Client Reviews

  • Mr Hamada performed several operations on my son's eyes last year and is now undertaking his continued review. He has built a very good relationship of trust with my 15 year old son and myself over this time - crucial with something as important as your child's eyes. I find him a caring and supportive person with an ability to deliver important information to a teenager in a reasoning and easy manner. I trust and respect Mr Hamada's professional skills and would happily recommend him

  • It is just over 4 week since Mr Hamada removed the cataract from my right eye. The clarity of vision in that eye is excellent, also a bit surprising! I would like to thank you very much for your care and attention.

  • I cannot thank and praise Mr Hamada enough for the fantastic vision he has given me after my secondary Iris Clip IOL surgery, which has given me 20/20 vision. I was extremely surprised at how easy Mr Hamada was to talk to. He put me at ease at every stage of the surgery and follow ups and assured me at every point. Mr Hamada has a very friendly approach and was absolutely brilliant. I would highly recommend Mr Hamada to anyone looking for an eye doctor.

  • I had an operation where a tumor was removed from my eye on the 14th July. Mr Hamada did the operation and they called him 'the master' during the operation and the gentleman certainly is. I didn't think that at the time when he was cutting, pressing and stitching my eye but I do now. It has been 4 weeks now and my eye has completely recovered, it wasn't cancer and the tumor has completely THANK YOU

  • My first meeting with Mr. S. Hamada put me at ease. He explained the procedure thoroughly and I was very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. I found him to be a very pleasant and caring surgeon.

  • Make sure you are thoroughly tested for any underlying problems BEFORE undergoing any surgery... As we found out to our cost .... ONLY use a trusted eye doctor... - Very Important .... Mr Samer Hamada is amongst the top in the profession- without doubt ...

  • Dr Hamada - He is a man who was born for this profession. As soon as we walked into the room you felt you had met a man who was gentle and kind. His demeanour was of a man who knew his trade. He speaks to you in a way you will understand. He explains exactly what is wrong and the way he will help fix it for you. We have a daughter with a very rare eye condition in children. She was 9 months when we met Dr Hamada - we were very frightened but this Dr took all the time and care to put us at ease. There was hope. With his care our daughter is managing a normal little life. An email or phone call and he is at the other end to make her comfortable. This Dr is in a league of his own and in this day and age they seem very few and far between. We can not thank him enough. (AUGUST 11TH 2015)

  • Mr Hamada was such a comfort whilst going through the procedure I felt completely at ease. (OCTOBER 10TH 2015)

  • I have recently had lens replacement on both eyes, this operation was carried out by Mr Samer Hamada, who I would and will recommend to anybody who is thinking of having LR. Mr Hamada's team (Harley Street) are very thorough and professional and make you feel at ease. I also felt in safe hands during the operation which lasts about 15 minutes. The following day I was able to see and read articles that in the past would have required glasses, and now 18 days later the results are excellent. I am glad I chose Mr Hamada. (OCTOBER 12TH 2015)

  • Thank you for what you have done for me!

  • I would like to thank you and your team for your time, a lot of effort and search for a possible solution to improve my vision.

  • A huge thank you for giving me back my sight. It is a truly amazing operation that you carried out and every morning when I awaken I shall be send you many blessings. You have a wonderful skill which benefits so many people.

  • Just a few words to let you know that I am very pleased with the results of the cataract operation. May I thank you most sincerely for your service, which I really appreciate.

  • I would like you to know how much I appreciate your care and skill, your devotion and hard work to help restore my eyesight. I think of you as someone for whom nothing is too much and I am truly blessed to have had you look after me.

  • I would just like to say thank you very much and to say how much I appreciated your understanding and kindness when you did my cataract operation.

  • As soon as I met Mr Hamada, I knew I was in safe hands. He is an expert in his field, and very reassuring. His work was impeccable, and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone wanting a professional, kindly, expert service.

  • I came all the way from the US to be evaluated by Mr. Samer Hamada who provided me with a world class experience. I was treated with technology that doesn't exist in the United States. My vision improved significantly since the surgery. Mr. Samer Hamada is definitely a Keratoconus expert.

  • I am glad to be with Mr. Hamada. I am glad to be examined by Mr Hamada who acts responsibly and professionally. I never had this experience before from a previous ophthalmologist. I am thankful to Mr. Hamada for the successful diagnosis and treatment of my case.

  • What a Consultant. Dr. Hamada is a man who was born for this profession. As soon as we walked into the room you felt that you had met a man who was gentle and kind. His demeanour was of a man who knew his trade. He speaks in a way that you will understand. He explains exactly what is wrong and the way he will help fix it for you.

  • Over 8 years ago I had cataract surgery at our local teaching hospital. Immediately afterwards I was photophobic and had no tears and constant infections and pain. The Drs at the hospital didn't know what to do with me even though one was a top professor. I begged for help I begged for tests and was told there were no tests and they didn't know what to do with me. I was becoming more disabled by the day. My husband and I were in a very dark place. We didn't know what to do.
