Our department offers general ophthalmic services treating all common conditions and also runs a number specialist services. These include:

  • Cataract
  • Glaucoma
  • Age-related macular degeneration
  • Diabetic eye disease
  • Lid, oculoplastic and ophthalmic reconstructive surgery
  • Paediatric ophthalmology
  • Neuro-ophthalmology
  • Vitreo-retinal surgery
  • Corneal service
  • Low vision service
  • Full complement of Optometry and Orthoptic services to complement

Patients attending for an outpatient appointment can undergo a number of diagnostic tests within one visit. This may result in a delay during their visit to the eye clinic.
