"Retinal Laser Treatment"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I attended the Medical Retina Unit on the morning of 10/6/15 for Laser treatment. I was extremely nervous but was soon put at ease by the receptionist and nursing staff. The Ophthalmologist was very caring and did the procedure extremely efficiently,all the time constantly checking to make sure I was alright. Afterwards I was so at ease I fainted! Everyone was so kind and caring and made sure I was perfectly OK before I left. Thank you all so much and the whole team is a credit to the Hospital.
