In the year 1951, Mr Mohamed Muslim Chatoo FBDO was born. After pursuing a career in Optics, he progressed to become the director of our company and the beloved Dispensing Optician of Belgravia. I asked him 4 questions, to try get to know him a little more so you have another reason to come to us, your friendly independent, London Optician.
- 1. How did you get your start as an Optician?
Way back, when I was nine years old (1960), my Uncle came from England and established an Optical practise with a Pharmacy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. I joined as part of the technical staff with my other Uncle who was already a trained technician in London.
- 2. What is your favourite thing to eat?
This is a difficult one. Very tough to choose when it comes to my wife’s (Kausher Chatoo) cooking, she is very good. But if I had to choose, it would be Fish, with Daal and Rice.
- 3. Who’s your biggest inspiration and why?
My dad is my biggest inspiration because he always encouraged me.
- 4. What is your favourite quote?
Your eyes are precious, give them the best – Unknown person in America
So, there you have it. 4 questions that will hopefully let you know your local Optician, Mr Chatoo, a little better.
