    Mr Quah is a very approachable pleasant character, he puts you at ease and explains what the best treatment is for you and what the possible outcomes will be whilst also explaining any risks. I have had both lenses replaced and I now no longer require glasses. I would happily recommend Mr Quah to anyone who is considering sight correction.

    Extremely Professional, I was so worried about what needed to be done. He made me feel at ease, was very straight talking (which I like!) I could not recommend his services and those of his team enough. It’s been 30 years in the waiting. I excellent experience. Amazing result.

    I had an amazing experience having lens replacement surgery with Mr. Quah. The initial consultation was very thorough yet we still had time for a chat. Surgery itself was completely painless and incredibly slick. The very next day I didn’t need glasses anymore. Mr Quah had been recommended to me by an optician and a fellow eye surgeon so he really is the Eye specialist’s surgeon of choice. He is a real master of his trade. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

    Mr Quah is a highly experienced and qualified surgeon. I have over the years had the opportunity to work alongside him and seen the results of his expert work. His results are excellent and he is extremely dedicated to his profession. His bedside manner are excellent and his patients have on numerous occasion expressed how grateful they are to him for the care he has provided them. I would not hesitate to have Mr Quah look after my own eyes at any stage.
