Working for Optegra

Optegra Eye Health Care is a chain of specialist eye hospitals, offering the full spectrum of A-Z of eye health care, both in the UK and across 5 countries worldwide.

Our history

Our journey began when Ned Johnson III, the then Chairman and CEO of Fidelity, underwent eye surgery which changed his life for the better. He wanted to be able to share his experience with others and have eye surgery more widely available to the masses at a price that was affordable but did not deflect away from a quality 5 star service.

Under his watchful eyes, the Fidelity teams began the process of turning Ned Johnsons’ vision into reality. “Project Blink” as it was known became a passion of his and in 2007, Optegra was born. The first hospital started operating in Guilford a year later.

Optegra now operates 23 private eye hospitals and clinics, bringing together leading edge research, medical expertise and state-of-the-art surgical equipment. We work with over 150 top ophthalmic surgeons, all who are members of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, and are renowned for their areas of expertise.

Committed to the future

We are committed to the development of eye sciences and have championed a number of the latest innovations in vision correction by partnering with leading UK universities in the research and development of the next generation of ophthalmic services and technologies. Our ultra-modern hospitals combine the most advanced treatments and technology available with 5-star facilities. They have been designed with every detail in mind to make our patient's experience as relaxing and pleasant as possible.

Our vision

To be the world's most trusted eye healthcare provider.
