Mrs Bolter had cataract operations on both eyes at the NE London Treatment Centre, and had distance lenses inserted.
She has nothing but praise for the hospital, and says that the operations has dramatically improved her life, with her ability to see distances vastly improved – she says that when in the car she can read road signs and number plates which before were blurry. And she is also able to watch the television in comfort.
Mrs Bolter had been very short-sighted for much of her life – the cataract operation has therefore transformed her life. The only drawback to her much-improved long-vision is a need for reading glasses, but that is something she is perfectly prepared to live with.
