Mr Saleh and his team are quite simply wonderful. He was recommended to me by a retired GP friend and it proved to be an excellent referral. I had two cataracts removed but Mr Saleh was able to do so much more than that in terms of correcting most of my astigmatism. I am now able to see better than I ever have before and its amazing. The service is professional but also personal. I was very well cared for and had time to discuss options. The procedures themselves and the aftercare were totally smooth and I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Saleh and his support team.
