"I just had to send you such a big thank you for the cataract surgery you performed for me last Monday at the Woodthorpe Hospital, Nottingham. I was the one who was going to walk home, if you remember.


I am so pleased with the result, you have really given me a new lease of life. I just could not believe how the world looked when I took off the eye shield on Tuesday morning, I could see the buds on the trees and all the wonderful colours. I can read even very small print without any specs, how wonderful is that. I keep going round the house looking for anything with small print on to see if I can read it.


Do you know I am the Bionic Woman now I can see so much, the only down side is I can see how old I look and that was a shock I can tell you, still it's what is on the inside that matters.

Thank you seems so little to say, I will always be grateful for what you have done.

God Bless"


"Just a brief message to thank Mr Alwitry and his team for their patience and understanding on Tuesday. I was extremely anxious throughout the day and I appreciate the extra effort he took to reassure me. The vision in my right eye is so much better than before; I am typing this without any spectacles and as far as I am aware it makes sense!"


"Please pass my thank to Mr Alwitry and his team. I awoke this morning and removed eye protection following my eye surgery yesterday and my treated eye is already better/clearer/improved colour without spectacles than my untreated one with specs. Really impressed with the difference. I look forward to having my other eye treated in a couple of weeks."
