I month ago I had lens implant surgery in both eyes. The results are excellent and met my expectations of Julian Stevens' work. This expectation was based on laser corrective surgery performed by him 7 years previously. On both occasions the service , surgical experience and follow up have been first class. International standards of excellence with local service. thank you very much indeed.
Excellent treatment, highly professional and way better results than I anticipated. The team were very supportive throughout and Mr Stephens is nothing short of a miracle worker. I have recommended him many times over and wouldn't hesitate to agree with those who have identified him as one of the best eye surgeons in the world.
Couldn’t speak more highly of Mr Stevens and the service I received throughout the process. He was recommended to me by a number of people so I knew I was in good hands. He explained what surgery was best for me and his team were extremely helpful whenever I had questions or needed advice after surgery. Not having to worry about my contacts or glasses anymore has been amazing and I am beyond happy with my new vision! Thank you so much!
Great experience with this excellent surgeon. He treated my daughter some years ago and we are both delighted with the results. The whole team treated me with enormous care and special mention to the lovely anaesthetist who put me totally at ease.
Great experience ....... Was very nervous about the whole thing but there really was nothing to worry about. So happy with the result and wished I had had it done many years ago. Thank you Mr. Stevens and all the staff. I'm a very happy lady!
