OND is a 1 year course leading to a specialized diploma in Ophthalmic Nursing. In addition to technical skills in ophthalmic surgery–covering ocular trauma surgery, vitreoretinal surgery, anterior segment surgeries (ocular surface, refractive surgery, cataract and keratoplasties), glaucoma surgeries, strabismus surgeries, and oculoplasty and orbit surgeries–the student will learn about and reflect on leadership aspects of nursing applicable to an ophthalmic setting.
Infection control, safety and medical errors, patient experience, pre-op preparation and post-op care, and triage in ophthalmology are covered. Students will have clinical rounds in the ophthalmic emergency room, and varied general and subspecialty ophthalmology clinics. The programme begins from September 2018. Read More.
