Expert treatment for eye and vision concerns.
When a change in your vision starts to affect daily life, we don’t believe you should just have to accept it. Ophthalmology involves the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of problems in and around the eye. A doctor who specialises in this area is known as a Consultant Ophthalmologist.
The Consultant Ophthalmologists at Bishops Wood Hospital help people with a wide range of conditions and symptoms.
Whether you are interested in reducing your dependency on glasses or would like to get advice about treatment options for a degenerative eye condition, they will give you helpful advice about what would be best for you. If treatment is needed, they will arrange that for you as soon as possible.

When the results of any investigations are back, your consultant meet with you again to talk through them with you and to explore treatment options for your specific vision requirements.
Many people are referred by their optician, GP or private medical insurance provider. Others come to us following word-of-mouth recommendation from a friend or family member. We treat private medical insurance and self-pay patients, and you can self-refer to avoid delay.
