Feedback

Please thank all the staff involved in the Lens Replacement Clinic for the excellent care and attention I have received from the first appointment to the completion of the work on Tuesday 10 June. The eye was superb the next morning and I felt very well, despite having been nervous about the procedure. Each member of staff have been friendly, helpful and encouraging, and whilst I was apprehensive, I actually relaxed completely during the operation. Many thanks and best wishes to all those employed in this excellent service.

Having just completed treatment for cataract removal and subsequent implants by Mrs Karen Goodall and her team, I can not thank them enough for their consideration and proficiency. I would recommend anyone considering cataract surgery to arrange a consultation as soon as possible whilst the waiting time is so short. I can now see better than any time in my life, many thanks to all concerned.
Mr Colin Short, April, 2014
I cannot find fault with the service provided. The reception staff, nurses, doctors and anaesthetists were all excellent and reassuring. Thank you for the excellent care – a great privilege to have such a clean, welcoming facility staff by such caring professionals
