Optician Awards: Future vision

Emma White speaks to Jubilee Vision Award 2022 winner, Esha Dutta, about her passion for optometry

To celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years as head of state, Optician joined forces with Specsavers to introduce a new Jubilee Vision Award for the 2022 Optician Awards. Entrants – students, trainees and those working within a retail optical environment for less than two years – were asked to spell out how they would like their career to develop over the next 10 years and their blueprint for how the optical profession and business should develop.

Vision Express optometrist Esha Dutta is the proud winner of the award, collecting her trophy at the glitzy annual awards night at the Hilton on London’s Park Lane last November. ‘I had a fantastic time at the awards ceremony. I was very surprised to win but my husband was not; he said he knew I’d win,’ says Dutta. The judging panel praised the optometrist’s ‘impressive personal journey, showing a good understanding of the sector’. One judge said her entry was ‘a blueprint for the passion all professionals should demonstrate.’
