Tim Barrett

Branch Owner & Contact Lens Optician

Tim began his optical career in 1978 at Leightons Woodley, before becoming Assistant Manager at Reading then Branch Manager at Thatcham. Tim decided to broaden his optical skills by completing the Association of British Dispensing Opticians’ Contact Lens Diploma, which he passed with Honours.

When the opportunity arose to open his own business, he became the first Leightons franchisee and opened the Wokingham practice in 1996. It has been at the heart of the town centre ever since.

In his spare time, Tim is a keen mountain biker.
