"Thanks to all involved in cataract operation"

About: Ayr Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

First time under the knife so to say. From getting to day surgery till leaving I was kept informed of my progress. The nurses and doctor spoke to me, interviewed me asking my opinion. Through all the stages I was well informed.

The operation was scary but both doctor and nurses kept me calm all through it. 15 minutes and it was over. I was terrified but at the same time calm, because of the way the nurse spoke to me and told me just to breathe through it. Big thanks to all involved, it was a success giving me full vision in my left eye. Thanks.
