Appointment Day

On arrival at Moorfields, all our patients are personally guided through their visit, from reception to the examination room and the waiting area. Before an eye examination is undertaken, our specialist will explain the procedure to you very clearly, so that you know exactly what to expect. These tests and examinations can be lengthy, and you may expect to spend up to two hours at the hospital. We will strive to keep this length at the minimum duration for your visit.


All of our patients are day cases, which means that patients are discharged from the hospital on the same day as treatment. Moorfields provides a comfortable and private recovery area where you can relax close to your family until you are ready to leave. In addition, the hospital provides a comprehensive follow-up programme for patients, where necessary, after surgery. We also have an emergency contact number that will be provided post surgery if required for use for out of office hours.

International Patients

If you are visiting us from around the world or planning to visit the UAE for medical treatment purposes our dedicated international patients’ team will help you find the right doctor and suitable timing for your visit.

We know that looking for the best medical services away from home can be difficult for patients and their families; our team can coordinate and guide you through every step of your patient journey when seeking treatment within our group.
