Joseph Dispensing Opticians Malta
We are thrilled to welcome Optometrist Joseph Grech. He will be examining eyes in both practises from April 2017. In 2000, Joseph Grech finished a two-year course in London at the City & Islington College, where he studied as a Dispensing Optician (FBDO). He is also a member in the Association of British Dispensing Opticians. He has been working in this field under supervision of qualified Optometrist and Ophthalmologists. They have always encouraged to pursue his studies because of the interest he showed and the knowledge he acquired. Dealing with the patient’s needs, from the young to the old, is not only a provision of service but also personally fulfilling as this profession is able to help people return to their daily activities whether they are leisure or work-related. Joseph has implemented what he learned and successfully opened an Optical Outlet in Gozo and Malta. In 2014, he started the BSc Hons (Optometry & Clinical Practice) at Aston University and in May 2016, he successfully completed his studies. Furthermore he is also a member of the European Academy of Optometry and Optics. This organisation provides a voice to help improve Optometry and Optics to develop the scientific knowledge and promote lifelong learning to Optometrist, Opticians and those involved in eye health care across Europe. He has done his pre-registration under the supervision of Dr Francis Agius MD,MSc Ophthalmology.FFPH. Joseph is fully aware of the arduous task ahead, but he is definitely prepared for the challenge.
