For patients, it contains useful ‘patient journey’ information such as how to book or change an Eye Clinic appointment, what to expect during a visit to the Eye Clinic and directions/maps and transport information.The website also has referral and other information about the Outback Eye Service, an outreach ophthalmic service that is delivered by the Prince of Wales Hospital Department of Ophthalmology for patients living in regional NSW.
