Eye Care Providers - Ophthalmologists

Ophthalmologists are medical specialists trained in eye examination, and the medical and surgical treatment of eye disease. Local Ophthalmologists and their primary specialisations are shown below

Matheson Optometrists in the Hampshire towns of Alresford, Grayshott, Four Marks and Portchester work closely with ophthalmologists. Because we are Independant Prescribing Therapeutic Optometrists we are able to start treatment for many conditions as soon as diagnosis has been made. It is natural that there is this overlap between these two eyecare professions.

We co-manage glaucoma patients for local NHS hospitals and private clinics, reducing the strain on one of the busiest hospital departments so that highly skilled ophthalmology colleagues can devote their time and skills to those more complicated cases often requiring surgical intervention.

We also take referrals from local GPs and pharmacists for Red Eye, flashes and floaters, foreign body removal, high pressures etc as part of the PEARS, PEARS plus, ACES and MECS hospital based schemes. Thoughout the COVID pandemic we have continued to provide emergency care for patients in our area. Because we are Independant Prescribing Therapeutic Optometrists we are able to start treatment for many conditions as soon as diagnosis has been made.

We have no financial ties with any surgeons or clinics. This means we provide unbiased advice as to the most appropiate procedure, weighing up the relative risks and benefits to each patient case.
