"Couldn't of been better!"

About: Manchester Royal Eye Hospital

I have had a lot of squint surgeries throughout my life and visited a lot of hospitals but from beginning to end, they have been perfect. I had a bit of wait for my pre-op but once I was seen, I had a weeks wait then was in having my eye operation! The staff were very professional, helpful and were constantly checking up on me from the moment I walked in (very nervous) and then finally leaving. I forgot to take my nail varnish off and a nurse only noticed as I was heading to surgery they just smiled and took me back to get it taken off, I was expecting to get told off but they just removed it. I was given lunch and dinner, water when I needed it and my blood pressure was taken regularly. From the porters to the surgeons, I was really treated well and made to feel at ease. My eye is healing well and I am so happy. Thankyou :)
