"Stress free cataract operation"

About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital

I just wanted to say what an amazing team you have in your ophthalmic suite my husband came today for a cataract operation and from being greeted by a staff member who fully explained everything ,administered drops and made him feel completely at ease to being taken by a staff member to the operating theatre whose sense of humour is ideal for all his patients .The whole experience was stress free and he even enjoyed tea and biscuits when he had come back from surgery .Thankyou everyone .

Response from Kent & Canterbury Hospital

I am really pleased to learn about your husband's experience of his eye operation.

Good humour is often good medicine as well!

I do hope that he is now fully recovered from his procedure.
