    Ptosis Repair
    The first consultation I had with Ms. Olver about my ptosis correction put me immediately at ease. She took her time to carry out several tests on my eyes and went through them all with me, explained the procedure simply and answered all the questions I had. The day of the procedure itself was just as easy. I arrived and was taken well care of, the nurses were great and the procedure went smoothly and after a brief sit down in a lovely recovery room i was able to go home. The clinic was clean, social distancing followed and staff were wearing masks throughout. My recovery was quick, had some mild ache and discomfort on my eye for a couple of days and bruising which faded completely after a couple of weeks. I'm extremely pleased with the results of my ptosis correction, the eyelid that was 'droopy' is now much more open and evenly matched with the other eye.

    Extremely kind, sympathetic, clear, efficient. Ms Olver was able to make an instant diagnosis of my problem and eased my extreme anxiety about my Thyroid Eye Disease, and has given me a plan of treatment. The only issue I have as an elderly unwell person is access; the many stairs in these old buildings.

    A highly professional and extremely skilled surgeon, Jane has undertaken surgery on both my upper eyelids. The experience was most positive and the after care very good. Her staff are excellent and the whole process given the nature of the procedure was as stress free as possible. I would have no hesitation in entrusting any further eye surgery with Jane should it ever become necessary. The whole procedure was well explained and the risks too. Recovery time was very good without issue.
