About: Sunderland Eye Infirmary

Anything else?

I'm a 17 year old girl and have always had problems with my eyes ever since I had got contact dermatitis with an unknown substance since I was younger. I suffer from hay fever too which does not make my eyes any better. Over the past two years I have been frequently in and out of this hospital due to different eye problems from conjunctivitis to the worst being blepharitus and meimbomian cysts at the same time which one of the Doctor's said is the worst he has ever seen! In this hospital I have always been treat with care and always advised if their has ever been a delay and offered a free coffee if I have ever been waiting long which is one in the whole 18 times I have been here and that's due to a fatal accident concerning someones eye.

I have always received the best treatment and not once have they mentioned anything about my not wanting surgery on my eye and eyelids and have always gave me the best medication out there which have helped my blepharitus and meimbomian cysts go away!

Unfortunately, as I am writing this I can feel a meimbomian cyst developing on my eyelid as they can be reoccurring so I will be visiting this hospital tomorrow after college and I am not worried about the standards of this hospital and I know it will over exceed my expectations once more and the care and respect is absolutely amazing. I applaud all of the members of staff at the Eye Infirmary for making it such a clean and friendly environment.
