Eye surgery: poetry in motion

Eye surgery is precise, clean and elegant - as much art as it is science.
Nonetheless, people are understandably anxious about having anything done to their eyes.
But rest assured, most patients find the experience to be much better than they were expecting. One of Mr Turnbull's patients described her experience of cataract surgery, through the medium of haiku poetry: 

A visual delight

Cataract extraction

Enjoyed the show


Colours abounding

Pink, red, yellow, blue, green

Dancing as light rays


The surgeon’s presence

Dexterity in action

Miracle of sight


Loved every minute

With such caring smiling staff

And free refreshments!

Thank you so much for my two brilliant cataract operations. My life has been transformed: I can read, watch sport, see everything so clearly now. I was treated very kindly and efficiently by everyone. I can’t thank you enough

Mrs FM

Mr Turnbull and his great supporting team were totally committed, polite and calming, and at pains throughout to explain as they proceeded what exactly they were undertaking.

Mr Turnbull was in fact exceptional in every conceivable aspect of the whole visit. My complete thanks to him and team for unsurpassed care

Thank you for being so kind, caring and attending to me, I really appreciate what you have done, I am so grateful. You were very gentle and made a wonderful job on me and I still have my sight. Thank you once again.”
