St. Thomas Eye Hospital was established in 2010 as the North Western Eye Centre until the name was changed to the current one just before relocating into its ultra-modern surgical centre in 2014.
Over the years, we have invested heavily in human resource capacity and technology to become one of Ghana’s foremost centres for performing advanced and complex eye surgical procedures like retinal detachment, micro-incisional vitreoretinal surgeries (MIVS), glaucoma drainage device implant surgeries (GDDs), Strabismus and various forms of Laser surgical procedures.
The Hospital is indeed the first facility to introduce modern phacoemulsification cataract surgeries (often called Laser Cataract Surgeries) to Ghana as a routine procedure (Daily Graphic, January 20, 2011).
We provide a wide range of ophthalmic services and pride ourselves for our pro-poor activities in providing free vision restoration surgeries to 600-800 patients each year. We deliver more than 3,000 low cost spectacles and provide free community screening to more than 20,000 people living in deprived communities in the southern regions of Ghana. These are delivered through our community outreach programs supported by Unite for Sight, a US-based non-profit leader in Global Health.
In 2018, the Hospital opened a new and ultramodern outpatient office on the prestigious Osu Oxford Street, Accra.
