  • Location: Optegra Eye Hospital: SurreyService: High ocular pressure

    I am so glad I chose to see Dan Lindfield for high ocular pressure. I had previously been to a different hospital and seen a different consultant and had not been happy with my treatment. Mr Lindfield is kind and considerate and more importantly gave me all my options for treatment and explained everything. I chose SLT laser as treatment and so far so good. I would highly recommend Mr Lindfield!

    Question about Astigmatism

    Is astigmatism curable?

    Is astigmatism curable?
    Dan Lindfield Ophthalmologist, Ophtalmic surgeon Surrey
    Astigmatism is caused by either your cornea (windscreen of the eye), your lens/cataract or a combination of both. The lens/cataract component is removed during lens replacement (cataract) surgery and only the corneal component needs correcting. The most reliable method of doing this is a toric lens implant - a special lens that is rotated inside the eye to reduce astigmatism to minimal levels. precision cuts can also be performed on your cornea but these are less reliable and only treat small levels of astigmatism. If you have any specific questions individual to your own needs please just ask.

    • Location: Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS TrustService: Cataract surgery and stents (Glaucoma)

      Excellent:
      I was fortunate to be seen by Mr Lindfield both before and after my twin operations, as well as the two operations. Left eye August and right eye November 2017. Besides being an excellent surgeon he put me at my ease before each operation, and the results of each operation are first class.

      Could be improved:
      For Mr Lindfield - and the Royal Surrey Hospital - nothing. As to myself - never grow old!

    • Location: Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS TrustService: Cataract removal

      Excellent:
      Mr. Lindfield very carefully and fully explained the procedure and put me at ease. All staff were friendly and helpful and the whole atmosphere very relaxing. I am very, very happy with the results for both eyes and would definitely recommend the services of Mr. Lindfield.

    • Location: Optegra Eye Hospital: SurreyService: Cateract surgery, ongoing glaucoma care

      Excellent:
      Very good results from cateract surgery on both eyes and speedy recovery. Ongoing glaucoma care:I value and feel reassured by the confidence I have in Mr Lindfield and the Optegra team/ technology. He answers all my questions and is most courteous despite obvious time pressures.

    • Location: Optegra Eye Hospital: SurreyService: Cataract removal and lens replacement

      Excellent:
      I had felt huge trepidation: failure would have meant a very different life. But Dan was experienced, friendly, and caring – taking time to talk, suggesting a novel multifocal lens. On the day, I was totally put at ease: The outcome is nigh on miraculous: no glasses needed at all. Dan is top notch.

      Could be improved:
      Nothing at all - I just wish there were more than 300 characters to express how amazed I am at the outcome. I have glaucoma and a replacement lens in my other eye, and sight isn't great - and I had been concerned I would end up with impaired vision in both eyes - how wrong can you be?

    • Location: Optegra Eye Hospital: SurreyService: Cataract surgery

      Excellent:
      The kindness I received from a very professional team. Mr. Lindfield explained in detail what I could expect from the operation. I had hoped to have the top of the range lenses but he told me immediately that they were not suitable. However, the one I had has taken my sight from 6/120 down to 6/12

      Could be improved:
      As far as I am concerned, nothing. Mr. Lindfield is top notch and I cannot thank him enough.

      Excellent:
      I was treated as a person who mattered, and I felt very safe and in good hands.

      Nothing really this for me was a good experience.

    • Location: Optegra Eye Hospital: SurreyService: Cataract surgery

      Excellent:
      I was able to have two cataract operations within two weeks of each other and the attention and skill of surgery I received from Mr. Lindfield was absolutely first class and could not be faulted. The reception I received from staff and nursing staff was very professional on all of my visits.

      Could be improved:
      Nothing

      Excellent:
      I liked the professionalism, the speed and Dan's explanation of the procedure. All-in-all a pleasant experience.
