There are many hospitals. I'd suggest u Chaoyang Hospital is good too. I did get an Op there and I was satisfied with the quality of the service. And some doctors can speak foreigh languages well.
Agree with Uncle X. China-Japan Friendship hospital is a good choice
@ Derrick I think you need to see a specialist as soon as you can. If you came to the UK you could be on the waiting for up to six months for an appointment with the NHS. If you opted for private care, (you say you need an operation) you know it is going to cost you big money, you are not going to see much change from £5000 unless you have BUPA or Private Health Care.
I have a friend who is legally blind! He was driving home one night finding it hard to drive with the night lights and soon after this he began to see floaters. (Droplets of blood going across his eyes) He ignored it and a few weeks later he went for a hospital appointment and was declared legally blind; his car license withdraw immediately. The hospital wanted to admit him in a home for the blind that day, he refused to go as he preferred to stay at home. (The reason is people who lose their sight are a high risk for suicide) This year he had an operation to seal the blood vessels and restore some of his sight. In May he fainted and ended up in hospital with a broken vertebra. and lost most of his sight. My friend has reflected and always asked if he had been treated earlier if he could have saved his sight. There must be eye specialist in China or in Hong Kong who are just as qualified as surgeons in the UK.
I found some web sites but I don't know anything about these hospitals, hope it helps.
Call International SOS. I don't have their number, but uh...I dunno, look it up. Pricey, but they will put you in touch with a Western doctor who will set you straight.
I am really angry about is I have wasted three weeks seeing Dr's who spent so little time on me and to be honest I have very little faith in
I know how you feel ... my in-laws have lived in China all their lives, but even they questioned the conducts of, as well as diagnostic and treatment given by, local doctors ... one of them actually has cardiac problem, and when I went home last month (Sydney), they wrote me an email asking me to consult my uncle's friend who happens to be a cardiac surgeon ...
I found this website by accident, and there is a program to help people with sight problems.
