King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital (KKESH) is a tertiary care ophthalmic facility operated by the Ministry of Health (MOH) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The hospital provides quality tertiary ophthalmic care to the patients it serves and promotes the delivery of Kingdom-wide ophthalmic care through its outreach, educational, and research programs.

For more than two decades, KKESH has been recognized for excellence in its delivery of ophthalmic patient care, for its strong educational programs (including continuing medical education seminars and symposia, and training of ophthalmology residents and subspecialty fellows and other allied healthcare personnel), and its highly successful research programs.

 

Medical Divisions and Departments

The Department of Ophthalmology offers tertiary ophthalmic services through its subspecialty divisions, which include Anterior Segment, Glaucoma, Vitreoretinal, Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, Oculoplastics and Orbit, Neuro-ophthalmology, and Uveitis. These divisions are staffed by board-certified ophthalmologists who have graduated from accredited residency training programs and completed a minimum of one-year subspecialty fellowship training at KKESH.

The Departments of Medicine, Anesthesia and Pathology facilitate ophthalmic care by providing essential non-ophthalmic services. These departments are staffed by board-certified graduates of accredited residency and fellowship programs in their fields of specialization.

The Medical Coordination and Eligibility Department reviews all referrals and identifies patients who meet the tertiary care guidelines for care at KKESH. Patients who meet the tertiary care guidelines for care at KKESH may also be accepted through the Screening Clinic or Emergency Room.
