Royal Eye Hospital

A new eye hospital opened on 8th August 2009!

Manchester Royal Eye Hospital is one of the largest eye teaching hospitals in Europe. Globally acknowledged as a centre of excellence, the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital is renowned for its pioneering work in all aspects of ophthalmology, including out-patient care, surgery and education.

It provides secondary and tertiary care to residents of Greater Manchester and beyond and provides an extensive range of services and facilities for both adults and children.

Some of these services include: The Emergency Eye Centre, Acute Referral Centre, Ophthalmic Imaging, Ultrasound Unit, Electrodiagnosis, Laser Unit, Optometry, Orthoptics, the state-of-the-art Manchester Eye Bank and Ocular Prosthetics.

The new Eye Hospital is a vast improvement on the old facilities. On the ground floor of the new two-storey hospital the main reception area incorporates everything needed for out-patient visits including 24 examination rooms, five laser treatment rooms and two ultrasound rooms.

On the first floor, the ophthalmic ward is made up of nine single rooms, an isolation room and a four-bedded area together with consulting and treatment rooms. The day case unit includes six examination rooms, three interview rooms and a number of specialist treatment rooms.

It provides a new model of care by replacing fragmented facilities across three buildings and producing a better patient experience by separating planned and emergency treatment. There is an easily identifiable entrance to ensure that people with impaired vision are clearly and safely directed.
