How do I make an appointment at Moorfields?

You should see your GP or optician in the first instance.  If he or she decides that your eye condition needs to be investigated by more specialist staff, they will arrange for you to have an outpatient appointment with Moorfields or another eye-care provider.  If you choose to be treated at Moorfields, we will send you a letter confirming the date, time and location of your appointment with us.  For treatment for urgent, sight-threatening problems and for issues that cannot wait for a routine appointment with your GP, you can come directly to our specialist A&E department which is based in Moorfields Eye Hospital in London’s City Road. A&E is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Treatment

Glaucoma is treated by lowering the pressure in your eyes.  This can be done in several different ways, including eye drops, laser therapy and surgery.  Your clinician will discuss with you the best treatment for your form of glaucoma.
