Moorfields Eye Hospital London
Moorfields is one of the world’s leading eye hospitals, providing expertise in clinical care, research and teaching and education.
Our main focus is the treatment and care of NHS patients with a wide range of eye problems, from common complaints to rare conditions, which require treatments not available anywhere else in the UK. We have over 30 locations in and around London, which enables us to provide expert treatment closer to patients’ homes.
We are also a postgraduate teaching centre and a national centre for ophthalmic research involving, with the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, the largest ophthalmic research programme in the world.
In addition, we manage three commercial divisions: Moorfields Private, Moorfields Pharmaceuticals and Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai.
With our partners at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, we are members of Vision 2020, an organisation committed to raising public awareness of blindness and vision impairment as major public health issues.
