City’s eye care suffers

A more suspicious person than myself might conclude that Kamloopsians are victims of an insidious government collusion, the aim of which is to deny them the same health benefits enjoyed by other jurisdiction of B.C.

To wit: in Kamloops, your eye specialist is obliged to offer you an appointment date
11 months in the future for a cataract operation while the waiting time in Kelowna is three weeks, and considerably less in Penticton.

This is my experience. Three years ago, I was in Penticton in June and asked an eye surgeon if he could improve on my nine-month Kamloops wait time.

He said, “I’ll have your records faxed down today and operate on Wednesday.”

The doctors’ hands are tied. The problem is with Christy Clark and her minions.
