About me

Lucy Barker has been a consultant since 2013. She is a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital specialising in paediatric ophthalmology, adult and paediatric cataract surgery and strabismus. She is also an honorary consultant at Great Ormond Street Hospital for children.

Lucy trained at Moorfields Eye Hospital, completing a fellowship in paediatric ophthalmology and strabismus in 2012-2013. She worked for four years at the Rwandan International Institute for Ophthalmology in Kigali, Rwanda, again specialising in paediatric ophthalmology and strabismus, which provided a wealth of experience. She returned to the UK and completed her training in paediatric cataract at Great Ormond Street Hospital for children before taking up her current position.

Lucy’s clinic sees children with a wide range of eye conditions including:

• Routine vision screening for babies and children
• Assessment of a baby or child with poor vision
• Testing for glasses, including long-sight, short-sight and astigmatism
• Amblyopia (lazy eye) and patching
• Cataracts in babies and children
• Squint (strabismus) and double vision including treatment with botox or surgery
• Problems with convergence
• Problems with visual interpretive issues
• Conditions affecting the front of the eye
• Allergic eye disease
• Lid inflammation / blepharitis
• Eyelid cysts (styes/chalazion)
• Conjunctivitis

Lucy is heavily involved with teaching, both in the clinical setting and lecturing. She regularly teaches on a variety of courses, including the UCL MSc Ophthalmology course and the Moorfields Cornea and Cataract symposium. She also remains involved with training of medical personnel in sub-Saharan Africa through associations with World Sight Foundation and the West African College of Surgeons and has co-authored the OST curriculum-based textbook ‘Training in Ophthalmology’.
