What is your role at Optical Express?

“My name is David Teenan and I’m one of Optical Express’ surgeons. This involves carrying out laser vision correction on a regular basis as well as intraocular work such as implantable contact lenses and cataract surgery. At Optical Express we have an International Medical Advisory Board which is made up of some of the world leaders in refractive surgery. Having this board allows me to work closely with some of the greatest ophthalmologists in the world, and to learn from their experience.”

What is the best thing about working for Optical Express?

“The best thing about working for Optical Express for me is being able to change people’s lives. On a daily basis people come in wearing glasses, they undergo laser vision correction, and they leave happy.”

How would you describe the equipment and technology Optical Express uses?

“The technology that we have here is amazing. We have access to some of the best lasers in the world. We’ve recently upgraded our Intralases, which we use to create the flaps, which now makes this one of the safest procedures in the world.

From a surgeons point of view one of the great things about Optical Express is that we have a vast database of electronic medical records. This allows us to continually audit our outcomes and improve our patient care.”
