Ophthalmology is the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and diseases of the eye. At Berkshire Independent Hospital we treat patients with a wide range of eye problems from acute, routine eye conditions through to degenerative eye diseases that affect people as they get older and, chronic eye cancers.
Our highly skilled and well regarded consultant ophthalmologists are all members of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and have extensive experience in general ophthalmology. They also specialise and treat complex eye health conditions such as retinal detachment using sutureless small incision vitrectomy techniques for retinal detachment repair. Our ophthalmologists can prescribe and fit eyeglasses and contact lenses or perform laser eye surgery to correct vision problems.
Common eye complaints we see include: cataracts, age related macular degeneration (AMD is a condition that affects your ability to see things that are directly in front of you due to a gradual loss of central vision) and glaucoma (a group of eye conditions caused by a build-up in pressure in the eye that can affect sight in one or both eyes). We have specialist clinics for cataracts, age related macular degeneration and glaucoma.
We offer a comprehensive ophthalmology service that aims to provide the highest level of eye care using the latest surgical techniques available. We provide convenient appointments for all our patients and first-rate diagnostic techniques to evaluate eye conditions.
