It's now over four weeks since I had cataract surgery on my left eye at Raigmore Hospital. I have an appointment with my optician on Monday and I am hoping that he will confirm my eye a success.
My vision in it is excellent and I am a much happier and more confident person as a result. I paid privately for this operation as the cataracts were extremely fast and I had found myself unable to drive or work in a matter of weeks from diagnosis.
Once the optician has filled in the necessary paperwork and returned it to Raigmore I await notification of when my right eye is scheduled for surgery on the NHS. I believe the normal time between procedures is six weeks so am hoping for an appointment soon.
