Johnathan qualified in 2000 from Glasgow Caledonian University and undertook his pre-registration year at Royal Liverpool and Alder Hey Hospitals, developing a core understanding of pathology and management of eye disorders.
He then spent time as a locum and travelled to Australia and New Zealand before working for various large companies before settling into a full time NHS role in Glasgow.
During his years within the ophthalmology service he developed specialist knowledge in the areas of children’s eyecare, glaucoma and macular disease alongside core optometry.
Johnathan spent 3 years as a co-Director of an independent practice in Hamilton before a period with Optimax laser clinics and then The Outside Clinic providing home visit eye examinations across the West of Scotland.
Before the Covid pandemic Johnathan joined the NHS Glasgow & Clyde Diabetic Retinal Screening team and still works with them, providing reassurance to the 70,000+ diabetic patients within the Health Board.
Away from the consulting room, Johnathan has always had an interest in optometry development and has served on both the Association of Optometrists Council and The College of Optometrists Council, more recently as a Trustee on the Board of Directors.
Most of the time left is spent with family but every so often on a nice sunny day he might sneak away for a few holes of golf 🙂
