I recently had an appointment at the Crosshouse Hospital Eye Clinic where the waiting time was very good. I had heard stories of having to wait for hours so I was pleased that I was only waiting for 10 minutes.
However, I was a bit disappointed with what happened next. During the consultation I was diagnosed with glaucoma, given eye drops and told I would have to use them for life. I was told I needed to make arrangements with my doctor for further prescriptions – I had no problem with this.
After this I was just left to go home. I was not given any information about the condition, no leaflets no advice about whether the condition would get better / worse, nothing at all.
I guess in this day of the internet people can look things up, I don’t use the internet so have been left with no information.
