Clinical Services Manager

I joined Optical Express as a qualified optometrist and completed my refractive training, managing pre and post-operative patients. I then became a pre-reg supervisor working with a graduate optometrist as they completed their final year of assessment and training.

After that, I trained as a surgery support optometrist. It was a challenging role assisting intraocular surgeons on the day of surgery.  From there I joined the Clinical Services department, which has allowed me to develop my career further.

In my current role as Clinical Services Manager, I perform NHS eye examinations and contact lens-related consultations and oversee the pre and post-operative care of refractive surgery patients. I also perform a senior clinical support role, providing clinical guidance and advice to colleagues on a range of clinical topics and presenting at CET approved events on topics relating to professional development.

In 2016 I gained Independent Prescribing Status, and I’m now a mentor for the Optical Express Independent Prescribing Course.

I thrive on the variety of my role. We have access to the latest technology and products to provide our patients with best possible outcomes. One of my favourite aspects of my role is reviewing a patient the day after surgery – it really is life changing for them.

I’d definitely recommend joining Optical Express. My career’s progressed so much in the years I’ve been with the company. It’s unique in the opportunities for training and development that it can offer.
