Mark Hales BSc (Hons) MCOptom


Mark graduated with an honours degree in Optometry from The University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology in 1990. Returning home to the North Devon area in 1995, he held a wide variety of positions within the optical profession - including being Optometric Services Manager for a large national optical group.


His experience in a range of local opticians has, since 2002, been honed in smaller independent practices, where he's been able to spend more time with each individual patient, in a more relaxed environment.


This access to independently-sourced eyewear has complemented Mark's particular interest in visual correction for sports; being a keen spectacle-wearing sportsman himself, he's always keen to keep abreast of - and supply - the latest in sports eyewear and contact lenses.


When not working, Mark takes his interest in sports to a competitive level, competing for the local running club both on and off-road; he also regularly enjoys cycling and the occasional surf. In spare moments he's also learning to play the piano and speak Spanish, with improving success!
