"Cataract operation gave me a better life."

About: Townsville Hospital and Health Service

(as the patient),

I was almost blind for a couple of years, a few years ago now.  Could not get over the feeling of a better life after the cataract operations.  Vision pretty good now.  


Response from Julie Shepherd, Nurse Manager Patient Experience, Patient Services; Clinical Governance Directorate, Townsvillle Hospital and Health Services

Dear Betterlife,

Thank you for taking the time to share your uplifting story on how your life has improved since your cataract surgery; it is wonderful to read about such a positive experience.

We see many patients each day in our health service and it is important for us to remember that each person’s story is unique and significant to them. Thank you Betterlife for telling us of your life after surgery and reminding us just how important each patients’ journey is.

I wish you all the best for the future.

With warm regards,

Julie Shepherd
