Mr Christopher Williams

At Spire Cardiff Hospital I provide general ophthalmology consultations, specialising in cataract surgery and retinal diseases and their treatment.
I am also a Consultant Ophthalmic and Vitreoretinal Surgeon at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff and Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend.
I originally worked as an optometrist before qualifying with honours from University of Wales College of Medicine. I undertook general medicine training in South Wales, obtaining Membership of the Royal College of Physicians. I trained in general ophthalmology in Southampton and the Wessex rotation. This was followed by Fellowships in vitreoretinal surgery in Southampton and Melbourne, Australia.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Christopher Williams at Spire include:
• Retinal laser treatment
• Vitreoretinal surgery (retinal detachment, macula hole, epiretinal membrane, diabetic retinopathy)
Spire Cardiff Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
