New state of the art Optical Express eye clinic in Cardiff

Jo Stevens MP has officially opened the new Optical Express eye clinic in Cardiff which offers life-changing vision correction consultations for patients. The clinic brings the latest eye care technology to Cardiff and will offer patients in Wales improved access to vision correction and cataract treatment.

Optical Express have invested over £3 million in the new facility – bringing the latest generation of advanced eye care technology to the city. As the UK’s leading private provider of laser eye surgery, lens replacement and private cataract treatment, Optical Express’s new clinic will offer high quality eye care for local residents and those in the surrounding area.

The Cardiff clinic will offer complimentary vision correction surgery consultations and in addition to treating private patients, it is anticipated that the new clinic will treat patients on NHS waiting lists as well.

The clinic has the capacity to significantly reduce NHS eye care waiting times in Cardiff, particularly for those in need of cataract surgery. Cataracts worsen over time and can cause blindness without proper care, meaning timely treatment is vital. Untreated cataracts can also increase the likelihood of having a serious trip or fall, in addition to having a detrimental impact on a patient’s mental health. Statistics show that 1 in 3 adults over the age of 65 suffer a fall every year, rising to 1 in 2 over the age of 801.

The new clinic will also create new highly skilled, specialist jobs in the area as the company recruits new members to join its expert clinical team.
