How to visit Clinica London without setting foot outside your home!
Via the magic of the internet, we are happy to enable you to ‘let your fingers do the walking’ on a virtual tour of our clinic. In this post, we’ve included the full tour below, which you can navigate through using the white arrows. Further down in the post, we’ve restarted the tour on each level of the clinic, just in case you need help finding your way. We hope you enjoy the tour as much as we enjoy working here every day, and we hope to see you here in person soon!
Let us guide you through our clinic
Follow our Google 360 Tour and walk into the clinic, up the stairs to the reception then up to the first and second floors.
Outside the entrance to 140 Harley Street, there are just a few steps leading up to the double black doors, which have little round bay trees on each side. To get into Clinica London you have to press the doorbell on the left-hand side, marked Clinica London, and our reception staff will buzz you in. You can push open the door on the right side of the double doors and you are inside the lovely, spacious front hall.
As you walk along the front hall you will see some stairs ahead of you. You need to go up these stairs to get to Reception. There is signage on the wall in the entrance hall directing you towards Clinica London.
As you go up the stairs towards Reception and reach the mezzanine landing you will see a sign that reads “Clinica London Reception” and you will find inside a little conservatory room with one of our receptionists waiting to greet you.
In Reception, you will see a beautiful, calming fish tank on the right with live fish, and our reception staff will advise you that you can hang your coat here or take it with you up to the next floor. You can take a seat and talk to the receptionist about your appointment. This is where you hand in your registration form if you have not already sent it in by email. It is also where you come after you have seen a consultant or the nurse and before you leave the leave the clinic.
The Treatment Room
From the mezzanine floor, you can climb up one more flight of stairs to the first floor, where we have another small waiting area, our Treatment Room 1 and both Consultation rooms 1 and 2. In the treatment room, you will see a comfortable operating couch, where small ophthalmic and dermatological procedures are frequently carried out. In this room, we are able to do:
- eyelid surgery
- chalazion incision and curettage
- skin (dermatology) assessments and treatments
- macular degeneration eye injections
- cross-linking for keratoconus
- medical and cosmetic anti-wrinkle injections
- hyaluronate gel filler
In fact, there is a much longer list of small procedures that we undertake here, depending on what your problems are.
Consultation Room 1
As we go back out into the small hallway, you will see the small, round, white table where patients can wait before going into the consultation room. You will see the entrance for consultation room 1.
I (Jane Olver) work in this room, and here I have my slit-lamp, which is a Haag-Streit Swiss slit-lamp, and plenty of space for patients who come with various family members. There is a vision chart, eye examining equipment and behind the wood panelling you can come with me and have a look at the area where we test wet eyes and dry eyes. We have the nasal endoscopy, the syringing and the tear osmolarity and do the eye care tonometry.
Consultation Room 2
Going back out into the small hallway by the small white table, we will be able to go back out to the main carpeted hallway and look into consultation room 2. Consultation room 2 is very similar to consultation room 1. There are some different pictures in this room. The dermatologist, the glaucoma surgeon, cataract surgeon and medical retina surgeon work mostly in consultation room 2. The children’s eye doctor will work either in consultation room 1 or consultation room 2. The dermatologist likes to work in consultation room 2 and she has an examining couch, her dermatoscope and her cryotherapy available here. Consultation room 2 also has a beautiful slit-lamp and it has a medical laser for treating post-cataract capsule thickening and carrying out angle closure glaucoma treatment.
Let’s go up to the second floor now and I will show you where the main waiting room is and our aesthetic and dry eye room. The technical room is also found on the second floor.
The Meeting Room
Once up on the second floor, on the right, you will find our spacious meeting room. We call this a meeting room rather than a waiting room as it has multiple uses. This is where patients can sit and wait before they see the consultant. There is a lot of literature available to read, including medical literature, and there are many relaxing books and magazines. There is also a small area for children to play and soft music in the background. There are tea and coffee-making facilities and biscuits and water are available.
There is always someone on hand to look after you, make sure that you have got tea or coffee and that you are kept informed. You will come up to this room if you have not filled in your registration form beforehand. You can sit at the big central table, fill in the form and the nurse will come and collect it from you, enter all the details onto the electronic medical system, then prepare you to see the doctor.
It is also called the meeting room because clinic staff hold their regular meetings there and have lunch there. There are no “hidden areas” at Clinica London – medical staff and patients share the same space.
Most importantly on the second floor, there is the loo marked “WC”, which is opposite the entrance of the waiting room.
The Technical Room
As you come out of the meeting room, the WC is in front of you. To the right you will see the technical room, which is where we measure the eye for cataract implant surgery and do all the tests at the back of the eye and the front of the eye, such as OCT, SLO visual fields and autorefraction.
The Aesthetic and Dry Eye Room
Straight ahead you can go into the Aesthetic and Dry Eye room. This is one of our most beautiful rooms and this is where patients will recover after they have had their eyelid surgery.
It is also the room where the Intraceuticals facials and the Ultherapy treatments are done. The large, cream treatment couch is also where patients with Dry Eyes have their MiBo Thermoflo treatment. Intraceuticals and Ultherapy are cosmetic aesthetic treatment, whereas the MiBoFlo is specifically for treating meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eyes.
