What gets you going in terms of research?

It’s really curiosity that motivates me – asking a question or encountering a problem, and then going out there to find the solution. I have a considerable dislike for dogmatic thinking and process and confess that when I find flaws, I do challenge them using fundamentals as a basis. The use of trifocal diffractive lenses in post corneal laser surgery patients is one example; it is something that some “gurus” say should not be done as the corneal and lens optics are not compatible with each other. But we perform this in carefully selected cases – with phenomenal outcomes.
