Eye conditions

If you are experiencing any problems with your vision please contact your GP or Optician as a matter of urgency.

They will make a referral to a hospital eye clinic if this is necessary.

Our research team are looking into developing treatments for various common and rare blinding eye diseases. Studies include:

Age-related Macular degeneration 

Retinitis Pigmentosa and Stargardt disease

Developing a diagnostic tool for corneal infections

Children's eye conditions


It is important to look after your eyes and have regular check ups at the opticians to catch the early signs of sight threatening  eye conditions. Any changes in your vision should not be ignored as early intervention usually leads to a better result.
