As one of Northern Devon Healthcare Acute NHS Trust’s largest departments, we deal with around 15000-20000 patient episodes per year through our emergency, out-patient, surgery and in-patient services.

The eye department has around 70 highly-skilled staff who are experts in their field. It comprises ophthalmologists, optometrists, orthoptists, nurse specialists, and imagers supported by a dedicated clerical team.

They provide a comprehensive service for adults and children ranging from routine appointments to emergencies, and facilitated by state-of-the-art diagnostic, laser and surgical equipment.

We are proud of our high reputation amongst local GPs and community opticians, are a post-graduate teaching centre and are committed to delivering a high-quality service to patients in the North Devon area.
