What we do
Our team of specialists diagnose and treat a wide range of eye conditions in adults, young people and children supported by ophthalmic nurses and technicians, orthoptists and photographers.
- diabetic retinopathy
- age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
- detached retinas
- corneal infections
- eye injuries.
We provide mainly outpatient care and day surgery, which we carry out in our Day Surgery Centre. We also have clinics at Lewisham Hospital and run children’s clinics in the community.
Preparing for your appointment
You may need to have several investigations when we are diagnosing and treating your condition and these often involve having your eyes dilated with drops. We advise you not to drive to and from your appointments because dilation blurs your vision and makes it difficult to see in sunlight.
