Ophthalmology Services

Spire Leicester Hospital offer comprehensive diagnostic, laser, medical and surgical treatments for a wide range of eye conditions.

Recognised experts in their chosen specialised field, our consultants regularly perform complex eye procedures

All our consultants are registered specialists with the General Medical Council, and have met stringent appointment and accreditation criteria. They are recognised experts in their chosen specialised field, regularly performing complex eye procedures both in the NHS and the private sector.

Modern ophthalmology requires access to an extensive range of equipment and dedicated facilities to support this technology. Equipped with modern equipment such as Argon, Nd-Yag Lasers and Phacoemulsification, our ophthalmic consultants can provide you with the very latest and highest quality care.

We recognise the importance of continuity of care, which is why the consultant ophthalmologist you choose will be with you from your very first appointment, right through until your care is complete. All members of our team supporting the consultants are trained to the very highest standards.

You can be referred to our eye specialists by your GP or by your optometrist. With ten consultant ophthalmologists offering weekly private clinics at Spire Leicester Hospital it’s easy to book an appointment - and we will make any treatment process in our clean, caring and comfortable hospital environment as easy as possible.
