Piece of advice for your younger self?
My advice now would be to go and work with Roger Hitchings sooner.
The most serendipitous moment of your career?
When Vivian Balakrishnan, now Singapore's minister for foreign affairs, very generously stood aside to let me take the role of Specialist Senior Registrar in Glaucoma at Moorfields Eye Hospital in 1994. Clearly that did not impede his career!
The most unexpected turn your career took?
Ending up with a glaucoma consultant position after a Bascom Palmer corneal fellowship.
