Mrs C

I am totally delighted with my ‘new eyes’, thanks to the skill and competence of my surgeon, Mr Ong. Queries regarding previous laser surgery were answered in detail and I felt totally assured of the whole process especially when the actual surgery took place. I found Mr Ong most professional and quite charming as were his nurse, Yulia and secretary, Nicola.

Mrs JM

From my first visit to Mr Ong to my last, I realised he was a very caring and dedicated surgeon. He explained everything he would be doing and I felt in very safe hands. I  thank him and his team for the genuine care given to me. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Ong to any family or friends I knew need a  cataract operation. I needed both eyes to be operated on and my vision had been reverted to normal. Thank you so much.

Mr M

There is an obvious fear element in any procedure involving one’s eyes. However Mr Ong’s thoughtful calmness throughout my visits and indeed the whole nursing staff’s professionalism made the experience pleasurable with ever a doubt that the outcome would not be successful. I can now relate the procedure is so swift, it does not feel like an operation.

Mr B

A professional, competent service and procedure, carried out smoothly by Mr Ong. The outcome has been satisfactory and hopefully will see me through the next decade.

Mr C

Mr Ong was very courteous and explained all the procedure. The operation was very quick and the after care was very satisfactory. When having the eye test at opticians, the opticians said 3 times the work on the eye was very good.

Mr R

I can’t speak too highly of Mr Ong and his entire team for their care and expertise throughout the whole process of both my operations. My vision is so much improved. Thank you.

Mr P

Procedure was efficiently carried out by Mr Ong. Outcome excellent. I am well pleased!

Mr H

Mr Ong carried out the surgery which was quick, painless and very successful. He gave advise and explained the procedure and possible hazards involved. His manner, confidence and sense of humour left me in no doubt that all would be well. He gave me back something precious which I was slowly losing and for that I shall always be very grateful. One of the best ways, I think, of providing feedback would be by asking the question, would I recommend the Lea Hospital and Mr Ong to others? Most certainly I would and have already done so!

Mrs W

I had an excellent eye surgery. All is now working well. I was recommended Mr Ong and would certainly use him again.

Mrs W

It seems so strange to be able to see long distance without glasses. I have started driving and no longer need glasses except for reading. I can’t thank Mr Ong enough for everything.

Mr T

Very happy with all medical and surgical treatment by Mr Ong and the outcome.

Mrs PW

Mr Ong and his entire team was extremely efficient and reassuring. I felt I was in ‘capable hands’. My cataract operation was a great success.

Mr L

I had both eyes operated on in 2 weeks. The results are excellent thanks to Mr Ong and his team.

Mrs S

A well facilitated experience. Clear guidance given. All went well. Thanks Mr Ong

Mrs EB

The thought of two cataract operations at the age of 82 years was somewhat daunting to a person of a rather nervous disposition. Enter Mr Ong and his team at the hospital. Despite the epidemic, the atmosphere throughout was calm and professional. From my first consultation to the completion of my treatment, not only did I feel recognised as a person but I received first class care and top rate results. The most important aspect of any procedure is the confidence instilled by the staff. Mr Ong and his team certainly constantly provided this. The world looks a brighter clearer place now.

Mrs GM

Both operations by Mr Ong were very quick. Everything was well explained to me and I felt very well taken care of. My sight is much better.

Having had 2 cataracts successfully removed recently, I have only praise for Mr Ong and all his nurses. It is like a miracle that my sight is now brilliant, but it is also wonderful that I had such reassuring care from all concerned. Mr Ong is a lovely and approachable surgeon, and I am fortunate to have had him perform both operations. Many, many thanks

Mrs P

The service I received was very friendly from the receptionist to the nurses that look after me before and after my cataract op. Thanks to Mr Ong, my eye is now much better and I can see again!

Mr D

My cataract was dealt with efficiency and care. It was made clear to me what to expect, what could be achieved and what could be treated at this time. Nicola was efficient and everything was done at the times I was expecting. Mr Ong explained everything very carefully so there were no surprises. Thank you to Mr Ong and your team.

Mrs S

Two cataract operations expertly performed by Mr Ong. I particularlyappreciated his calm, unfussy explainations and very reassuring manner during the procedures- and in the consultations before and after. I felt in very good hands.

Mrs R

Both of my cataract operations were carried out with efficiency and care, making the whole process much easier. Mr Ong and the team at Spire Lea were great. Thank you

Mrs JD

I have nothing but praise for Mr Ong and his team after my experience of both eyes being treated. From the very first appointment I was put at my ease and felt well informed for the procedures. My eyes are well and I can now see clearly.

Mrs B-K

A big ‘’Thank you’’ to Mr Ong and the whole team regarding my recent cataract surgery which had a successful outcome. I was quite concerned before the surgery but Mr Ong is very professional, very good at putting one at ease, kind and very good at explaining what is happening during the procedure.

My treatment throughout both eye procedures was excellent. Mr Ong explained every move throughout the ops clearly in simple terms. At no time did I feel uncomfortable prior, during or at the end of my stay with you.

Mrs B

1st class. Many thanks Mr Ong!

Mrs T

My eye operation by Mr Ong went smoothly from start to finish. I was made to feel very relaxed throughout, keeping me informed of everything going on. I didn’t need  any pain relief afterwards at all. Thank you.

Mr P

My optometrist at Wades today commented on ‘’the miracle worker Mr Ong’’ as she was impressed with the improvement in my sight and I look forward to being able to read when I have my new glasses. Very many thanks for two trouble-free operations and arranged as close together as possible.

 Mrs B

Mr Ong and all the staff were wonderful and looked after me very well.

Mrs B

I found Mr Ong to be friendly, compassionate and very competent. He explained everything he was doing. I had no hesitation in returning to have the second eye done. The staff were also very friendly and caring. The results were very satisfactory.


The impact of the cataract operation was nothing short of miraculous. I now drive at night- not having done so for 18months. I am very grateful to Mr Ong and his staff both for the cataract operation and for more than a year of treatment for macula degeneration. The impact on my lifestyle has been wonderful.

Mrs JB

I have been privileged to have been treated by Mr Ong for a macula hole in 2019. I feel entirely secure in his care, the outcome of which has been excellent. Having had local anaesthetic for the procedure, I am especially aware of the skill and precision of his surgery. Everything is fine with my eyes and I am awaiting a consultation with my opticians for new glasses.

Mrs B

Very pleased, from consultation to operation, Mr Ong was always a gentleman. He made me feel at ease and will definitely see him again if problems arise.

Mr L

Very good experience. I felt reassured before, during and post surgery. Satisfactory outcome, improved vision. Thank you for the excellent care from Mr Ong and staff.

Prompt attention from Mr Ong and his staff. Very pleased with the whole operation from initial consultation to completion.

I am delighted with my eye care, not one thing to worry about. Lovely nurses and staff and couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. Thank you Mr Ong.

Mr L

My eye is fine now, thank you. Despite seeing Mr Ong as a masked figure! He was very friendly. However, of course the main thing is that he carried out a successful operation speedily and in a way that gave me total confidence. Nicola was also very friendly and helpful. Thanks again.

Mrs PD

I met Miss Shahid at the Nuffield Centre, Cambridge, who said my cataracts were crowding my eyes causing pressure, giving me an urgent problem. Removing cataracts should solve my problem. The operation was amazing, no pain, so quick (20 mins). A nurse held my hand and Miss Shahid talked me through the whole procedure. I had prescriptive lenses put in. I now have wonderful eyesight. No more glasses. I can’t thank Miss Shahid enough for saving my eyesight and for the care and attention the staff gave me, also thank you to Nicola for all my appointments and for ringing me to see how I was after I went home.


The outcome exceeded my wildest expectation. I found everyone involved in my treatment helpful and efficient and always willing to answer my (many!) questions. This was really important to me as I had heard the treatment carried risks. Miss Shahid was great, professional but friendly, always keeping me aware of what was happening even during the operations. Her quiet confidence rubbed off on me and I felt totally relaxed throughout. A pleasant experience with a wonderful outcome. Our hiking/ kayaking will now be enhanced by the colour and clarity of my “new” vision.

Mrs MK

My treatment was exemplary. Miss Shahid and her team were highly competent and professional, friendly and courteous. From start to finish, my visits were effective and efficient. The key point perhaps is that I can now see again. I am grateful for the care I received and warmly recommend Miss Shahid and her colleagues.

Mrs MB

Thank you so much for all you have done for my Right eye. You team were very kind to me. I hope to come to you for my Left eye soon!!

Mrs H

I wish to express my thanks to Mr Ong and his team for all they did to ensure my cataract removal was a safe and comfortable procedure. I found them to be professional and friendly and would definitely recommend them to future patients.

Mrs G

It was great. Mr Ong was very kind and considerate. I can now see long distance. Thank you very much.

Mrs S

I found the experience of my recent eye surgery to amazing!. The kindness and care that I received from Mr Ong and his team were truly outstanding. Everything that happened was thoughtful and reassuring. It made what could have been an alarming situation to an elderly, ill and disabled lady like myself into a calm, gentle and peaceful experience.  

My sight is now excellent and I can continue my much loved art work with occasional use of simple reading glasses. I am delighted with the outcome and am very grateful to Mr Ong.

Mrs S

Extremely pleased with the care and attention paid by Mr Ong. His manner is superb- explaining everything and ensuring I was comfortable with the plans for surgery before proceeding. It is wonderful to be able to see clearly again!

Mr B

Had both eyes done within a fortnight. First class service throughout. Everything explained clearly. Mr Ong was excellent and I am very pleased with the results.

Mrs L

Thank you to Mr Ong for his care, efficiency and kindness. Both cataract operations were successful and I am now enjoying my new vision. I was anxious before surgery but Mr Ong explained the procedure clearly and reassured me throughout. It has been a positive experience and I am delighted with the result.

Dr K

I would like to thank Mr Ong for his very successful treatment of the cataract in both my eyes. Both operations were a real pleasure (and a new experience) for me. I was really impressed by how rapid, gentle and painlessthe procedures were as well as the speedy recovery time.

The end result is far better than I could have possibly imagined. I can now see better without glasses than I have in 70 years – both far vision 6/6 and for reading N5. Really quite amazing.

Mr S

Mr Ong was highly professional and I had trust in his advice and skill.

Dr W

I had an excellent outcome with minimal discomfort during and after surgery by Mr Ong. The improvement in vision is life-changing!

Mrs D

I am very pleased with the outcome of my cataract operation. My recent eye test has confirmed what an excellent outcome has been achieved. Mr Ong was wonderful from start to finish, explaining everything in great detail. He is a wonderful surgeon.

Mrs L

Mr Ong was able to detect my cataracts. He fixed both eyes, and the procedure was quick, smooth and painless. Mr Ong is an excellent ophthalmologist – look no further.

Mrs W

Mr Ong and his nurse gave excellent and caring service. They gave clear explanations and answered my questions full. My eyesight is now very much improved. I would not hesitate to have the same treatment if it becomes appropriate for the second eye.


I was very pleased with both my eye surgery. I had no pain nor complications from the first day after the surgery by Mr Ong. I have no hesitation to recommend Mr Ong to other patients.

Mrs WS

I cannot believe how well I can see without glasses. I now just need glasses for reading small print. The operation which I dreaded was quick, painless and a very rapid recovery. Mr Ong was very kind, informative and put me at ease through the whole procedure.

Mrs S

The service was excellent. Mr Ong explained everything about the operation and now I can drive without glasses. It is amazing. I am so pleased.

Mr L

My cataracts in both eyes became so advanced that I was virtually blind- unable to see anything apart from light and unable to do the most basic things. Mr Ong not only restored my eyesight, but thanks to his skilful intervention my vision is now as good as it used to be several decades ago (good enough to drive). If you are looking for an Ophthalmologist to fix your cataract, look no further- Mr Ong is the best you’ll ever find.

Mrs B

From the start, I found Mr Ong’s calm and friendly manner very reassuring. The surgery was incredibly quick with no complications and the next day I had good distance and near vision. I was able to return to work within days.  I am delighted with the result and will return to Mr Ong when my other eye needs surgery.

Mr M

I have ahd a totally satisfactory service both from the hospital and Mr Ong in particular. Al appointments were kept promptly with little or no waiting time. Mr Ong’s advise was calm and reassuring and the result of both operations was virtually fighter pilot vision. Enough said!!

Mrs S

The service was excellent. Mr Ong explained everything about the operation and now I can drive without glasses. It is amazing! I am so pleased.

Mrs WS

Mrs SR

Mr Ong explained the procedure and after care well. Staff were helpful and reassuring. Op and outcome were good

Mrs M

I was exteremyl nervous about having my cataract operated on, but because of Mr Ong’s professional approach to my care, the whole experience was far better than I expected. The outcome of the operation was amazing and I can’t wait to get the other eye done in the future so I don’t have to wear contact lenses!! Thank you Mr Ong.

Mr C

From initial consultation to final post-op check up, Mr Ong and his nursing staff were friendly, likeable, honest and reassuring. They inspire confidence in their skill and professionalism. Both cataract removals were painless and interesting experiences

Without those cataracts, the world has been scrubbed clean, the sun is brighter and colors more vivid. With the new lens in place, for the first time since I was 12, I can read without spectacles.

Mr P

I am glad that I can leave feedback regarding Mr Ong. Both my wife and I found him extremely polite and informative throughout our experience. A lovely consultant, put us at ease throughout. Thank you Mr Ong.

Miss P

I was very pleased to be treated by Mr Ong as he had treated me at Addenbrookes for AMD. The examination of my eye was very thorough and he explained the risks of cataract surgery ( I have only vision in one eye). The operation was very efficient and I did not have any problems afterwards. Follow up was thorough and efficient.

Mrs W

I couldn’t be more pleased with how my eye surgery went. Right from my initial consultation, I cannot fault the care I received from Mr Ong and his team. Thank you.


I wish to thank Mr Ong, Ms Julie Wright and all the nursing staff for their kind and caring attention during my recent procedure at the Cambridge Lea Hospital.

Still getting used to sharp vision and brighter colours with balanced focus! Many thanks Mr Ong for the attention and speed.

Mrs AW

I am highly delighted with my treatment I received at the clinic. Mr Ong put me at ease straight away and did a wonderful job on my cataracts. He was the perfect professional and I would personally like to thank him. I would recommend this clinic. Thank you all.

Mr T

Surgery by Mr Ong went according to plan. No pain, no surprises. I now have 20/20 vision beyond a metre. The only pain is trying to find my reading glasses!

Mrs H

I was given excellent treatment by Mr Ong and the outcome is excellent as a result. He was pleasant , courteous and explained the procedure all the way through and gave me every confidence in him as a surgeon.

Mr Ong and his staff provide an amazing service. My sight after cataract procedures on both my eyes is now better than it has been since my early twenties.

Mrs J

I had excellent treatment from Mr Ong. Thank you for the help that I received during surgery and follow up appointments.

Mrs N

I was very pleased with the treatment by Mr Ong. He has a very reassuring manner.


Only the highest praise for Ms Shahid and professional way she dealt with all my visits to her. She explained all the procedures in detail including what was happening during the operations. The same applies to all the staff who were involved in the final outcome. My sight is unbelievable. The clarity of vision and sharpness of colours have given me a new life. My only regret is not to have had my ops 12 months earlier. Many many thanks for a 1st class job and results.


As a result of my recent cataract surgery I can honestly say that the experience was gold plated from start to finish in all areas. The procedure is painless and the outcome perfection. Has to be with 20/20 vision. Not only has Miss Shahid a pleasing manner she is obviously gifted surgically. Need I say more.


I found Miss Shahid’s clear explanations and overall clam and gentle manner most reassuring. The end result is excellent! I have almost perfect near and distant vision without the need for glasses. Performance of the multifocal lenses is extraordinary and well worth the extra cost.

Mrs JA

I was extremely happy with the whole experience and outcome. Miss Shahid was a wonderful doctor. The staff at Cambridge were all so caring. I have full 20/20 vision in my eye that was operated on.

Mrs DS

I am absolutely delighted with the cataract surgery performed by Miss Shahid, from the first appointment to the last Miss Shahid explained everything to me as to what to expect, I found her to be the nicest consultant I have ever seen, she has a lovely gentle manner and puts you at ease especially during the surgery procedure.


It was a pleasure to have been treated by Miss Shahid, Ophthalmic Surgeon, and her support staff. All showed the utmost care and professionalism. I required surgery to both eyes for cataracts which was carried out over a period of three months. The outcome has been a complete success, I now have perfect vision without the need for glasses. The two operations lasted about 20-25 minutes each, and I strongly recommend Miss Shahid and her team without reservation


Miss Shahid is a consummate professional. A wonderful demeanour and extraordinarily well organised. My whole experience at Pinehill has been a pleasure! I never thought I’d say that pre-op. The whole team led by Miss Shahid deserve great credit. Thank you

Mrs EC

Two new eyes!I much appreciated the thoughtful friendliness and efficiency, changing the anaesthesia after the first surgery to be less traumatic, excellent follow-up and calm professionalism when the first lens inserted proved faulty. Altogether everything possible was done to look after me and my eyes. Thank you indeed Miss Shahid – it is settling well.

Mrs CG

Both consultant and her team made my experience of double cataract surgery as calm as could be, while keeping me fairly informed throughout. The outcome was excellent; my vision is very clear with much improved distance vision and so bright, notably at night. I felt that communications with my surgeon were exemplary, also helped by her secretary, amongst others.

Mrs H

The whole experience was better than I expected. I was very anxious about this procedure. However, after attending an open evening I was sufficiently reassured to continue with a consultation. I was treated with respect and the whole experience proved stress free with a satisfactory outcome. Thank you Mr Ong

Mr S

Mr Ong provided a very caring and professional service throughout the cataract operation and aftercare. I am delighted to be able to identify small birds on the feeder at the end of my garden again. Very pleased with the result of the surgery.


Mr Jong Min Ong removed both cataracts in my eyes within a few weeks over the Christmas and New Year. He is a miracle man! I had no pain and little discomfort. I could see much better within 24hours and the tv colours have a new dimension. Nicola and all the nursing staff were second to none.

Mrs C

My experience of the eye surgery was excellent. I found Mr Ong to be a very polite man who explained every step of the procedure he was going to perform. I would have no problem in recommending him in the future.


I had a very good experience with Mr Ong. He explained the complications that could arise from cataract surgery. The operation was very quick and painless, follow up was thorough and I was completely satisfied.

Mrs RS

What a lovely person Mr Ong is, with such a re-assuring manner and thorough attention to every detail particularly pre-op. Which as a result put me at ease before both operations, and made my surgical experience during both operations very easy. Both eye operations went very smoothly indeed, with no complications, exactly as predicted by Mr Ong. The outcome, was a great success, with now very much improved vision to both eyes and which has now changed my life. I would highly recommend Mr Ong to anyone needing cataract surgery in the future. So thank you very much indeed Mr Ong!


Mr Ong was very professional and very kind.

Mrs JY

I have recently had both my cataracts operated on by Mr Ong. I received vey good treatment and I am delighted with my new vision.

Mrs M

My whole experience with Mr Ong and my cataract surgery was very smooth. I felt safe and cared for by a professional, kind team.

Mr T

A very professional service by Mr Ong and his team. The outcome has been excellent. Many thanks!

Prof MT

I felt that Mr Ong did a great job. He was 1st class and explained all potential pros and cons of the operation as well as the timescale of recovery. During the operation, he also explained what he was doing and why. So many thanks!

Miss B

I am grateful to Mr Ong and all those involved with my care at the Nuffield. Both cataracts were successfully carried out and my sight is much improved. Colours look much more vibrant.

Mr B

I had recent cataract surgery at the Spire Hospital.  I had been Mr Ong’s NHS patient for a number of years and I have been very impressed by his professionalism. I chose to go private as I could choose him and his “golden hands” to deal with my sight. As expected, both cataracts were very expertly operated. It was suggested that I have toric lenses for my astigmatism and this was also a success. The staff at the spire was very good, general care and the whole process was faultless.

Mrs G

The efficiency and patient care of Mr Ong and the whole team in the eye department could not have been better, giving an excellent result after my cataract surgery.

Mrs N

I was a bit apprehensive about the cataract operation but it was much easier than I had thought and all done very quickly and efficiently and everything explained as it went along. Mr Ong and everyone that I saw was extremely kind and helpful. The eyes are very good and I am now awaiting new glasses.

Mrs J

Superb care in all areas. Thank you Mr Ong. Highly recommended.


The facilities and staff at the Nuffield were excellent as was the professionalism of Mr Ong. The results Mr Ong has achieved are everything I wanted.

Mr B

I attended the Nuffield Hospital for cataract surgery under Mr Ong and his staff. I was made to feel very relaxed in a  well run department. Thank you to all.

Mrs B

My experience at the Nuffield Hospital was very good, as was the outcome of my cataract surgery by Mr Ong. Every courtesy was extended to me at all times.

Mrs P

I cannot speak too highly regarding the care and attention I received from Mr Ong and his team during my 2 cataract operations. I was quite nervous but Mr Ong was able to relax and reassure me throughout, telling me step by step exactly what he was doing. A particular word of thanks goes to the nurse who does the eye tests in the clinic.

Mrs ED

Day surgery performed efficiently by Mr Ong. Follow up and consultations addressed queries and worries. Again efficient, little waiting time. All staff pleasant and helpful


Any anxieties I had about cataract surgery was soon forgotten after Mr Ong explained in depth the procedure. I decided to go for a multifocal lens after Mr Ong explained the benefits. The operation a few weeks later went smoothly due to friendly nurses during preparation. The operation was totally painless and Mr Ong put me at ease explaining the procedure throughout. I now have 20/20 vision and am delighted.

Mr K

I was completely satisfied with both treatment and final result. At every stage from start to finish I felt I was in very competent and capable hands. I am very grateful to Mr Ong and his team.


The treatment that I and my immediate family received during my visits to the Nuffield for a consultation and subsequent visits were exemplary. Mr Ong and all staff were both courteous and helpful.

Mrs TK

The removal of my cataracts was speedy, comfortable and operated in a professional atmosphere by Mr Ong.

Mr G

I am more than satisfied with Mr Ong’s diagnosis and subsequent cataract operations, both for his skills and kind treatment. I was also impressed by the efficiency of the Nuffield operating theatre and by Mr Ong’s assistant.

Mrs GF

Mr Ongs care of me having my cataracts done was excellent. All is well with me after the surgery. Mr Ong is kind and charming and I never had to wait long to see him. The day surgery at the Spire was also excellent.


From the initial consultation throughout all the ensuing procedures, Mr Ong inspired great confidence. He was friendly and reassuring and I was made to feel very comfortable. He encouraged questions and his answers were easily understood. I have been thoroughly satisfied with my successful treatment and look forward to collecting my new prescription glasses shortly.


After an initial examination, Mr Ong agreed to remove both cataracts in two operations three weeks apart. Both operations were completely successful. Each was carried out quickly and painlessly by Mr Ong who explained exactly what he was doing at all stages. He checked each eye 3 days later to confirm that the operation has been a success. He carried out a full check a month later and confirmed that there has been no complications.


Mrs JD

Everyone at the Nuffield was excellent, from the ‘’check in’’ desk, to the nurses and especially Mr Ong. My operation was on the 20th of April, with a follow up on the 23rd (my Birthday). Joked with Mr Ong about this and he remembered and gave me a card!! What a lovely man, who has done a great job!!!! Thanks to everyone.

Mrs JM

I would like to thank Mr Ong for a gold star service! I found the whole procedure of having my second cataract surgery as efficient an the result as effective as my first eye last year. Not only has Mr Ong a calm and considered approach, he is very clear about the procedure before, during and after the surgery. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone considering eye surgery.

Mrs N

I cannot fault the treatment that I received. Everyone was very friendly and Mr Ong explained the procedure fully to me. The outcome is I have better eyesight, and the whole thing was done quickly and efficiently.

Mrs L

This is first to inform you that I was happy with the care that I received while I was in the care of Mr Ong.

Prof MS

I received excellent management from Mr Ong. The surgery was uncomplicated and any issues were immediately attended to.

Mrs DS

Mr Ong was quick and I found that my eye was painfree. I could see the next day and everything was clear within 2 days. The outcome I can see colours and everything is so bright. I also only need glasses for very small print now. Fantastic result.

Mrs S

Mr Ong did a fantastic job removing both my cataracts with skill, care and speed. I was very surprised by the absence of pain and very little discomfort. I am very grateful to Mr Ong for my now great vision. Thank you very much.

Mrs RH

Mr Ong could not have provided me with better care. He has a friendly, open manner and I was treated at all times with both patience and respect. Before, during and after surgery, he always asked me whether I had any questions or concerns. During cataract surgery, Mr Ong was reassuring and kept me fully informed about what he was doing. I had no problems following surgery and both eyes have recovered well. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Ong to anyone needing eye treatment.

Mrs JH

My experience with Mr Ong and the outcome of my recent eye surgery is completely 100% satisfactory and many thanks to Mr Ong

Prof IG

Both cataract operations were highly successful and Mr Ong’s advice always helpful

Mrs C

My eye operation could not have gone any better. I was very uptight when I came to the hospital but Mr Ong and his team treated me so very well explaining each stage as it went along, this made me feel relaxed. The service I received was second to none. I now have fantastic eyesight in my right eye and could not be more pleased. A big thank you to all.

Mrs GK

Excellent experience! Mr Ong is very professional, efficient and charming. No problems with cataract surgery and following weeks using eye drops. Would thoroughly recommend.

Prof MS

Excellent care by Mr Ong, event free surgery and post operative period. At all times, the procedures and outcomes were clearly explained to me. I am very content with the entire experience.


The treatment I received at the Nuffield Hospital by the staff and Mr Ong was excellent. I had spent over 2 year unable to read road signs, car numbers and writing on the tv, everything was blurred and getting worse. The first thing I noticed after cataract removal was trees were no longer fuzzy and colours bright. I no longer wear glasses to drive or out and about, only to read and write. I am extremely grateful for the  restoration of my eyesight. Thank you very much.

Mrs R

I contacted the Nuffield  after my optician told me I was on the brink of being unable to drive due to cataracts. I was referred to Mr Ong who performed bilateral cataract surgery. I am delighted with the results. The world looks a much brighter place and I can drive with confidence! Mr Ong and the nursing staff were helpful and supportive both in the hospital and with advise and aftercare. I would certainly recommend the procedure and treatment I received to others.

Mrs A

From the first appointment to the last, Mr Ong and his wonderful team of nurses treated me with kindness and respect. Each procedure was explained and surgery performed with minimum fuss and discomfort. After more than 50years, I can now drive without glasses- wonderful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Ong and the Nuffield Hospital.

Mrs JD

Mr Ong’s competence and caring approach was apparent at my initial consultation. He explained in the detail the cause of my condition and his proposed corrective procedure. All this is terms that I could understand and in an unhurried and attentive manner. The procedure was successful and with Mr Ong’s considerate manner, I was totally reassured and at ease. The care that I experienced at the Nuffield was totally reflective of the treatment provided by Mr Ong. A close friend and former patient of Mr Ong recommended his and I would now fully endorse the views of that friend.

Mrs J

Surgery with Mr Ong was satisfactory on all counts!

Mrs P

Thank you Mr Ong. All good!


Excellent care from all concerned : Mr Ong, nurses and receptionists. Good communication with secretary. Outcome very satisfactory : the fog has lifted!!

Mr B

I would like to take the opportunity to extend a very special thanks to Mr Ong and those who work alongside for all the care, kindness, that has been given to me in the recent times, and which sadly is missing from quite a number of similar institutions.


Very happy with the results and the outstanding service received from Mr Ong. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming

Mrs TZ

Mr Ong was clear and concise. Good person centred care. This gave and gives me the confidence in future treatment. I would highly recommend him and his team.

Mrs JT

Mr Ong and staff were so good and got rid of any worries I may have had and would recommend him to anyone. Thank you all.

Mrs A

Following x2 cataracts developing very rapidly and getting worse, I was seen quickly and both operations carried out as convenient to me. Mr Ong is very approachable, answering any questions I had. Cataract surgery : very good outcome.

Mrs JC

First class treatment from all the staff while having 2 eye operations with Mr Ong. A huge Thank You from me and all my family


I chose to see Dr Ong because he did an excellent job on my right eye a few years ago. Like before, I was given a detailed account of the procedures which would be carried out and a regular update of where we were in the scheme. His calm manner made me feel relaxed too. Thank you.

Mrs JH

The care under Mr Ong was excellent. Both eyes have recovered well. I would certainly recommend Mr Ong.

Mrs H

My experience under the care of Mr Jong Ong was exemplary. I found Mr Ong to be extremely emphathetic, efficient and competent. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend him to future patients. I had a very successful outcome from my cataract surgery. Despite having AMD, I had immediate better vision following the surgery carried out by Mr Ong.

Mrs MK

Extremely pleased with the outcome of my cataract surgery. Improvement in both eyes and vision is fantastic. The professional approach by Mr Ong from start to finish was very reassuring.

Mrs S

A very good experience. Everything went very smoothly. An excellent outcome on the eye operation by Mr Ong. 100% satisfied.

Mrs GJ

The entire experience from making first contact with Mr Ong and the Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital to my discharge of all treatment has been superlative. I felt supported, listened to, understood and to have been treated with care, diligence and professionalism throughout. Nothing has been too much trouble and I would like to thank all involved. Particular thanks to Mr Ong and Julie for your help and cheerfulness and ‘can do’ attitude in all your dealings with me and your overall care and concern. Thank you!

Mr S

My vision is massively improved. Mr Ong did a great job. He was very professional and kept me informed on all aspect of the procedure.


I am very pleased with my cataract surgery on both my eyes. It was quite painless and Mr Ong had explained everything very thoroughly and has a very pleasant manner. I would recommend him to friends.


This summer Mr Ong replaced my natural lens with Oculentis Toric comfort lenses to remove my cataracts and correct my vision (myopia and astigmatism) I now have excellent vision without glasses and can see things from a distance to arms length away, just low strength ‘’readers’’ for reading and close work. The outcome has been transformational and the surgery painless due to Mr Ong’s care and skill.


I found the experience pleasant. The procedure and tests were well explained and questions answered and operations undertaken by Mr Ong. I am very satisfied with the result, particularly the removal of the astigmatism in my right eye.


Clear explanation throughout consultancy, surgery and aftercare. If I had a third eye, I would bring it too Mr Ong.

Mr B

Mr Ong was clear on what the options were, and took care to ensure that I fully understood the procedure. Surgery was well conducted and my left eye is substantially improved.

Mr H

This was the second time I have been under Mr Ong. Once again the procedure went as smoothly as it possibly could. Mr Ong is a wizard!! Painless, professional and totally proficient. Excellent service.


I was very impressed with the way the cataract surgery was performed by Miss Shahid and I found her to be confident and charming in every way


The surgery experience was professional yet caring and fully explained. All the staff were kind and considerate. The consultations were relaxed but informative. The outcome is just amazing and has made a huge improvement to my life. Miss Shahid was amazing. Thank you so much.

Mrs DP

Miss Shahid and her team were both reassuring and efficient. The whole experience was so much more comfortable than I imagined it would be


At the initial consultation Miss Shahid was very conscientious in explaining the procedure in the forthcoming operation (s) and quickly dispelled any concerns I had about undergoing the procedure. I am delighted with the outcome of the operations she has recently performed and I cannot speak too highly of her expertise. The follow-up treatment has been excellent. The nursing support staff were also very kind and conscientious in their duties


I am delighted with every aspect of my recent ophthalmic surgery. I was treated with the utmost professionalism and care by Miss Shahid and her team. I was more than delighted by the arrangement and care shown by all at the Nuffield hospital

Mrs DL

My cataract surgery on both eyes at the Nuffield Health hospital was performed by Miss Humma Shahid. I can’t believe my eyes are back to great strength at a 84 years young lady. Thank you


Dear Miss Shahid
I have better sight now than perhaps ever.
I am delighted with the result.  But this would not have been possible if I  had not the benefit of your great skills.  From our first meeting, my wife and I have been hugely impressed by your manner, by the clarity of your explanation of the procedure and by your implementation of it, my wife as an observer and I as the patient.  I am extremely grateful to you. Whenever anyone has asked where I have had my cataracts removed, we have always sung your praises.

Mrs AS

I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my recent cataract surgery under the care of Miss Shahid. All the staff whom I come into contact with were extremely pleasant and helpful. I felt like a person not a number. Thank you.


The experience was as good as can be expected. The outcome was excellent and I am happy to recommend Miss Shahid – and to ask her to perform a similar operation on my right eye if I suffer similar deterioration.

Mr G

I can only say that when my next cataract op is due, the only person I would have to treat me is Mr Ong. Nothing I can add. In the word of Tina Turner “Simply The Best”

Mrs JM

I cannot rate Mr Ong highly enough. Everything from the initial appointment, surgery and follow up was clear and efficient. Mr Ong treats you with the utmost courtesy and respect. He answered all my questions clearly and I felt both informed and reassured before surgery. The result is better than I expected and I will have no hesitation about contacting him again when the other eye requires it.

Lady SB

The care throughout the 2 procedures was superb by every member of the team, from the expertise of Mr Ong, whose manner and calming influence helped enormously, to all the support staff, who are so vital to the success of the operation. The outcome is that I have excellent vision all round, needing a little help with reading.

Mrs JR

It seems like a miracle to have such restored vision. I am so grateful and thankful for all the skill and kindness I have been given by Mr Ong and nursing staff.


Very satisfied with all the aspects of my eye surgery performed by Mr Ong

Mrs JF

Overall extremely satisfied – excellent consultant (Mr Ong) and care. Both operations went well, no problems post op.


I was very satisfied with the superb care and attention provided by Mr Ong and also the service provided by Nuffield Hospital. This is the first time I had used private health care and have no regrets at all. If more people did this, it would take some of the strain off the NHS. Thank you for everything.

Mrs JS

I found Mr Ong very kind and liked the way he explained the whole procedure in simple language. I am very happy with the outcome as I now have very good vision.

Mrs PJ

Four months after the cataract surgery I am delighted with the results and feel that I could not have been in better hands than Mr Ong.

I have been treated very well by everyone who has been involved at the Hospital. I cannot thank you all enough for the kindness shown me. I can see much more clearly now and all the glare that I experienced has now gone, it is such a relief. I would recommend Mr Ong to anyone needing this procedure.

Mrs AH

I can see better than I have for years..


It was altogether excellent. Mr Ong explained everything at every stage and I had complete confidence in him throughout. (My optician is impressed by the outcome!!)

I was very pleased with Mr Ong, and I am pleased to say that my long eyesight is first class and need only glasses for reading.

Mr G

The treatment was done in a professional way, worked perfectly and at all time I was kept updated with everything explained to me by Mr Ong. I’m exceptionally pleased with the results.


Consultation arranged (with Mr Ong) without delay. Clear advice given that really helped. The procedures were and interesting and easy experience; 15 min from going in to being out in recovery room. Constant information on what was going on. No discomfort, no pain, just a blur of swirling bright light. Great to have such clear vision back. Thank you.


I am very pleased with the outcome, my eyesight is very good. The whole process went very well, all of the staff with whom I came into contact with were polite and efficient, as was Mr Ong. Thanks to everyone.

I could not be more impressed by my recent experience under the care of Miss Shahid. From the first consultation through to the final follow-up after my second cataract procedure Ms Shahid was thoroughly professional in her attention to detail and in her ability to make me feel at ease. She answered all our questions comprehensively, was friendly and thorough, giving us as much of her time as we needed. What’s more, Ms Shahid phoned me on the morning after each procedure. She provided excellent informative correspondence to my GP. Her support staff were excellent and I am delighted with the results.

Mrs HC

I feel extremely fortunate to have found Mr Ong. From the first interview/ examination to the end, he was extraordinarily kind and explained everything. Even during the actual operation, he explained what was happening as it progressed and was reassuring all the way.

Mrs RM

Meeting and being treated by Mr Ong has been an extremely positive experience.

Mrs AS

I have been extremely pleased with both the hospital and surgery. Mr Ong was very reassuring and I would highly recommend him.

Mrs M

The entire experience was calm and efficient and was very personal to me. Mr Ong was brilliant and very caring and I have had no complications since.


A most efficient and effective treatment (Mr Ong). All appointments were on time, operations well explained and carried out quickly. The results were excellent with both eyes now giving clear vision without the need for spectacles for general activity.

Mr R

Mr Ong radiates confidence in himself and his team. It is infectious so I was happy to place myself in his hands for the cataract operation. He also appreciates the fear of having ones eyes operated upon. The consequences of failure is in a different league to other non-life threatening surgery. He calms one’s fear by explaining what exactly will happen and then talks all the time he is operating telling one exactly what you will feel and hear every step of the way. His confidence and my confidence in him was well warranted. The outcome was a complete success.
My criterion for satisfaction with any medical procedure is whether or not i am treated as an individual, a person and not “just another patient”. Full marks to everyone.


The service I received was speedy and effective, polite and considerate and I was very satisfied overall. After cataract surgery with Mr Ong, I now have clear and perfect vision in the eye.

I cannot remember ever having such good eyesight as I have right now – and that is entirely down to you [ Miss Shahid] . I know it’s what you do but you do it so elegantly and incredibly well


Prior to cataract ops, I found Mr Ong to be extremely patient, taking time to allay my anxieties, set out my options and explain the procedure. On the day itself, the staff and Mr Ong took great care of me. I am more than satisfied with the care I received and the result achieved. Gratitude to Mr Ong and the staff.

Mrs B

Delighted with surgery and the expertise of Mr Ong. Eighteen months later, I am even more pleased with the improvement in my vision.


I found Mr Ong to be extremely caring from the onset and very focused on ensuring the best possible outcome. His level of patient care and clinical professionalism was outstanding, and the aftercare far exceeded what I would expect which was very reassuring and much appreciated. I owe the sight in my right eye to Jong’s surgical ability to whom I am very grateful.

Mr P

Received excellent attention on both cataract operations from all nursing staff and Mr Ong himself, who re-assured me at every stage thoroughly explaining each step of the procedure (which was amazingly quick!) and detailing best post-operative care.
The improvement in my vision have been astounding and will definitely enhance my quality of life. Very grateful to Mr Ong and his team.

Sir MB

Mr A

Mr Ong was always cheerful and perfectly clear about what needed doing, what he was doing and how he assessed any condition.


Very professional.
I was looked after very well.

Mrs BG

Mr Ong operated on both my cataracts, one after another. From my very first appointment I was confident that I was in excellent hands. During the recovery period, he was always available to advise and reassure me. From the day after each operation, I was amazed at the extension of my vision. It has changed my life for which I am grateful.


I was happy with the assessment, the explanation of the procedure and the surgery itself, which appears to have been very successful. Thank you.

Mrs SW

I am very satisfied with the result of my cataract operations and the aftercare by Miss Shahid.


Very pleased with the care and attention I have received. Thank you.


Miss Shahid recently carried out surgery on both eyes which was very successful and the care and attention throughout was excellent.


Miss Shahid has a very pleasant manner which puts you completely at ease with the surgery. She gives you complete confidence in the procedure. Highly recommended surgeon.


The vision in the right eye was startlingly clear – so clear that I realised that my left eye, which I had thought was perfect, was not.


As expected Miss Shahid performed my recent cataract removal with care and skill, but more than that she was kind and friendly throughout and handles the follow-up consultations with patience and clarity.


I am very happy to be a patient of Mr Ong who is very supportive, informative and caring and carries out the eye injections in a skilful and gentle way. It is comforting to know that the eye remains stable due to the ongoing treatment.
