Optician Awards 2018: Children’s CL Practice of the Year

This year’s Optician Awards recognised the efforts of Central Vision Opticians in north London in giving children the confidence to wear contact lenses. Zoe Wickens reports

Contact lenses for children remains an under-utilised market. Bhavin Shah, of Central Vision Opticians based in both Finchley and Kingsbury, London, wants to change this.

He completed his training at Manchester University and has since become an accredited behavioural optometrist and visual performance specialist, with over 22 years’ worth of experience. Shah uses this experience to specialise in children’s vision and visual performance, with a special clinic to assess eye movements and tracking difficulties that prevent successful reading and writing.

This was recognised at the Optician Awards in April, where the practice took home the award for Children’s Contact Lens Practice of the Year.
