Phase 1 of the Hull and East Yorkshire Eye Hospital opened in November 2002, providing 3 operating theatres, a pre assessment suite, day case unit, a 12 bed in patient ward, administrative space and a department library. Phase 2 was completed in April 2011 and provides paediatric and adult out patient clinics along with supporting facilities such as Orthoptics in a purpose built expansion of the existing eye hospital site.

Phase 3 is due to be completed January 2017, providing a much needed expansion of the service to include the entire next floor of the building we are are currently housed in.
