Derek Armour

Optical Dispenser Qualified

Derek joined the practice in 2007, being fully qualified and with over 40 years of experience in all areas of optical dispensing. He brings a broad range of knowledge and experience to the practice. His mission is to make sure patients receive the best advice in regard to lens and frame selection, so that they have a well fitting, stylish and functional pair of spectacles that meets their needs. Derek enjoys interacting and getting to know our patients, especially the children, who sometimes can be apprehensive about having to wear glasses. He also likes the challenge of difficult frame repairs and fitting more complex prescriptions having begun his career in an era when those tasks where a much more a hands on approach.

Outside of work Derek’s interests include music, bike riding, sailing and golf. He also enjoys time spent with his grandchildren & being involved in his local church.
