Mrs Phillips, London – Cataract surgery

‘ The level of care was exceptional.

Saying it was value for money, would be understating the HIGH QUALITY of personal healthcare I received. Mr Romesh Angunawela paid attention every step of the way, and the follow-ups were regular and did a lot to reassure me.

He was patient and kind, and did not tire of my endless and often unrelated questions. He was fully committed to ensuring that I was fully satisfied and completely happy throughout the whole experience.
Dedicated, committed and very efficient. Thank you Mr. Romesh.

I will (and have) definitely recommend the practice.’

BC, Events organiser, London – Corneal collagen cross-linking for keratoconus

Very professional and friendly service, couldn’t do enough to help

LJ, Kent – LASIK laser eye surgery for long sight

I was long sighted at +4.75 and previously wore extended wear contact lenses until I developed an intolerance to them. My optometrist recommended this procedure at Moorfields Eye Hospital and I am very pleased that I did. Mr Amgunawela examined my eyes and identified blocked tear ducts, which may have contributed towards my previous eye problems. He treated this before undertaking the surgery. The procedure was quick and painless and my vision is now better then it was previously wearing contact lenses or glasses. My eyes healed quickly and I am delighted with the results.

FA, Retiree – Cataract surgery for very high long-sight

Dear Romesh,

I just wanted to let you know I completed my one mile swimathon today, in 48 minutes. I was so delighted that I could see, particularly as there were so many people in my lane, it was not an easy swim, but I raised a good amount of money so it was worth it.

This is the last day for my eye drops, it does not seem possible that just six weeks ago I had to wear glasses, my eyes feel better with every passing day. You are a fantastic consultant and I have told as many people as I can, that should they ever need to have their eyes treated you are the man.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

JS. London – Cataract surgery and combined DSAEK transplant surgery for Fuchs dystrophy

Dear Romesh,

I feel the need to write to you, expressing my heartfelt thanks for the successful conclusion of the surgery you have performed on me during the past months, even though mere words are not adequate for this expression.

In my 69th year, I am of a generation wherein this technology was not even dreamed about.

When I was 9 years old, I contracted diptheria. 4 other children in the same hospital and with the same disease, died. I was lucky enough to have had the new vaccination.

Today diptheria has been all but eradicated in developed countries, with only 2 cases being reported in the United States, so far, in the 21st Century.

My mother died at the age of 45, from a then inoperable heart condition, which now is being cured as a matter of course, on a daily, even hourly basis.

When I was young, if we heard of an elderly relative contracting cancer, we virtually wrote them off in our mind – the rate of cure being so low as to be almost non-existent.

Likewise, a man of my age with the eye condition which I had, would have been told by even the most eminent of eye specialists, ‘Listen, old man, you’re just unlucky. Be grateful for your 68 years of sight, and start learning to live without it.’

Thus it is, that you may now realise, why I was quite amazed when you thanked me recently for ‘sticking with you’, after the first 2 operations had not taken.

I was so grateful to be living in an age where this technology was available, that I had total faith in you, and could not even conceive of going elsewhere for treatment – even had I known where else to go!

You are indeed, a remarkable human being, Romesh, and I’m not just talking about your undoubted surgical skills. You are remarkable due to your genuine care and consideration for your patients, which goes above and far beyond your call of duty. And it is this quality which is virtually unique these days in the medical profession, and indeed in most other professions too.

In Biblical times, to be able to restore sight, was considered a miracle.

What you have done for me, I personally consider to be tantamount to a miracle, and I am eternally grateful for it.

Though I cannot conceive of a circumstance where you would require it, I nonetheless assure you that, should you ever need my written or oral endorsement, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I thank you most sincerely, and extend my kindest wishes and fondest regards.

JH, Printer, London – Wavefront LASIK eye surgery

As a printer my eyes are essential to my work, the results are fantastic. I have complete trust in him operating on my eyes.

Caroline B, Head Teacher, Kent – Multifocal lens implants and laser eye surgery for reading vision

Romesh is not only an amazing surgeon but also an extremely nice person. He makes you feel so at ease and takes such care in explaining everything and calling you personally after surgery. My eyes did not co operate at first but Romesh was so thorough and did not rest until he had found a solution.

His PA Sonia and Nat, his Optometrist are both super too, always so friendly and efficient.

Jake C, London – Laser and corneal collagen cross-linking for keratoconus

My optician initially mentioned that I may have Keratoconus in one eye but told me not to worry about it. However, upon researching this condition in more detail and feeling my eyes deteriorate further, I searched for someone who knew what they were talking about, and in Mr Angunawela I found the best out there. He diagnosed me with Keratoconus in both eyes and said I need cross-linking to stop this progressing. He was clear, professional and friendly from start to finish and, thus far, the operation has been completely successful. I would recommend him over anyone for this type of operation.

Mrs VB, London/Ghana – Cataract surgery with monofocal implants both eyes

First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Dr Angunawela and his team for their professionalism. From my experience, it ise to come across such wonderful team work. No words can describe my happiness with the results of my surgery which was indeed a miracle. All thanks to God almighty. I cannot describe to anybody to understand exactly what I was going through before the surgery.

I am very grateful and take this opportunity to show my appreciation

May the good Lord continue to grant you strength, good health and wisdom to help all others who may need your help

Good Luck and stay blessed always.

MF, Sales Consultant, London – LASIK laser eye surgery for long sight

For over 30 years I wore glasses and contact lenses with a long sighted prescription. I never thought I would be eligible for laser eye surgery and certainly couldn’t imagine not wearing glasses or lenses.

I decided to research the possibility of having laser eye surgery and looked to Moorfields and after reading reviews decided to make an appointment with Romesh.

I was over the moon, when after my consultation that I was told I was in fact suitable for Lasik.

The procedure itself was so much quicker than I thought it would be. Throughout Romesh talked me through what was happening and what to expect so at no point felt concerned. I completely trusted Romesh and he put me at ease. He answered all my questions and queries and managed my expectations honestly.

It really is amazing that after such a short procedure I am now lenses and glasses free! It has made such a difference to my everyday life, especially after wearing glasses from my early childhood.
