"Fantastic service from the Orthoptic Department"

About: Good Hope Hospital

My son was referred to this department as a result of a routine check in school. He had very limited sight in his one eye that we didn't know about. We've been seen by the Orthoptic Department several times now and mainly have dealt with the Specialist Orthoptist. Today we were finally discharged from the department and I wanted to take the trouble to say how pleased we are with the service we've received. All of our appointments have been on time, all examinations thorough, everything explained, we felt really valued and the Consultant was amazing with my 5 year old. I can't thank them enough for how much my son's eyesight has now improved. I would really recommend this team to anyone looking for this kind of service.
