London Vision Clinic Optometrists
We are confident that our team of eye specialists includes some of the finest laser optometrists in the UK.
Your optometrist will take you through what will almost certainly be the most rigorous eye exam you will ever have – far more detailed than you’ll find in most laser eye surgery clinics. You’ll need to set aside at least two hours for your Initial Screening appointment (of longer, if you opt for the combined Initial Screening and Ophthalmic Exam).
To qualify, aspiring optometrists have to complete a three-year undergraduate degree in Optometry, plus at least a year’s ‘pre-registration’ practice supervised by an experienced practitioner.
During their training, they learn to use an array of tools and techniques that measure the cornea, the dilation of pupils, the pressure inside the eye and visual performance in all sorts of lighting conditions.
London Vision Clinic’s world-class expertise, ongoing research and development and patient focus are the main things that attracted me to the clinic. I had my own laser eye surgery at the clinic in 2012 for significant short-sightedness. It has been life-changing and I am so thrilled with the results. My personal experience is invaluable when explaining the procedure to patients and can now ease their apprehension and answer questions about it having gone through the process herself.
Away from the clinic, I enjoy travel and mountaineering, having summited a number of peaks such as Monte Rosa and Mount Ararat. However as a Londoner, I am often to be found at the local climbing wall! In fact, I enjoy a number of outdoor sports including skiing, which has been revolutionised by my laser vision correction.
As an avid cricket fan, I’m not afraid to admit my delight when Australia win the precious Ashes! Away from the crease, I enjoy photography and travelling across the world. Some of his prominent expeditions have been to remarkably diverse destinations: the high African desert of Ethiopia, the exclusive Arizona wave and the bleak beauty of Antarctica.
I had my own LASIK laser eye surgery back in 2008 at London Vision Clinic. My prescription surgery was -6.00/-1.50 x 169 and -6.75/-4.25 x 6, making me highly astigmatic. My surgery was life-changing, and I enjoy telling my patients about how I found my journey.
I have been fortunate enough to have travelled extensively whilst combining my great passion for food. I am always working hard to improve my culinary skills and am a budding master chef in the making!
Being a -6.00DS before my laser eye surgery in 2013, I was fascinated with how quickly I sprung back into routine life… it was literally life-changing overnight. Attention to detail, research and advancements into refractive surgery are what attracted me to the world-leading institute, London Vision Clinic. When not enjoying some of the unique and fun activities busy London has to offer, I love to travel the world, from climbing mountains and trekking glaciers in Patagonia to soaking up the sun on exotic islands. My travels inspire my passion for food which is evident in my culinary and baking skills! And when I’m not roaming the world, I am working on my next interior design project or capturing my favourite moments of life through a camera lens!
My previous experience is within the eyecare and hospital cataract services. As part of my studies at the University of Manchester, I took part in a 2-week volunteering assignment in Ghana working in an outreach programme that allowed me to pass on my skills and knowledge to fellow optometry students, helping them continue providing eyecare within their local communities. When I’m not at work, I love baking at home, watching Man United play, or heading out to a new local restaurant!
