Outpatient clinics are held on the Ground Floor of the Eye Hospital.

Treatments we offer

  • Medical treatment (eg antibiotics, antivirals, antifungal drugs, steroids)
  • Laser treatment (excimer)
  • Surgery including corneal grafting

Patients need to be referred by their GP or by the eye department of another hospital.
