About Us

Harsh Shah – Optometrist/Owner

Harsh is our Senior Optometrist. Qualified for over 30 years, he takes a keen interest in children’s eyesight and addressing learning difficulties, as well as specialist contact lens fittings, such as Eyedream or Keratoconus. In his spare time, Harsh loves running and gardening. He has completed several half marathons and through these has raised funds in support of various charities!

One of his biggest achievements was trekking up Kilimanjaro a few years ago, and being the ambitious and determined individual he is, Harsh has now got his sights set on the Himalayas!

You’ll often spot Harsh wearing his own glasses around the practice now – at last, he has succumbed to the “age thing”!
