"Cataract Surgery"

About: Sydney / Sydney Eye Hospital / 1 East (Ophthalmology)

(as a relative),

My mum had to have cataract surgery at Sydney Eye Hospital. The staff were really lovely and caring. My mum is in her 80's but very fit and with it, the staff were great fun and very helpful. We would like to give a special Thank You to Natasha, she was wonderful and explained everything carefully and thoroughly. Natasha also put mum and I at ease by taking the time to chat with us and to treat us both with kindness. Great job Sydney Eye Hospital!

Dear capellajm75

It is lovely to hear the staff ensured your mum’s cataract surgery experience was a positive one. Humour, a smile and kindness go a long way to easing the anxiety of surgery. Thank you for sharing your experience with us and I will certainly make sure Natasha and the staff in the Day Procedure Unit receive your post.

I hope your mum is recovery well.

Kind regards
