Frequently Asked Questions



Mr Hu specializes in Cataract Surgery and in the diagnosis and treatment of Glaucoma, which are among the commonest diseases affecting sight. He also manages all aspects of General Ophthalmology.


Mr Hu will assess your eye condition. Trained members of his team may assist with certain parts of the examination and testing.
For consultations in clinic, please do not plan to drive on the day of your consultation.  Eye drops may need to be instilled in your eyes, and these may cause your vision to be blurred and sensitive to bright light for several hours. Your vision will be assessed with your glasses or contact lenses, if you wear them. You will then need to remove your glasses or contact lenses for your eyes to be examined and tested. If you wear eye make-up, this may become smudged during examination of your eyes.
If you wear glasses or contact lenses, please bring them together with any cases, solutions and optician reports.  Please bring a list of any eye drops, tablets or other medications you use.  Please bring some sunglasses or a hat to guard your eyes against bright light after the consultation.

Please make sure you give us your correct postal address and other contact details so that we can correspond with you. It is our policy to keep your General Practitioner informed regarding your treatment.  Please give us your GP’s name and address to enable us to do this.


No, you don’t need health insurance to use Mr Hu’s services.  We deal directly with our patients to offer a high-quality service.
We deal directly with our patients for the settlement of fees.  If you wish to use your health insurance, you will need to lodge a claim directly with your insurer, and we suggest you check whether your insurer will accept such a claim before booking. We are unable to make any insurance claims on behalf of patients.

Please contact your insurer before your consultation, to check the terms of your policy, particularly the level and type of outpatient cover you have, including any reimbursement limits on individual consultation fees. Please note you are responsible for any fees not covered by your insurer.
