I drove past Fountain Gate shopping centre in Narre Warren on the day, in 2006, that Krispy Kreme doughnuts – the cult US sweet – opened in Melbourne. The hungry, hustling crowd was so large, it was clogging (like an artery after eating one of their glazed treats) the carpark. When an overseas brand launches here, we rush to it. But the reverse is also true; there are brilliant businesses with humble Melbourne origins that are exciting and delighting customers on the world stage.

MELBOURNE BRANDS THAT LEARNT HOW TO GO INTERNATIONAL

LOCAL GOES GLOBAL

That’s exactly how Anthony McDonough felt 20 years ago. But now, after ditching corporate life, coming out to his ex-wife and daughter and meeting the new love of his life, the 50-year-old can finally say, well, “I’ve done it.” Together with his new partner in life and business, ex-finance broker Chris Gletbasas, 38, McDonough founded Liquid Skin Care (Lqd), a Melbourne-made skincare brand that has been notching up significant successes in the multibillion-dollar global men’s grooming market. Launched online at the Sydney Mardi Gras in 2012, Lqd now boasts big-name stockists, including Harrods and Harvey Nichols in the UK, Bloomingdale’s in the US and, recently, enjoyed a stint as the official skincare sponsor of London Men’s Fashion Week. “Only a year ago, just before we launched into the US, we only had five people working in the business. We now have 55 working either full- or part-time,” says McDonough. There is much more to the story of their success, of course. The tale includes a near-death experience (Gletbasas battled meningitis septicaemia while in London), coming out to an extended Greek family on Christmas Day (Gletbasas again) and weeks of toiling in the laboratory perfecting recipes for lotions and potions designed to be non-irritating and restorative for skin (that’s McDonough, who trained in organic chemistry at university). But Lqd is not the only Melbourne brand enjoying overseas success. Take clothing giant, the Cotton On Group. (OK, they were founded in Geelong, but then again, we’re told pavlovas were invented in New Zealand.) At last count Cotton On had more than 1400 clothing stores across 18 countries. Melbourne designer Lucy Folk has kept overseas sales for her distinctive jewellery turning over with sightings on celebrities including Snoop Dogg, Beyonce and Elle

Fanning, not to mention receiving “standout” praise in The New York Times. And, in hospitality, Melbourne coffee roaster Nolan Hirte has successfully exported his Collingwood cafe Proud Mary to Portland, Oregon, last year with plans under way to open a second in Austin, Texas, soon. And then there’s competitive swimmer-turnedswimwear mogul Duncan McLean. He built his chlorine-resistant men’s label, Funky Trunks, from a Prahran son-and-mother operation in 2002 to one that employs 20, with 35 sales agents spread across the globe. Today about half of total sales are to Europe. Since 2008 when the company (known as Way Funky, which also comprises women’s label Funkita) turned over an annual $1 million, it has been growing at between 20 and 35 per cent per year, he says. “We’re sending six containers of swimwear to Europe every year now [compared to 2008 when] it would have been down to Australia Post sending a couple of boxes.”

t’s summer. You’re mooching around the pool, taking your annual break from working for The Man. Suddenly, an idea for starting your own business shimmers into focus. It’s exciting. A high-quality skincare range for men with sensitive skin. You imagine yourself shaking off the corporate shackles. Now you call the shots. But almost as quickly as the vision appears, it’s gone again. Everyday life takes over and you’re back at dreary old work-schmerk.

“There’s a real buzz and a different vibe you get from people in Melbourne.” - DUNCAN MCLEAN

What makes a local brand go global? McLean says big ideas are great but it’s important to have a manageable strategy and to be patient with the process because it takes time. He had no formal mentors along the way but spoke highly of government resources, such as Austrade’s Export Market Development Grant, which can provide emerging export companies up to $150,000 a year for eight years to help them break into global markets. “I know it’s a cliche but there’s a lot of creativity in Melbourne. The designers and the marketing and sales teams you can develop here [are great]. There’s a real buzz and a different vibe you get from people in Melbourne.”

B

ack at Lqd’s headquarters, McDonough argues a key to their overseas success was establishing a solid local base first. “Overseas is really expensive, so you really want to have your processes already developed locally, so you know what you’re doing and you have a solid base to build on.” The couple uses four content manufacturers in Melbourne, which is important for quality ingredients and monitoring. McDonough says a key moment came when the brand was first courted by Bloomingdale’s. Instead, they chose to launch through Australian outlet Sephora, which gave them a chance to find their feet locally before taking the global plunge. “It’s all the simple things – well, you think they’re simple until you start to do them – like logistics, planning, distribution and in-store training. You need all those systems put in place before you expand and the best place to do that is where you can be very much hands-on,” he says. As well as a business journey the couple has been on an emotional journey, too. Each has had to grapple with the process of coming out to their friends and family, later in life. McDonough, who has a 13-year-old daughter, Grace, with his ex-wife, Jane, says he is lucky because both families have been welcoming and supportive. By way of illustration, early in their relationship Gletbasas invited his new boyfriend, Jane and Grace to Christmas lunch with his extended family as a way to announce his coming out. “Picture My Big Fat Greek Wedding and you’ve got my family,” says Gletbasas. “We live in one street and my mum lives in the next street in South Yarra and my sister’s just around the corner.” It was a great success. Today, the pair has big plans for the future, including expansion into China (once that country stops testing cosmetics on animals, says McDonough) and a new push into hair-care products and supplements that promote wellbeing. As Gletbasas says: “2018 is so exciting for us”. ● WO R D S ● PE T E R BA R R E T T PI C T U R E ● CA R M E N Z A M M IT

Victor Liong’s “New-style Chinese” restaurant, Lee Ho Fook, has always had a strong wine and food-matching game. The two-page wine list has plenty of oldand new-world labels up to the challenge of negotiating – and enhancing – the hot and numbing flavours that punctuate Liong’s menu. But Lee Ho Fook’s drinks list also has a tight collection of food-friendly, thirstquenching cocktails that are worth checking out. One that warrants particular attention is the Escubac Highball that, with its herb, citrus and spice notes, is a natural friend and ally of many Asian flavours. Escubac is the ancestor of a style of liquor that originated in Tudor England and then seemed to disappear for a century or two. A couple of years ago, the distillers behind London-based Sweetdram decided to resurrect the drink, as an alternative to the tsunami of artisan gin. Escubac, a relative of gin, is flavoured with 14 botanicals and is excellent mixed with tonic. What is striking about Escubac is its distinct herbal quality tempered by a black pepper and distinct caraway savouriness, and a restrained sweetness. At Lee Ho Fook they team Escubac with Fever Tree ginger ale in a highball glass with lots of ice and a fresh lime garnish. Drink it by itself on a hot day but even happier if you team with the dishes at Lee Ho Fook. ●


MYKE BARTLETT MEETS AN ENDURING HOLLYWOOD STAR

J

essica Chastain is in a good place. To be exact, she’s in Sydney, in the eye of a publicity tornado for acclaimed new film Molly’s Game. The Hollywood actor has built a reputation on playing difficult women, but in person she is warm, attentive and almost radioactively charming. She’s living proof that success and superstardom needn’t turn you into a prat. This is just as well, as Chastain has a zerotolerance policy in that area. “Many times over the last few years I’ve thought, you know, there are so many talented people in this world who aren’t jerks,” she says. “No one should ever have to work with jerks.” Little wonder, perhaps, that disgraced studio mogul Harvey Weinstein once claimed he’d rather go three rounds with Muhammad Ali than get into the ring with Chastain. Today we’re talking about Molly Bloom, the fascinating real-life character at the heart of Molly’s Game. Forced to abandon Olympic ski-jumping after a horrific accident, Bloom moves to Los Angeles where she ends up running underground poker games for billionaires, rock stars and actors. Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin of West Wing fame, the film breathlessly covers similar territory to The Wolf of Wall Street, with one notable difference. Where Wolf and its protagonist celebrated ruthless bad behaviour, Bloom excels in her corrupt world without sacrificing her basic decency. Yes, she’s a criminal and drug addict, but Chastain has nothing but praise. “I think she’s incredible because she’s an authentic portrayal of a woman. Many times we see male protagonists in films who are f lawed and make mistakes, but they’re still heroes. Rarely are women afforded that opportunity.” As a jury member at last year’s Cannes, Chastain made headlines after criticising the depiction of women in the programmed films. “A lot of people will say the characters I play are a bit unlikeable. I take great offence to that.

For me, it’s wonderful to play a character who makes a lot of mistakes. She keeps falling down but she keeps getting back up.” When it comes to resilience, it isn’t difficult to draw a line between Molly Bloom to the actor playing her. Success as an actor came fast but late to Chastain. She started performing aged nine and trained at the prestigious Juilliard, but didn’t break through into film until her mid-30s. Since then she’s made 25 features, won Oscar nominations and a Golden Globe, and has established her own production company dedicated to improving diversity on Hollywood screens. Although, like Bloom, she spent a long stretch unemployed in LA, Chastain says she can’t imagine going down a similar wormhole. Bloom was happy to change everything to fit into her world.

But despite working in an industry built on makebelieve, Chastain has always had a talent for being herself. “I was getting advice on how to change my appearance – I should dye my hair blonde, all these things – and I just stuck with me.” ● MOLLY’S GAME \ in cinemas nationally

INDEPENDENT SCHOOL S GUIDE 2018

An educated decision GETTY IMAGES

I

n life, there are many choices parents make for their children from the time they are nothing but a “twinkle in the eye”, as my dear old grandfather used to say. One of the most important decisions, and one that can cause a huge amount of stress for parents, is which school to choose for their children. There are more than 9400 schools across Australia. Of these, more than 2700 are independent schools, each offering something unique for students’ academic and broader education. And with so much to consider for their future generations, it’s no wonder mums, dads and extended families can find themselves in a pickle when it comes to making this decision. Is religious or secular a better choice?

What about a larger school? Or should it be a smaller, single campus with fewer students? Is a single-sex school a better way to go than coeducational? Or is it better to have a mix of boys and girls? In this year’s edition of The Weekly Review’s

Independent Schools Guide, we’ll be looking to give parents and carers the information they need to make that decision a little easier. After all, schools shape students in myriad ways. Through schools, educators are able to introduce young minds to new ideas, knowledge and life skills. The school grounds are where students make lifelong friends and meet mentors who will influence them far beyond their formal years in education. And then there’s the discovery of what a student is most passionate about in their studies and lives. Whether that is something inside or outside the classroom – it can help them find their pathway to a happy life and a fulfilling career. And really, what more could a parent want for their child? ●

Making the right choice I

t goes without saying that making important choices in life can be difficult. When it comes to a child’s education, there is, unsurprisingly, always an added element of stress. So how do parents navigate the difficulties of making a decision about the future for their families? Here’s what the education experts advise:

1. WRITE A LIST

The Raising Children Network and Centre for Adolescent Health suggest parents write a list to include the types of things they’re looking for in a school before starting the search. “Before your school search starts, it could help to come up with a list of five things that are most important to you [and your child] in your choice of a school. “As you go through the school-selection process, think about this list – you might want to add to or revise it as you gather more information.” More at: raisingchildren.net.au 2. CONSIDER YOUR FINANCES AND WHERE

closer to home, others may consider boarding either interstate or (from) overseas as an option to ensure their child receives their education of choice.

6. REMEMBER, YOU’RE CHOOSING FOR YOUR 3. ATTEND SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

CHILD, NOT YOU

Going along to school events including open days gives parents the opportunity to ask questions and see how the school works. Being able to see first hand students and teachers in action will give a good sense of the school culture, the layout, programs, facilities and other information you may be looking for as a parent. You can also try school fetes or concerts to check out what’s on offer.

While you may love the idea of a certain school, including your own alma mater, think about whether this is the best option for your child. Will they fit into the culture at the school and does it offer the types of subjects that play to their strengths academically and otherwise?

4. TALK TO OTHER PARENTS

Parents can also get a good sense of a school, its culture, ethos and academic outcomes through word of mouth. Chatting to the parents of children already at a school can give an insight that you may not otherwise get. They can be honest about the pros and cons of the school and let you know why and how they made their choice.

YOU LIVE

Fees and other financial costs associated with a school will always impact on the final decision any parent makes. While some parents will be looking for a school

(and potential students) a look behind the scenes at what happens day to day.

5. RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH

School websites are a really handy way for parents to find out about the school. Most schools will also have a social media account which can give parents

7. KEEP CALM

Associate Professor Helen Proctor, an education researcher with the University of Sydney advises parents to make a calm decision: “There are so many pressures on contemporary parents that it sometimes seems as if anxiety is supposed to be the natural companion of parenting,” Proctor says. “Really most schools do a good job most of the time. Most teachers want to do the best for your child. Most children are keen to learn, despite how they sometimes act. “No school is perfect — but a school’s or a teacher’s imperfections sometimes become the challenges that provide the best learning experiences for young people.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY

“I care a lot about the world around me and aspire to be a politician or lawyer. I am passionate about these two career paths as I feel they offer voices for those who often aren’t heard in our society.” Johanna, Year 12

“A successful school is a community of inquiry in which divergent and deep thinking is fostered and students are encouraged to accept that a failure from taking a risk leads them one step closer to a success. Students in this culture not only aspire to be exceptional, they expect to be exceptional. Ivanhoe Girls’ is a remarkable school that enthusiastically embraces innovation, internationalism and new opportunities.” Dr Deborah Priest, Principal

Coeducation or single sex?

GETTY IMAGES

T

here has always been a lot of debate around what type of school is best for both the academic and wellbeing outcomes of young students. In Australia, parents are often weighing up whether it is better for their child to go to a singlesex school or to a coeducational school. It can be a difficult and complex choice to make. Not only because the findings of studies show single sex and co-educational schools are both good options for students academically – but also because parents are often considering how the choice will affect their maturing child emotionally and socially. Education researcher with The University of Sydney, Associate Professor Helen Proctor, says while many studies have been done and claims been made about the pros and cons of single sex and coeducation in Australia, there is no straightforward answer for parents making this choice. “Schools are such complex places and the gender make-up is one of many factors in schools,” she says. “A better question [for parents] to ask is how does the school manage its gender arrangements and what policies are in place to mitigate the downsides of either arrangement: coeducation or single sex?” Supporters of coeducation believe that being educated in a school with both genders reflects “real life”. That is, that once students reach university and/or the workforce, they will be learning and working with both men and women and being in a co-educational school better prepares students for this. While single-sex school supporters argue that classrooms are less distracting for young women and men, and each can be their authentic selves without playing into gender stereotypes. In other words, young women feel less intimidated in science or maths classes and young men will perform music or theatre in front of their classmates. While many studies suggest that single-sex schools may become a thing of the past (a recent study stated that they would be obsolete by 2035), they are still a very popular choice in Melbourne and other Australian capitals. All-boys’ school Whitefriars College in the Melbourne suburb of Donvale agrees that single-sex education allows boys to develop without gender stereotypes.

BEYOND STEREOTYPES

“A better question to ask is how does the school manage its gender arrangements.” ASSOCIATE A ATE PROFESSOR HELEN PROCTOR Principal Anthony Kirley says when making their choice, parents need to choose the school that best suits their child. “Young men have a particular need to be understood as males. The use of humour, rotational group work and kinaesthetic activities are essential for their growth,” Kirley says. “They are able to discuss topics of both refinement and sensitivity in a classroom without any view that it is a non-preferred way of thinking. “It is particularly important for boys who transition from primary school to have close male

friends who can support them in and out of the classroom,” he says. “Our teachers specifically know the needs of young men and how to form strong relationships with them. “The old saying in boys’ schools, ‘boys learn teachers before subjects’, may not be grammatically correct, but the sentiment is very accurate. “We have a strong focus on developing men of conscience and character who are unafraid to be gentle men within our society.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY

Religious or secular? FAITH, ETHICS AND VALUES ARE PART OF THE AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM

M

any Australian families are religious. In fact, 59.4 per cent of us claimed affiliation to a religion in the 2016 Census. So it’s no surprise that religion becomes part of the deliberation when it comes to parents choosing a school. Of all the independent (private) schools in Australia, 94 per cent have a religious affiliation, according to figures from The Independent Schools Council of Australia. That means, for some, the choice may not be simply between a religious and secular school, but between religious schools themselves. Associate Professor Helen Proctor, a researcher into

the history of education in Australia with The University of Sydney, says the research suggests some parents are choosing religiously affiliated schools for reasons other than religion. “That’s largely because there are few secular private schools in Australia,” Proctor says, “and if people are attracted by the religious affiliation of a school, it is often about what they perceive to be religious values or ethos rather than faith-based religiosity.” Parents are looking at what schools can offer, not only academically, but also in terms of social justice – how their children can learn to give back, raise funds and be of service to the community.

Xavier College in Kew in Melbourne’s inner south-east is a Jesuit Catholic School that includes strong religious studies and social justice programs as part of the curriculum. Students are encouraged to volunteer and raise funds, locally and internationally. Rector of the school, Father Chris Middleton, says the knowledge of religion is not only important in terms of shaping the lives and ethos of students, but is also “central to understanding where we come from [as humans].” “In our Western culture, so much of our law, human rights and social structures have their origin in the Judeo-Christian tradition,” Father Middleton says. “Similarly, our music, literature, art, drama, education and science were in many ways shaped by Christianity … religion remains a powerful force in our world, and to understand our world you need to understand the role and teachings of religions. “For example, an understanding of Islam is fundamental to understanding the Middle East, Christianity is important in understanding American politics or African societies, Hinduism is

important in understanding modern India, and so on.” While nearly a quarter of Australian students are educated in Catholic schools, there are still those who are taught in private, secular schools where religious studies are not part of the day to day. Ruyton Girls’ School is a non-denominational school, not too far from Xavier College. While religion is not part of the curriculum, the school has a strong set of values that it promotes. Principal Linda Douglas says the school encourages students to give back and raise their voices where they are needed. “Our Community Service and Sustainability Programs encourage our girls to take on new challenges, collaborate, take action, consider ethical implications, develop new skills and engage with issues of local and global importance,” Douglas says. “Through volunteer work, awareness raising and their own initiatives, they experience the value of raising their voices and taking action to ensure equity and justice for self and others.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY

Single or multi campus?

hen it comes to schools – size can matter – and many parents weigh up the benefits of sending their child to either a larger, multi-campus school or a smaller, singlecampus one. For parents, this decision can include what’s on offer in terms of the curriculum, the facilities of the school, how active the school community is and, of course, whether their child will be supported and learn in these different environments. Associate Professor Helen Proctor with the University of Sydney says there is no research to definitively help parents choose between multicampus or single-campus school. It comes down to which type of school parents believe their child will excel in. “There are just too many factors at play,” Proctor says. “Schools are big, complicated institutions.

DISCOVER EXCELLENCE

Some of them are the size of small towns. “And that’s before you even start to consider family and other factors. Anyone who has been to their school reunion should be able to understand this. “People even in the same class at a fairly homogenous school can have such different memories of their education a few years down the track and such different post-school lives.” Dean of Learning and Teaching at the University of Melbourne’s Graduate School of Education, Associate Professor Larissa Davies-McLean, says both types of schools have their positives and challenges. What matters most, she says, is the quality of teaching and learning within the school environment, whether it’s big or small. “There are different opportunities that children will have to experience in different learning

contexts – wonderful learning can happen in a range of contexts,” she says. Davies-McLean says it’s good to keep debate going on different types of schools, but remembering at the core of it all is supporting teachers to be able to give children a quality education. That’s certainly been the focus of schools in Melbourne like Haileybury and Shelford Girls’ Grammar. Haileybury has campuses in Melbourne, Darwin and China and also delivers the VCE in China, Timor Leste and The Philippines. Haileybury’s principal, Derek Scott, says one of the main benefits of a multi-campus school is the students’ connection across Melbourne (and the globe). “The school’s international operations provide additional benefits to its students [giving them] a number of opportunities to travel abroad and experience new cultures.” While it is a large school with many campuses, Haileybury still has a tight-knit alumni community

with around 16,000 members connected through clubs and events associated with the school. At Shelford Girls’ Grammar in Caulfield, the draw of a single-campus school is also its close community. Principal Polly Flanagan says their research shows that is only part of the appeal. “Our research tells us that parents choose Shelford because it is a small girls’ school with strong academic results. Parents like the fact that everyone is known and that they and their daughters can join a close-knit community. “A small school like Shelford will never be able to compete with the facilities of very large schools and we are quite open about that. For example, we don’t have a swimming pool or expansive sports stadium. With MSAC (Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre) so close, we don’t think that matters. “What does matter is valuing our best assets; our teachers, our students and their families and the quality relationships that they build and nurture.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY

n any urban area, there is an ideal location: close to the action, but far enough away that your home is peaceful and relaxing. This stylish apartment is close to Rathdowne Village and a few minutes’ walk to Carlton’s many and varied attractions. The immediate area is green and pretty with streetscapes of Victorian-era homes and interesting architecture. With its outdoor cafes, fashionable shops and delectable food outlets, Rathdowne Village is a picturesque neighbourhood with a European atmosphere. It’s the perfect place for brunch followed by a meander around the sophisticated clothing, homewares, bookshop and food stores. A little further afield are vibrant Lygon Street, the University of Melbourne, tranquil parks and gardens, and myriad other features that make urban living exciting and interesting. The CBD is three kilometres away. This apartment, in a boutique block of eight, is a striking addition to the Rathdowne streetscape. It is located at the front of the building and privacy is creatively achieved by a dramatic screen of webbing that allows light to flood in. At around 108 square metres, the ground-floor dwelling is generous in size with a well-designed floor plan and elegant appointments. Award-winning firm Nexus Design created the interior. The outdoors, too, is all around. At the rear, sliding doors open from the living area to an entertaining area. At the side, both bedrooms have doors to a terrace and there is a garden at the front. The living, dining and kitchen area, with pale, tiled floors and floor-to-ceiling, black-framed glazing to the terrace, is at the rear of the apartment. The kitchen, in on-trend shades of brown and white, is large and luxurious with matt stone bench tops, a waterfall island bench, Smeg appliances, storage drawers and softclosing cabinetry. Open shelves and a mirrored splashback add to the open, light atmosphere. Beside the kitchen is a study nook with a generous desk. Carpeted bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The main bedroom has an en suite and the family bathroom has a separate shower and bath. A Euro laundry is neatly tucked away. The apartment has a single secure car space and a storage cage and there is heating and cooling. ● BEVERLEY EVERLEY JOHANSON property@domain.com.au

There is something so pretty about a classic Victorian terrace behind a white picket fence. And when it has been renovated by an architect and fitted out for contemporary living, it is the perfect urban home. This quaint terrace is at the quiet end of an iconic street with some of Melbourne’s most creative shops and best restaurants and bars just a stroll away. The classic floorplan begins with two bedrooms off the arched hallway. One has timber floors and built-in wardrobes; the other is carpeted. These are followed by the black and white bathroom/ laundry, which has diamond-patterned tiling and a separate toilet. The kitchen, living and dining area follows and this opens to the side and has floor-to-ceiling doors and windows to the garden and parking area at the rear. The glossy kitchen combines timber and stainless steel with Bosch appliances. The house has hydronic heating, split-system cooling and an alarm system. ● BEVERLEY JOHANSON AGENT \ Nelson Alexander 9486 1800 PRICE \ $1.2 million – $1.3 million AUCTION \ February 17 at noon Scan the code Iconic address for an inner-city classic

A rare art deco abode in a row of Victorian terrace houses, 10 Sutton Street is a standout property in need of some TLC so it can truly shine. Its salmon-pink brick facade features curves and detailing in keeping with its heritage. One bedroom sits at the front of the house, and the other is at the very back (with en suite). In the middle, there’s a living area, kitchen and bathroom. A renovation would help bring out the intricate ceiling work. Another feature of the property is the wide courtyard which also has a shed and rear access. Rathdowne Street and the Curtain Square are just a mere stroll away. ● ERIN MUNRO

This New York loft-style apartment combines contemporary cool with touches of historic Melbourne courtesy of the late-19th century heritage-listed building.

Showcasing a split-level, open-plan design, the apartment features a large kitchen and dining area fitted out with Smeg appliances and timber floors.

Dr. Tony Stubbs Eye Surgeon Dr. Tony Stubbs, Eye Surgeon, says that just about anyone can have their vision restored and be rid of their glasses for most of the time. And this is without the use of laser surgery. Dr Stubbs formerly at the Royal Victorian Eye Hospital who has worked with the Fred Hollows eye department at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, says he began his career through the inspiration of his father, Dr Maxwell Stubbs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father was a pioneer in cataract implant surgery from 1963! He has now passed away but some of his patients still come in for a check-up. Not only is this inspirational, it also demonstrates that good surgery outlasts the surgeon,â&#x20AC;? Dr Stubbs says. A specialist who helps people who have been advised they are unsuitable for laser surgery, Dr Stubbs is also committed to demonstrating that age, corneal distortion or astigmatism are no barriers to eliminating the need for glasses. One of my best moments was treating a 12-year-old girl who was struggling at school because of poor vision due to congenital cataracts even with the use of thick glasses. Now 10 years later, she still has 20/20 vision without glasses. That inspires me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seeing my patientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bright smiles after surgery, as they stop squinting and can read without glasses, is definitely the best part of my job.â&#x20AC;? No referral is needed and no out-of-pocket expenses are incurred for an assessment to enable all options available to be considered.
