Cataract frequently asked questions

Where can I find out more about specific conditions?

Information about several of the more common eye conditions is available on our website. Simply click on the drop down menu on the homepage and click on the condition you’re interested in. For some conditions, you’ll also be able to download patient information leaflets about specific conditions. We’ll be adding information about further eye conditions in future.

Please call the communications team on 020 7566 2628 if you would like any of our patient information literature in an alternative format such as a plain word document, large print or Braille, and we will arrange this for you.
