What to expect at your appointment

When you come to a consultation you will typically see the orthoptist first, and if it is the patient's first visit their pupils will be dilated with drops to allow detailed examination of the eyes.

These drops usually take about 20-30 minutes to fully work and then you will see the consultant. You should allow just over one hour for your consultation, but it may be longer if necessary.

Please bring with you any medical reports, your referral letter, a note of any medication being taken and allergies, and the current spectacles if relevant.


Please call 020 7387 4072 for our current fees. These will be confirmed in writing prior to any appointment.

For all outpatient consultations (where there is no valid insurance) payment is required on the day. A receipted invoice will be supplied so that you can claim from your insurance company later if applicable. However, if you are insured, please bring all the details with you including a pre-authorisation number if required (most of the time) to cover that days consultation. Please bring to the consultation any insurance company forms that require completion by the consultant.

For operations, we will bill the insurance company direct. Where there is no insurance cover in place, payment is required on admission.

Payment may be made by cash, debit card or most credit cards.

For patients sponsored by an embassy, payment is required as above unless there is a letter of guarantee in place.

If you require further information regarding our payments policy please telephone and we will be happy to advise further.
