Sam thrives to deliver great customer service, using modern techniques and suppliers hand picked by Leightons to ensure you get the best products and the best service. When Sam is not at work he enjoys keeping fit, reading and socialising with friends- but most importantly, spending time with his family, especially with his son who was born in October 2016.

Sarah was very attentive and spent a lot of time sorting out any problems I might have. Mark also spent time in discussing lenses and frames, helping me choose frames that suited my prescription and face. I am most grateful to both of them.
