The members of Community Eye Alliance provide consultant-grade staff and services. We use our extensive experience and clinical expertise to adapt services and pathways to local needs. Most of our team have been practising this for over 10 years.

Improving Eye Health

Community ophthalmology is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of eye diseases and conditions within a community setting.

It aims to provide accessible, high-quality eye care services to local populations.

Community ophthalmologists work closely with other healthcare professionals, including optometrists, nurses, and primary care doctors, to deliver comprehensive eye care services to patients. Our work includes screenings, vision tests, treatment of eye diseases and injuries. Also, referrals for more specialised care when required.

Overall, our goal is to improve eye health and prevent blindness in the populations we serve.

Our Aims

Our aims align with those of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and the College of Optometrists. Specifically,

‘To improve patient flow across an eye health system, to remove unwarranted variation in clinical decision-making, develop efficiencies across pathways, and devolve some of the low-risk activity to free up capacity within hospital eye services.’                Source


We believe that Community Ophthalmology is the future of NHS eye care.
