Ivar McLeish – Owner & Lead Optometrist

Ivar has owned the practice for 37 years and counting. He has always prided himself in being at the forefront of Optical Technology, and is still one of the few to have invested in an OCT machine, which he wouldn’t do without as its diagnostic tools have saved many patients sight and even their lives! He has a passion for eyecare and believes everyone should have their eyes checked, whether they wear glasses or not, regularly as the examination of the eyes can often lead to early detection of systemic disease.

Away from the practice he enjoys playing tennis and horse riding.


Helen joined the Practice in 2012 and is in charge of all the frame ordering. She loves helping and advising patients/clients in the selection of their new spectacles.

Outside of the practice she enjoys spending time with her family and walking her dog Zeus.


Jacquie is our newest member of staff, joining the Practice in 2019. She is our IT expert and is enjoying learning how to adjust spectacles to ensure they are an optimum fit and are comfortable for all our patients.

Outside of the practice she enjoys reading, gardening and spending time with her husband and daughter.
