Orthoptic and Nursing Staff

Our consultants have a team of highly professional trained orthoptists and nurses. An orthoptist is a university qualified health care practitioner trained in eye disorders. They will assess you and perform specialised tests of visual function and acuity using a range of diagnostic equipment.

Some tests prior seeing the doctor may include:

  • Taking a full medical and eye history
  • Checking Visual Acuity
  • Measuring Intra Ocular Pressure (IOP)
  • Instillation of dilating drops
  • Patient education
  • Diagnostic tests such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
  • Assist the doctor with procedures such as intravitreal injections


Orthoptic student placements

Many University of Technology orthoptic students complete placements at The Eye Clinic. During their time with us they are fully supervised as they become familiar with:

  • The consultation process
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Ophthalmic treatments and surgeries
  • Managing patient flows
