At Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood, Essex, our consultant ophthalmologists provide corrective surgery for vision impairment as well as diagnosis and treatment for a range of eye problems in adults and children. We have ophthalmology clinics from Monday right through to Saturday so patients can usually be seen within a few days.
