"Whether I had a cataract"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

I had an eye test at Spec Savers, who advised me that I had a cataract and they would refer me to the Hospital. I duly received an appointment and attended last week. My appointment was for 9am and I was seen before this time when an extremely pleasant nurse put eye drops into my eyes and checked the pressure. I then had to wait 15-20 minutes before I saw Mr Kahn. He checked my eyes and was very charming. He asked me if I wanted the operation because there could be complications. We discussed the options and he asked if I could see, to which I replied I could, then he advised to leave well alone, I would know when I needed an operation. He was so honest and I was impressed.

Dear Ann,

I am delighted to hear your feedback regarding your recent appointment with Mr Khan in Clinic 8. I have shared your feedback with him directly and with the whole Clinic 8 team.

When you feel the time for surgery is right, please don’t hesitate to ask your GP or Optician to refer you to be seen again.

Daniel Overton.
