We have a large team of allied health professionals who support the consultants. We have healthcare assistants and ophthalmic technicians who are trained and have specialist skills to perform diagnostic tests and assist with surgical and laser procedures.
At Torbay we have been national leaders in pioneering training and development of ophthalmic specialist nurses. Our nurses deliver the majority of our intravitreal treatments, deliver ophthalmic local anaesthetics prior to surgery, undertake clinics, and triage our emergency calls.
We have a team of orthoptists who care for people with eye movement problems and help assess children’s vision and visual development.
