Mr CT Pillai, founder and Medical Director of AVC, found the experience of the judging process quite humbling.  “Some of the stories made me sad and some were amazing.  We looked at the procedures we could perform for people and the feeling is overwhelming knowing how much we can help change people’s lives.

At the practice we have been working with the charity ‘Help for Heroes’ and I meet people in wheelchairs and their caring partners who are thoroughly deserving. They can’t afford treatment and have been waiting for a miracle to happen.  That’s where we come in!

It’s just the same for the DME finalists – the excitement in their voices when I tell them what we can do for their eyesight.  We make it tailor made whether its laser, implants or lens exchange, and it makes their lives different. Particularly at time like this I know why I am in this profession.  My medical training and over 25 year of ophthalmic experience acquired in the UK, USA and India.  There is pleasure in giving to others - both mentally and emotionally.
