Don't take our word for it

"I've been working at Eye Vet for almost 11 years. I have never worked in such a supportive team as I do now. We discuss changes and are open to try new ideas. I do not believe I would find a more amazing team to work with."


"After only being a member of the team for 3 months, I can honestly say the team at Eye Vet including all vets, nurses, PCAs and client care team are welcoming, professional and caring in all aspects of their roles. I am very glad I made the move from first opinion to Eye Vet."


"I couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with - they are like my second family. Their loving, caring and professional nature is forefront of everything they do. Seeing a patient come in blind and then go home visual is job satisfaction to the max. There is excellent work/life balance and the support received from the whole team is superb."


"Best work-life balance I've ever had"


"Good work-life balance. Regular bakery orders. Always get a lunch break. Few and far between OOH work. Amazing support from dedicated anaesthetists. I love the team I work with."
