I did quite a bit of research on exactly was involved in cataract surgery, but to be honest I need not have bothered. At my initial consultation with Mr Gangwani I was given all the information that I needed to make the decision to have cataracts operated on. He is a charming person with the ability to “listen” to your concerns and put you at ease, yes I was nervous about having the operations, but I did not need to be. The operations on both eyes went well, Mr Gangwani talks you through everything he is doing at all times which I felt was very reassuring. Follow up phone calls were made to my home to ensure everything was ok and thorough checks were made during the follow up consultations. You really would find it difficult to find a more caring and professional surgeon, a charming man with a secretarial service that is second to none. If you need eye surgery, do not hesitate, contact Mr Gangwani.

During two separate surgical procedures, Mr Vinod Gangwani successfully performed cataract surgery on both my eyes. His pre-op care, courteous understanding and professional manner gave me confidence to proceed. I am over 80 years old and the results have not only greatly improved my eyesight, but also given me confidence and wellbeing, having worn glasses and contact lenses for over 45 years! I consider him to be an outstanding and very talented Ophthalmic Surgeon to whom I am most grateful.
