Each one of our Opticians have their own story to tell and their own journey to becoming a part of the team here at Visioncall.
In his own words, Locum Optician, Richard Leach, tells us about his own background and more about what he enjoys about working with us…
“My name is Richard and I have been looking after the eye health of elderly and vulnerable patients for 20 years alongside work in high street primary practice.
My own career path has went from work experience in a small optical practice in Worthing to becoming manager there and then becoming a mature student in my mid 20s at Cardiff University.
I studied for 4 years, it was a great time in my life and I am proud to have attained a First class degree.
I then moved on as a post graduate studying under Dr Margaret Woodhouse who has done much to help paediatric and patients who cannot communicate, developing techniques and equipment to enable accurate eye tests.
I really love my work with the team at Visioncall, getting to work within care homes meeting patients as well as getting to know the staff looking after the residents.
In many cases its simple practical things that can make the biggest difference to patients’ lives such as prescribing spectacles they have lost, broken or forgotten about.
Better vision can help with seeing a smile again or providing immediate improvement in their mobility, so it is essential assistance – and we get to do this important work every day!
Sometimes it can be challenging but I firmly believe we can bring some fun and interaction into our patients’ lives.”
