As we continue to navigate the scale and impact of COVID-19, the health and wellbeing of our staff and patients is always our greatest priority. We have therefore made the difficult decision to stop seeing both non-urgent new and follow-up consultations and non-urgent surgery after Friday 27th March 2020 until the situation eases.
Ophthalmic Consultants of London are a registered facility with the majority of UK and international private medical insurers including BUPA, AXA PPP, Cigna, Helix, WPA and Allianz for cataract surgery and specialist eye care. Our surgeons are recognised by all of the major insurers and have been voted as some of the best cataract surgeons in the UK by their peers and are considered leaders in their field.

We provide fee assured services at our flagship Central London clinic and surgery facility including cataract surgery, glaucoma treatment, treatment of macular degeneration and most other aspects of ophthalmology.
We are part of the AXA PPP and BUPA cataract networks meaning that if you’re insured with these companies, we will bill your insurer a pre-agreed package price to include your cataract consultation, diagnostic tests, surgery and aftercare.
Our surgeons are also experts in implanting the latest trifocal and enhanced depth of focus lens implants for cataract surgery to reduce your dependence on glasses or eradicating the need for them in most cases. We also offer femtosecond laser cataract surgery, the latest laser technology for the removal of cataracts. It would be unusual for your insurer to cover the cost of these enhanced lenses, or the femtosecond laser, but you can choose to pay the additional fees for this yourself.
You will find our prices for enhanced lenses and femtosecond laser on our prices page.
Each insurer is different, so we advise that you speak with them to understand your cover and ensure you obtain a pre-authorization code prior to proceeding with treatment. Our patient co-ordinators will be happy to help you with any insurance related queries and answer any questions.
If you have a sponsor or embassy that is approved by Ophthalmic Consultants of London, we require a letter of guarantee from them in order to see you and treat you. We will invoice your sponsor or embassy directly to cover your care.
