I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Optegra Eye Hospital Manchester, Spire Liverpool Hospital .
This package includes your appointments before and after surgery, as well as your surgery and mono-focal lenses. It means you won’t use up your out-patient benefit or receive any additional bills from your surgeon (or anaesthetist, if you need one) for eligible treatment.
Please call the Bupa Eye Care team to find out more about and to pre-authorise your treatment on 0345 600 7267.
I am a consultant ophthalmologist who trained in the UK in Southampton, Guildford, Manchester and Liverpool, and abroad in Perth, Australia.
In my spare time I like to run, including marathons, to cycle and to do triathlon, though none of these very well!
