Background Information 
Professional profile:
Paediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus

Mr Arvind Chandna is a Consultant Paediatric Ophthalmologist at Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Liverpool and Royal Liverpool University Hospital. He is passionate about his work and enjoys what he does.

Arvind qualified from Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi and came to UK in 1979 to specialise in ophthalmology.

His training took him through Charing Cross Hospital, London; Central Middlesex Hospital, London (Neurosurgery); Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, Bristol Eye Hospital, Bristol University (M.D.) and finally to Miami (Bascom Palmer Eye Institute) and San Francisco (Smith Kettlewell Eye Research Institute) for fellowship training (9 months) in paediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus.

In 1992 he was appointed to Alder Hey Children's Hospital to lead the development of new and unique paediatric eye services in the hospital and the community. From a small dedicated unit the paediatric ophthalmology department has grown into a well established comprehensive service with significant components of research and teaching and training of overseas fellows. He is an active member of the College and has held positions of Clinical Lead, College Tutor (reappointed) and has served on committees for the College and the NHS.

He is an Affiliate Senior Vision Scientist at San Francisco and Honorary Professor at King Edward Medical University Lahore.

Arvind has been actively involved in volunteer work since 1992 and opportunities to help in the fight against childhood blindness have taken him to Sudan, Tanzania, Ghana, China, Myanmar and India.

Arvind is keen on teaching and training and has held workshops and courses in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, India and Pakistan.

Arvind is Founder and Chair of Vision 4 Children (The Littler Trust), an international charity set up in January 2008 to help the fight against childhood blindness. Working with a dedicated team of Trustees, V4C hopes to contribute to a parent support group, carry out high quality research in treatable blinding conditions in children and teach and train paediatric ophthalmology eye care teams.
