About

Background

Following a first degree in maths at Queens University Belfast, Dave studied optometry (or ophthalmic optics as it was then) at City University. After a pre-registration year at Moorfields Eye Hospital, and a short time in hospital and locum practice, Dave joined the staff at City University in 1977. He has been with City since then and is currently Emeritus Professor.
