What our patients say

Donald, Edinburgh, 2012 with Consultant Ophthalmologist Mr Mark Wright:
"I wish to thank you for the bi--lateral ptosis procedure you carried out on me in October last year. I am pleased to say that since then I no longer experience the degradation of my sight during the day when using my reading glasses which has made a huge difference in my everyday life. My thanks also to the staff at the Murrayfield Hospital for the friendly and helpful treatment I received during my short stay."
