London has historically been one of the world’s leading medical capitals. A huge amount of medical history has taken place in the city, from the world’s first test tube baby to pioneering heart and organ transplants.
The city is home to some of the world’s leading medical institutions too. Great Ormond Street hospital does incredible work with paediatric care, and the Royal Free’s oncology department is one of the best in the world. Meanwhile, superb hospitals including St Guy’s, St Thomas’ and the Royal Marsden are all leading the way with new treatments.
If there is one street in the UK, or even the world, which is known for its connection to medicine, it's Harley Street. With a history of medicine dating back hundreds of years, this one road is home to some of the best surgeons on the planet.
As well as this, London is a centre of technological excellence. New developments are happening all the time, with pioneering treatments and equipment being trialled here.
Laser eye surgery in London's Harley Street district
When it comes to laser eye surgery
, it's no surprise that the nation’s capital is again leading the way. And where else would Optegra choose to have their flagship £13 million hospital but in the Harley Street area?
Behind the stunning Edwardian and Victorian facades just off Harley Street, our eye hospital offers a full spectrum of eye treatments. We’re at the forefront of laser eye surgery in the capital, using innovative methods and the latest technology to achieve spectacular results. Alongside treatments such as LASIK and LASEK, our central London hospital also offers ReLEx SMILE
, a pioneering new treatment which represents the next generation of laser eye surgery.
Everything we do here is top class, from the superb facilities and comfortable recovery areas, to our excellent customer service which makes the whole process that little bit less stressful. All our ophthalmic surgeons
are NHS trained and Fellows of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists or equivalent organisations. We only work with the best, and offer a very personal approach. You’ll see the same surgeon from your initial consultation and treatment right through to your aftercare, so you can rest assured that you're being treated by someone who really understands your needs.
And, of course, our central London eye hospital
is regulated by the Care Quality Commission, as are all our clinics and hospitals around the country.
Laser eye surgery in North London
It’s not just in the centre of the city that we offer world-class laser eye surgery. We’ve also got another hospital in the north of the city. Less than five minutes’ walk from Colindale Tube Station is our state-of-the-art North London eye hospital
This hospital offers the same outstanding level of care as our Central London hospital, but is conveniently located for patients living in the north of London. Again, all our surgeons are world class, NHS trained and Fellows of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists or equivalent bodies.
As with all of our Optegra hospitals, your treatment doesn’t end with your surgery. Our comfortable recovery suites give you the time and space to relax after your treatment. Plus, should you have any queries after your treatment, there’s a dedicated out of hours contact number.
