No matter what stage you are at with your eye health, our consultants would welcome the opportunity to provide you with up to date information, advice and treatment options.
We have a dedicated and highly trained administrative team working behind the scenes who form a friendly, convenient and single point of contact for all our patients and who can provide detailed information about all elements of our practice.
When making an enquiry or arranging an appointment, our experienced administration team will listen carefully to your requirements and, depending on your eye condition and/or symptoms, will advise you on and place you with the most appropriate consultant who will be responsible for managing your care and any on-going treatment
How to become a patient
We have an outstanding reputation in the local and wider community for patient care, surgical excellence and consistent, exceptional patient outcomes with extremely low complication rates.
We are well known to local optometrists and general practitioners who are in a position to refer patients to us, and who do so on a repeated basis.
We are proud that our previous and existing patients would consistently recommend us to their family members, work colleagues and friends. We are therefore pleased to be able arrange an appointment for any patient making a direct patient enquiry, so no referral is required.
