The hospital was founded on the Moorfields in 1805 as the London Dispensary for curing diseases of the Eye and Ear, by John Cunningham Saunders.

Moorfield's original PAS went back to the early 1980s, and, although it had served the hospital well, with all the changes in the health service it was decided that something easier to use was needed.
The hospital began to consider investing in a UNIX mainframe and looking at different relational databases such as Oracle, Ingres, Sybase, or Informix- "none of which were ideal and could prove to be extremely expensive," according to Winnard.
One of the main driving forces of changing the system at Moorfields had been the complete overhaul of how the NHS is run in the mid 1990s including the introduction of a patient charter with its restrictions on waiting lists and the creation of purchaser/provider relationships with health authorities.

For example, the hospital is currently totally upgrading its patient administration system (PAS), which holds all patient demographics such as address, date of birth, GP, admission details and so on.

 BBC NEWS | Health | Lenses 'could cut infection risk'
In the catchment area of the Royal Eye Hospital, there are 55,000 contact lens wearers, including 30,000 hydrogel lens wearers and 1,700 silicone hydrogel lens wearers.
Extrapolating out their findings, based on the incidence rate in the population served by the hospital, the researchers estimated rates of 96 cases of severe keratitis per 10,000 wearers a year for hydrogel lenses, compared with almost 20 per 10,000 wearers a year for silicone hydrogel lenses.
But John Dart, a consultant ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye Hospital, said he had some concerns about the way the study had applied its findings to the whole contact lens-wearing population in the UK because there were different patterns of lens-wearing in each area.

He was also consultant ophthalmic surgeon to Guy’s Hospital and held consultant posts at King Edward VII Hospital for Officers and the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth, London.
