Admission information

All inpatient admissions are on the Francis Cumberlege Wing, 4th Floor, Moorfields Eye Hospital, City Road, EC1V 2PD.

Patients are admitted approximately 90 minutes prior to surgery. During this time you will have any necessary pre-admission tests and be consented for your proposed surgery.

If you are having a General Anaesthetic you will be asked to have nothing to eat or drink for 6 hours. Clear fluids are allowed up to 4 hours prior to your surgery. For Local Anaesthetic there is no need to fast prior to surgery, but we would advise only a very light lunch.

Patients undergoing retinal surgery will be asked to attend the following day for a post-operative review of their eye pressure.
