Patient story: Chris Briggs

Motorcycle enthusiast Chris Briggs can now get on his bike following two cataract operations at The McIndoe Centre.

“Mr Lake was very clear in his explanation of what the operation would entail and we discussed the various options of different lenses so that I could choose what was best for me. I was a day patient both times and the care was really excellent from start to finish."
