Indie is a qualified dispensing optician and optometrist with 30 years’ experience with the optical industry. Shortly after qualifying as an optometrist, he joined Visioncare Research as a Research Optometrist in the field of contact lenses. Moving into private practice in 1999 he joined Leightons, then teamed up with Sara to open the current St Albans franchise in 2001.
Indie’s interest in contact lenses has resulted in him being awarded a fellowship with the British Contact Lens Association. His area of speciality is myopia control and multifocal contact lenses. He works closely with manufacturers and frequently participates in clinical trials. He also presents regularly to eyecare practitioners both in the UK and internationally.
Indie believes that technology is the cornerstone of a good eye examination and, with this philosophy, he is constantly investing in the latest consulting room technology to continue to offer leading eyecare at Leightons.
Outside work, Indie enjoys walking and both dinghy and yacht sailing.
