"Professional care at The Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital"

About: The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital

(as the patient),

I attended the The Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital today to have a cataract removed and replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). The experience was highly professional and caring from beginning to end. All staff members involved in my care, whether on the nursing or surgical team, were impressive. Each took the time to build a relationship and to keep me informed about all aspects of the process. Their work was not rushed, yet I moved smoothly through the preparation, surgery and recovery stages more quickly than I had expected.
