Scotlens appoints managing director

Tom Griffiths will work in partnership with Scott Brown

Specialist contact lens manufacturer Scotlens has appointed Tom Griffiths as managing director to partner with owner and optometrist Scott Brown.

Griffiths, who was a Sunday Times Top 100 Entrepreneur-Disruptor, approached Scotlens after his son started using orthokeratology lenses.

He shared that his son had progressive high myopia and wore thicker ophthalmic lenses, which meant he had to give up sports.

Griffiths said: ‘It broke my heart. ‘We accidentally found orthokeratology lenses and they transformed his life. He is now a confident, happy, active teen with stabilised myopia.

‘I’m delighted to join Scotlens, a second-generation family business with extremely high-quality products designed by innovative optometrists seeking to achieve the best results, first with Jack, Scott’s father, in the 1970s and now with Scott.’
