Helena Jenkins-Hewes


Helena is a full time optometrist with Leightons. She specialises in contact lenses and enjoys improving diagnostic technique at our practice. Outside work, Helena enjoys baking, craftwork and stitching.

Josie Wood


Josie joined Leightons in 1988 and has worked in the Farnham, Alton and Winchester branches. She now works primarily at Winchester and has a very loyal following of customers who appreciate her time and care.

Elise Kyle


When Elise first joined Leightons Winchester, she quickly built up a large following of very happy patients who love her calm, confident style and depth of contact lens knowledge. She left to have her daughter and we are thrilled to now have her back with us three days a week.

Natasha Markwick

Dispensing Optician

Natasha first joined Leightons Winchester as an Optical Assistant, but soon realised she wanted to train as a dispensing optician. After 3 years' hard work, she qualified in 2015 and is now an integral part of the Leightons team. She's never afraid to say if she thinks a particular frame doesn't quite suit you, and is extremely knowledgeable about modern lens technology.

Lauren Easter

Optical Assistant

Lauren first joined Leightons in 2013 to cover maternity leave in our Southampton branch, then began working in Winchester permanently after that. Being a mere "youngster", the team find her thoughts invaluable when it comes to frame selection.

Rachael Wall

Optical Assistant

Rachael has worked for Leighton’s since February 2015, dividing her time between the Winchester and Chandlers Ford branches. Recently, she has completed her level two diploma in retail optics. When not working, Rachael enjoys spending time with her three grandchildren.

Over two recent appointments, first for an annual check-up for reading glasses and for anti-glare varifocal driving glasses. I had professional, friendly and prompt service and advice. Then, for hearing aid advice, after a thorough check of the right and left ear, all was well with the right hand aid for the coming months. First class, over all.
