Iain Thompson is an ophthalmic optician and has been practicing for over 12 years, mainly in and around East and West Sussex.
For the past 10 years, Iain has enjoyed living in the sunny South Downs with his wife Helen and 3 young sons. When the westerly wind allows it, he’s quick to dust off his collection of kitesurfing boards and embrace the waves!
It was during his first degree in Psychology that Iain developed his interest in vision and perception. After graduating, he spent a few years teaching windsurfing and sailing, before returning to study and graduating with a 1st class honours degree in Optometry. At his graduation, he was also awarded the prize for best contact lens optician of the year.
Iain has worked for both high street multiple chain opticians and independent private practices, as well as also providing domiciliary eye care home visits. While working for Dollond and Aitchison, he was honoured with the title of ‘most trusted optician in the UK’, thanks to his patient reviews.
