"Good but not stunning"

What I liked

Quick & easy

Anything else?

As I was having cataract surgery, I was asked if I would like to have a lens that would cover all fields of vision, however this would cost £2400, I declined. If I was going to follow that path & have the option, I would have liked to have the opportunity of investigating the pricing in other hospitals. If this option had been made known to me before my initial consultation, I might not have declined & been able to investigate further to make a considered decision as to proceed or not.

Thank you for leaving feedback

All patients are advised of the entire range of options open to them to ensure they make an informed choice. As you indicated, the multifocal option was not something you wished to consider with us.
