Cataract sufferers in Harrogate can now be assessed by an experienced ophthalmology professional closer to home before they have surgery, thanks to a new service offered by the eye health specialists at Newmedica Leeds.
Patients will now be able to access a local pre-operative assessment before making the journey to Leeds to have their surgery, saving them time and effort.
The service will be based at Specsavers Harrogate in 18 Beulah Street, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 1QH, and local opticians and primary care professionals can refer their patients to the service.
Aldrin Khan, consultant ophthalmologist and clinical director at Newmedica Leeds, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to offer our patients in Harrogate and the surrounding area the added convenience of being able to be seen for their pre-operative assessment closer to home.
