"Cataract operations - excellent service"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

Had cataract operations in September (right eye) and November 2015 (left eye) and very successful.

Was surprised at how short a time (5 weeks) I had to wait for the first op once I had seen the consultant.

My long vision has improved, eg, can now go round the supermarket without glasses.

Due shortly to collect a new pair of bifocals – whilst most of the time, I could manage without glasses, I would prefer my vision to be the best it can be.

I found the Consultant and all staff caring, kind and cheerful.

Many thanks to you all for excellent service.
