The service has now grown to provide treatment for patients across several NHS Trusts in the North West of England.

Age Related Macular Degeneration Treatment

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a painless eye condition that causes you to lose central vision. AMD is the leading cause of vision loss among people age 50 and older in the UK. Vision loss can be rapid and irreversible.

More information

Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes, caused by high blood sugar levels damaging the back of the eye (retina). It can cause blindness if left undiagnosed and untreated. However, it usually takes several years for diabetic retinopathy to reach a stage where it could threaten your sight.

More information

Vein Occlusion Treatment

Occlusion (blockage) of a retinal vein is a common cause of sudden painless reduction in vision in older people. A blockage forms in the vein, usually due to a blood clot, and obstructs the blood flow. It is essential to identify and treat any risk factors to minimise the risk to the other eye and prevent a further vein occlusion in the affected eye.
