"Retinal Vein Occlusion"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

January 2014 I was referred to Bolton Eye Unit and was diagnosed with a Retinal Vein Occlusion in my left eye. I am a female aged 60 years with no other health issues.

To date I have received over 15+ lucentis injections.

During the first year I needed an injection every month but 20 months on I now have an injection every 8 weeks and I have been informed that I am developing a collateral circulation which hopefully means my eye circulation may return to normal.

The medical team and administration personnel have been exemplary in all of their duties from first attending the reception staff are polite prompt and friendly to the lovely nurses who administer the injections with no pain at all and then to the Consultants who decide your treatment are the best I have ever come across and would highly recommend anyone to attend the eye unit at Bolton Hospital.

I cannot find fault at all from start to finish, well done and thank you all.
