Seriously fed up today. Went away to the seaside for a couple of days and ended up first of all at the opticians then the eye hospital with suspected tear in my retina. Fortunately I didn't but am trying to get used to a huge floater in my eye and the kind of mist that keeps me reaching for the specs cleaner. I could really, really do without this, especially as it mucks up my reading.
Thumbs down to the well known branch of opticians who said no-one could see me till Monday and a definite thumbs up to another one with brilliant staff who referred me onto the eye hospital. And the service there was NHS at their best.
