"Eye Clinic"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

My partner had received a letter from is optician to go as an Emergency to the Eye Clinic as there was a likely hood of a detached retina. He waited four hours to be seen by a doctor.After examining his eye the doctor said come back if it get worse. He did see a tear in the back of the eye.

My partner aged 62 was very worried and understandable concerned when he was turned away.

We sought a second opinion as a private patience at Holly House. The doctor said it was an emergency and laser the eye.

I am very angry that we were turn away at Whipps cross.

He could have been half blinded as a result of this doctors clinically judgement.
