As one of the UK’s leading provider of NHS cataract surgery, YAG Capsulotomy and AMD treatments, we are focused on delivering the best care in first-class facilities and supporting you through each stage of your patient journey with us.
A big thank you to all our NHS cataract patients who shared their patient experiences with us on video – this is the best way to find out about SpaMedica and hear first-hand what our patients said about us, our staff and their patient journey, including surgery.
We know it’s important for you to know the quality of care and outcomes of SpaMedica eye hospitals. This gives you the reassurance you are placing your trust in expert professionals, who are dedicated to supporting you to help improve your vision.
Find out about our team and how each one of us plays a part in delivering the best patient care we can. You’ll find lots of smiling faces that are here to help and support you – right from diagnosis through to treatment and your post-op care.
As an NHS patient you can decide on which provider you would like to go to for your eye surgery or treatment. Most of our SpaMedica patients choose us because of our short waiting times, first appointment time is about two weeks and surgery/treatment within four weeks.
We know how important your eyes are and that good vision helps with the quality of life and allows us to do the everyday things we want to do. If you’re having problems with vision you’ll need to visit your local optician, who’ll test your vision and provide a thorough ‘health check’ on your eyes.
SpaMedica always listens to our patients and we value your feedback, both good and bad. Please let us know what we do well and what we can do better.
Find out all you need to know about cataracts, the symptoms and details of cataract surgery. We’ve also provided a detailed guide on the full NHS patient journey with SpaMedica, right from diagnosis through to post-op care and everything in between.
YAG Capsulotomy is the recommended treatment for PCO (Posterior capsule opacification) – which is a common complication following cataract surgery and is available for NHS patients. This is a needle free, painless procedure that uses laser technology to improve your vision.
We provide treatment, care and support for our AMD patients. There are two types of AMD – wet AMD and dry AMD and wet AMD can be treated if caught early. We have a team of experts who are here to help and support you throughout your treatment course.
Vitrectomy surgery is available at SpaMedica for our existing NHS patients. You’ll be advised by one of our team that vitrectomy surgery would be beneficial to treat a condition, such as retinal detachment. The surgery can improve or restore vision for many patients and our SpaMedica team are here to support you every step of the way.
