Ophthalmology is a specialist area of medicine that is dedicated to the study of the eyes and vision. With state-of-the-art hospital facilities in Bath, Reading and Nottingham, the eye units at Circle hospitals are specialist ophthalmology centres, dedicated to the diagnosis and management of all eye conditions.
Our ophthalmology consultant teams, backed up by specialist nurses and optometrists, manage the entire range of eye diseases, including the very latest treatments for cataract and retinal disorders such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
All eye consultants at Circle Health units are leading eye surgeons in their subspecialty of ophthalmology. These subspecialty areas include eye conditions affecting the retina, cornea, eyelids, squints, cosmetic appearance and glaucoma, to name a few.
Early diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases can be essential when it comes to preserving and protecting your vision. Therefore, regular routine eye tests at each stage of your life is important.
Our general ophthalmology services will thoroughly assess your current vision, and also screen for signs of ocular or systemic disease that may lead to vision loss. These examinations include screening for common eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and hypertensive retinopathy.
All eye examinations at Circle Health are carried out using the latest state of the art equipment, procedures and techniques.
If a problem is noted with your vision or eyes, your Circle Health ophthalmologist will usually discuss the possible diagnosis and treatment options with you during the appointment. Sometimes further testing is required to determine the specific diagnosis and the best treatment options. At Circle Health, we can offer these advanced evaluation services.
If you need specialist care you will be referred to a leading ophthalmology specialist at Circle Health for advanced care recommendations and treatments. Depending on your eye condition, these treatment options may include medications, laser treatment, artificial lenses or surgical procedures.
