Inferior Oblique Surgery

Cameron Airth’s Story:

Mr Reddy performed an operation on my eye in July 2015, to correct my squint. I was getting double vision and my head tilted to compensate for the squint which was uncomfortable. I was really nervous of having the operation as it was on my eye and I didn’t want to go blind! But it all went totally fine. The op was fine and the hospital was really comfortable.

I came in the morning and my mum was allowed to come down to the theater with me while I had the anesthetic. Afterwards it didn’t hurt as much as I thought and I went home that afternoon with an eye patch , some pain killers and some drops to use for a few weeks afterwards . I took the patch off the next day and there was a bit of blood but we could see that the squint was much better straight away. It is now even better and I don’t get double vision and no tilt.

I am so glad I had the operation – I didn’t need to be nervous and I would say to anyone to have it.

Thank you very much Mr Reddy,
