Specsavers has further enhanced its range of eye care services by providing their professional staff with bespoke training in post-operative cataract management.
Over 70 optometrists from Specsavers 23 businesses across Northern Ireland attended the training programme facilitated by leading Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon Professor Johnathan Moore and his team at Cathedral Eye Clinic, Belfast.
Jill Campbell, head of enhanced optical services at Specsavers and store director in Lisburn, explained, ‘As good post-operative care for cataract patients is important and Specsavers optometrists are continually updating their skills and knowledge to provide the very best service to our customers.”
Professor Moore is a well-respected leader in the field of cataract surgery both as a practising surgeon and as a researcher and trainer for surgeons and optometrists across the world. He is also Medical Director of Cathedral Eye Clinic.
‘Cataract surgery is relatively simple and is virtually painless. Problems are rare but as with any surgery risks are carried. Post-operative care is very important for successful healing. Given the easy local access patients have with their Specsavers stores it is very helpful that their optometrists have the skills and knowledge to support these patients during the post-operative period. We were delighted to provide this unique training and look forward to an ongoing working relationship with the Specsavers stores in Northern Ireland,’ said Professor Moore.
