    I have been very impressed with Mr Hove. I would heartily recommend him for removal of cataracts and insertion of trifocal lenses. The procedure was quick. I had no pain or blood shot eyes, just a slight feeling of grittiness for a few hours. I can see perfectly to read drive and the computer. Well worth the expense and no more glasses. Thank you so much Mr Hove

    Complex Cataract Surgery
    I have recently had a cataract operation done on both eyes on the same day, this is what is known as a bilateral lmeaning both sides operation. For those with some understanding of medical terms this particular uperation, is called phacoemulsification. From the time I visited Mr Hove for a complete assessment of my case through to the actual operation itself , and the time I spent in the recovery room, to my still ongoing post operative care, this doctor CANNOT be bettered, and I say this as someone who not only WAS a nurse( now retired) but as someone who, unfortunately has had to see MANY consultants as a patient too.. .Mr Hove is endlessly patient, kind and reassuring, and also delightfully informal, but he explains the recommended procedure in terms that a baby could grasp. He's at the other end of a phone line if you have any queries or sudden panic, and his PA is equally wonderful, and kind and helpful too. If you've been told that you need eye surgery, go and see Mr Hove, You'll thank your lucky stars that you DID. With him in command, you'll SAIL through the whole experience. All I can still say is thank you so much Mr Hove, and God bless you.

    I had LASIK eye surgery with Mr Hove and the team at Accuvision, Parsons Green after my mum’s friends all had their eyes done with Mr. Hove. The whole experience was faultless from start to finish. The care from the team of ophthalmologists and from Mr. Hove himself was friendly and comprehensive and the procedure was done in a flash, with recovery also being very quick. I now have 20/20 vision and couldn’t be happier. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else! Thanks to you all!

    Mister Hove got my son in right way and has literally changed my son’s vision of the world! He drew out pictures explaining the science of the eye in a way that a 10 y.o. could grasp. Mister Hove took the extra time to address how these issues have effected other functional domains such as sports as well as discussed the genetic links around vision that have led us to access our other son’s site. Mister Hove also used a sense of humour and knowledge that has gotten my son excited to wear glasses for the first time so he can see the world around him. I fully recommend Mister Hove with out a single hesitation, he truly took care of us!

    Cataract Surgery Cataracts
    I am very pleased with my recent Cataract eye surgery. I had Phacoemulsification with Trifocal Lens. (Premim Tricocal Lens on my right eye) My surgery was carried out by Mr. Mfazo Hove at the Harley Street Specialist Hospital. Mr. Hove was very professional, caring and approachable. He provides one-to-one care throughout the whole procedure from consultation, surgery and aftecare. My surgery was a complete success and I can now read and go on my laptop without glasses. I would be more than happy to recommend Mr. Hove for cataract eye surgery. I would also like to add before I had my cataract eye surgery, I was very nervous and anxious as I have only got eyesight in one eye, but thankfully it all went well. Thanks to Mr. Hove.

    Mr Hove went to great lengths to ensure I was well informed about the procedure. The procedure went very smoothly and Mr Hove has been available for post operative consultations over the telephone and via video link during lockdown.

    Mr Hove is a driven, caring and highly accomplished ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon. I would gladly have him treat my friends and family. He makes surgery look easy, but this is testament to his training at world renowned institutions including Moorfields Eye Hospital. His ability combined with confidence and approachability make him an excellent colleague to work with and someone who I would highly recommend. He takes pride in the quality of his work and always seeks opportunities to train eye surgeons of the future.
