"Visit to Emergency Dept of Sussex Eye Hospital"

About: Sussex Eye Hospital

I was sent by my GP to the emergency department of the Eye Hospital this morning as I have been experiencing blurred vision and pain to my left eye.

I was seen very quickly in the first instance by nursing sister who immediately put me at ease and conducted preliminary tests.

After that I had a scan done on my eyes, further examination by a doctor and after a blood test consultation with the specialist on duty.

Everyone was extremely kind and professional.

The whole process lasted about two and a half hours after being prescribed suitable medication.

I really cannot not fault the treatment I received at this department today.
