"Swelling on lower eyelid"

About: Moorfields Eye Hospital (City Road)

May I thank all the staff I encountered on my recent visit to your A&E department . I have a lump on my lower eyelid which I was very worried about . I phoned the hospital who advised me to attend the A&E dept . I live in the middle of Sussex , so I was anxious to attend . On arrival I was processed quickly and efficiently . I was seen by 4 persons from receptionist to the clinician , all of whom where charming and professional . I arrived at 2.30 pm and was seen ,diagnosed, and discharged by 3.05 pm ! A fantastic result . I have been diagnosed with Blepharitis and I am to soon attend outpatients clinic for some minor surgery to remove the blockage in my gland . Once again my thanks to all who run this efficient and professional department .
