The Royal Eye Hospital was situated in Southwark from 1892 to 1980.
The hospital, which was located at St George's Circus, opened in 1892 as the successor to the South London Ophthalmic Hospital which dated from 1857.
The in-patients department was closed in 1976 when it was replaced by a Royal Eye Hospital Ward at St Thomas' Hospital. The out patients department closed in 1980.
The hospital buildings were eventually demolished, with the site used for McLaren House, a hall of residence for students at London South Bank University that opened in 1996.
