"Eye problem"

About: Sussex Eye Hospital

We visited the eye hospital as my husband had a swollen eyelid and painful bloodshot eye, and as he has had a detached retina in the past we were rather concerned. He received excellent care ( and on a Sunday too) and we cannot praise the staff highly enough, especially the nurse who checked him in, who was lovely! We only had to wait an hour to be seen and were able to have a cup of coffee while we waited. Yes, we did make a donation but we were amazed at the amount of people who didn't!! Luckily it was just an infection and we went on our way with some eye drops. Thank you Brighton Eye Hospital - you are fantastic!

Response from Sussex Eye Hospital

Dear Mrs Babb

Thank you very much for your kind comments expressing your gratitude.

I have passed on your message to the Ophthalmology Department, it really is encouraging for our staff when they receive thanks from patients and relatives for the care they have provided, and it is always very much appreciated.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact us and I hope your husband is recovering well.

Best wishes

Hannah Pacifico
