"Cateract Removal"

About: Wharfedale Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

Early January I attended Wharfedale Hospital as an Out Patient for the removal of cateract in my left eye and fitting of replacment lens this was a complete success. I have had the same procedure on my right eye completed in May again the same result a complete success.

I may need a pair of spectacles for reading but I can see to type this letter on my computer without the use of spectacles with no

problems at all.

I have nothing but praise for all members of staff at the above

hospital,and I am most grateful to everyone concerned in my case

I now realise how wonderful it is to see things so clearly without the

need of spectacles.

If you are in the considering the procedure of cateract replacement

have no fear. the procedure was absolutely painless throughout.

don`t delay have the procedure done the end result is FANTASTIC.

I was really pleased to hear that your catract operation was a success. It was also good to hear your praise about the staff.

I shall make sure your comments are passed onto the staff at the hospital.
