"Recent Eye Surgery at Hull Eye Hospital"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

Both my wife and I developed cataracts in both eyes and we were referred to the Hull Eye Hospital for treatment.

The treatment we had from the whole team was exemplary from the booking in, through the initial preparation by nurses to the anaesthetist and on to the surgeon, we were given first class care and at every stage we were talked through the coming procedure which prevented a great deal of worry. Submitting to any surgery is daunting but eye surgery is doubly so.
