Nurses at the London Vision Clinic
Nurses at the London Vision Clinic combine art with science. The art is developed through experience with patients. The science comes from the knowledge gained through education and ongoing professional development.
At the London Vision Clinic, nurses play a vital role in every step of the patient process. Before treatment, they conduct tests and imaging on your eyes to provide the data optometrists need to carry out their assessments and provide you with treatment recommendations.
Should you be suitable for treatment, our nurses will sit down with you and provide you with instructions on how to administer your eye drops and post-treatment medications. Of course, they will be happy to answer any clinical questions you may have, before or after treatment.
During treatment, nurses assist surgeons in the operating theatre as they carry out procedures.
After treatment, nurses will repeat visual tests conducted prior to treatment, in order to provide optometrists with the necessary data that informs their aftercare recommendations.
The following are a few of the nurses that have chosen to practice at the London Vision Clinic.
