It is always good to hear from colleagues as their careers in eye care evolve. Just like Harry and Sally in the romcom, but without the romantic overtones I hasten to add, specialist optometrist Christian Dutton and I have been in occasional contact since the start of the century. From his time as lead optometrist at Asda, through his time as an assessor for WOPEC, as an examiner for the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers and College of Optometrists Councillor, to his more recent role as professional services manager with Evolutio Care Innovations, Christian has always impressed with his ambition and drive. I remember being particularly impressed with his work for the Tibet Healthcare Project, for whom he was instrumental in the setting up of a purpose-built hospital offering eye care to over 3,500 impoverished people in the Tibetan region.
So, I was all ears when he contacted me recently to tell of his latest project; a YouTube channel offering educational resources for both optometrists and patients.
