Neil James moved to North Lincolnshire as a teenager and took up roots, continuing to live locally today with his family. Neil’s passion for optics began aged 17 as an ophthalmic lab technician. Over the years he has worked in various roles within the optical industry from the lab to the shop floor, making & dispensing glasses. Also running and managing opticians.

Both are very passionate about eyecare & eyewear and are excited to be opening a new practice together.
