Harsha Shah
Optometrist and Practice Owner

I have been practicing as an Optometrist for over 23 years having qualified in Optometry from The University of Manchester. Since then I have worked in a variety of Multiple and Independent practices. My experience and qualifications extend to complex Prescriptions, Complex contact lens fitting, post cataract eye care, direct referrals to the hospital eye service and managing a wide variety of eye conditions.

I am a member of the College of Optometrists, The Association of Optometrists and the General Optical Council.

You will notice when you visit us that I am still as passionate about Optometry and eye care as I was 20 years ago as I believe that one’s vision and sight is a very precious gift.

When I am not working I love spending time with my family and travelling to different destinations.

I look forward to welcoming you at Weston Opticians.


Colin Krikler
Dispensing manager

I have worked in optics for over 23 years. I started as a lab technician and quickly moved on to dispensing spectacle frames and lenses.

I spent the early part of my career with independent opticians before taking on a managerial role at a practice in Victoria to great success.

I have spent 10 years as a locum dispenser, experiencing a wide range of practices. This enabled me the flexibility to work and fulfill my passion for extensive travel. I am now married and have two beautiful young children.

I joined Weston Opticians in Watford in February 2014 and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of such a great team. I aim to welcome you into our practice, and offer you the best advise when choosing your frames and lenses. Our products are second to none and I am delighted to be working with brands that I truly believe in.

I am able to take on a wide range of repairs in store, that most would shy away from.

Having experienced a wide range of practices throughout the years, I believe more than ever in the value of the independent optician.

Come and give us a go. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.


Shauna Francis
Optical assistant

My Journey in Optics began over 24 years ago. I have worked in large stores within multinational companies, however since coming to Weston Opticians over three years ago I am proud to be part of an Independent Opticians where we aim to provide the highest quality of eye care. Many years of experience allows me to dispense all types of spectacles and I ensure the smooth running of the practice.

I particularly enjoy interacting with our customers and at Westons I have the time to build a relationship with you all, understand your visual needs and deliver spectacles which are specific to your requirements.
