"satisfactory, cold. I am not sure if one..."

About: St Mary's Hospital (Newport)

What I liked

cheerfulness of staff

What could be improved

It was cold everywhere.

Anything else?

1.I was in hospital for cateract operations. Instructions for cleaning and washing the eye, I missed, or they were not issued. One is reluctant to touch eyes which have been operated on and I feel that Blepharitis may have occured due to this caution.

2. I am a Glaucoma suspect. This may be made worse by drugs that I tke for one of my plethora of illnesses. High levels of sodium are in Osteoporosis drugs (illness from coeliac) and in painkillers for fractures. Could these not increase pressure within eyes along with blood pressure?
