About Us

Anchor 4

At Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, we are passionate about providing world class eye care to all our patients; from cataract surgery to the treatment of very complex conditions. We are proud to offer a comprehensive range of services that meets your every ophthalmic need. We’ll guide you through your treatment right the way from diagnosis, intervention and review.


Since our inception 200 years ago and to date we strive to enhance and improve traditional eye care to provide a service that is as individual and unique as you, our patient.


What makes Manchester Royal Eye Hospital different?

Each of our 30 consultants is highly experienced in ophthalmology and has their own special interests in a sub-set of conditions. This means your diagnosis and treatment will be conducted by the ultimate clinical opinion, chosen by you.


Only consultants employed by Manchester Royal Eye Hospital will see you in the unit, so your care is assured through robust national and international standards monitored through the NHS, Royal College of Ophthalmologists and Care Quality Commission.


Unlike other providers, every nursing staff member is fully trained in ophthalmic nursing care and works every day in the specialty of ophthalmology. This includes our ward and theatre nurses.


We have in-house optometry and orthoptic departments to provide you with a complete ophthalmic opinion, as well as access to broader NHS services for diagnostics as necessary.
