Hamza Mussa: “I am a driven optometrist with a particular interest in ocular disease, ophthalmic photography and pre-reg education.
I work in a practice heavily involved in local commissioned enhanced optical services (EOS) and regularly carry out MECS, cataract post operative checks and glaucoma refinement appointments as well as regular eye examinations.
Alongside my clinical duties I am also a Cert 3/4, pre-reg and contact lens optician supervisor. I am in charge of the clinic diary as well as regularly conducting staff training particularly around EOS to promote the services available to our patients and refine in-store triage process to ensure all patients receive the highest standard of care.
Outside of practice I work for Specsavers professional advancement team as as consultant assisting in the development of resources that benefit pre-registration and newly qualified optometrists and facilitating events designed to develop the next generation of practitioners.
I also run a personal blog on instagram around my life in practice with over 30,000 followers where I share ophthalmic imagery and cases I come across in practice.”
