From my very first consultation Miss Shams inspired confidence. I found her to be professional, positive and very easy to talk to and I felt that she understood my needs thoroughly.On the day of the operation, she was reassuring and I also very much appreciated the fact that she called me afterwards that evening to check how I was. The next day when I removed the dressing, I could already see an improvement and her clear aftercare instructions meant that looking after the eyelid was straightforward.During my recovery period, she always responded promptly to any questions and even moved her timetable around to ensure that my stitches were removed before the Christmas holiday.It is now one month since the operation, and the height and shape of the eyelid is much more commensurate with the other and indeed feels more comfortable than it did before. It is exactly in line with what I wanted to achieve with revision surgery. It feels like a Christmas miracle! But of course, it is really all down the skill and expertise of Miss Shams. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone seeking eyelid surgery.

I saw Ms Shams in August 23 for initial consultation at Moorfield Hospital. She explained the procedure, recovery time and possible risks. All of my questions were answered.I went for right upper eyelid surgery on 18th of September 23. Ms Shams was so kind and compassionate. Everything went so smooth. I took the bandage off next day. I was surprised to see how cleaned my eye was. I had light swelling which was gone down in couple of days. Follow up appointment was through!She did a brilliant job. Im so delighted with the results and no scaring. She didn't fall short on any step. I would highly recommend her!

I have had weak eyelid muscles all my life (inherited from my dad) and hadn’t really appreciated how much they restricted my vertical vision range. Recently however they were getting worse, to the extent that I had to tilt my head back slightly in order to look directly forward.Following an initial consultation with Ms Pari Shams I underwent a surgical procedure to address this - “Bilateral upper eyelid ptosis repair using silicone brow suspension” It was performed under local anaesthetic and a day case. I have to be honest I had all sorts of (probably irrational) fears about this - given it was only local anaesthetic would I be awake during the whole operation? would I see what was happening? etc. All these fears were ungrounded and although I had to be conscious for the final part of the surgery it wasn’t anything like the nightmare I thought it might be.Through all the pre- and post-operative time I have really appreciated the care shown me by Ms Pari Shams, and am delighted with the results of the operation. I have noticed a significant improvement in my vision and field of vision, and also the way I look to other people (despite some expected swelling initially).My daughter and others have commented on how they can now see my eyes (for almost the first time) and can now tell that I am paying attention to them and not just falling asleep!I have had an uneventful post-operative recovery, with my eyes being comfortable with no light sensitivity, discharge or dryness (though the world has seemed a brighter place since it was done).I can really say that the improvement has been life changing, and again would like to thank Ms Shams for the care and attention she has (and is continuing) to give me.

I saw Dr. Shams at Moorfields for ptosis correction. My whole experience has been incredible. The surgery was quick and painless but what was more impressive was how quickly I noticed the results. Post surgery I was stunned at how clean and neat my eye looked, swelling and bruising was minimal. I took painkillers only twice post surgery which must be unheard of! 2 weeks later with the stitches now removed I have some minor swelling still but zero bruising. Thank you to Dr Shams and the amazing team at Moorfields Croydon. This has exceeded all my expectations. I would 100% recommend Dr Shams. Thank you so much.

I’m incredibly grateful to Miss Shams! I was suffering significantly and after all the ophthalmologists I saw, she was the only one that helped towards a correct diagnosis. I found her to be very attentive, a critical thinker, and proactive. My only criticism would be a lack of warmth. However, over the many doctors I have seen in recent years, including surgeries, I’ve realised that the best doctors are not always the ones that come across as the friendliest; I appreciated her skilled directness. Thank you!

I am very happy to give [unsolicited] feedback on my experiences with surgeon Miss Pari Shams who completed a Bilateral ptosis repair and upper eyelid blepharoplasty on 10.01.2023.The whole experience, from visiting her at Moorfields Eye hospital was smooth, well organised and pleasant. From first meeting/consultation to surgery took only 6 days - it was a great relief not having to wait anxiously for a long time for what i assumed would be a really unpleasant experience. In the event Miss Shams' reassurances were justified and the operation was carried out totally pain free, in comfort and with a feeling of safety. During the healing process at home Miss Shams was on hand to readily and promptly answer all my queries and concerns however trivial.The procedure has been a great success: My eyes look clear and bright and not having droopy eyelids has made a great difference to my everyday life - i can drive, read and paint [i am an artist] in comfort, with a bonus that i no longer need to wear glasses except for reading.

I came to see Dr Shams, because the Moorfields Eye hospital has a world renowned reputation of excellence. The experience with Dr Shams did not fall short of that. Dr Shams explained the procedure in detail to me in a professional and personable fashion. I never felt like a mere “number” like so many times before with other doctors. The result of the surgery is excellent and the care throughout by Dr Shams and her colleagues was excellent as well. My friends with a background in medicine -surgeons themselves- all told me, what a good “job” Dr Shams had done. I suffered almost no bruising or swelling and had zero complications. I would recommend Dr Shams without any hesitations.

I had a bilateral upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty procedure and found Miss Shams to be excellent from the initial consultation through to the aftercare. I was very pleased with the surgery carried out and Miss Shams made herself available in the days following surgery to ensure that everything was fine.

I recently had surgery to correct ptosis on one of my eyelids. The initial consultation was very informative and Dr Shams was confident regarding a positive outcome however she also made sure my expectations were realistic. Prior to the operation I was worried about the results but I can now say that I am so so pleased and happy with the outcome, I would recommend primarily her skill but also her kind and friendly manner.

Dr Shams has been my ophthalmologist since the start of 2020. Following an issue with my eye, Pari was extremely quick to arrange tests and follow up consultations with her so that a diagnosis could be reached. This made all the difference in terms of the speed with which I received treatment. Since then she has regularly been treating me to ensure comfort and longevity in my vision. She is a kind and compassionate doctor that always explains complex issues in easy to understand terms, as well as being highly responsive. I owe Pari a huge debt of gratitude and having had a consistently excellent experience, I’d be more than happy to recommend her services to friends, family, or anyone in search of a quality ophthalmologist.

On the 5th march 2022 I underwent surgery on both my upper eyelids. From the first consultation with Miss Pari Shams I found her to be kind, friendly and very professional. She quickly dispelled any anxiety I had. I had an appointment for surgery 2 weeks later. On the day surgery went very smoothly Miss Shams and her team inspired confidence and made me very comfortable.The results are fantastic! I am so glad I had it done. I didn't experience any post operative problems and her aftercare was very thorough. I would strongly recommend Miss.Shams to anyone. Thank you very, very much!

She has performed several eyelid surgical procedures on me and I would not want to see anyone else.She has always clearly explained the procedures, risks and charges. I am extremely satisfied with the results of her work. Miss Shams’ after care has also exceeded my expectations - she has checked in on me via phone and email when needed and has been available for questions outside of appointments.

We saw Miss Shams privately after being seen on the NHS as we did not want to wait 3 months for a second appointment/possible treatment. We were delighted to get an appointment with her the next day and were able to have a minor procedure performed too. We were initially quite nervous but Miss Shams was extremely reassuring, patient, kind and caring throughout both visits we made. She juggled her diary around twice to accommodate us. We are extremely grateful to her and have absolutely no hesitation to provide the highest recommendation. THANK YOU MISS SHAMS!

“I thought about having upper blepharoplasty for two years and during this time I fully researched the treatment. I wanted to have the procedure carried out by a surgeon who only operated on the eye area rather than a general cosmetic surgeon. I also wanted to have my treatment at Moorefields, again because the hospital only specialises in eye care.

I found Ms Pari Shams very warm and reassuring as well as extremely professional. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and listened carefully to my hopes for the treatment result. I was very keen that I look natural after the procedure (I would rather have more work done in 7 or 10 years time than look startled now). She took all of this on board and really understood me.

The first photo was taken the day before my surgery. As you can see my upper eyelids looked heavy and I felt that they made me look tired. I wanted them to feel lighter and for my upper eyelashes to be more prominent rather than hidden by the crease of my lid.

On the day of my operation (mid June 2023), I discussed the possibility of not being sedated. I knew that the local anaesthetic would prevent the operation being uncomfortable and thought that perhaps it was unnecessary, but after a discussion with both Ms Shams and the very kind anaesthetist I took their advice and was given a mild sedation. I was comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure and able to speak to Ms Shams when I wanted to.

After the operation, which I think took around an hour, I was wheeled back to my room with patches over my eyes that felt reassuringly firm. After an hour the nurse removed my patches and a light meal was brought to me and soon after husband came to collect me.

That evening Ms Shams phoned me at home to ask how I felt and to make sure that I fully understood how to look after my eyes. I told her I had had a bit of a headache when I got back from the hospital and took paracetamol, she said that was just from the anaesthetic and I shouldn’t feel any more pain, she was absolutely correct, my eyes didn’t ever hurt. Ms Shams called again the second evening to check on my and told me I could contact her any time if I was concerned.

The second photo was taken two weeks post op and the third was taken today at the end of September (3 months post op).

I am absolutely delighted with my lovely new look. They look very natural, brighter and younger. Strangely, the thing that I enjoy most is the larger field of vision that the procedure has given me, which makes me feel younger too!

Thank you so much Ms Shams, I’m so happy!”
