"From my first consultation with Mr. Golchin at the cork eye clinic to my cataract operation on both eyes at the Bon Secours Hospital, I found the whole experience excellent and I am very happy with the results. Mr. Golchin's dedication and expertise have been superb. During the procedures Mr. Golchin explained fully in a very reassuring manner each step of the procedure and allayed my fears that I may have had. I experienced no discomfort whatsoever. The post-op assessments were very thorough. Many thanks again to Mr. Golchin, his assistants and efficient & courteous medical secretaries."

Eileen Connery (December 2022)
"Mr. Golchin and his team are wonderful, efficient, very professional, always helpful and kind. I was very nervous about having cataract surgery- I needed both eyes operated on and had them done two months apart. Everyone at the Bon Secours Hospital in Cork were reassuring and caring. Mr. Golchin came and spoke to me before each operation and was very understanding. The procedure itself was really straight forward. I cant believe the difference the operations have made my sight, which is now really clear and sharp- its like having my young eyes back again! A huge thank-you to Mr. Golchin and his staff, I feel very lucky to have such excellent eye care. "

Dr Hennessy (March 2021)
"For most people 2020 was a terrible year, nothing but Covid and lockdowns, for me it was the year I got my eyesight back.
I've been wearing reading glasses since I was 7 years old. The optic nerve in my right eye never really developed so I had to rely on my left eye to provide me with adequate sight, with a prescription in my right eye to help balance it.
This continued right through my childhood, adolescence, then through adulthood until my 40's. At that stage, my left eye had also began to fail, so, "call it vanity", I decided to opt for laser surgery.
This unfortunately only lead to further complications and so was back to wearing glasses, 18 months after the treatment, with an eye prescription worse than ever.
I knew by my early 50's my eyesight was in a serious state. Even with glasses everything was a blur and going in the wrong direction. I decided to seek further help, so for 3 years I visited eye specialists in Cork and Dublin hoping for a solution.
Nobody wanted to know me after my failed eye operations and poor sight, except one man, MR Behrooz Golchin, a man I credit for saving my eyesight.
Within 3 months I got synthetic lenses for both eyes. 12 months later I am still in disbelief of what he was able to do to correct my eyesight.
Thank you Mr Golchin
John Lynch (March 2021)
"As you know, I had no sight in my right eye, so when I learned that I had a fast growing cataract in my left eye, naturally I was fearful. However, your thorough explanation of the surgical procedure to remove the cataract put me at ease. I went into surgery confident that I was in capable hands.
Be assured of my deep appreciation for your expertise and professionalism. Because of these I now have perfect sight in my left eye.
Thanks you from the bottom of my heart."
Noreen Murray (July 2019)
"I recently had a cataract removed by Mr Golchin. The experience, from start to finish of the procedure, was calm, reassuring and a success. Not only is Mr Golchin an excellent surgeon but also an active listener with excellent communication skills. On any of my visits to his clinic he encouraged questions, listened attentively and continued to reassure me.
This was very important as I was extremely nervous about the whole procedure.
Mr Golchin performed an outstanding surgery. I had absolutely no pain or irritation, 20/20 vision now in both eyes and feeling 10 years younger. What more can you ask of an excellent surgeon."
Rose Donnery (July 2019)
"Thank you so much. My eyesight is so clear now. God bless you."
Carol Shine (June 2019)
"After visiting you last Thursday I started applying your prescription drops and ointment 6 nights ago. I have had wonderful results! I am sleeping comfortably for the first time in years. As you know I had been waking very frequently - up to 5 times, with extremely dry eyes, which was distressing and painful.
This is like a miracle for me. I now have hope for the future and thank you most sincerely for your diagnosis, concern and care for my eyes. I wish you and your team every success at the Cork Eye Clinic."
Audrey Donovan (April 2019)
"Everyone at your clinic are the kindest, most helpful people I have ever met. I just wanted to thank you and let you know how much I appreciate everything you have done for me Mr Golchin. I will never be able to thank you enough and I will be forever grateful. "

Marian Hogan (Oct 2017)
"I would like to thank you once again for the surgery you performed to remove my cataracts. I expected an excellent result and I have not been disappointed.
It has, as I told you last week, been a life changing experience for me and all the small things, that we take for granted when we are young, have been restored to me.
I can now see every leaf on every tree and every petal on my roses from my sitting room - I am so grateful.
Please would you also pass on to your staff, my thanks for always being so considerate and helpful. "
Lenore Campbell (August 2016)
"Many thanks for the recent eye operation. My vision has improved amazingly!"
"Thank you so very much for restoring my eyesight. Every day I look around me and admire colours, countryside but not the dust, cobwebs and spiders (on Valium now!!) I cannot believe that I have 20:20 vision at my age. Take care of your gifted hands. Many, many thanks again. "
"Dear Mr. Golchin, Greetings from Nigeria. I hope you are well as this leaves me thank God. This is just a short note to thank you very much for the wonderful job you did on my eye on 21st July. I can now read without glasses. My long distance sight is also better.
I hope all your family are keeping very well. Once again my profound gratitude for the great care you have taken of me. May God bless you, your family and your great work today and always!"
"I am most grateful and delighted with my treatment for cataract removal and YAG laser treatment to remove blurry vision two and a half years ago. I found Mr. Golchin very kind and extremely professional as I had both procedures carried out by him in the Bon Secours hospital. His explanations and calm reassuring manner helped to allay my fears. I highly recommend his services and so thankful that I was lucky enough to hear about him. The clinic staff have also been very helpful and friendly."
"Like looking through a misty pane,
Everything seems drab and grey,
Then Mr. Golchin's skillful hands,
Opened the door to a clearer land.
Dust and cobwebs, now I see,
Passing spiders wink at me!
Wrinkles on my face and neck -
Heavens above - I look a wreck!
But I can see bright colours,
Little birds upon the trees
And hills and distant valleys,
That for long evaded me.
How wonderful the advances made in medical R and D,
And Mr. Golchin's gifted hand,
That restored good spirit to me.
"My son David has been a patient of Mr. Golchin's for 5 years with an on-going, often aggressive eye problem. Without exception Mr. Golchin has always been a pleasure to deal with. He always addressed both David and I in all consultations as individuals and as a family. This has been very important particularly when David was younger. Parents don't like seeing their children unwell so a supportive Doctor is a huge asset. We have had to make some difficult decisions regarding David's treatments over the years and Mr. Golchin has always been honest and expert in these treatments including a few operations over the years. We wish him all the best in his new consulting rooms."
"Mr. Behrooz Golchin has been my Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon for two years.
His consulting rooms immediately relax me before I have my meetings and operations with Mr. Golchin. I have had several eye tests and operations with Mr. Golchin.
Mr. Golchin prepared me for every step of the operation in detail and as a result I have absolute confidence in him.
I am 100% completely satisfied with the results of my operation and dealings with Mr. Golchin who in my estimation is a thorough gentleman."
"At 65, I now have better vision than when I was 17. I was required to wear glasses for driving (driver eye test). I now have 20/20 vision at a time in my life when I would be expected to be getting reduced vision.
This is all down to Mr. Behrooz Golchin's expert skill and care. I have had both my cataracts removed and a retinal tear repaired using laser surgery. Fantastic! Now, if I could find a Mr. Behrooz Golchin who specialised in weight management, I would be home and dry..
My sincere thank to Mr. Behrooz Golcin and his team. Keep up the good work!"
"A year ago, Mr. Golchin treated me for the removal of cataracts. It was a complete success and I am very very pleased with the results.
I am very grateful to him for his expertise and professionalism. He inspired trust and confidence. I was treated with kindness and respect in a calm, relaxed atmosphere. I was allowed to engage with the process to the extent that I need to, yet was never overwhelmed by too many technical details or jargon. It was indeed, a very positive experience."
"Dear Mr. Golchin,
I thought I would let you know that I am really pleased with the results of the laser treatment. The world is definitely a much brighter place!
It is now over five years since I first attended your clinic and at all times, I have been treated with great care, courtesy and kindness. The new clinic and the web site is excellent. I am sure it will be a great help to people with problems.
I will certainly recommend the clinic and the web site to my friends.
Thank you again"
"After surgery on both eyes, my eyesight is perfect again. Meeting Mr. Golchin was from the start pleasant and all procedures were fully explained.
Mr. Golchin and staff made such a relaxed impression in their new clinic on the Western Road, this has been an experience with great results. Thank you.
"Being of a nervous disposition, I was dreading having someone examine my eyes. On speaking to my optician, I asked him if he could recommend an Ophthalmic Surgeon to help me with my Glaucoma and cataracts. Without hesitation he recommended Mr. Golchin. On meeting Mr. Golchin I was immediately put at ease. He examined my eyes and explained the problems with them and what treatment he was going to do. I am delighted with the treatment I have received from Mr. Golchin and his very friendly and helpful staff at Cork Eye Clinic. I would highly recommend that you visit them."
"I was terrified of anybody touching my eyes. I went to see Mr. Golchin and subsequently had my first cataract removed. I could not believe the difference it made to my sight. Now I have had the 2nd cataract removed, I don't need to wear glasses any more. Thank you Mr. Golchin!"
"For doing such a great job on my mother's eyes - we really appreciate it - she's a new woman!"
"My recent eye surgery performed by Dr Golchin, at the Bon Secours hospital, and at Suite 7 & 8 Cork Eye Clinic was a complete success. Grateful thanks to Mr Golchin and his secretary for the relaxed atmosphere during and after surgery, thus removing any anxiety or stress, relating to my sight problems. My Sincere thanks."
"Dear Mr Golchin, Thanks you so very very much for changing my life. I am so much more independant. Every aspect of my life is brighter. I now enjoy my sight instead of hating it."
"I , Testify the following: Misdiagnosed approx 3 months. First Consultation and examination by Mr. Golchin, I was finally diagnosed correctly and commenced appropriate and successful treatments. Consistently shown empathy and expertise. Consultations always conducive to calm and sound understanding between patient and doctor. Simply a marvellous Doctor and shows exceptional Patient Manner."
"After visiting my G.P regarding my failing eyesight, I was diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes. I was sent for a consultation with Mr Golchin.
Mr Golchin met me in late January 2012. He planned for removal of the cataracts with the procedure to be scheduled during the following two months. As I was extremely nervous. I requested that the procedure be carried out under full anaesthetic. The first procedure, for removal of the cataracts was carried out on 27th February, 2012, followed by the second and final procedure being carried out on 30th March, 2012.
My vision now. at 20/20, is better than it has been in many years. I have returned to driving and take the simple things, which were once almost impossible, in my stride.
My Entire experience with Mr Golchin was very satisfactory and I highly recommend him to anyone contemplating eye surgery. "
"My sincere and grateful thanks to Mr. Behrooz Golchin for his expertise and kindly consideration and care."
