Geraint Griffiths M.ASvP Dip SpV Dip ScV MSc MCOptom

Managing Director

Becoming a qualified Optometrist in 1980, Geraint has worked in optics ever since. He took over this practice from Mark Davis in April 2007 to develop his interest in Sport and Schoolvision and relate this to everyday practice. The practice was re-named Optical3 when Geraint took over – He says "It's a fulfilment of a dream to be working with such a great team. To serve the people of Anstey and the surrounding areas is a constant joy".

Geraint has spent many years looking into the cause of dyslexia (being dyslexic himself), particularly with children, and has found that the same problems that cause poor eye coordination also affect sporting performance. He has improved the lives and achievements of many children and sportspeople over the years.

Geraint's hobbies are theatre (having performed in many productions over the years) and in his slightly younger days, high jump (he held the Welsh High Jump Championship for 3 years) and the British masters record for 11 years.
