The Power List 2019 – Champions of Change
Co-Founder and CEO of Peek Vision, Associate Professor in International Eye Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK.
What is the best part of being an ophthalmologist?
Working in a field that has collectively created solutions to the majority of conditions that lead to sight loss. Also seeing someone have their sight restored and knowing the impact it will have on their life and the lives of those around them.
What has been the pivotal moment of your career?
Moving to Kenya in 2012 to establish 100 temporary eye clinics and creating the first proofs of concept of what is now Peek.
Who are your ophthalmic heroes?
There are many! The ones I get to work with on a regular basis include Allen Foster, Matthew Burton and Clare Gilbert – they are incredible mentors, friends and colleagues.
