"Reassuring care for cataract operation"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

I was diagnosed by Mr Wilson as needing cataract treatment in both eyes. As my wife had had the operation in both eyes and was delighted with it, I did not find the prospect as terrifying as I would have otherwise, but it is still quite frightening.

Mr Wilson and members of his team were excellent at reassuring me and both operations were carried out within a few weeks of the diagnosis. Communication by letter and telephone was excellent in this department.

I am currently on the third day since the second operation and the eye is beginning to feel more comfortable and less bloodshot. My vision is now excellent.
