A very welcoming and helpful staff, the procedure its self was easy and painless. Such a professional service from making initial appointment right through to after care. I was looked after very well from the first interview until my check up. Thank you.


Polite and professional staff, equipment and surgeons was excellent. Thank you Solasta Healthcare. Very happy.


I had a lens implant and cataracts removed in one eye. Excellent, friendly and yet very professional service from the first phone call to walking out with treatment complete. Very good experience.


I attended Solasta in Omagh for a cataract procedure I was looked after at all times by very helpful staff. From my initial consultations to the after care everyone was professional, friendly and very informative. My biggest concern was seeing what was going on but you see nothing. I had no pain during or after my surgery and my eyesight is amazing both distance and reading. I would highly recommend Solasta Healthcare.


Solasta were great the whole way through. The staff at Omagh were particularly helpful in fitting me in and understood the special circumstances. The reception, testing and operation staff were all excellent. The operation was really straightforward.

I could never have imagined what a brilliant difference this procedure as made, 20/20 vision is my best way to describe it can't wait for my other eye to be done.


Absolutely fantastic staff from receptionist to pre-operative assessment team I was very nervous but all the staff were very reassuring. I would like to thank all the staff and especially the surgeon for explaining about the surgery for making my eye sight clear and I did not feel anything. Thank you all for your wonderful care


I had my surgery with Solasta Healthcare. A very good service from beginning to end. Reception staff friendly, medical staff very nice and professional. Entire duration of cataract removal appointment was an hour and a half, pain free procedure and family member allowed to stay with you right up until entering operation room. Excellent
