Rupen Fatania was born and brought up in England. He came into the optics profession quite by accident as engineering was his chosen profession, when fate intervened and the rest is history. Having completed his F.B.D.O diploma and working as a dispensing optician, he went on to complete his degree at City University in London. Rupen worked at Boots Opticians following his post-qualification exams in 1998. He has worked at various practices including a period at City University as a clinic supervisor before settling down to Boots in Stanmore and Jon Sames Opticians in Romford as a resident optometrist. Rupen has a keen interest in contact lens fitting, children’s vision and diabetes.
In 2012 Rupen moved to Tasmania with his family for a change of pace and lifestyle. His interests are DIY, gardening, reading and history. He loves sports especially cricket, tennis and football. He is avid Liverpool fan!
