"So grateful for successful detached retina repair"

About: Maidstone District General Hospital

I wish to thank the surgeon and the team for the successful operation on my detached retina in May this year.

The more so because I didn't report to my optician until 5 weeks after the loss of vision in one eye occurred, due to my mistaken idea that it was an inevitable and incurable consequence of my multiple sclerosis. In spite of this delay, vision was fully restored.

My heartfelt thanks. A Happy Christmas and Good New Year to all involved
