About Us

Originally the “Excimer Laser Unit”, established 1993, at Sunderland Eye Infirmary, site for eyes is a private and fully dedicated refractive surgery facility, situated within the Infirmary. We provide sophisticated, state of the art facilities for patients seeking the most efficient and best service. Our unit benefits from an extensive ophthalmic research programme and has an established reputation as a high quality provider of comprehensive refractive surgery.

We offer advanced technology for small incision, no suture cataract surgery, corneal transplantation and refractive surgery.

Our unit has pioneered refractive surgery in the North East, and was the first centre to perform LASIK in the region. Similarly, site for eyes has introduced other technological innovations into the region. Amongst these, accommodating, toric and multi-focal implants for use with refractive lens exchange have helped to improve visual outcomes and near vision function, without glasses.

site for eyes was one of the first units nationally to introduce corneal Collagen Cross Linking for treatment of keratoconus and corneal ectasia; helping to pioneer its acceptance as a mainstream treatment for these conditions.


State of the Art Technology

We have continued to remain at the cutting edge of excimer laser technology and were the first centre in the region to introduce wavefront customised treatment, enabling laser treatment to be specifically customised for your refractive errors. This included the use of tissue saving and aspheric treatment profiles.

We offer both laser and surgical procedures. This allows us to treat a wide range of short sight, long sight and astigmatism.
