The Professionals













Leo Schwarz MOptom




Leo qualified as a dispensing optician in 1990 and as an optometrist in 2001.  He makes the 4th generation of Schwarz’s practicing at these premises.  Leo’s father David, an optometrist here for 59 years died in 2009.  In 2011 Leo acquired practices in Denbigh and Llanrwst in partnership with his colleague Richard Saunders, who he studied with at Bradford University.  These are also long established practices, and now trade under the partnership name of Saunders and Schwarz.  Richard and Leo have identical ideals in providing a local, professional service.  Leo is married, lives in Holywell and has four children.
