Keith Tempany

Branch Director & Contact Lens Optician

Keith has specialised in contact lenses for the past 30 years. He is a Fellow of the BCLA and course lead for their Myopia Management Certificate, having retired from the Executive Council after 13 years on the board. He has an international reputation as a contact lens specialist, having lectured and written articles on contact lenses and dry eye both in the UK and abroad, and has worked with many of the contact lens manufacturers as a Key Opinion Leader and as Clinical Investigator on several scientific studies.

He was awarded Contact Lens Practitioner of the Year in the 2010 and 2014 National Optician Awards, which reflects his enthusiasm for his work with multifocal and specialist contact lenses such as those for keratoconus and irregular corneas. He has since been asked to sit on the judging panel of the awards.
