"cataract surgery"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

i had cataract surgery 2 years ago, both eyes. within months i had developed blurred vision. i was diagnosed with dry eye. a further 3 visits to the optician did not result in a referral. i went to my gp who eventually referred me to the eye hospital september 2015. saw a doctor january 19, and was told i needed laser surgery which would be about 2 weeks. it is now late february and i am totally blind in both eyes and have suffered falls down stairs and trips because of lack of vision.
