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

I presented to the Sydney Eye Hospital with a referral from my doctor and I was a little overwhelmed by all the procedures and tests and things that I had to undergo.

Every single person I spoke to and interacted with was lovely though. Georgia in the emergency room was an outstanding nurse! Nicola, Paris and Louisa in the east ward were all so lovely and helpful too. 

Despite the stressful and confusing situation, I felt well cared about and looked after. 

Thank you to everyone who helped me, it really made all the difference!
