Consultants & Optometrists

Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeons
All of the doctors who work for Midlands Eye Care are NHS consultant eye surgeons. They all treat the common eye conditions including cataracts, but have specialist expertise in the management and treatment of glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other retinal conditions.

Optometrists are trained to measure the optical power of the eye (refraction) and prescribe glasses and contact lenses to correct any errors of refraction such as long-sightedness, short-sightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. They are skilled in the detection and diagnosis of eye diseases and with additional training and qualifications can manage and treat a range of eye diseases and conditions.
