Patient testimonials

Attended for two cataract replacements. The staff were extremely positive and reassuring from the moment I first stepped in the door until I left after the final follow-up visit. It was clear that this is a very well organised and caring establishment.

I am more than happy to recommend the support staff and surgical team who were so professional and caring in what is for most patients a worrying time attending for an eye operation. I was put at my ease and taken through the procedure quickly and painlessly. A big Thank You to all persons involved. Wonderful service.

Diagnosed by optician with cataracts in late July. Initial assessment by Newmedica in August and surgery in October. Just how more efficient can you get!

Delightful friendly staff who explained everything needed and a super efficient surgeon who performed the task quickly. It wasn't painless but neither was it painful. Perhaps a little uncomfortable but nothing that wasn't tolerable.

My eye was blurred for most of the day but the following morning my sight through that eye was amazing; as if I was a child once more. So clear and sharp and no pain whatsoever.

My post surgery check up was easy with quick checks on the corrected eye by the ever efficient staff and a check and chat with the amazing man who gave me back my sight in that eye.

I was so lucky to have been referred to Newmedica by my opticians and can't thank the people there enough. They change lives.

Now I have to be patient and wait a short while before my other eye is done. I think it's pretty clear that I would have no hesitation at all recommending Newmedica.
