The best in modern clinical care

Our main focus is the treatment and care of NHS patients with a wide range of eye problems, from common complaints to rare conditions that require treatment not available elsewhere in the UK.  The volume and variety of conditions treated by our clinicians means that they have a unique range of skills and knowledge.

Care closer to home

We treat people in 21 locations in and around London.  This means that we can provide more first-class care and treatment in the community, closer to where people live and work.
