A Heritage of Service and Excellence

For over forty years, Tongdean Eye Clinic has provided private ophthalmic care to both the local community and patients further afield. Tongdean’s Medical Director, Mr Liu, provides a first class individual service to a loyal and expanding client base. Vivienne Liu, Christopher’s wife, is Practice Manager and you can be certain of a warm welcome from staff at the Clinic.

Expert Ophthalmic Care

Christopher Liu is a distinguished ophthalmic surgeon.  He has extensive experience at Consultant level of all forms of cataract surgery, laser and lens refractive procedures, corneal and external eye disease, artificial corneal (keratoprosthesis) surgery and the treatment of glaucoma. He believes in the importance of taking time to explain clearly his suggested treatment plans and to answer any questions or concerns fully.  Continuity of care is assured since Mr Liu performs all private surgery and procedures himself, and sees all patients personally for follow-ups. 

State of the Art Facilities

The Clinic offers an extensive range of modern equipment and most diagnostic tests can be performed on site - usually in a single visit.  Many minor procedures including the syringing of tear ducts and the treatment of dry eyes, as well as conditions requiring laser treatment can be carried out at the Clinic.

Choice of Treatment Locations

Minor procedures such as YAG laser capsulotomy, syringing of tear ducts for the investigation and treatment of blockages and insertion of Punctum Plugs for dry eyes can be carried out on site at Tongdean Eye Clinic. 

Surgical procedures are performed at the patient’s choice of either The Nuffield Hospital Brighton in Woodingdean, or The Sussex Eye Hospital at Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust in Brighton where Mr Liu works with his trusted teams of support doctors and nursing staff.  Professor Liu will provide full guidance as to the pros and cons for each individual case and will guide patients in choice of treatment location. Laser vision correction is carried out in Hove at the Optimax Clinic. 

Christopher Liu will explain the options fully, including details of medical insurance or terms for self payment.
