For low vision specialists and those who consult them
Low vision at the Mayo clinic
August 13, 2010Posted by on
The clinic was extremely impressive: as you’d expect the facilities, clinical care and staff were all very good indeed. It was interesting to hear exactly the same conversations between optometrist and patient taking place 4,500 miles away from where I usually practise (admittedly in central London I rarely meet horse veterinarians or cowboys, though). Whilst in many ways the Mayo and Moorfields clinics are similar, both in terms of our patient population and our way of working, I certainly picked up some ideas from the Mayo clinic which we can introduce into the Moorfields low vision clinic in London and will be discussing these with our head of department on my return. I hope that I can return the favour for other low vision practitioners visiting London.
