Julie Mayouf

Dispensing Optician

"My main role nowadays is as Training & Support Coordinator for the optical assistants across other Leightons branches. However, I am still a committed dispensing optician. My passion is ensuring that everyone under my care gets the best possible attention and obtains the best and most comfortable solution to their particular visual needs. Outside work, my main focus is my three lovely, lively daughters!"

Sarah Haynes

Dispensing Optician

I've worked at Leightons for many, many years, first as a receptionist in Cobham and now as a Dispensing Optician at Epsom and Sutton. Over the years I've seen a lot of changes and worked with a lot of different people, many of whom I've stayed in touch with. In my spare time, I love trips to Brighton with my hubby. I also enjoy swimming, walking and anything and everything arty.

Suzanne Simpson

Optical Assistant

Suzanne has been part of Leightons Sutton for 21 years, including five years when it was Linwood Strong. She particularly enjoys helping customers and creating product displays. In her spare time, she enjoys exploring the Downs with her dog and spending time with her family.

Caroline Lenoir

Optical Assistant

"I started with Leightons in August 2012. I especially enjoy the contact lens aspects of my job, and I recently completed the Leightons Academy for Optical Assistants. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, entertaining, spending time with my family and going for walks with my dog."

Jacqueline Allen

Optical Assistant

"I've been working at Leightons since July 2015. I really enjoy helping our customers, and have even been complimented on my care with our older customers. Outside work, I enjoy listening to music and musical theatre (my favourite is Les Miserables)."

I have been attending Leightons for sixty years. During all of those years I have always received exemplary treatment. From the moment of walking in the door I am always greeted with smiling and welcoming faces. The staff have naturally changed over the years, but never the superb treatment and service. The opticians themselves are friendly and reassuring and always ensure that one understands what they are telling us and they invite questions if there are any. I recently attended for a check-up and all of the above appertained. Ths branch of Leightons are to be congratulated and I do thank them all.
