An optometrist who missed a boy’s fatal brain condition is facing jail after being convicted of manslaughter by gross negligence. Vinnie Barker, eight, died of treatable hydrocephalus five months after Honey Rose conducted his eye test. Images taken in February 2012 at Boots the Opticians in Ipswich were abnormal and he should have been sent to hospital. Prosecutor Jonathan Rees QC said any competent optometrist would have spotted the symptoms. A jury at Ipswich crown court found Rose guilty and Mr Justice Smith warned all sentencing options are open.
