"Cataract operations"

About: Derriford Hospital

Full marks to the professor & all of his section. Had my second cataract operation on Thursday by the professor which was completed without any problems and with great professionalism . My first op was completed about 18 weeks ago by a lady surgeon and again was extremely good with absolutely no pain at all. The results of the first op were so good I couldn't wait for the second one. Now I've had them both done the sight difference is unbelievable. I can see better now than I have done for many years & also realise what I have been missing. Thank you professor & all your staff I am extremely grateful.
