I have been a patient of Mr Daya for over 17 years, having been diagnosed with Keratoconus in both eyes at the age of 20.

Due to the severity of my condition I underwent a corneal transplant in my left eye shortly after diagnosis, which was performed by Mr Daya and his team at the Queen Victoria hospital in East Grinstead. Then followed Lasik surgery, a wedge re-section, 5 years of hard, almost intolerable contact lenses, until Mr Daya told me four months ago that my condition had stabilised, technology had advanced and that I was able to have IOL Implantable Lenses in both eyes.

The news that I could have the surgery was a life changing moment in itself as a long distant dream of being able to see, was to going be realised.

Six weeks after surgery it is actually very emotional to type this testimonial as looking at the screen now, I can’t actually believe what I can see. My condition and history are far from the average IOL patient and whilst I may end up wearing glasses (with a very weak prescription) for driving, my vision is absolutely amazing. The procedure has completely changed my life.

Over the years I have seen many changes at Centre for Sight. Mr Daya having started his clinic on a ward at the Queen Victoria Hospital, to the most sophisticated consultation rooms at Queen Anne Street and now, a purpose built, state of the art hospital in East Grinstead. I feel very truly grateful to have been referred to Mr Daya 17 years ago and I cannot thank him and his team enough for the care and treatment they have given me over the years.

I would not hesitate to recommend Centre for Sight for any type of eye surgery. They are an amazing team with the utmost commitment to patient care, professionalism and of course, fantastic results.
