The department provides an extensive range of eye services for both adults and children.

We provide a range of services for all local residents and people from further a field who choose to be treated by our department.
All our consultants are experts in their fields of ophthalmology and undertake all types of eye surgery.

They are all assisted by a team of doctors and nurses who all pride themselves on the delivery of the very best quality patient care.

Our main focus is the treatment and care of NHS patients with a wide range of eye problems, from common eye complaints to more specialized eye complaints which need expert care.
