diagnostic services
Be assured of a comprehensive and efficient outpatient and surgical service. A team of consultants (opticians, orthoptists etc.) and a specialist group of ophthalmic trained nursing staff all make every effort to ensure you receive first class care. We offer various services ranging from general eye examinations and special tests, to assessment and treatment of glaucoma, oculoplastic, medical retina with diabetes, lachrymal, paediatric and squint.
