Excellence in cataract, lens & laser eye surgery in Hereford

The Herefordshire Eye Clinic of Nuffield Health Hereford is staffed by a group of four independent experienced consultant eye specialists: Mr Simon Madge, Mr Stephen ScotcherMr George Morphis and Mr Ben While. We serve the patients of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Powys, south Shropshire and surrounding counties, providing a first class, comprehensive ophthalmology service.


We are based at Nuffield Health Hereford, where we have access to state-of-the-art surgical equipment and facilities, but we may also see private patients closer to their homes in Brecon and Ludlow.


In addition to the consultants' complementary subspeciality interests in eyelid and retinal surgery, glaucoma, macular degeneration and children's ophthalmology, we pride ourselves on excellence in cataract and lens replacement surgery. We provide a complete, bespoke approach carrying out small- and micro-incision phacoemulsification cataract / lens surgery with a multifocal, toric (astigmatic correction) or standard intraocular lens, depending on your individual requirements.


Lens replacement surgery to reduce your dependence on spectacles - even without a cataract - has a long track record of excellent results in Herefordshire.


All consultants are also experienced, practising National Health Service consultants with years of experience in both ophthalmology and medicine in general. Although we are all independently practising consultants, we pride ourselves on our good working relationship, which translates into excellence in patient care and a progressive, innovative approach to eye surgery in Herefordshire.


Our services

All five specialist consultants perform high quality, small incision cataract surgery (phacoemulsification), with the guarantee that your surgery will be carried out by an appropriately qualified, experienced consultant at a time convenient to you.


In addition to cataract surgery, the surgeons also perform laser refractive and lens replacement surgery, rejuvenating eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), as well as caring for patients with glaucoma, squints, eyelid tumours and malpositions, troublesome watery eyes, as well as sight-threatening retinal problems such as macular degeneration and diabetes.

Private treatment means personal treatment: no waiting lists, no trainee surgeons, no compromise.
