I am just recollecting how much you helped me by giving back the sight of my left eye about 4.5 years ago. I shall always be grateful. Having been without sight for 70 years in that eye I had become accustomed to managing without it, playing sport, driving etc. To get back sight after all that time was a real miracle.

I have not thanked you enough for the way you have helped with me being able to read again. I am going to miss our visits and also will miss having all those chats. I have just decided to read the information that you gave me about the cornea and see what a very complicated part of the eye it is.

I am writing to thank you so much for managing to keep mum’s eyesight going long enough for her to stay in her own home to the end, which she so wanted to do. Also for your kindness and consideration which you showed her in the years she was your patient. You see so many people each day but you still remember each one. Thanks again, it is a wonderful job you are doing!

My left eye which you operated on in April is brilliant. I cannot thank you enough, you corrected the first operation that went very wrong. I went to Frimley Park yesterday and she said the eye was really good and I can now have an eye test - Hooray. I can now see TV without glasses. You look even younger in your operations gown than your suit! You were really brilliant. Thank you very much indeed.

Just to say many thanks for the brilliant job you did on my eyes in Oct & Nov 2016. Everything is so much brighter and clearer now, I can see ‘True’ colours again. I only need glasses to read small print now. To have restored such good eyesight to a 92 year old should make you very proud!
