Ophthalmology Services BMI The Lincoln Hospital

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine that diagnoses, treats and prevents diseases of the eye.

Your eyesight is very important and anything that causes you pain or affects your vision should be looked at by an ophthalmologist that can recommend a suitable treatment for you.

At The Lincoln Hospital we can offer the following treatments:

Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clouding of the lens, a small transparent disc, in your eye. Cataracts often develop over time, and can cause loss of vision if not diagnosed and treated early.

An ophthalmologist may recommend cataract surgery, as it can improve the natural lens, in your eye, or replace it with an artificial one.

Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma is a common eye condition where the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain, becomes damaged or weak. This can lead to sight loss, if it is not diagnosed and treated early.

Symptoms of glaucoma include: blurry vision, nausea and pain in the eye.

Your treatment will depend on the severity of your glaucoma may be recommended medicated eye drops, tablets or in some cases surgery.

If you are concerned about the symptoms of glaucoma our experienced ophthalmologists, at BMI The Lincoln Hospital, can provide you with a diagnosis and advice on a suitable treatment.

Retinal Diseases

Retinal disorders can affect your eyesight. At The Lincoln Hospital our experienced ophthalmologist will be able to diagnose and recommend a suitable treatment plan. In some cases, the ophthalmologist may suggest Retinal Laser Treatment. This corrects your vision and reattaches the retina.

Retinal diseases may include: diabetic eye disease, retinal detachment, Retinoblastoma (cancer) or floaters.
