When College Member, John Campbell MCOptom, set off for work two years ago, he had no idea how the day would unfold. Faced with a member of the public who had just been the victim of a chemical attack, John describes the horrific injuries and the steps he took to try to save his sight.

In this podcast, Daniel talks to Neil, the victim of the chemical attack, John Campbell MCOptom who provided the emergency care, and Kieran Loft MCOptom who provides the hospital after-care.

Martin and Daniel bring you this month's podcast for National Eye Health Week (http://www.visionmatters.org.uk/), which promotes the importance of good eye health and the need for regular eye tests for all.

Please note: This podcast includes some graphic content describing the injuries.
