"implant problem"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

Whist a lens implant in my right eye was successful, one in my left eye became detached. It then proved impossible to place a second implant in the usual position, so a new one had to be attached to my iris. I now have vision in both eyes. I cannot speak highly enough of the care and consideration with which I was treated by the consultant, their colleagues and team. This is something especially appreciated by an old patient. With gratitude and sincere thanks to all concerned.
