About

Mr Sheraz Daya is a British ophthalmologist best known for founding the Centre for Sight in 1996 and for his work in the use of stem-cell research during sight recovery surgery.

Mr Daya qualified from the National University of Ireland in 1984. He studied abroad and began his professional practice in 1993 when he returned to the UK. In 1995 Mr Daya was one of the first ophthalmologists to perform LASIK eye surgery in the UK. Mr Daya has developed new techniques in corneal transplant surgery including the integration of stemcell treatment to trigger ocular surface restoration. His 2005 trial helped forty people to partially or fully regain their previously impaired vision including Deborah Catlyn who was blind in both eyes.

In 1999, Mr Daya first began using and developing the techniques for a procedure which could potentially be used in over 1000 patients in the UK. He has also worked in the fields of anterior segment and keratorefractive surgery.

Mr Daya has performed a number of successful surgeries which have appeared in the news including the restoration of Katie Piper's sight in her left eye following an acid attack. The incident and surgery were the topic of the television news special Katie: The Science of Seeing Again, which aired on Channel 4 on the 7th of February 2012.

I wanted treatment for better health, which the results have achieved giving me a better life. I am very happy with my experience. I have seen several doctors before coming to the Centre for Sight, but have not seen any improvements of my Dry Eye condition until I started the treatment that Dr Espinosa at the Centre for Sight prescribed for me. I have also had IPL and Steroid injection treatments with Dr Daya which significantly improved the appearance of my eyes. I chose Centre for Sight, because I was not getting results with my previous doctors, so I researched online and after seeing good reviews for Centre for Sight, I decided to come here. I would recommend Centre for Sight to friends and family.

I wanted treatment to have better vision, without vision aids. The results have given me confidence and a better life. Better than expected. I have less headaches, which good. I don’t feel dizzy in the mornings as I can see, and love how I don't have to wear over 5 contact lenses a day now. I chose Centre for Sight because; of my husband’s research findings for the best and trusted Laser eye companies, which in fact you were the top! I would recommend Centre for Sight to friends and family.

I wanted treatment to have better vision and to resolve corneal distortion Keratoconus problems. The results have given me freedom, confidence and a better life. Mr Daya gave me a lot of confidence with conducting my DALK procedure, whilst other consultants only gave me a maximum chance of 60% success rate. Therefore, I was confident with Mr Daya's expertise, advice, confidence and projected good results. I chose Centre for Sight, because of Mr Daya's high reputation, particularly in complex cases like me. Also his confidence in conducting a complex procedure as mine is truly inspiring. High spec technology as well, all of which has given me great results as indicated by Mr Daya. I would recommend Centre for Sight to friends and family.

I wanted treatment to have better vision, which the results have achieved giving me; confidence, freedom and a better life.      I have scored 5 stars for excellence in technology, expertise and patient care. I conducted a great deal of research over several months.   My decision was based on Mr Daya's reputation, web visibility and experience in developing IOLs and fitting all the different types.   When I talked with Mr Daya, my decision was reinforced.  I would recommend Centre for Sight to friends and family.

I wanted treatment to have better vision, which the results have achieved giving me freedom, confidence and a better life.   Better than expected.    The changes have been gradual, starting with increased long range vision, moving onto increased peripheral vision.   This then resulted in an improvement in bodily cycles (breathing, nervous system etc).  Headaches gone and learning power increasing.    Seems to have also opened my 'third eye', the pineal gland, resulting in a greater sense of mindfulness and well-being.   I  chose Centre for Sight, because it has the best technology (most up to date).   Strong testimonials and confidence in their product.   Credentials and qualifications of practitioners.   I would recommend Centre for Sight to friends and family.

I am so glad I went to see Mr. Daya and had my lens replacement procedure on both eyes. I found all the staff kind and caring. I was nervous from the very beginning but found the experience on the first eye interesting but the second eye which was two days later amazing with all those colours. The only slight inconvenience were the multitude of eye drops needed for four weeks afterwards to prevent infection, about which Mr. Daya is very conscientious. Very reassuring. My eyesight now confirms the wonderful small details I had missed for a long time. Many thanks to Mr. Daya and his team.

Satisfied completely. I had to come back but there is a lot more clarity after few days of the procedure. My vision has a lot more clarity but I need to still be return to return back later in the year to complete the procedure. But everything went extremely well. The facility and the care is fantastic. And I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone who needs any kind of eye check-up, procedure or operation.
