Day surgery and Out patient clinic
At Day surgery and Out patient clinic in Department of Ophthalmology we offer outpatient clinic services.
Opening hours are 8 am to 16 pm. For treatment at our outpatient clinic you will need a referral.
If you are referred to Department of Ophthalmology, we will send you a letter confirming the date and time for your appointment with us. Please read this letter carefully to make sure you have understood all the details.
Most eye operations can now be performed as day cases, which means you do not need to stay overnight in hospital before or after your procedure. Instead, you are admitted to hospital in the morning, operated on during the day and are then discharged home in the afternoon.
Cancellations by us
We try to keep every appointment we make, but medical emergencies and unforeseen circumstances mean that we sometimes have to cancel appointments. If this happens, we will arrange a new appointment for you as quickly as possible.

Inpatient Eye ward
Patients who need overnight care for clinical reasons will be accommodated in our inpatient eye ward, located at the 3rd floor at the Department of Ophthalmology.
Inpatient stays could be necessary due to either the complexity of an operation or treatment, the anesthetic, or because of other underlying medical conditions.
For admittance to the eye ward you need a referral from a medical doctor, and will receive a letter from the hospital with information about date and time for your appointment.
All meals for inpatients are served in our self-service buffet. Please let us know if you have special dietary needs.
Pediatric patients can be accommodated by one adult during the hospital stay. We have a well-equipped playroom available.
At the ward you will meet experienced nurses and health care assistants, and as we are a teaching hospital there are occasionally also student nurses at the eye ward.
