OCL Vision has expanded its dedicated retina clinic with the appointment of a third consultant surgeon, Dr Rabia Bourkiza.

Bourkiza, who is a vitreoretinal specialist, also worked at London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust and previously held roles at Moorfields Eye Hospital.

‘Whether bringing clarity to cataract patients who’ve lived with cloudy vision for years or saving the sight of those who’ve suffered retinal damage, I’m proud to be joining the OCL Vision family and look forward to using my skills, and OCL’s world-class facilities, to provide life-changing results to as many patients as possible,’ Bourkiza said.

OCL Vision said it received over 3,000 patient enquiries in a month and had appointed seven new support staff to meet demand.
