About the speaker
Dr Neil Geddes BVM&S, Cert VOphthal. MRCVS
Neil qualified from the Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies in 1987 and spent the first three years of his career working in mixed practice in Cumbria. He then moved to Australia where he locumed for 18 months before returning to Fife in Scotland where he became a partner in a Small Animal Practice in 1994. He passed his RCVS Certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology in 1996 and started taking eye referrals from neighbouring practices the following year. Slowly over the years the caseload built to the point where, 15 years ago, he stopped doing first opinion work and instead spent all his time on Ophthalmology cases.
Now, Neil splits his time evenly between consulting and operating. Assisting Neil at St Clair Vets, there are two full-time Veterinary Ophthalmologists and a further two vets studying for their BSAVA Ophthalmology Certificate.
Neil has lectured for a number of providers including BSAVA, BVA and Improve CPD. He currently delivers the undergraduate Ophthalmology teaching at Glasgow University Vet School and for Vets Now on their ‘cutting edge’ courses. When not working, Neil can usually be found on a golf course or up a hill.
