"cataract operation"

About: Solihull Hospital

Anything else?

I had a cataract operation on 22nd April this year and I can honestly say it was a great experience, there were 6 people having it done that morning booked in at 8am and we had a good chat and laugh together and the nurses took our BP and gave us eye drops ready for the op. and we went in one by one and came out and had coffee and biscuits and more chat, I was the last in as they do it by age but I thought what a great way to do it as you don't feel nervous at all with others around you waiting for the same thing, the operation took less than 10 minutes at a guess and is completely painless and the surgeon tells you just what he is doing. A week on and my eye is better that it ever was, I would have no hesitation recommend it to anyone.

Many many thanks to all the helpful and very pleasant staff.
