For over 20 years, Professor Lightman has run an ocular inflammation and infection service at Moorfields, seeing patients with all types of uveitis and ocular infections.
In addition she runs a dedicated weekly paediatric uveitis clinic, which manages a wide variety of these problems in children – including that associated with juvenile arthritis.
Her practice offers consultations and follow up management with full diagnostic facilities available. Minor operations such as for chalazion, and watering eyes are also carried out.
Professor Lightman is Chairman of the Education Committee at UCL’s Institute of Ophthalmology, and also a Task Force leader with the International Council of Ophthalmology. In 1990 she became the first Duke Elder Professor of Ophthalmology, and in 1993 successfully applied for the University Chair of Ophthalmology which she currently holds.
Professor Lightman is particularly interested in Uveitis, medical retina, ocular infection, and paediatric ocular infection.
