City University London reopens eye clinic after moving location

An eye clinic facility used to train optometry students and test the sight of the public has been reopened by City University London

John Bercow

An eye clinic at City University London was officially reopened by House of Commons Speaker, the Rt Hon John Bercow MP (pictured), on Tuesday (19 January).

The facility, previously known as the Fight for Sight Clinic, had been based in Bath Street, Old Street. It reopens as City Sight in the more central London location of Northampton Square.

The new clinic will deliver a wide range of eye care services to the general public, including eye examinations with state-of-the-art equipment such as 3D optical coherence topography. The facility also has specialist clinics for children, contact lenses, binocular vision problems, specific learning difficulties, visual impairment and colour vision defects.

The clinic is also used as a teaching facility for optometry undergraduates to learn through seeing patients during the final years of study.

Speaking at the opening, head of optometry and visual sciences at City University London, Professor David Edgar, said: “The move of City Sight to the Northampton Square complex is the fulfillment of a long-term ambition for us to return our clinics to the hub of City University life.”
