Liny Abraham


Liny joined us in 2014 after moving back to Dorset. She qualified as an optometrist in 2005 and has over 11 years' experience in both the multiple and independent sectors. Liny believes that working for Leightons enables her to have more time with customers, ensuring that they receive the best care and advice possible.

David Heptinstall

Dispensing Optician

David joined Leightons as a trainee in the old Christchurch branch 33 years ago. After qualifying, he stayed there for several years before embarking on Relief Manager duties, allowing him to travel to virtually all the Leightons branches! Once he had tired of all the driving, David returned to Poole as a full time dispensing optician. In his spare time he enjoys theatre, DIY and grandparent duties.

Claire Kitching

Optical Assistant

Claire has worked at Leightons for over six years. She is highly organised and loves a challenge, especially when it comes to window and plinth displays!

June Graham

Optical Assistant

June is the newest member of the team at Poole, so is currently enjoying learning all the different aspects of her role. June has worked for large corporate companies in the past, and joining a smaller, established team has been a new, interesting and, so far, great experience!

Very friendly and helpful every time I visit. Really helpful when I needed to be seen without an appointment.
