What will happen at your first appointment
What happens on arrival?

The ocular oncology clinic is based in the main Eye Clinic on
A floor of the Outpatient building directly opposite the multi-story car park. Please report to the reception desk on arrival. The receptionist will check your details and you will be asked to take a seat in the waiting area. A nurse will then check your vision so please bring your distance glasses if worn.

Dilating drops are often required and as these may blur your vision for several hours it is advisable that someone accompany you if possible. You will be seen by one of the doctors in the team who will examine both eyes and decide what tests you require to establish the diagnosis.
