    Patient Testimonials

    (from a doctor) I thought you would like to know that I have just finished my clinic at the hospital where I read, wrote, examined, did phlebotomy, microscopy, venesection, machine gazing … ALL WITHOUT GLASSES. I just can’t thank you enough.

    I had a brilliant experience using Moorfields eye hospital. From start to finish it felt so simple and I was made to feel at ease throughout the whole process. The procedure was unbelievably quick and Dr Ionides and the nurses made me feel very comfortable! I would definitely recommend Moorfields for this life-changing procedure, the service was second to none.
