Ophthalmology Services

Ophthalmology deals with the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eye. It involves the diagnosis, treatment, and management of various eye disorders, including glaucoma, ocular hypertension, conjunctivitis, and other related conditions. Ophthalmologists are specialist doctors who carry out the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and conditions. They can perform various tests, examinations, and procedures to diagnose and manage eye conditions, including prescribing corrective lenses, medications, and surgery.


We offer ophthalmology services to patients in the local community that focus on providing eye care services to communities in a decentralised manner rather than being confined to traditional medical settings like hospitals. The purpose of our community-based ophthalmology services is to make eye care accessible to individuals who may not have easy access to traditional healthcare settings, such as those in rural or remote areas, or those with limited mobility or financial resources. We do this by bringing eye care services to the community where individuals can receive the care they need in a comfortable and familiar environment, which can improve patient outcomes and overall quality of life.


Our clinics are led by highly skilled optometrists and based in optometry practices. We offer a 6-week referral to treatment timeframe, giving patients better access to treatments and reducing wait times. Our service is patient-focused, and we offer a choice of appointment locations and times to suit everyone’s needs.


To access our services, patients must be referred to us via their GP. Once referred, patients are seen in a local setting within 4-5 weeks. All consultations and treatments are led by our specialist medical expert in ophthalmology, Professor Stephen Vernon.
