Guy Clare graduated from Liverpool University as a member of the September Club of 1994. Following graduation he moved directly into small animal practice, where his formative years were at Flookersbrook Veterinary Surgery, Hoole, Chester under the guidance of lifelong friend and mentor Chris Davies. Guy married Yvonne Rice (London 1990) in August 1997 and they bought a small animal practice in Bolton in 1999. Whilst at Queen’s Park Veterinary Surgery, Guy developed his interest in ophthalmology and started a referral business – Anivision. Anivision’s mission was to offer high quality ophthalmic work for the non-insured pet. Guy passed the RCVS Certificate in Ophthalmology at the first attempt (unlike Finals) in 2004, with the aid of his second mentor and lifelong friend Stuart Ellis. From there Guy re-established ophthalmology at Liverpool University. Whilst he was not part of the academic staff, he was recognised by the University in 2006 and was awarded ‘teacher’ status due to his commitment and enthusiasm for his role. In 2009, Guy emigrated with Yvonne and their 3 kids to the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. Guy now accepts referral cases out of North Coast Veterinary Specialists. Outside of work Guy is a professional accumulator of sporting qualifications and holds coaching accreditation in the following areas: rugby union; SAQ; triathlon; surf lifesaving; horse riding and weight lifting. He completed the Gold Coast Half Ironman (70.3km) Triathlon, in an acceptable 5h 34min in 2009. He likes to spend his non-working hours coaching at the local Pony Club in Winter and at Sunshine Beach Surf Club in the Summer. He is also currently re-training his off-the-track thoroughbred racehorse ‘Sam’ for a new career in eventing. He says that this has its challenges, but is still considerably easier than trying to get 3 kids out of their house, on time for School. Guy has a real passion for teaching ophthalmology and has presented nationally and internationally. He brings an innovative and amusing approach to his presentations, with the sole purpose of making his talks practical; enlightening and memorable.
