Current Secretary - Michael Daybell
Graduating from City university in 1980 and qualifying after pre-reg at Moorfields eye hospital, I went on to work at the Norman Bier contact lens practice near Harley street and gained my DCLP in 1986. I moved to Sheffield in 1990 and joined contact lens consultants on Glossop Rd. In 1992, with my partner Lee Choo, we opened Daybell & Choo optometrists and Contact Lens Practitioners where I still practice.
I have experience as a college councillor, examiner, hospital optometrist and university clinical teacher.
I joined the LOC 20 yrs ago and have been chairperson and treasurer during which time my commitment to my profession motivated me to instigate the inception of the enhanced services programme of which I had specific involvement with PEARS, GRR and PRR.
I am a keen cyclist and cycle to work and to the peaks. Some years ago I completed a charity ride 700 miles across Cuba for the National Deaf Children’s Society. I am a member of a book club and an active supporter of Sheffield theatres. I take a keen interest in Table tennis in support of my Paralympian son, Kim, who is presently in full time training for Rio.
I am contactable through my practice or Secretary@sloc.org.uk
