A branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye.

About United Kingdom

United Kingdom is a constitutional monarchy comprising much of the British Isles. This Union is more than 300 years old and comprises four constituent countries: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. It occupies all of the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern portion of the island of Ireland and most of the remaining British Isles. The UK is an island nation, but shares a open land border with Ireland. The UK has a population of 65 million people, capital and largest city is London.

United Kingdom welcomes an ever-increasing number of medical tourists each year, many of which travel for Ophthalmology procedures. The government provides all British citizens free or low cost care under the NHS, also known as the National Health System, leaving a small private sector for routine operations, which caters to people that do not want to wait in line for elective procedures, or are not citizens or residents of the Islands. Being a developed nation, the UK’s quality and accreditation
towards its healthcare centers is something to be expected by the patients, for both the public and the private sectors.
