About Daniel


Daniel is pleased to be able to offer eye examinations and other eye care services at his home in Newmarket.  This enables you to benefit from the time and attention to detail necessary for the highest quality eye care.  Daniel has carefully considered how best to marry traditional aspects of practice with the latest technology, for a friendly and clinically focused approach to eye health.  Daniel is proud that this is one of the very few practices in the country to focus exclusively on ocular health; he does not supply spectacles.  This gives his patients the freedom to choose their glasses or contact lenses from any dispensing practice, be it a London boutique, online or locally.
