Carl - or Contact Lens Carl as he is also known - is Vision Direct’s Specialist Contact Lens Consultant. With 13 years experience in optics, Carl started out as a part time optical assistant. While working 5 days a week, he studied at Bradford college and gained a FdSc in Ophthalmic Dispensing in 2015. Following graduation, Carl worked in a management position at Stockport before focussing his passion on the clinical aspect of optics.
Carl studied for his speciality in contact lenses at ABDO College and graduated in 2019. He spent 3 years working in a very busy contact lens practice, looking after a database of over 2000 patients. In 2020, he opened a dry eye clinic within the practice to give more time to those who struggled with the disease, but sadly, this was curtailed by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
At Vision Direct, Carl brings his wealth of contact lens knowledge and experience to the customer service team to further ensure that customers feel that they are receiving the same personalised treatment that they would have on the highstreet.
