Welcome

You are most welcome to our hospital. Usually a pre-booking by phone before your arrival may be necessary to confirm your slot on the consultant's list that you have come to visit. However in case of emergency, you will be triaged by one of our qualified doctors. As for non-booked visit, we will make sure you are examined by one of our consultants or specialists, depending on the available vacancies.

Once you step into the hospital, head directly to the hospital main reception where you will courteously be welcomed by one of our reception staff, who will start the process of your computerized registration which will only take a few minutes.

Once this procedure is completed, you will have an electronic medical record (EMR), file with a specific identification number that will enable the accessibility to all your relevant data, for the current and all your subsequent hospital visits.

Also, you will be asked to hand over all your prior eye investigations, for scanning, and copies added to your EMR file as well. So do not forget to bring along, all the previous relevant documents linked to your eye problem.

The optometrist's room is the next step. It only takes a couple of minutes for the qualified optometrists to capture your eye refraction and eye pressure using specific computerized machines, and also feed this data into your EMR file.

You will then be led into one of the examination rooms where one of our trained resident doctor will gladly spend about 10minutes with you.

He will listen carefully to your complaint and take, brief notes of your present and past ocular and systemic condition. Then he will have a visual acuity test done and carefully examine your eye using the slit lamp.

All the data collected during this exam will be recorded on your EMR file by the examining doctor. A decision as to if your eyes need to be dilated or not will be taken by the doctor before you meet the consultant.

You will then head back to the waiting area, as the queue counts down till your turn to meet the consultant, comes. Meanwhile, you can enjoy refreshments from the cafeteria on the same floor or sit and relax while linked to the Wi-Fi specially created for your convenience.
