A Dorchester Optometrist is celebrating 35 years in the business.
Alun Beaven is a partner at local opticians I J Brown - who have branches in Bridport, Swanage and Weymouth.
Alun says the biggest advance in technology since he's been doing the job in recent years has been a retinal camera.
It takes pictures of the back of your eye which allows eye diseases to be diagnosed early.
Alun told Wessex FM: " I can honestly say I have enjoyed my 35 years. I work in a profession that I love, I have been fortunate to have always had a very supportive and conscientious team working alongside me and most importantly a large number of very loyal patients, many of whom I am pleased to say are still with me today and have become long term friends."
