Ophthalmology Service in South Wales 

Mr Brian Patterson

Mr Brian Patterson will be heading up our ophthalmology service.

Brian received the Royal College Certificate in Ophthalmology in 2002, whilst undertaking a residency at Glasgow University.

He has worked as a veterinary ophthalmologist in the South West of England since 2004, treating both companion animals and horses.

He has lectured both nationally and internationally on the subject and has been involved in teaching at Bristol University for several years

Our aim is to simplify the management of eye problems for all concerned by minimising patient travel requirements whilst maximising the ease with which clinicians can obtain advice, without obligation, as well as involving us directly in solving ophthalmic problems.

Central to our service is the ability to.offer cutting edge diagnostic and surgical solutions whilst being sensitive to the financial limitations of many clients, appreciating in particular the need to preserve insurance funds for ongoing first opinion healthcare.
