Can you help ?

I am very sorry to hear, unfortunately you will not find a private option as private is for elective care, not emergency care.

Operating at night is rare and a delay to the morning is often safest.

I would assume she is planned to have this repaired in the morning?

The oncall doctor won’t operate until Sunday

Within a few days is quite normal

She has lost sight in her right eye. Thank you for helping

It also depends on which part has detached. But a few days is not uncommon to wait but I appreciate it is not pleasant to have to
