Royal Eye Unit – Outpatients

If you have an outpatient appointment booked in the next 3 months we will be contacting you to let you know if you should come to the hospital, if your appointment will be over the phone with an eye specialist or if you appointment is being deferred. 

We will only ask you to come to the hospital if we need to provide treatment that is essential for you to maintain your current level of vision.  

Please call the REU admin team on 0208 934 6404 if you have a query about your appointment time or date. 

Changes to Kingston Hospital’s Royal Eye Unit Eye Casualty walk-in service

To facilitate social distancing in waiting areas and to limit traffic through the Royal Eye Unit, the walk-in eye casualty service was replaced with a booked appointment system, back in March. Feedback from patients has been positive and as a result, we are intending to maintain this service change for the time being.

We have set up a dedicated phone line to make it as easy as possible for appointments to be booked, so that urgent cases can continue to be seen promptly - tel: 020 8934 6799.
