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 attempting various other sports including volleyball, tennis, sailing, trampolining, netball, shooting and even the odd bungee catapult!

Vikesh worked closely with Michelle many years ago in a private practice before she set up Park Vision, therefore when she began looking for another Optician who she could trust with our wonderful Park People, and who shared the same values of high-end, state of the art patient-lead eye care, Vikesh was her number one choice.
Vikesh’s passion for Optics started at just 15 years old, after completing his work experience at a local opticians. He achieved his dreams and graduated in Optometry at the Optometry & Vision Sciences School at Bradford University in 2004.
Vikesh has become a valued team member of Park Vision since 2019, using his wealth of experience to embrace our ever-evolving technology, ensuring he prioritises our Park People’s eye health and care - “I am interested in all aspects of Optometry – no day is ever the same, but by making a real difference to our patients fills me with tremendous pride”.
In his spare time Vikesh isn’t shy of keeping busy – enjoying DIY, gardening, keeping fit, travelling, and trying a variety of cuisines, but above all spending quality time with his wife, two daughters, family, and friends.
Chloe graduated from the University of Manchester in 2018 with a first-class degree in Optometry. She then completed her pre-registration year with Vision Express in a busy central London practice, and qualified in 2019. Since qualifying, Chloe has worked in a variety of practices as a mobile Optometrist and as an Optometrist Store Manager before moving solely within the independent sector of Optometry, particularly enjoying the extra time, care, and attention that is spent with each Patient – finding out about their individual visual needs and lens preferences.
Finding an Optometrist that values expert tailored advice and customer-centric care that Park Vision embodies is a non-negotiable – which is why Chloe is the perfect match for Park Vision, sharing genuine care and enthusiasm for all aspects of Optometry!
In spare time, Chloe enjoys fitness – spending time in the gym, cycling, running and horse riding. Her weekends involve dog walks, cooking new cuisines, meeting friends and crafting!
