Location: Sussex Eye Hospital Laser capsulotomy.

Excellent:
Due to my being an in-patient in the Martlets hospice, I was unable to keep an appointment for my laser treatment.
Mr Purbrick fitted me in and carried out the procedure, restoring the pleasure I take in reading while confined to my home. I was most grateful.

Excellent:
Calm, measured advice that allowed me to make an informed choice about the surgery.

Location: Sussex Eye Hospital Cataract surgery

Excellent:
Friendly kind staff who listened and explained what would happen and who patiently answered questions, they must surely be tired of hearing from naturally anxious patients. The same efficient kindness the next morning when I received a follow up phone call.

Could be improved:
The waiting area is too small to efficiently accommodate patients and their 'minders' and this made it unnecessarily difficult for staff to have access to monitor blood pressure, etc.

  • Question about Retinal vein occlusion

    What does retinal vein obstruction mean?

    A vein draining blood from the eye becomes obstructed, which can result in reduced vision due to fluid accumulating at the centre of the retina (macular oedema) or as a result of a lack of oxygen supply to the retinal cells (ischaemia). Retinal vein occlusions are most commonly associated with high blood pressure.

    Robert Purbrick

  • Is it normal to keep seeing flashing light spots and floating black threads 3 days after a photocoagulation treatment due to retinal tear?

    The laser treatment is performed to reduce the risk of the tear progressing to a retinal detachment. The symptoms can be explained as follows:

    1. Flashing lights (photopsia): this is due to traction on the retina from the vitreous gel that is separating from the retina (posterior vitreous detachment) and I would normally expect this to stop within a week.

    2. The floaters are solid parts of the vitreous gel, or sometimes a small amount of blood, floating around in the liquid vitreous. These can take longer to settle down - weeks or months - but these are rarely bothersome in the long term.

    If your symptoms have been stable since the time of the laser treatment then there is probably not much to worry about and presumably you have a follow-up appointment arranged. If you experience a sudden increase in floaters, a significant reduction in vision, or a solid curtain progressively spreading across your vision, you should seek urgent attention from an ophthalmologist.
