Holly Higgins is a hospital optometrist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.

In this vlog she explains the variety that practising in a hospital setting offers her as an optometrist. From core and extended roles, clinics cover everything from refraction, paediatrics and specialist contact lenses, to glaucoma and post-op cataract.

“If you want work that is definitely more clinical then I would say that hospital is the place for you,” she highlights.
