What we do
We help provide a high quality eye service in a community setting at Warmdene Surgery. Amongst other treatments, the service offers YAG laser capsulotomy to people experiencing cloudy vision after cataract surgery.
Why we do it
So that people can be seen by an experienced, specialist clinician and have access to longer appointments without having to wait a long time for a referral. Formerly requiring a secondary care referral, the availability of YAG treatment in the community now means more appointment flexibility and no need for people to attend hospital.
Who we do it for
The service is available for people in Brighton and Hove aged 16 years or older, with blepharitis, conjunctivitis, dry eyes, epiphora, age-related entropion and lesions.
What do I do now the service is closing?
