[Partner Specialist IP Therapeutic Optometrists]

After years of hard work and strenuous studying, we, as brothers, opened our practice in 2012. Our extensive medical knowledge combined with an ongoing curiosity to learn about the latest trends define our success in the field. Both Manish and Chirag have been a vital part of the COVID Ophthalmology Service with Maidstone Hospital serving the Kent and Medway area, working on-call and seeing patients from A&E, directly from consultants, via NHS 111, from GPs and self-referrals.

Chirag has a wealth of experience and was also a Specialist Optometrist at the world-leading Moorfields Eye Hospital in City Road, London. He works in A&E, Urgent Care, Glaucoma and External Disease & Cornea clinics. He holds the most advanced clinical qualifications allowing him to provide essential and urgent eye care.

Manish has delivered excellent patient care through community ophthalmology services for many years and continues to provide high quality optometry and ophthalmology services in the Maidstone area having undergone training at Maidstone Hospital and holding the most advanced clinical qualifications.

Our practice is the only one of its kind in Maidstone, Kent where we are the only Therapeutic Optometrists. This means we have the ability to treat you much like your GP or hospital eye doctor by way of issuing FP10 medical prescriptions.

We have both grown up in the area and now many of our neighbours and people who have seen up grow up are our patients. We have a tremendous sense of community and will always do the right thing for each and every one of our patients without compromise.

Come and experience the finest eye care in the safest hands.
