I am currently recovering from surgery to repair a large tear in my retina and reattach it. I am so very grateful for the prompt action of both my own optometrist and then the hospital. It all happened over a weekend but well within 24 hours of diagnosis at my own optometrist, a full team had come in on Sunday morning to operate. They were friendly, reassuring and efficient but also very clear and honest about what was going on. I cannot thank the staff enough - from the surgeon and team to the ward staff as well as the kind person who brought me a hot lunch afterwards. These people take their jobs seriously and thanks to them the sight in my left eye is hopefully saved.
