It’s very distressing for these patients. Many patients are the sole driver in the household. They need to drive to take a partner or parent or spouse to hospital appointments. For some, it’s just simply maintaining their independence. We’re in South Wales, so some people live in the countryside and need to get in and out to get daily provisions.
It’s a very common reason patients come for refractive cataract surgery.
It’s one of the biggest joys for patients after the surgery has been completed that they’re back to driving and they’re back to being independent. They feel like they have their life back again.
I invite you to book a consultation to determine your suitability for refractive cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange. It’s the only way to determine your suitability for these procedures and to have an in-depth discussion regarding the risks and benefits of each of them. I look forward to seeing you there and taking you through the journey to achieving your desired postoperative outcome.
