Chris graduated from the University of Bristol and spent several years working in first opinion mixed practice in the North Yorkshire Moors and Cumbria before deciding to focus on ophthalmology. Chris is a clinical director of Veterinary Vision, a dedicated ophthalmology referral practice with three centres across the North of England and is a clinical fellow at Nottingham Trent University. Chris has presented clinical research at national and international veterinary ophthalmology conferences, and has a particular interest in topographical analysis of the cornea, corneal cross linking and intraocular vitreoretinal microsurgery.
Christine graduated as a veterinary surgeon from Munich Veterinary School in 1995 and immediately moved to the UK for an Internship and a Residency at the AHT in Newmarket. She holds both the RCVS and the ECVO diploma in Veterinary Ophthalmology and has worked in multi-discipline referral centres in the UK until taking over Eye Veterinary Clinic in Hereford in 2015. Christine loves her clinical work but also enjoys teaching which includes both mentoring ECVO residents and post-graduate veterinary surgeons wishing to improve their ophthalmology skills for general practice.
