My son is 5 and has intermittent squint eyes. We consider to have it done in moorfields. Did anyone do squint surgery in moorfields and any good surgeon recommended? Many thanks!

I had squint surgery as an adult there in 2009. After the op they adjusted the stitch and scratched my cornea. I was in agony and ended up on Morphine. I had to stay in and was never charged which to me is an admission of liability. In short I would not recommend Moorefields

Oh so sorry to hear that. May I know who your surgeon was?
