“I would like Park Vision to be somewhere that you can come, knowing that you will be taken care of, be given excellent treatment and advice and leave looking and seeing fabulously well” Michelle
Eye expert Michelle Beach is the founder and optometrist director of Park Vision, a bespoke eye clinic in Nottingham’s Regent Street.  

Michelle graduated in Optometry from Cardiff University in 1993 and came to Nottingham to complete her training in the eye department in Queen’s Medical Centre. Michelle specialised in low vision aid, children’s clinics and corneal research. She was awarded research prizes in the UK and USA for her work studies in corneal graft surgery.

Michelle is passionate about sport, having competed in swimming and running to County standard and achieved England status in Women’s Basketball. Michelle holds her Advanced Padi in scuba diving is a competent skier and horsewoman and has managed to sprain; break and batter most body parts at attempts at various other sports including volley ball, tennis, trampolining, netball, shooting and even the odd bungee catapault!

This keen interest in sport led to her achieving, with distinction, her Sports Vision Diploma in 2008.

Michelle enjoys working with children, having twins of her own, and has a designated area for children at Park Vision. Her keen interest in children and drive to improve children’s learning in school led to her studying for her School Vision Diploma in 2010. She is still undergoing research in this field.

Park Vision is a fusion of Michelle’s passions in life: optometry, sport and fashion.

Michelle also follows the fashion trends of eyewear and is a firm believer that everyone should feel and look great in their glasses whatever their budget. She has attended eyewear exhibitions in Milan, trained with style consultants on colour and shape and been to London on training courses on frame style.

"I set up Park Vision because I felt there was a need for an eye clinic that could offer a tailor made bespoke service for any visual need. I wanted to be able to spend time with my patients from the moment they walk into the practice, listening to their needs, giving an excellent, thorough eye examination with top of the range equipment and then helping them choose the right eyewear for them; discussing styles, colours and lens options - not to pass them along a conveyer belt in an impersonal environment."
