"Chalizion removal"

About: Moorfields Eye Hospital (City Road)

I had to go to Moorfields for a chalizion removal on my upper right eyelid. I'd had this same operation the previous year overseas in Australia and it was a horrible experience- the aneathetic didn't work and the doctor was struggling with certain things I was writhing in pain throughout the whole thing and my sister who was sat in the room with me could also see I was in a lot of discomfort- this made me nervous about my operation but the staff were great as soon as I arrived the were friendly and proffessional and settled my nerves the operation was painless. I was by myself on this day I wanted to give credit to the nurse who operated on me and their assistant thanks very much keep up the good work! :-)
