Where we do it

 

We provide Optometry services at:

  • The main eye clinic at St. James's University Hospital (Ground Floor, Chancellor Wing)
  • St. James's Laser Vision based at St. James's University Hospital (Ground Floor, Chancellor Wing)
  • Orthoptic and Children's eye clinic at St. James's University Hospital (Multi Speciality Outpatients)
  • W Ward eye clinic at Seacroft Hospital
  • Wharfedale General Hospital.

 

Until October 2006 we also provided Optometry services at Leeds General Infirmary.

Following the merger of the two Ophthalmology units, including the Optometry service, we now provide these services at St. James's University Hospital and since 2011 from Seacroft Hospital. Our Optometry services at Wharfedale remain unaffected by this change.
