As a proudly independent practice, Victoria J Smith Opticians are a trusted family eye care provider and contact lens practitioner within Millhouses and the surrounding area. Based just south of Sheffield city centre, the practice was established by optometrist Victoria Smith, who has brought her 18 years’ worth of optical experience into the running of the practice.
The Victoria J Smith team are dedicated to providing their patients with a tailored eye examination delivered using the very latest optical equipment, including OCT and Optomap imaging. As well as this, Victoria J Smith also offers ‘at home’ testing as part of their domiciliary services. The team are even part of a local project to provide free eye tests for the homeless.
Working alongside the team at Victoria J Smith Opticians to deliver expert hearing care will be THCP audiologist Mohammed Nabeel, who will be providing a range of services including:
- FREE hearing assessments
- Hearing aids
- Ear wax removal
- Tinnitus consultations
- Hearing protection
Mohammed first discovered his passion for audiology in his early teens, after seeing how hearing loss affected his grandad, turning what was once a very active and sociable person to someone who was becoming quite isolated. It was the first-hand experience of the impact hearing loss could have on someone’s life that spurred on Mohammed and set him on the path to research how he could help.
Mohammed completed his BSc at De Montfort University in Leicester, training at James Paget hospital in Great Yarmouth. Following his graduation Mohammed pursued a career in the NHS, and began working at Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, before becoming a locum Audiologist for Newcastle NHS Trust. Following his time at Newcastle, Mohammed wanted a change to enable him to deliver the best possible treatments to his patients. That’s when he found The Hearing Care Partnership.
“I decided to pursue work in a private setting, with access to state-of-the-art technology, to allow my patients to hear as best as possible, with no limitations. This is what drew me to The Hearing Care Partnership. They provide more clinical testing during their consultations than what I could do during a routine NHS appointment. It was then I realised that THCP is the right company for me. “During my spare time I like to watch football, I am a big Manchester United fan. I am also an avid gym goer and I try to keep fit as much as I can, going for runs in the countryside. I also like to read books and listen to podcasts. I am very interested in other people’s life experiences and to see others’ outlook on life.”
