Nurse Angela’s Surgery Story: One Year Later…

Only a few weeks ago, we passed the year anniversary of London Vision Clinic nurse Angela’s own Initial Screening. Angela was excited, but, having been told in the past (by a High Street laser eye surgery) that her prescription was too high, her astigmatism too great and her corneas too thin  for her to ever be considered for laser surgery, she hadn’t allowed herself to get her hopes too high. Even after being told – following an extensive range of eye tests… Read more

Choosing The Right Surgical Team For Laser Eye Surgery

A recent survey conducted by London Vision Clinic has shown that 17% of people asked what was most important to them when considering a Laser Eye Surgery provider chose the surgeon and staff carrying out the procedure. London Vision Clinic’s reputation as one of the best clinics in the world is easily attributed to our expert surgeons and staff. Our surgeons are world-renowned and sought after for their extensive experience in the field, and they are supported by a hand-picked team, who are… Read more

Where Do You Do The Laser Eye Treatment?

The surgical procedures are done here at the London Vision Clinic. We have fully operational surgery room in our basement. When patients arrive on the day of their surgery, there is a nice waiting area for them to relax in, which is nice and quiet and in the basement area. They are seen by one of the nursing staff who run through their preoperative medicines. Patients will then have their treatment and move to the recovery area before going home. (Please note:… Read more

LASIK Is Not Just For Christmas

Here’s a Christmas shopping suggestion if you are still thinking about what to buy for the person who has everything – and I mean “everything” – including perhaps unwanted glasses, contact lenses and all their associated paraphernalia. If you are already a London Vision Clinic patient you will appreciate all the little joys of your surgery – like replacing the faulty bulb on the Christmas tree lights, reading a recipe for eggnog or checking those labels while out shopping. When I spoke… Read more

From Emu Creek To Harley Street

Although during her career, Dani had acquired a wide range of nursing qualifications and experiences, she had never worked with eyes before so, in April 2007, when she accepted the position at the London Vision Clinic, she found herself on another fascinating learning curve.   Recently promoted to “Senior Nurse”, Dani ‘s responsibilities include helping explain to patients pre and post-operative procedures. She and the other nurses are on hand to help calm nerves and anxieties before the operation and to answer… Read more

Meeting Senior Nurse Dani

Nursing has to be one of the most varied careers in existence: where and how nurses choose to practice their skills is only limited by their imagination. A shining example of this is the London Vision Clinic´s senior nurse, Dani Barrett. Her professional qualifications have taken her from the tiny Australian outback village of Emu Creek to London’s Harley Street via a journey that would even make ER scriptwriters question the story line as being too far-fetched. Nursing was something of a… Read more

The Fame Game

Walking around the streets of the capital, it is not unusual to spot the odd celebrity. In and around North London where I have been living for the last few months I’ve seen Little Britain’s Matt Lucas walking his dog near Marylebone High Street, Gwyneth Paltrow on the school run in Camden and Kate Moss in a café in Hampstead. Even since this post began to mull around in my brain prior to writing it down – I have spotted the journalist… Read more

I Wish I’d Done This Sooner

I have a friend who is a highly successful international banker, a ferocious skier, cyclist and tennis player. A man who has met and out-maneuvered some of the world’s financial giants handling transactions of trillions (sic) of dollars a day. A man I had always considered to be fearless. That is until I mentioned my Laser Eye Surgery to him. Noting the ugly “readers” hooked on to his sporty neck cord, I suggested that he should consider Laser Eye Surgery and was… Read more

Pass The Rescue Remedy, Please!

Pass The Rescue Remedy, Please! Among the English Heritage blue plaques in Harley Street is one dedicated to the prominent Victorian and Edwardian surgeon Sir Frederick Treves (1853 to 1923) who charged the maximum treatment fee of 100 guineas in the 1890s. He is credited with performing the first appendectomy in England on June 29th 1888 (a useful bit of trivia should you ever find yourself needing it on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”) and of saving King Edward V11’s life… Read more

Location, Location, Location

Location, Location, Location London’s Harley Street is known throughout the world as the centre for medical establishments. Now that it is the new home of the London Vision Clinic I decided to carry out some research into how this area – stretching from Oxford Street to the Marylebone Road – became synonymous with private health care. Today it is owned by the de Walden family and managed by the Howard de Walden estate which aims to keep a mixture of residential, commercial and… Read more
