"I wan't looking forward to my cararact operation!"

About: Wharfedale Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

Two weeks ago I had a cataract operation on my right eye - a procedure that I was not looking forward to.

But from the moment I walked into Ward 3 at Wharfedale Hospital I received excellent care. The ward nurses and theatre staff were friendly, knowledgable and informative and soon put me at ease. The operation was painless and quickly completed and I am grateful to the surgeon, Mr James Ball.

Ever since, my eyesight has been much better and I can appreciate detail in whatever I am looking at much more. I cannot speak too highly of Whafedale Hospital and hope to have surgery on the cataract in my left eye in the near future.
