"Inconsistent experience of 2 cataract operations"

About: Dr Gray's Hospital / Ophthalmology (Eye Problems)

(as the patient),

My first op was a great success. I had laser surgery to correct the few "floaters" that appeared - the Dr. was deliberate and steady.

However I had a different Dr. for the follow up laser surgery where as the first Dr. was steady etc. this one seemed in a rush - the laser treatment I got felt like a machine gun (long, very fast and painful)

I am worried about accepting any more treatment ( I still have Floaters ).

I don't know how to proceed. Am I worrying needlessly?
