"Cataract surgery"

About: Solihull Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

Thank you so much for the excellent care I received when I had surgery.

The eye clinic I attended a few weeks before could not be faulted, from the receptionist, nurses and consultant I was treated with great respect and kindness.

On the day of my surgery Staff nurses Vanessa, Charlotte and Student nurse Guy were so efficient and extremely kind and reassuring. The vision in my Ieft eye now is amazing. It has made a huge difference to my life. I am so very grateful to Mr Wehbeh for his skill in giving me back clearer vision also to the theatre staff for their care and kindness. Thank you to you all. I do hope I meet you all when my right cataract is removed!

The only problem for me is not being able to drive for 4 to 6 weeks as a lot of people rely on me for that including my daughter and grandchildren. I hope to hear from Mr Wehbeh's secretary tomorrow if this is the up to date advice as my insurance company won't cover me even though I have better vision than before!

Thank you to all.
