Jay joined Leightons Putney in 2007 and, with Renee, has built up the business with excellent customer service. Jay continues to explore ways to make the experience more interactive for customers, and particularly enjoys using the OCT scanner to offer a more advanced insight into eye health.

It had been some years since my  previous eye test, I attended my appointment on Saturday with some trepidation, anxious to discover the cause of the progressive and significant sight loss I have experienced over the last few months. I was seen by Gemma, who took me through a range of eye tests with respectful, sympathetic efficiency and good humour. Gemma talked me through what she was doing at each stage of the tests and when the reason for my sight loss became apparent (cataract) clearly explained my options for treatment. Any questions I had were answered and at no point during my appointment did I feel rushed.  Gemma then introduced me to Chintu.  He was delightful and I feel confident that he will be able to find the very best package of lenses and frame to suit my needs. Gemma and Chintu are charming individuals and a real asset to the Putney store.
