I had surgery to repair a hole in my macula in right eye on 18th november 2014. The nurses and surgeon gave excellent care before, during and after the procedure. I felt no pain during the 2 hour op and only needed the occasional paracetamol afterwards. the gas bubble incerted meant my sight was blurry for two weeks and I was very tired the first week. My eye also felt dazzled by bright light. Everything was explained in the leaflets I was given. I rang the ward to ask if I could wear a contact lens in my good eye- they were very helpful. after 4 weeks I saw my surgeon again who gave me the all clear to resume swimming, all activities and fly. I have just been to my opticians and my right eye is much improved. Im very pleased and satisfied with the outcome. My thanks to all involved.
