"Cataract surgery"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

On the 14th October 2015 I had Cataract surgery on my right eye performed.

The nurses who looked after me were wonderful - so helpful and informative. On arrival I was naturally a little apprehensive, but all the pre-op procedures were so gentle and easy that I felt relaxed and confident about the operation. The consultant surgeon and assistant did a fantastic job and have given me back the most precious gift of sight. I no longer need distance glasses and I only need a small prescription for reading. I wouldn't have believed that it would be possible to have such wonderful vision again and would encourage anyone, what ever their age to have this procedure done, if they are lucky enough to get the chance. Thank you so much to everyone at Ward H2 and also to the NHS.
