My-iClinic ophthalmologist to tackle myopia surge

Finchley-based independent eye hospital My-iClinic has appointed a consultant ophthalmologist to treat retina conditions and manage the increasing number of patients living with myopia.

Yvonne Luo will help to expand the clinic’s portfolio and address the growing number of myopic patients with an increased risk of developing retinal detachment and sight loss if left untreated.

One of Luo’s specialisms is vitrectomy surgery to treat floaters and underlying retinal tears using ’27 gauge’ instrumentation for a minimal wound and faster recovery time.

Clinic director, John Bolger, said: ‘We are delighted Ms Luo is joining the team. She will be a valuable addition to our group of skilled ophthalmologists, optometrists, nurses and support workers, all committed to providing the very best – and affordable – bespoke eye health services to patients in North London and the surrounding areas.

‘We’re dedicated to sourcing state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and ensuring we remain at the forefront of eye care treatment and personalised patient care.’
