Eyes right

Daily Mail - - News -

NEWS of the Queen un­der­go­ing a cataract op­er­a­tion made me think: ‘How long would she have waited on the NHS?’

Last year, I had the same pro­ce­dure car­ried out on both eyes on the health ser­vice. I saw the GP for the first time in Jan­uary — and by June, I was able to see my usual op­ti­cian for a pre­scrip­tion for read­ing glasses.

I know I was lucky, and I am grate­ful to all in­volved in my treat­ment. Mr D. SMITH, Skelmers­dale, Lancs.
