Mr Richard Scawn
29th June 2021
I had been discussing having my drooping eyelids done for a few years – the skin was coming over my eyes especially when reading, to the point that my eye would close & I’d fall asleep... and eye make-up was a waste of time – no eyelid. Eventually I plucked up courage to go ahead with it and my optician referred me to Richard Scawn.
When I first saw him, he completely put me at ease, he listened to me and advised me on how we could proceed. I had the surgery at the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth & the team looking after me there were excellent. Richard greeted me like an old friend, was very reassuring and made me feel confident I’d made a good decision.
Despite looking slightly battered after surgery (hardly surprising) the results now are brilliant. I smile whenever I look in the mirror and wish I’d had it done years ago. My only complaint is that I’ve now had to relearn to apply eye make-up as I now have 2 lovely eyelids to show off!!
As an additional bonus, Anna, Richard’s PA and nurse, is amazingly efficient and knowledgeable – it was a relief to be able to call her with questions, especially after surgery.
Finally, it is a pleasure to recommend Richard Scawn and of course Anna as they make a terrific team and have made me feel so much better about my appearance. If I needed any other ophthalmic treatment or advice, I would certainly contact them immediately.
