Mrs Bejal Bhudia BSc (Hons) MCOPTOM
Bejal graduated from Cardiff University in 2002 and completed her professional qualifying at The Institute of Optometry and in a community practice in Dorking and Milton Keynes. She later gained a principal optometrist role for a highly competitive and fast paced clinical establishment in Sloane Square, London. She has developed her bubbly approach and communication skills serving the aristocratic community in the Chelsea and Kensington area, liaising with top professionals in many fields. She has a particular interest in diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease.
Gina has worked in the optical field for over 10 years and together with Paz since 2010. She has accrued a solid foundation in the mechanics of keeping the practice organised and efficient so every patient’s journey is peaceful yet productive. Her calm and patient demeanour is much appreciated during the pre-examination period and of course in the expertise of spectacle frame dispensing. Gina originally stems from an art and graphic background and plays an integral role in the ambience and face of our practice … Did we mention she has a particular love for our three Mississippi turtles. Come and meet them (and Gina!)
Ana has recently joined us full time as an optical assistant and has over 10 years experience in optics, starting in her home country of Romania and here in the UK for the last 7 years. Ana enjoys all aspects of the business but particulary working with our patients, taking them through their pre-screening journey and helping to pick the perfect frame and adjusting them to a comfy fit on collection. Her warm, friendly approach and her ready sense of humour makes her a welcome addition to our close knit team. Her recipe for Romanian meatball soup is not to be ignored either!
Iqra, our newest member, has come fresh from the Sunglasses department at John Lewis and is now bringing some sunshine onto Hatch End Eyecare with her knowledge and enthusiasm for everything tinted! It doesn’t stop there though, she’s enjoying learning many aspects of optics and meeting and greeting all our lovely patients. Iqra is rapidly becoming our chief audiology assistant, screening patients to assess whether they may need to attend our new audiology clinic. Many people have asked whether we have audiology here, we thought it would be a good idea! The screening is completely free and if it seems you have a hearing problem, there’s no charge for the appointment with the audiologist either.
Iqra is a real whiz with social media too, so look out for some interesting posts from us! #prlife #facebookqueen #opticalnuisance #sunniesgirl #styleguru #icky
