I had an appointment to have cataract surgery which I intended to have general anaesthesia, and was prepared to spend time after the op' before going home.
One of the medical team spoke with me and explained to me what was about to happen and with advice from previous patients I was reluctantly persuaded to go ahead with only local numbing. Even on the operating table I felt very vulnerable. This was totally painless and I'm glad I took advice.
I cannot find any reason not to have a repeat performance on my other eye, in fact I am now waiting for my next appointment. Well done to all concerned you deserve all the praise possible.
