Area 6A Outpatients, Level 7:

From the main entrance come in to the concourse. Take the second right past the NHS Information shop and walk along to the end of the corridor. 6A reception will be on your left, please let the clerk know that you have arrived for your appointment.

Your Visit

After checking in with reception you will be directed to the eye clinic waiting area and your notes will be passed onto the nursing staff. A nurse will then take your medical history and check your vision, then put drops in your eyes to dilate your pupils. These drops usually take 10 – 15 minutes to work and will blur your vision. NB It is advised that you do not drive. You will be called into the imaging room to have photographs or scans of your eye taken.

These images will be sent through to the clinician to analyse. Once these and your other details have been assessed, you will be called in for a consultation.
