Ralph Thompson was born in Auckland and attended Auckland Boys Grammar school before graduating from Auckland University in 1988. He spent his early optometry years working in Melbourne before  moving to Reading Berkshire UK where he spent eighteen months. He has a special interest in contact lens fitting particularly those patients that are hesitant to give it a go due to nerves or perhaps a previous bad experience.

Ralph says: “I have had some particularly challenging cases where we have overcome patients fears and achieved fantastic results. Seeing patients grow in confidence once they have overcome the odds is just awesome, that’s what makes my day”
