Gentleman. Both cataracts treated. Surgery customised for distance with Rayner aspheric monofocal IOLs

‘Cataract surgery was not something I was familiar with and it rather crept up on me, indeed I was horrified to discover that I was only just legal to drive.

The consultations were helpful and reassuring, as were the booklets you gave me.
Like, I think, many other people, I have always had a horror of having my eyes messed about with so quite where I found the resolution to go ahead for the surgery with just a local anaesthetic I have no idea. But it wasn’t anything like as bad as I imagined it would be and the running commentary you gave was both helpful and reassuring. I was also very reassured to have my hand held all through the procedure by one of the nurses. I don’t know whether this is common practice or just something you have developed. Either way I found it very helpful.

The post-operative check ups were also very good and thorough and the additional treatment I required because of the problem surface of my eye was rapidly sorted out and it worked.

The only thing I would add is that it would be great if someone could develop a way of doing away with the 4 weeks of eyedrops, which gets a bit irksome in the end.
Thanks for your good care.’
