Surgery to help slow the loss of your sight due to age.Find out more
The ageing process, eye disease and long term conditions such as diabetes can all affect our eyesight. Our expert eye doctors can treat some of the most common of these conditions – including surgery to fix cataracts.
We also offer laser treatment for some eye conditions and injections for wet age-related macular degeneration.
At Spire Cardiff Hospital we understand that problems with your eyes and vision can impede your enjoyment of everyday life. Our eye clinic provides quick access to specialist ophthalmologists who diagnose and treat a full range of common eye conditions and diseases.
All our consultants are fully UK accredited and have extensive experience in general ophthalmology with individual areas of specialist interest. This enables you to be paired with a local specialist that is right for you. Specialist interest areas include paediatrics, medical retina, cornea, glaucoma, ocular motility and vitreoretinal. For more information, view our list of ophthalmic consultants.
At Spire Cardiff Hospital our outpatient service and day case surgery unit provides expertise and high quality care for all patients. Appointments are readily available and you will be treated as an individual with your own needs. At your initial consultation you will have time to fully discuss and understand your condition and treatment options. We want to ensure you have all the information required to make an informed decision before proceeding. Patients find it comforting to know that your consultant will manage your case from start to finish, allowing you to build a trusting relationship and continuity whilst managing your treatment. We also understand that with something as important as your eyes, patients can feel nervous. We have experience in managing anxious patients by addressing your individual concerns in a calm and welcoming environment.
Treatments vary depending on the condition but commonly involve prescribed medication or performing surgical procedures. If lens surgery is required, we offer a range of lenses and the benefits of each will be discussed with you to decide which is best to match your lifestyle. We also offer an affordable fixed price package for cataract surgery. Rest assured that treatment is usually quick and simple, allowing many patients to return home on the same day.
An optician can refer you to Spire Cardiff Hospital directly if you are a self-pay patient, so you do not have to be insured to book an appointment. However, if you are insured you will need a referral from your local GP. To book an appointment, contact our outpatient appointment team on 029 2073 6011. For more information on our eye clinic call customer service on 029 2054 2509.
