Ophthalmology (eye care)

Our ophthalmology service at the major teaching centre of the Western Eye Hospital offers a comprehensive service for all the sophisticated investigations that are now available in eye care.

Our team of leading specialists can support you in everything from common eye problems such as cataracts or glaucoma, through to complex ophthalmic issues.

Services include weekly clinics with specialists who have expertise in dealing with conditions such as macular degeneration or diabetes. We offer a unique service where we can provide the additional support of an ophthalmic technician during your treatment. This can provide peace of mind that you will be seen promptly and will have access to guidance on how to manage your condition once diagnosed.

Our state-of-the-art equipment means that you will have the very best diagnostic options, including access to the latest optical coherence scanner which provides high-quality images of the retina.
