  • Official Opening

    On 23rd March 2012, Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh visited to officially open the new Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, as well as the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital and Saint Mary's Hospital.  The visit was part of the Diamond Jubilee tour and was featured heavily in national and international press.

  • MREH old Drawing

    The Manchester Royal Eye Hospital has occupied numerous buildings and locations since it opened in 1814.  We are trying to gather as many photos of the Eye Hospital, from past and present, as possible.  If you have any photos, please get in touch or send your images to us via the Get Involved tab at the top of the homepage.

  • Young Patient

    Have you ever been a patient or a visitor of Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, or have you worked for us or with us?  To help us celebrate 200 years of this world renowned hospital, we're asking for you to share your memories and experiences with us.  These will then be used throughout the many events we're planning next year and we'd love for you to get in touch.  Find out more information in the Get Involved section of this website.
