Darryl graduated as an optometrist in 1992 with a Bachelor of Optometry and in 2006 gained his therapeutic qualification with a Certificate in Ocular Pharmacology and Postgraduate Diploma in Ocular Therapeutics.
He has worked at Visique Wight Optometrists for 15 years, the last 7 years as the owner. Darryl has also done several optometry based projects in Tokelau, Fiji, Uzbekistan and most recently in Yemen. This involved setting up a refraction programme to teach and enhance the skills of local ophthalmic professionals.
He enjoys all aspects of optometry especially contact lenses and therapeutics but most of all Darryl enjoys patient care and interacting with people.
Outside of optometry his interests include family and tramping.
