Summary This A4 format handbook has been developed to assist the nurse working in an ophthalmic environment and provide the patient with safe and consistent ophthalmic nursing care. The authors discovered within their own unit that healthcare professionals, both registered and non-registered joining the workforce were often shown slightly different ways of doing things by the more experienced members of the team which led to confusion for the new starter. They felt it was a bit like driving, bad habits can slip into everyday practice and although not unsafe, it was at times contradictory. So they went.
