The 100th Special Edition

Welcome to a special post on the London Vision Clinic blog … no, we are not marking the end of the summer – despite the fact that with all the wind and rain this week London has felt far more like autumn than August.

Nor am I going to write about the ESCRS 2010 (European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons) which this year is convening in Paris -perhaps you remember the articles from last year’s gathering in Barcelona.

No, instead I am going to open a glass of bubbly to mark this momentous moment … this is the 100th article I have written for the London Vision Clinic blog.

The previous ninety-nine posts have covered a varied bag of eye health related topics, the opportunity to meet some of the exceptional people who make up the London Vision Clinic and to delve deeper into the personal experiences of a few patients.

They have included the London Vision Clinic’s continued expansion and the move from Devonshire Place to the new and much larger clinic at 138 Harley Street. Over the last couple of years, I have also moved (four times) and have written these pieces from different desks at many locations looking out at a variety of views as the seasons have changed. I have looked up from my laptop at the skylines of London, Norfolk, Malaga, Barcelona and Beverly Hills for my inspiration.

Since the blog began, new members of staff have joined the elite team and some others have celebrated massive changes in their personal lives – like getting married or becoming parents. Through it all every one has always given 100% professional effort to their career in eye health – devoting themselves to the continued effort of always providing excellent care and as near perfect eye sight as possible for each of their patients.

We patients also know that the care and connection to the clinic continues long after our surgery is over and I am looking forward to meeting you at the next patient event.

So in this special 100th edition of the blog, I would like to raise a glass and drink to the continued and well deserved success of the London Vision Clinic … and to the next 100 blog posts.
