First anniversary for our central London eye hospital

After helping hundreds of people to enjoy improved vision, our flagship eye hospital in London recently marked the first anniversary since opening its doors.

The hospital, which is located in London’s famous Harley Street district, first opened in January 2016 after undergoing a £13 million development. Our aim was to create a state-of-the-art dedicated eye hospital to deliver the very best treatments for our patients, and this has certainly been achieved. The hospital boasts world-class facilities including a full laser suite, two integrated digital theatres and the very latest diagnostic equipment.

Ultimately, the aim of the hospital is to deliver the best possible experience for patients. Commenting on the first anniversary, Jonny Husband, Hospital Director for Optegra Central London Hospital, said, “It is fantastic to be celebrating our first anniversary, and to see the hospital become an integral part of the Harley Street district is incredibly rewarding. Our hospital has been designed to be at the forefront of the eye healthcare market, pioneering new procedures and the latest in Ophthalmic medical equipment. We strive to partner with world class surgeons who share our common objective – to provide outstanding care for our patients.”

As well as offering the very best facilities, our central London eye hospital has also brought the latest laser eye surgery technique to Optegra: the innovative ReLEx SMILE treatment. With this minimally invasive, bladeless form of laser eye surgery, no flap is created, so there’s no risk of flap complications and patients are less likely to experience discomfort after treatment. SMILE eye surgery makes an excellent alternative for patients who are unable to have treatments such as LASIK and LASEK. By being one of the few places in the UK to offer this innovative treatment, our central London hospital has truly put Optegra on the map.

The innovative treatments and facilities available at our central London hospital haven’t just impressed patients – they’ve also helped to attract some of the best ophthalmic surgeons around. Manzar Saeed, who was the first consultant to carry out a procedure at the new hospital, said, “What drew me to Optegra Eye Hospital Central London was its promise of cutting-edge equipment and procedure rooms, complemented with an extraordinary patient-focused service that would offer the best treatment options and environment for my patients, and it has certainly delivered.”

Here at Optegra, we’re delighted with the success the new hospital has had so far, and we look forward to everything the future has to bring.
