I had a successful PRK operation for myopia on both eyes some 20 years ago at a different clinic. As my right eye started developing a bit of myopia again (only about -1.5), I went to see Dr Daya to see if I could be operated again and regain 20/20. He said it was no problem, he was very optimistic on his procedure's expected results, and he carried it out. The operation didn't go according to plans and left me severely long sighted (+3.5), as well as losing me the ability to read at short distance. I now have to wear one contact lens, whilst before I didn't. I went to see two well-established other professors (eye surgeons) for a second opinion and they both said it was madness to operate on me a second time for such a slight myopia, as it's very difficult to predict the outcome of a second laser eye operation. Daya never even apologised to me. He was clearly just interested in getting his thousands of pounds in fees for an operation that left me in a much worse state than before. I cannot recommend this doctor for either skills or trustworthiness.
I am a consultant ophthalmic surgeon. My father was diagnosed with cataracts requiring surgery. I had no hesitation in asking Sheraz Daya to take care of him. That is exactly what he did. From start to finish: faultless and everything I would have hoped for. Cannot recommend him highly enough.
Many thanks to Mr Daya for giving me a second chance with my vision. Couldn't have expected anything less from a world class Surgeon.
I was referred to Centre for Sight by my friend who had his laser eye treatment with Mr. Sheraz Daya. I had my laser eye surgery because it was getting difficult with the deteriorating vision and would had to always wear glasses. I eventually started wearing contact lens and obviously as I got older it was more difficult to get it out. I wore them since the time I was very young and it is difficult when it rains particularly as I was into a lot of sports especially golf. That’s why I decided to have the surgery. Overall the experience is fantastic. I did have a problem when I first came because the lady I spoke to, whom I never seen since she was not able to provide me with details. However, I was given all the information and my questions were answered in due course. I was always been made welcomed and very well looked after when I have been here. My patient journey was very smooth from the time of enquiry till post-operative care other than that hick up. When I phoned up between having the operation and coming in for follow up, someone helped me with the query. "Everyone at Centre for Sight has been very kind and helpful. The receptionists are very welcoming, I feel nice and comfortable." There is tea, coffee and biscuits for my husband and everyone is gentle, cheerful and charming. I have recommended Centre for Sight to my friends already. Thank you very much to Mr. Daya and everyone at Centre for Sight.
