What We Do

Our Services

Barnard Associates was started in 1979 by Professor Simon Barnard (now based in his London Practice – Barnard Levit Optometrists) and was created to provide high-quality patient care, specialising in eye health and paediatric eye care for the residents of Brighton and Hove.

The Practice has gone on to develop a distinction throughout Sussex and further afield, as a Practice for exceptional clinical eye care and is particularly known for its paediatric care especially with children with visual difficulties associated with Dyslexia and other learning difficulties.

Principal Optometrist / Practice Partner

Jerome Chin Aleong

BSc (Hons) MCOptom
Jerome Chin Aleong

    I graduated from City University and was fully qualified to practise in the UK by age 22.

    Soon after my qualifications, I returned to my birthplace, Trinidad, to work with a small optical company called Ferriera Optical. After a 6-year period, I returned to the UK, initially with a small independent multiple in Hampshire. I started at Barnard Optometrists in October 2000 and became a Practice Partner in February 2005.

    In 2011, I did my qualifying examinations to be able to practise in Australia. (Long story!).
