3. Customer opinion
Mr Le Thanh Long (70 years old – retired officer): I have registered for Phaco surgery at the hospital. Because my house is quite far from the hospital (in Bac Giang province), I was admitted to the hospital 1 day before the surgery and stayed in hospital for 1 day. From examination to the hospital admission procedure, I was guided dedicatedly and made me no longer feel confused or worried. Now that my eyes have recovered, it has been a long time since I have seen the faces of my children and grandchildren as well as everything around me so clearly.
Ms. Le Quyen (30 years old – designer): There are many quite good reviews of Thu Cuc TCI’s service from my friends. I myself feel very reassured when I experience the annual eye examination here. Thanks to the doctor’s thoughtful, thorough and meticulous advice, even with the intense exposure to the computer, my eyes do not increase myopia.
