Expert treatment for eye and vision concerns
Whether you are interested in reducing your dependency on glasses or have recently noticed changes in your vision that are causing you concern, our Consultants would be delighted to meet with you and help you access the most appropriate support for your needs.
In a healthy eye, light is able to easily pass through the clear lens at the front of the eye. This lens precisely focuses the light onto a specific part of the back of the eyeball known as the retina. The retina transforms the light energy into electrical impulses, which are sent to the brain along the optic nerve. The brain processes these electrical impulses in order to give us our sight.
With such complexity involved, it is easy to see that a problem in any part of these parts of processes has the potential to affect vision. When you have any concerns about your vision or the health of your eye, it is important to get expert assessment as earlier treatment may help to avoid further damage to the eye or additional loss of vision.
Many factors can affect vision and eye health, including disease, injury, ageing and illnesses such as diabetes.
The people who visit BMI The Hampshire Clinic for help with an eye-related problem will often complain about one of the following symptoms:
If you have any of these symptoms, a private Ophthalmology appointment can help to determine the cause and the most appropriate treatment for you.
Once they have carried out a comprehensive assessment, your Consultant will talk you through suitable treatment options so that you can make an informed choice about your treatment.
Treatment will always be tailored to your specific requirements and will be led and directed by your Consultant at all times, providing you with excellent continuity of care.
* Please note that at BMI The Hampshire Clinic we do not provide laser refractive surgery or vitreoretinal surgery. Our Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeons will be happy to see you for assessment and will then refer you to the most appropriate specialist outside the hospital if required.
They may carry out a visual field test to measure your peripheral vision (your ability to see to the sides). If cataract surgery or lens replacement surgery is required, they will take special measurements of your eyes.
Scans such as ultrasound, CT or MRI may be required for some symptoms and conditions, and these will be arranged for you at the hospital at the earliest opportunity.
Once any results are back, your Consultant will discuss them with you and talk through treatment options. If you have any questions or concerns, they will be very happy to talk about these with you.
Many people are referred to us by their optician, GP or private medical insurance provider. Others are recommended to us by a friend or family member. We treat people with private medical insurance as well as self-pay patients.
A medical referral can be helpful, but you can self-refer.
