Ophthalmic nurse practitioners
Our nurse practitioners help to assess, diagnose and manage glaucoma. This includes giving you advice on your condition, and supporting you to put in eye drops. They play an important role in advocating for you, and provide resources to help you to make informed decisions about your care. Our nurse practitioners are committed to supporting new ideas and ways of working, and improving the way we care for you.
