David works as an optometrist. As well as his clinical duties he also writes training materials and delivers training to optometrists, online and on site. His interests include triathlons, skiing, sailing and flying.  David has been raising money for National Eye Research Centre for over 10 years. David says, “In my profession I see a lot of pathology, for some of which there is no cure. By raising money for the charity my hope is that through research more effective treatments, and possibly cures, might be found to relieve the distress caused by eye disease, sight loss and blindness.”
