"Cataract removal"

About: Burnley General Hospital

Anything else?

I was referred by my GP to Burnley Hospital as I had complete loss of vision in one eye. I was told that I had a dense cataract which needed removing. I was then booked in for the operation. I had to visit once before the operation for a fitness check up. Then on the day of the operation, I was called at 7.30 in the morning and was released an hour after the operation, to be home by about 11.30 am. The staff were extremely courteous and explained things clearly on all three visits. After my operation, I can now see well and am very pleased with the results. I cannot thank all the doctors and other staff enough for all their help and hard work.
