An Introduction to the staff members at the Elder Street Branch

Scott Brown, Optometrist | Shareholder

Scott Brown, Optometrist | Shareholder

After working for four years as a Scuba Diving Instructor I started working in the business in 1996 on a part time basis whilst studying at Glasgow Caledonian University where I qualified first as a Dispensing Optician and then as an Optometrist.

My main interest within optometry is contact lenses and I am involved in fitting and training other optometrists in the use of specialist contact lenses, such as Nocturnalens. I also fit contact lenses on behalf of the NHS managing patients with keratoconus, aphakes and prosthetic contact lenses. I enjoy the challenge of giving the best optical correction for people with specialist needs.

Graduate of Glasgow Caledonian University - BSc (Hons) in Optometry 2004.
