Eye Care (Ophthalmology)
We care for patients with eye conditions.
We assess and treat patients at 5 hospitals across Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire (including Hemel Hempstead Hospital). Our team of specialists treat eye conditions including:
- squint and lazy eye
- diabetic eye problems
- retinal detachment and other diseases of the retina
- eyelid and tear-duct problems
- cornea diseases
- optical problems (such as complex contact lens fitting and low vision assessment)
- macular degeneration (including photodynamic therapy and lucentis).
We have state-of-the-art imaging facilities to support our cataract, glaucoma, diabetic and macular degeneration services. We also have a visual electrodiagnostic service – a facility rarely available outside large teaching hospitals.
How to access our eye care services
You’ll need a referral from your GP.
How we treat your eye condition
We run outpatient clinics for assessments and minor procedures if you don’t need to stay in hospital overnight. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may need an operation and stay with us as an inpatient.
In some cases, you may need to have your operation at a specialist eye unit in Oxford or London.
