I qualified as an Optometrist, also known as an Ophthalmic Optician, in Queensland Australia in 1979. After graduation I worked in Queensland and the Northern Territory for five years providing a flying Optometric service to remote communities in the outback. This unique role gave me access to more primary eye care and unusual medical conditions than the usual graduate optometrist.

In 1985 I left my native Australia and set up in England, working in Knightsbridge in central London before moving to Bath in 1986 where I worked for an optical chain.
