Educated and skilled in the latest technology

The nursing team at the London Vision Clinic combine art with science. The art is developed through experience with patients. Science comes from the knowledge gained through education and ongoing professional development.

At the London Vision Clinic, our ophthalmic technicians take patients through testing across their journey. They play a vital role in the patient process. Before treatment, they test and screen your eyes to provide your optometrist with data. This helps their assessments of your eyes and treatment recommendations. They are very happy to walk you through what each machine measures and answer any questions.

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 on the day of surgery. Of course, they will be happy to answer any clinical queries you may have, before or after treatment.

During treatment, nurses assist surgeons in the operating theatre as they carry out procedures. After treatment, ophthalmic technicians repeat the same tests to inform aftercare recommendations.

I joined the clinic as a staff nurse in 2005 and have since experienced lots of great changes as well as significant growth of the clinic team. More recently, I was promoted to Senior Lead Nurse and have enjoyed training our newer nurses.

I had my own laser eye surgery in 2006 and ever since I have loved the freedom my improved vision has given me. It was such an interesting experience being on the other side of the surgery, rather than assisting the surgeon! In 2018, I had Laser Blended Vision to treat my need for reading glasses. The clinic is a very special place for its patients as well as its employees. Both receive the best in every possible way. I am very happy and proud to have experienced both. In my spare time, I love travelling and reading. I love trialling new recipes and workouts from The Body Coach, and began piano lessons a few years ago!

Waheebah – Ophthalmic Technician

Born and raised in London, when at sixth form, I wasn’t sure what if I wanted to go University or do an apprenticeship. I ended embarking upon an apprenticeship in the eye health sector. I worked for Specsavers for nearly two years and then worked for an independent optician in Covent Garden. Eventually I realised I wanted to be involved in the clinical side as I already had the knowledge and experience in the optical industry. I wake up every morning, and feel very lucky in what I’m doing now. It’s such a positive environment, and I enjoy meeting new patients every day. Outside of work I love to travel and go for picnics. I have huge passion for latest fashion/make-up!
