Post-Operative Cataract Scheme

Following routine cataract surgery the vast majority of patients can now attend an accredited Optometrist for their four week post surgery check-up

Pre-Operative Cataract Referral Pathway

Our optometrists are trained to assess cataracts and discuss the option of a referral where appropriate. A direct referral can then take place from optometrist to a surgical provider.

Paediatric Shared Care (PSC) Scheme

Two of our optometrists are accredited to provide appointments on the PSC scheme. These appointments often follow a school screening appointment or follow an examination by an Orthoptist in a community clinic or hospital setting.
