Our A&E is for urgent, sight-threatening problems and eye treatment

A&E department
What this service does
accident and emergency (A&E) service can be found at I VISION Eye Hospital. Our A&E team offers emergency treatment for urgent, sight-threatening problems.
On arrival you will be assessed by a nurse practitioner who will determine how serious your condition is and prioritise you for treatment accordingly. Sometimes we’ll treat your condition straight away, but sometimes we might decide to refer you to one of our more specialist services for further tests and treatment.
I VISION A & E department is open.
Services offered by I VISION A&E
We are a specialist accident and emergency (A&E) department and we aim to provide a first class service to people who have eye emergencies such as pain or vision loss.
When you visit us at you will be assessed by an experienced ophthalmic nurse practitioner and if you have an emergency eye problem that means you need to be seen today, you will be booked into A&E.
Our A&E department at ALMARGHANY is not a "walk-in" clinic. If your eye problem is not an emergency you should see our specialist clinics if necessary.
A&E is not for second opinions, repeat prescriptions or non-urgent problems such as dry eyes, itchy eyes, hay fever and cataracts.

Cataract
This is a common eye condition, in which the lens becomes progressively opaque, resulting in blurred vision.

Cataract service
What this service does
The team in this service treats cataract, a common eye condition, in which the lens becomes progressively opaque, resulting in blurred vision.
Cataract surgery is generally recommended when your cataract has progressed to the point that it is interfering with your daily activities and lifestyle. It is usually safe to delay surgery if you do not feel you have a problem with your vision, or don’t want to have an operation.
Modern cataract surgery is usually quick and can be performed using a local anaesthetic only. Most people are able to return to work the day after their operation. During surgery, your lens is usually replaced with a clear plastic lens, called an intraocular lens (IOL). For most patients, the new lens is chosen to aim for focused distant vision after the operation. Many people still require glasses for fine focusing in the distance and it is usual for you to need reading glasses after your operation.

In general, staff in our contact lens service treat patients whose vision cannot be improved with spectacles, but can be improved with contact lenses.
We can prescribe and fit contact lenses for a range of medical eye conditions, such as keratoconnus, corneal distortion, or scarred or white corneas.
We also treat patients with very high prescriptions ( e.g. over +/-15D), or to relieve pain or aid cosmesis if your eye has become unsightly following damage from, for example, infection or trauma.
We cannot fit lenses if normal vision can be obtained with spectacles.
How do I make an appointment with this service?
To be seen in the clinic you must be referred by your ophthalmologist at IVISION or another hospital.
Your referral is then reviewed by the principal optometrist of the contact lens clinic to ensure there is a medical need for contact lenses, following which an appointment is sent to you.
Clinics
A general contact lens clinic runs every weekday, and specialist clinics for scleral lenses and children's contact lenses run on different days of the week.
You will be assessed in the clinic to ensure you are suitable for lenses. A lens type will be selected depending on your medical need. As the lenses are often complex designs, and are therefore usually specially made, your contact lenses will be issued at your second appointment. You will also receive instruction on handling and caring for your lenses at this appointment.
