Our Passion, Your Care
Optometry Department

The Optometry Department provides a specialist range of optometric services for patients attending Ipswich Hospital.

These include adult and paediatric refractions (for spectacle prescriptions), specialist medical contact lenses for children and adults and low vision rehabilitation, with a comprehensive range of low visual aids (magnifiers) available. Our Eye Clinic liaison officer (ECLO) complements the low vision service by providing support and information to visually impaired patients. The optometrists also undertake a wide range of other outpatient clinics. These include OCT, visual field, cataract pre-assessment and glaucoma clinics. The Optometry Department is also involved in training medical students, pre-registration optometrists and other health care professionals.
