Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) we have modified our service as described below.
Please be reassured that if your routine clinic appointment has been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we will be sending you a further appointment in due course. The eye doctors are reviewing all patients clinical records to make sure appropriate decisions are made.
If you have an appointment at the eye clinics, please come in via the South Wing entrance accessible from Lambeth Palace Road (opposite Evelina Children’s Hospital). This gives direct access to the eye clinics, avoiding unnecessary contact with others.
Please apply hand gel before entering the clinic area.
The eye emergency remains open for people with acute eye problems.
Please call 020 7188 4336 before attending, to take advice from one of the staff to ensure that a visit is necessary.
Eye injection service
We continue to run the eye injection service for patients with retina conditions. Patients are given appointments at 30 minute intervals and seating is arranged to respect the correct social distancing. We will do our best to see and treat all patients within the 30 minutes to minimise time in the department.
For GPs and optometrists
If you need advice please ring 020 7188 4299, or ask to speak to the on call ophthalmologist out of hours.
