A few words from Mr Quinn…

“My aim is to ensure patients have the least possible need for glasses after surgery and to correct any astigmatism. Listening to patients is the key to achieving a patient’s visual goals.

“I personally guarantee my patients will see me for an in-depth consultation prior to surgery; whereby I will evaluate which surgery is most appropriate and then, upon the patient’s approval, undertake the surgery and follow this up with a further check-up to ensure all is satisfactory. All of my patients receive my home and mobile contact details should an urgent concern arise.”

Mr Quinn and his fellow Ophthalmic Surgeons work very closely together to ensure all Exeter Eye patients have access to an experienced Consultant Eye Surgeon at all times.
