Our optician was attracted to optometry after learning her father had glaucoma
Mrs Seema Shah – our owner and optician – was always interested in medicine. However, when she was 14 she was given the news that her father had glaucoma (a condition of increased pressure within the eyeball, causing gradual loss of sight) and it was then that she decided on a career in optometry.
Ever since studying hard and obtaining her qualification to become an optometrist in 2000, Seema has dedicated herself to providing unrivalled eye care to the inhabitants of Pinner and the surrounding areas.
“Early on in my career I worked for a corporate company where I realised that the patients were treated as mere numbers, not individuals. I therefore decided that I would open my own practice; where my patients were my primary concern and would receive all the time and attention they need.”
Seema – Optometrist
Over the years Seema has surrounded herself with a friendly, professional team who are each passionate about the care their patients receive. Today, when you visit our practice you can expect a warm welcome from Hazel, our receptionist who has been with us for over 30 years now. You will then have your eyes tested by Seema, before speaking with Ricky or Dharmika – both of whom have over 8 years experience – should you require eyewear.
If you ever have a query or concern about your eye health, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We have been a trusted optometry practice for over 30 years now and are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
