As post operative and critically ill patient, I developed a problem with one of my eyes. I was taken to see the consultant who acknowledged how ill I was and sent me back to the ward and came to see me there.
I was fortunate it was my consultant as after some tests he diagnosed Candida Chorioretinitis this can be fatal in critically ill people, they prescribed anti-fungal drugs to save life and then a series of injections to save my eyesight.
Over a two year period an excellent result has been achieved.
I am lucky to have been in the Royal Bolton Hospital as this enabled me to use the Eye Unit. A huge thank you to all the fantastic staff there
