Our Story

The creation of The Retina Clinic London is the result of over 30 years of experience in Ophthalmology and listening to patients desires, and with the aim of providing patients with personalised clinical care in a unique and new clinical set-up and environment that allows for the necessary time interact with patients effectively and compassionately. 

Our aim is to provide patients with a diagnosis and treatment plan at their first visit, by carrying out multimodal testing on site. This reduces the burden of repeat visits for testing and discussion of results, as well as patient anxiety. 

Continuity of care is as important to us as it is to our patients. We benefit from a full-time team of experienced reception and administrative staff, nurses, technicians and clinical trial coordinators.  

We aim to offer our patients with a new and completely different experience to what they are used to, form the moment they enter our clinic. A personal touch and confidentially are paramount to us.  

We make sure that we allocate adequate amount of testing and consultation time to each patient. Of course, delays sometimes occur when the complexity of some cases require extra time or emergencies require unplanned care. However, this does not impact on the time dedicated to each of our patients. 

Providing patients with choice and personalised care and treatment are two of our most important aims. Therefore, rather than just following guidelines, we aim to discuss with our patients all available treatment options, their benefits and risks and make the patient part of the decision-making process and the evaluation of response to treatment. 

Patient satisfaction surveys conducted confirm the success of this new holistic approach. 

We do not accept medical insurance cover nor do NHS contracts. 

The only way to achieve our unique and personalised care modality, is to work only on a patient self-funding modality, thus avoiding the need of GP referrals and time-consuming approvals by providers of medical insurance. This working modality benefits patients by reducing the number of visits required to reach a diagnosis, as medical insurance providers usually do not cover for multiple tests to be done in one visit. It is important for patients to know that medical insurance companies set their own fees for tests and treatments and the available fees do not allow the clinic to comply with its foundation aims. 

As a clinic, we are also conscious of the burden of treatment cost. We try to benefit patients by removing the boundary between research and clinical care 

Clinical Trials

We offer all eligible patients with participation in our program of clinical trials.   

Our patient population consists of either self-funding patients that continue to fund themselves their treatment long-term or patient that attend at no cost as part of clinical trials.   

When diagnosis and treatments are delivered at our clinic through clinical trials, patients receive care at no cost with travel and accommodation expenses within the UK covered by the sponsor of the clinical trial and within limits depending on the trial. 

The Retina Clinic London is a self-contained state-of-the-art private institution with on-site operating theatre and the most advanced diagnostic and imaging technology, including amongst others, artificial intelligence, adaptive optics, widefield OCT, ultra-widefield imaging with navigated peripheral OCT and electrophysiology.

There is a successful track record of on-site clinical trials, both investigator-led and industry sponsored including in, amongst others, gene therapy surgery and retinal and vitreous laser. The clinic also has a long-standing and successful track record of collaborating with the R&D teams of various imaging and surgical device manufacturing companies in the development and testing of prototypes and newly approved technologies.

The Retina Clinic London team is routinely invited to present at national and international meetings and publishes in peer-reviewed journals. This ensures that our results available to our colleagues and patients.
