specialist paediatric optometrist working in the Middle East. Keith says "It's very
important that I carry out this trip on an annual basis, to give children with
special needs the opportunity to be independent at home and at school. This type of

this regeneration project is to also discuss the possibility of setting up training
facilities for opticians in the country.
