life, I can see properly. I can only describe this experience as miraculous.I am amazed and delighted in equal measure. Mr Rehman and his team are highyl professional. The treament itself is no scary than a routine trip to the dentist. Being able to see well have transformed my life

Mr Rehman is very professional and approachable. He explained carefully the procedure and always made sure I understood what was going to happen. The accompanying literature concerning lens replacement surgery was straightforward and easy to understand. My questions were answered and I felt I was given plenty of opportunity to discuss the procedure fully before I decided to go ahead. Post operative care is carefully explained with concise written information to take away and this also explains the drops needed and the do’s and don’ts For the weeks following lens replacement surgery. I felt confident having this procedure under the care of Mr Rehman and would recommend him to anyone considering lens replacement surgery.

Clarivu is simply one of the best things I have ever done, and being able to dispense with glasses is a dream come true. In the past, despite my best efforts, I have never had a pair of glasses that have fitted comfortably, even after choosing lightweight frames and lenses. Although being aware that Clarivu might be an option for me, I was quite anxious about the procedure, however after a consultation with Mr Rehman I felt confident and happy to go ahead with the treatment. The surgery itself was calm and relaxed and the nursing staff all extremely reassuring. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Clarivu and last but not least I wanted to say a big Thank you to Mr Rehman and all his team.

Since having the Clarivu treatment in October, I have not worn my glasses or even thought about them. Hiking in the rain had been a problem because I was trying to see through raindrops on my glasses or they were frequently steamed up in bad weather. Not any more. Now I can map read without glasses. I can read anything without glasses even the small print on price tags in clothes shops. The world looks brighter and I can see clearly into the far distance. I don't have to worry about losing my glasses when travelling in and out of different countries or breaking them in a place where it would be impossible to get them repaired. The pretreatment consultation was informative and thorough. Throughout the treatment which only lasted about 15 minutes I felt reassured by caring , confident and professional staff. I didnt feel nervous because Mr Rehman and his team made me feel entirely at ease before and during the treatment.I was surprised at the lack of discomfort during the procedure there were no unpleasant moment during or after the treatment. I would recommend this treatment by Mr Rehman and his team to members of my famiy and friends as a solution to finding difficulties with wearing glasses and solving the problem of cataracts. Thank you so much.

Its fantastic not to have to rely on glasses. I dont have to remember to make sure I have then when I go out. My close vision is fantastic. I like to do practical work and can even thread a needle! I feel more confident (being a walker) i can approach steps without having to remove my glasses. I used to take them off when talking to people. A generally pleasant and successful experience.

having previously had never damage and some loss of vision in one eye, i was nervous about having any surgery. After extensive research, I found that Optegra was the best chance I had at having better sight. I was not disappointed. Everything was 1st class all the way from the surgeon, to the staff and the hospital itself. The surgery itself is nothing to be afraid of you hardly feel a thing. The results have been bettered, my expectations, things are clearer, brighter and colours more vivid. Its the best investment ive ever made. To sum it up in one word. OUTSTANDING! (keep up the good work)

before the treatment, my vision was becoming more and more cloudy.so much that I felt it might affect my driving. After the procedure, my eyes were even better than they have been with contact lenses, Which I had for 40 years. Things are brighter, clearer and a lot easier. I spent 15 minutes for each operation which soon passed. Although I wore an eye patch for the first day, I could even detect how my vision had improved. The eye drops were simple to apply for about 4 weeks after each procedure. I would have no hesitation in recommending this treatment. Mr Rehman and his team were courteous, efficient and experienced.I am ever so grateful for their efforts.

When I started investigating this surgery, I found the Optegra Yorkshire Eye Hospital to be far the most courteous, informed and personal on the phone. On my first visit, Eileen Mr Rehman's secretary was extremely pleasant in explaining what would happen, as were the staff who carried out many sophisticated tests on state of the art equipment, which resulted in a detailed personalised map of my eyes. When I met Mr Rehman, he explained the procedures and answered all my questions fully, so that with is guidance I was able to decide which procedure to undergo. On the day of the operation again all staff were professional but also with the human touch, chatting to relieve tension and a nervous handheld. This is so important. My eyesight is much much improved I was delighted yesterday with the fact that I threaded at my first attempt in dim light. Such freedom. Thank you so much Mr Rehman.

Dear Mr Rehman, I would like to thank you and your team for your skill and expertise regarding my recent Clarivue lens replacements.I have been very short-sighted since I was in my early teens and as high prescription glasses were extremely thick rimmed in the 1960's, I would only wear my glasses when I was in school or working. I progressed to hard contact lenses when I was 19 but there were many difficulties, as the adjustment from lenses to glasses was at least 24 hours so consequently, I wore my lenses all the time and regularly suffered with sore eyes. For the last 20 years, I have used soft contact lenses and alternated between glasses and lenses. However three years ago I developed cataracts but one eye was much worse than the other. After a discussion with my optician, I was advised to arrange a consultation at Optegra. I am so glad I did. The procedure was at my convenience and was uncomfortable but not painful.I was advised care and advise prior to the operation care during the operation and care and reassurance afterwards. My eyesight is amazing and the clarity and colours are wonderful. Prior to the operation I was unable to recognise people in the distance and was constantly asking my husband to tell me who I was waving to. I now recognise them first. Thank you so much.

Dear Mr Rehman and all that worked at Optegra. Two days after the second eye operation and here I am with better eyesight I have ever had in my life. Glasses and contact lenses are literally no comparison. I wanted just to say Thank you for choosing the career that you did. Blessing me with perfect eyesight and for the superb facility, you run at Optegra. It feels alien to go bed with perfect vision as I feel I should be taking out my contacts. Thank you Mr Rehma.
