Ophthalmology treatments

Ophthalmology is the part of healthcare that deals with diagnosing and treating a range of conditions relating to your eyes. We offer a full, private ophthalmic diagnostic service where our highly respected Ophthalmic Consultants – supported by a team of experienced eye healthcare professionals - can quickly assess and diagnose any eye condition you may have.

 

We also offer a range of ophthalmic treatments, in a comfortable and reassuring environment, so that you can experience the benefits of seeing more clearly again, with the minimum of fuss. Our private eye care is performed in first-class facilities at our CQC rated ‘Outstanding’ hospital in the heart of Kent.

We also offer other ophthalmology treatments

Cysts in the eye area

A small, painful lump that can appear in the area around your eye.

Ectropian

This is where your eyelids turn outwards or droop down. If your eyelids don’t meet properly it can affect how tears drain, leaving your eye sore and irritated.

Entropian

This is where your eyelids turn in so that your eyelashes and skin rub against the surface of your eye. This can be painful and cause ulcers or scarring on your cornea.

I have a question about private eye treatment

Why would I have an ophthalmology treatment?

If you've noticed any of the changes listed below, our specialist Consultant Ophthalmologists can help to identify the cause and decide if you need treatment.

  • Seeing dark spots or experiencing double vision
  • Seeing shadows or blurriness in your field of vision
  • Physical changes to the eye
  • Changes in how you see colours
What should I expect at an ophthalmology appointment?

You’ll be treated in our comfortable and modern Eye Unit. Your treatment will be carried out as day surgery, so you’ll be able to go home the same day, although you won’t be able to drive yourself.

How long does it take to recover after my ophthalmology treatment?

Our experienced team will talk you through your recovery following treatment. Depending on your procedure, you may have some mild pain or discomfort which we’ll help you to manage with simple painkillers or eye-drops.

We’ll discuss your aftercare and any follow-up appointments with you before you leave the hospital.
