We diagnose and provide medical and surgical treatment for a wide range of eye conditions in adults, young people and children. These include:
We run outpatient eye clinics at Princess Royal University Hospital and Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup.
This is based at Queen Mary’s Hospital. It sees patients referred by their GP, optometrist, local Emergency Department or other healthcare providers.
If you would like advice and support before, during and after your clinic appointment, talk to our Eye Clinic Liaison Officer (ECLO), Chris Wilsdon. He offers practical advice and emotional support to help you come to terms with your sight loss and maintain your independence.
Things he can help with include applying for benefits and getting practical aids for your home. Meet him at the West Kent Eye Centre at the Princess Royal and the eye department at Queen Mary’s.

You may need to have tests to diagnose and treat your condition. These often involve being given eye drops to enlarge your pupils. We advise you not drive to and from your appointments because the drops blur your vision and make it difficult to see in sunlight.
