Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology is the specialty dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions including emergency eye problems.

About our Service
Our comprehensive Ophthalmology service provides dedicated one-stop cataract clinics, along with sub-specialist clinics in glaucoma, corneal/external eye disease, macular degeneration, oculoplastics and paediatric ophthalmology. An emergency ophthalmic service is provided throughout the week, as well as dedicated anterior and posterior segment laser treatment sessions and a cyst / minor ops clinic. Our surgical services encompass small-incision cataract surgery, squint surgery, glaucoma, corneal and conjunctival surgery, lacrimal, eyelid and orbital surgery and intra-vitreal injections for macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, corneal collagen cross linking and NHS laser eye surgery for specific corneal disease indications.

We are a Tertiary Centre of Excellence for corneal transplant surgery, keratoconus, iris reconstruction, intraocular lens reconstruction and advanced cataract surgery.
