Newcastle Eye Centre at the Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI) is one of the largest in the UK, treating and caring for well over 100,000 patients each year. We are a regional centre of excellence treating all types of common eye conditions in adults and children, both elective and emergency, as well as providing a range of highly specialized and cutting-edge services.
Through our work with Newcastle University, we are often among the first to adopt innovative services. This helps us to bring our patients the most up-to-date treatments available, such as corneal transplants and treating macular degeneration (damage to the retina) with ‘photo dynamic therapy’.
Our purpose-built modern unit in the Claremont Wing at the RVI has state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment facilities for medical and surgical conditions affecting the eye. These include:
• Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD)
• Orbit (including eye socket)
• Corneal disorders
• Uveitis (inflammation of part of the uveal tract of the eye)
• Squints (for adults and children)
• Lacrimal (conditions affecting the tear duct)
• Neuro-ophthalmology (conditions affecting nervous system in the eye)
• Vitreoretinal (condition affecting the retina)
