    Explanation (5/5)
    Excellent experience from start to finish. Cataract removal was quick and painless. Ms Richardson explained what was happening at each stage. This ensured I felt confident and relaxed throughout. The outcome was nothing short of miraculous and my eye is functioning perfectly less than 24 hours after the operation.
