Bettersight Advanced Eye & Vision Consultancy
Bettersight is a unique type of specialist advanced eye care provider. We exist for no other reason than to provide the very highest level of surgical and medical eye care.
Our aspiration is not just to be ‘good enough’ but to achieve international acclaim for clinical excellence. We focus our full attention on a small range of specialist eye care services in which we can command full mastery. We aim for organic expansion of our services by seeking out and cultivating only the very best people to help deliver our services.
One of the goals of our founder and Medical Director, Mr Shafiq Rehman, was to allow a culture of transparency to flourish in our organisation. We are therefore fully committed to publishing clear, honest and transparent results arising from our treatments and we are now extending this approach to all patients who seek a consultation with us too.
Healthcare is however more than just managing diseases and conditions. At Bettersight we recognise that eye care is delivered to people – not just their eyes ! – we treat all our patients as indivduals and not ‘conditions’ because the care of the person is at the very heart of all that we do in medicine. Personal attention and unsurpassed ‘old fashioned’ patient care and excellent ‘bedside manners’ are equally important in delivering the consistently high quality patient experience that every patient deserves- every time.
Healthcare providers like Bettersight can rightly be judged on the quality of their medical personnel, the quality of the support staff and also on the technology they have access to. At Bettersight we can claim excellence in all three areas. Medical Director Mr Rehman quotes “It is however the culture of an organisation that is the fourth and final element that leads to true excellence”. This culture is invisible, intangible and almost impossible to define but as Mr Rehman suggests “It may be hard to define but it is always palpable when its there and obvious when it is not”.
We believe that with Bettersight – our culture of excellence will be palpable to you.
Our Promise : We leave no stone unturned in working with you to meet your objectives.

- Medical Director - Mr Shafiq Rehman
Bettersight is the brainchild of our medical director Mr Shafiq Rehman. As well as creating Bettersight, Mr Rehman is also one of the busiest eye surgeons in the UK with specialist interests in the following areas:
- Vision Correction – Expertise in Clarivu™ Lens Replacement, LASIK, LASEK and contact lens implants
- Customised Cataract Surgery – Expertise in Advanced custom lens implants
- Macular Degeneration – With special expertise in vision rehabilitation using advanced telescopic lens implants.
Mr Rehman has amassed 20 years experience in eye surgery and medical eye care, 11 of these years as a consultant. He has performed literally well over ten thousand surgical procedures during his career.
Shafiq lives and works in Yorkshire, where he completed his advanced specialist ophthalmic surgical training. He was appointed as Consultant at Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Trust in 2002. A great pioneer of breakthrough treatments, he has distinguished himself on numerous occasions by spearheading major ophthalmic developments and as such has successfully notched up several noteworthy ‘firsts’ in the Yorkshire region and beyond.
Never one to rest on former achievements, he continues to devote much time and energy towards further innovation with particular emphasis on helping to encourage the adoption of new ideas wherever they have been clearly proven to help improve the lives of his patients. He works tirelessly to identify innovative new developments in macular degeneration, cataract surgery and vision correction technology, bringing major advancements in eye care from around the world.
Outside his working life, Shafiq spends as much time as possible with his wife, four children and one lazy labradoodle and a lively Bichon frise.
He has long held great interests in cosmology, evolutionary science and in the history of medical and scientific endeavours.
Recently he re-kindled a long lost interest in golf spurred on by one of his sons who torments and inspires him in equal measure!
Shafiq also remains an avid traveller and hopes one day to circumnavigate the world but probably not until he has hung up his operating gloves !
