How do I choose the best eye surgeon in London?


When considering eye surgery, it’s really important to choose someone you trust. If I was looking for an eye doctor, I’ll look for the following:

  • What is their experience?
  • What kind of skill sets they have?
  • What sort of surgeries they do?
  • How many surgeries have they done?

I want to make sure that this surgeon is safe. I would be interested to know their outcomes; if they audit their results and if I can ask them about what their success rate is, complication rate and how often they look back at their results…

Finally, I’ll be considering patients and colleagues feedback. There are various ways to do this. You could ask the surgeon directly, or you could do your own research.

There are various websites which give you some information about surgeons, their qualifications, the feedback from patients, or other technologies they might have in their practices.

Of course, when you come to see me, I’ll be delighted to answer all the questions you have for me. I’ll be happy to share with you my results and patients experience.
