Our founder, Professor Reinstein, wanted to create a clinic where the world’s most advanced and skilled laser eye surgery would be matched by a dedication to the ultimate standards of customer care and service. Our expert Patient Care Coordinators are fundamental to that mission.
Preparing for any surgery can be an anxious time, and most people are particularly sensitive about their eyes. With good reason: our vision is one of the most precious gifts we possess. We have yet to meet a patient who wasn’t at least a little nervous (and would be quite concerned if we did!).
We understand this anxiety, and we feel it’s important for you to have a friendly, expert. personal and knowledgeable guide at your side throughout the laser eye surgery process. Someone who can answer your questions, clarify any issues and provide a consistently reassuring presence, from your first appointment through the screening and testing phases to the laser eye surgery itself – and beyond.
I was initially anxious about the procedure, as I am very squeamish. The staff at the London Vision Clinic put me at ease. The procedure was quick and painless, with a short recovery time. I would recommend the surgery with the London Vision Clinic to anyone considering laser eye treatment.”
That guide is your Patient Care Coordinator, or PCC. He or she will be the first member of the team you meet, and will explain the whole process to you. Your PCC will then remain your key point of contact throughout your treatment, so you always know whom to call if you have any questions or concerns.
Our PCCs go through a comprehensive training programme to ensure that they can accurately answer the most common questions our patients ask – and many of the less common ones too. They’ve guided thousands of patients along the road to successful, life-changing laser eye surgery; from the very first phone call to the last aftercare appointment. Rest assured, with one of our PCCs you will be in expert hands.
