I would just like to know what A-Levels do you need, what degree do you need, the environment that you would work in and how is the salary as well as the hours per week?

You'd be doing a medicine course then two years of foundation training and finally 7 years of specialism training in opthalmology to become a consultant opthalmologist.
For a -levels you need biology and chemistry, you can also do physics or maths or any other subject.
Most opthalmologists work in hospital settings and some are on-call, so you could be paged randomly to doa n operation sometimes. The average consultant opthalmologist would earn £70,000 to £100,000 per annum.

and also i agree with BChemGee
a-level biol, chem, phys, maths - these would all be very helpful
i did my BSc in Biomed at UCL - specialising in Neuroscience, which is helpful when getting into ophtalmo
but you need BSc degree + medical-related doctorate, or just MBBS
+ you need further specialist training for many years after!
I cannot comment on what the the work is like and the salary
best of luck with your research!
