Welcome to the fourth and final instalment in our series of blogs where you will get to know our co-founders. Read more about the beginnings of Chakshu London and how we are different from the rest.
Nund is a qualified optometrist from London and loves being active!
Why did you start Chakshu London?
One of the main reasons we started Chakshu London was to be able to provide the best quality eyewear made with the best materials we could source in an ethical and sustainable process. Having taken part in an eye camp in rural India made me realise the importance of regular check ups and how sometimes we can take our easy access to eyecare for granted. Working for the usual high street chains I found that they could only offer a limited scope of examination and treatment, which fueled my endeavour to be able to offer something more and to raise the standard to care.
What are your visions for the future?
In the last few years we have seen technology change the landscape of optometry on a global scale. I want to remain at the cutting edge of this transformation being able to utilize the most up to date methods, techniques and thinking to provide the best service. I believe that technology will only increase our ability to screen and diagnose efficiently and accurately.
What do you do in your spare time?
I really enjoying playing sports, being active and having a laugh. I am always looking to develop myself and learn new things. Currently I am trying to sharpen my mind and increase my focus by playing chess.
What has been the best bit of your journey so far?
Building a valuable network, I have connected with so many wonderful amazing people who have helped me so far. I look forward to being able to share some of the new ideas we have in-store for you, but for now check out some our latest designs here.
