About Moorfields Private, City Road

Moorfields Private Admission & Refractive Suite

The Moorfields Private Admission & Refractive Suite is on the fourth floor of the main hospital on City Road. This floor is located via the main entrance to Moorfields Eye Hospital, next to the A&E entrance.

Please do not attend Moorfields Private Outpatient Centre, Bath Street, which may have been where you attended for your initial appointment.

All our laser eye surgery equipment, including the excimer laser and femtosecond laser, is upgraded every three years. This ensures we offer our patients the most advanced and precise technology.

These state-of-the-art machines reduce the operation time, provide greater accuracy and achieve better results.

Private inpatient ward for overnight stays

Our dedicated private ward includes both bedrooms for overnight stays and cabins for day patients. All include ensuite facilities and the rooms are furnished to the highest standards, ensuring 5 star comfort.
