College of Optometrists 

Zahir-Ally Kanji, from Specsavers,  was chosen by the professional body of optics after showcasing his impressive presentation skills at a student road show event.

Zahir talked to under-graduates about his qualification and his year-long pre-registration training in the store.

Zahir says: ‘I am absolutely thrilled to have been selected to take part in the series of films which will hopefully inspire new and existing students. My training has been hard work but incredibly rewarding. It is amazing that I will be used as an example to the next generation of optometrists.’
