Supporting Sensory Needs

Problems with vision have a huge effect on your daily life. We appreciate the stress they can bring and offer prompt support.

This is often for conditions such as glaucoma, or cataracts, although other issues can occur. The first step is careful diagnosis, through knowledge and advanced equipment.

A personal treatment plan will be formulated by your consultant. Every proven option is available, from medication, to surgery, or injections for conditions such as macular degeneration.

There are cases where a condition is related to other medical problems, perhaps thyroid disease, or trauma. This is naturally factored in and cross department support offered where appropriate.

Our hospital and our ophthalmologists in particular are here to see the most vital of senses restored. So you can set concerns aside and enjoy an important part of life again.

Diagnosis & Treatment

A range of testing can be used to determine the best path for you, such as assessment of ocular muscle, or alignment issues, or ocular tonometry to measure the pressure in your eye. Available treatment includes:

  • Visual field analysis
  • Corneal topography
  • Cataract Surgery
  • Refractive eye surgery
  • Ophthalmic surgery
  • Glaucoma treatment
  • Eylea injections

Waiting for treatment for glaucoma or cataract surgery can be stressful, upsetting and leave you with impaired vision that affects your daily life. At The New Foscote Hospital, we aim to arrange your procedure within a week of consultation, bringing a quick, clear path to treatment.
