Andrew Gasson, DCLP, FCOptom, FAAO, ARPS (Contact lens specialist)

Andrew Gasson qualified in the 1960s and has specialised solely in contact lenses since about 1970.  He started his own practice in 1972, moving in 1984 to rooms here in De Walden Street where he continues to fit all types of contact lens.  These can be either simple disposables or highly complex and individually designed lenses.  Aftercare problems are a speciality and new patients however challenging are always welcome.  Andrew Gasson has lectured widely at both UK and international meetings, published numerous clinical papers and is the originator and co-author of The Contact Lens Manual.

Further information about Andrew Gasson.


David Randall, FCOptom. (Optometrist)

David Randall is a very experienced optometrist who for many years ran his own practice in North London where he was accredited to carry out diabetic retinal screening.  More recently, he has concentrated purely on spectacle eye examinations.  He has worked with Andrew Gasson for over ten years and is always happy to see difficult cases requiring complex spectacle prescriptions.


Judith Stechler, MCOptom, BSc (Optometrist)

Judith Steckler joined Andrew Gasson during 2008 to provide a wider range of clinical and optometric services.  Judith graduated at City University with a degree in optometry and has since worked both at Moorfields eye hospital and within an ophthalmological practice in London's Harley Street area.  She is therefore very experienced with keratoconus and other medical aspects of contact lens fitting.  Judith is also used to dispensing complex spectacle prescriptions and, incidentally, is fluent in French and Italian.


Sharon Biddlecombe (Practice manager and accounts)

Sharon has been in optics for over ten years.  She was originally employed in a suburban practice where she helped start up and run the contact lens department.  She then worked with a Harley Street laser clinic for twelve months before moving to De Walden Street in November 2001.  Sharon is therefore fully knowledgeable about the various  types of contact lenses now available, including complex designs such as bifocal and astigmatic.  In addition, she looks after all aspects of our practice accounts.


Kasia Wujek (Optical and dispensing assistant) 

Kasia has now been in optics in the UK for the last six years.  Before joining Andrew Gasson Contact Lenses she worked both in a contact lens research company conducting clinical trials and various independent high street optometric practices.  She is therefore fully experienced in all aspects of complex and high quality spectacle dispensing as well as having a comprehensive knowledge of contact lenses.
