Mr Ezra commented: “Teaching is one of the key areas we are developing and the Keeler Vantage Plus Digital is a valuable tool that really helps us to show our Fellows what they need to be treating and the on-going progress of treatment. I have worked very closely with Laura Haverley at Keeler to ensure we get the right product that will enhance and develop this very important work.”

Thamby Rajah, Clinical Sister and Out Patient Coordinator at Moorfields added: “One of my key responsibilities is to make sure that diagnostic equipment is available and ready to go and Keeler streamlines this process by ensuring products are up to date and working correctly.
