After moving to the North East he has worked in a wide range of practices all over the region as a Locum optometrist. He has specialised in refractive surgery for the last 7 years which gave him the opportunity to work closely with surgeons managing a broad range of eye conditions.

Ciaran enjoys cycling, gardening, DIY, and spending time with his young family.

Our optical assistants are the two Christines and Eileen. All four are knowledgeable and friendly. They form a great team and I am very fortunate to work with them.
