"Very pleased with cataract sugery at Wharfedale Hospital"

About: Wharfedale Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

I am a 46 year old male who was told "you're young to have cataracts". Well that aside, my exprience with the surgery was first class. I had to have both eyes done.

I would like to thank Mr James Ball and his team for their help. I was quite frightened about it all but they put me at easy.

The results are brillant. At the moment I do not need my glasses and more vision is exellent.

The only thing i think could help other patients is to dispel the chat that frightened several old ladies who were waiting for their first op when i was having my second eye done. Their friends had told them of a great big needle that would hurt so much! I soon put them straight and the lady who went down first came back with a big smile on her face and did go on to sign up for her second eye doing.

Anyway thats me now with great vision. Thanks again Mr Ball!
