The Ophthalmology Department is based in Outpatients Area 1 at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB). It provides ophthalmology outpatient facilities and day case surgery.

As well as 14 consultant ophthalmologists, the eye service is supported by an Orthoptic Department, Optometrist and Low Vision Refraction Service, and a Low Vision Nurse Service. Many sub-speciality clinics have been developed, and there is close communication with consultants in other specialities.

In addition, ophthalmologists in training rotate to the eye department as part of the West Midlands regional training rotation, and the department also undertakes an active role in the teaching of medical students.
