What Dr Carr’s patients say about him

My surgeon was brilliant, and I felt no discomfort throughout the whole procedure. I can now see as soon as I wake up and can go swimming without having to worry about my eyes getting wet.

Tonya Ceyhan

Everything was executed to the highest level of professional and technical calibre; I was made to feel at ease all the way through the process. I now describe my vision as “HD” compared to standard before.
