Moorfields has been recognised as being outstanding for surgical services by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in March 2019. Inspectors commented that the care within surgical services for patients is “innovative” and provides “excellent emotional and practical support to patients.” Staff were praised for their compassionate care and the report highlighted that feedback from patients confirmed that staff were “caring and treated them with kindness.”

Sharmina works with Mr Shakti Vyas, Specialist Optometrist, experienced in Cataract & Refractive Surgery assessment at Moorfields NHS and Private Eye Hospitals and is an external examiner for the College of Optometrists.
