Moorfields was founded in 1804 and opened in 1805 in London. We are the oldest and one of the largest centres for ophthalmic treatment, teaching and research in the world.
The London dispensary for curing diseases of the eye and ear was opened in 1805 by John Cunningham Saunders (1773 – 1810). MEHD brings 200 years of excellence in eye care to the Middle East. It is the first overseas branch of Moorfields Eye Hospital London, the largest Eye Care facility in Europe.
