Luke Allen qualified in 2015 and now works in full-time independent practice at Rawlings Opticians.

In this vlog he discusses the variety of clinical areas that he practises in on a day-to-day basis; from sight tests and contact lens fits, to dry eye assessments and OCT imaging, he has a hand in them all.

“I get to do so many different things and get to see such interesting patients,” he says when sharing what he most likes about working in independent practice.
