Lens replacement surgery - recommendations please

Post by ifonly »

Hi. Can anyone share their experiences of having lens replacement surgery here please. MOH is seriously thinking of having it done as he is so fed up with contact lens and glasses - any recommendations as to the best person/clinic to go to would be great.
Many thanks.

I know people who have used Dr Hatice at Cyprus eye clinic and also at the Kamilologlu hospital. All happy with their results.

Dr Husseyn at the Kamiloglu Hospital is excellent. He did my wife's and my lens replacement. Couldn't be more satisfied.

I went to Dr. Hatice, an elderly woman by the traffic lights She told me I had cataracts in both eyes that should be removed. She quoted me £600 per eye and that she could start on my left eye that afternoon !!!
I told her that I would have to think about it. Talking to some friends they said I should get a second opinion and recommended Dr. Huseyin at Kamilologlu hospital, I had to wait a week for an appointment. The charge was 130 lira as opposed to Dr Hatice 200 Lira. The examination was so thorough it took over 1 hour as opposed to 20 minutes by Dr Hataice. His equipment is state of the art.

His conclusion was that yes I did have cataracts but they in such an early stage he would not touch them and at my age, I probably would not need them touched at all.

When I said that Dr Hatice wanted to operate that afternoon, he said "What lenses was she going to use ?"

I would be very wary of Dr Hatice and always get a second opinion or go and see Dr. Huseyin at Kamilologlu hospital, in the first place.

Haircut. I said I know people who have used both the Eye Clinic and the Kamilologlu.
They have all been satisfied by their chosen venue. Of course it's a good idea to have more than one opinion.
I wouldn't describe Hatice as elderly though and perhaps she could take exception to your comments with the new laws on what can be said on social media forums, when naming people negatively.
It is who you have confidence in at the end of the day.
Everyone raves about a certain dentist on here but both my husband and I have had awful experiences with that person. Each to their own choices at the end of the day.

Well my eyes are fine and they were done by a not elderly Hatice as well. Elderly depends on your own age I think.

I think my post about the Eye clinic had three points excluding the good lady's age.

1. To ask for payment of £600 in sterling. This drives me mad we are in the TRNC where the currency is Turkish lira.

2. The equipment that the eye clinic could be classed as antique compared to the equipment at The Kamilologlu.

3. She was willing to operate that afternoon, and as Dr Huseyin said "What lens was she going to use". Does she keep the correct one for you in stock, I don't think so.

I'm sorry if I upset "Panchocat" perhaps it might have been better if I had said she was "No Spring Chicken"

About point 1. Have you not bought a car here or a property? They are normally in Sterling.

Yes and Yes, but not paid for a medical procedure in Sterling, does the two words "Tax evasion" come to mind?

Thank you everyone - certainly food for thought and we will take on board the positive and negative . Think i know where we will be avoiding as we have received several messages also about problems/issues.
