We have close links with specialist consultant ophthalmologists locally and further afield, and can arrange a referral to see them privately on request. The type of conditions commonly referred into private clinics include:
- Conditions that are classed as "routine" in NHS clinics, meaning they are often lower priorty such as cataracts, posterior capsular opacification (secondary cataract), epiretinal membrane and corneal dystrophies
- Cosmetic eyelid issues including lumps, bumps and eyelid drooping
- More specialist services not usually provided by NHS clinics such as cataract surgery with multifocal (varifocal) lens implants, corneal collagen cross-linking for keratoconus and refractive surgery
- Patients that would like a second opinion
For more information, please contact us and one of our optometrists will be happy to discuss this with you.
Please note, private referrals are usually subject to an administration fee, but is included in Eyeplan membership.
