Birstall Health Eyecare Opticians
Welcome to Eyecare Matters…
Whether you need a routine sight test, fancy contact lenses or new spectacles, or simply need straight forward advice, visit me for all your eyecare needs.
I am an experienced optometrist who has been qualified for 20 years. After 10 years of working for a local independent optometrist, I am delighted to have the opportunity to own my own business on Dr Hall’s retirement. I am also a part time adviser to NHS England in Greater Manchester and College of Optometrists visiting research fellow at the University of Leeds.
As a newly qualified optometrist I worked with Scrivens opticians in Birmingham. Whilst doing my PhD, which was about the relationship between vision and driving accidents, I supervised final year optometry students as they learnt how to test eyes in the Aton University clinics. I had 2 years as Deputy Head optometrist at Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital before moving home to Leeds to become an adviser to Leeds Health Authority and optometrist at St James’ hospital. I joined Keith Bennett Optometrists in 2004.
I am married to Paul, we live in Halifax, and have two children. When I have spare time I like to go walking with friends, design and make jewelry, and dabble in watercolour and archery.
I love optometry, and believe that everyone deserves good eyecare, whatever their social or financial circumstances. I also understand that an eye test can be daunting to some so do my best to make the experience as easy and as enjoyable as possible.
I look forward to welcoming you to Eyecare Matters and hope you like what we have to offer. I am delighted to be one of your Birstall Health Eyecare Opticians.
