We assess, treat and carry out eye surgery through a consultant-led local eye hospital service at eight locations across Cornwall. We see around 34,000 outpatients each year at our clinics in the Scilly Isles, Penzance, Helston, Falmouth, Truro, Redruth, St. Austell, and Bodmin.
We care for patients with a wide-range of eye conditions such as squints, lazy eye or double vision, help prevent blindness due to diabetes and offer modern treatment for Wet Age-Related Macular degeneration.
These are usually carried out in a day and patients do not stay overnight.
Our surgical results are consistently as good as, or better than, national standards in the UK.
If you would like to refer a patient with suspected Wet Age-Related Macular degeneration, please use the Wet ARMD Rapid Access Form (downloads a Word document).
As you enter the Tower Block, turn left, continue past reception and the friends cafe until the lifts are in front of you. Turn left and the Eye Unit is straight ahead.
If you enter from the main hospital entrance, go past the cafe (on your right) and WH Smiths (on your left). Head to the end of the corridor and go down the stairs or take the lift to the ground floor. Go left and this will bring you to the Lloyds Pharmacy shop (on your left). Continue along this corridor, right to the end and then turn right to enter the Tower Block. The Eye Unit is on your right, just after the toilet and before you reach Tower reception.
