"Eye surgery"

About: Southend Hospital

I would like to thank my consultant and all the team for the operation on my right eye which was drooping and had caused discomfort for a very long time. The remedial surgery has stopped the need for regular drops of eye gel and a Vaseline type application morning and night. Above all it has given me confidence and my friends no longer suggest that my wife has been bashing me about! I feel that the ward nurse should get a special mention, they could not have been kinder. Thank you again Daniel Blunden
