Paediatric ophthalmology

What we do

The Paediatric Eye Service manages all eye conditions in a young person up to the age of 18 years. We also provide paediatric ophthalmology A&E and separate specialist paediatric clinics for uveitis, neuro-ophthalmology, genetics, complex strabismus and paediatric cataracts as well as screening and treatment for retinopathy of prematurity.

Outpatient clinics are held in the paediatric unit on the first floor at Bristol Eye Hospital and also at Weston General Hospital. Telephone and video consultations are also available.

Conditions we treat

We manage all eye conditions from the front to the back of the eye in a person from 0-18 years. We work closely with Orthoptists and Optometrists.

How to be referred

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