The team at Leighton Buzzard have been busy celebrating this month as resident optometrist Thomas Clark marked 10 years of service at the store.

A word from the store directors

Store directors Bhavash and Ekta Kotecha said: ‘Where has the time gone?! We opened in 2004 and, in those days, Ekta tested flat out five to six days per week as our only optometrist.

'After three years this was getting tiring and as Ekta is optometrist director at both Leighton Buzzard and Bletchley, we were definitely in need of a resident optometrist!

‘We interviewed a few optometrists for the position but Tom possessed all of the qualities we were looking for at the time – even though he also looked like a surfer – he was incredibly professional and caring!

‘Ten years on and Tom is still going strong. He is currently undertaking a course at the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and who knows, one day may be a Joint Venture Partner at Specsavers.’
