What we do
St Paul’s Eye Unit, at The Royal Liverpool University Hospital, provides a world renowned ophthalmic service not only to the community of Liverpool but also to regional, national and global referrals. Its team of highly trained and dedicated specialist ophthalmologists has expertise in a wide variety of eye conditions.
The ophthalmologists are backed up by a highly trained and qualified team of nurses, technicians and administrators, who continually strive to improve the standard and quality and care delivered for patients. To this end, the directorate actively undertakes public and service user involvement, and staff are involved in meeting community and service user groups outside the hospital environment.
St Paul's Eye Unit is strongly linked with the research activity of the Department of Eye and Vision Science, Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, University of Liverpool. We have a long tradition of research-based care of the highest quality, which is why St Paul’s continues to be the centre of excellence for both care and education.
