Jo O'Neill

Branch Manager & Dispensing Optician

"I have been a Dispensing Optician for 30 years at Norville Opticians before joining Leightons this year when the Cirencester branches joined forces. I enjoy working for an Independent Optician as I feel we have more time to spend with our patients to be able to offer the best solution for all their optical needs. In my spare time I enjoy going to concerts, reading and walking my Dachshund/Jack Russell cross Milo."

Charlotte Barnes

Optometrist

"I started with Leightons in October 2014, and thoroughly enjoy my job. In Cirencester, the team and customers have been so friendly and welcoming. I particularly value the investment in OCT in our Ultimate Eye Exam, as it means we can offer our customers very latest and best eye care services. In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, running and walking my Bassett Hound, Wilson." Charlotte is currently on maternity leave.

Amanda Lee

Amanda Lee

Optical Hearing Assistant

"I first starting working at the Cirencester store on 5th April 1990, back when it was run by Peter Hicks. I continued when Leightons took over in 1995, and the rest, as they say, is history. We have a lovely relationship with our customers as many have been coming to us for a long time. It doesn't take us long to get to know our new customers too. I love people and am keen to make their every visit an enjoyable and memorable one. My outside interests are Salsa and Latin line dancing and visiting historical places. I also spend my day off helping Class 5 at Powell's Primary School."

Bonnie Adams

Optical Hearing Assistant

"Leightons always seems to have been part of my life - I came here as a customer from a young age and I even did my work experience here in 1994 under the watchful eye of Amanda Lee! I continued as a regular customer, and in May 2002 started working for Leightons when Amanda convinced me to join. I enjoy spending my spare time with my full-of-life Springer Spaniels, and sometimes even my husband."

Optical Hearing Assistant

"I worked with Norville Optician's for 2 years before joining Leightons in April 2019 as a part-time OHA. I enjoy welcoming people to the branch and putting them at ease, ensuring that their visit is an enjoyable one. As we have not had a television for over 20 years, I spend any spare time doing gardening, reading, jigsaw puzzles, crosswords and looking after my grand dog Ted!"
