Treating and diagnosing eye conditions

Quick, painless ophthalmology treatments for adults and children using the latest technology and best diagnostic equipment and techniques

Overview

Our ophthalmology consultants are all experts at diagnosing and treating eye conditions. We take a holistic approach to eye care, offering you a greater understanding of the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. Our consultants treat a wide range of ophthalmic problems - from common eye conditions such as cataracts, squints and occluded ducts through to major vitreo-retinal surgery. We also offer lens implants for 'dry' age-related macular degeneration (AMD). At The Lister Hospital, we offer corneal and retinal surgery, oculoplastic surgery, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the structure around the eyes. And we use the very latest 3D optical coherence tomography scanning and phacoemulsification surgery. Most of the treatments we offer are day-case procedures, which means you can go home straight after. And in many cases, we can offer daily and short notice appointments.
