Michelle has been with us at the practice since Day 1!
She has been in optics for nearly 10 years. You may recognise Michelle from Tesco Opticians in Newbury where she and I worked together.
A lifelong resident of Newbury, when not working Michelle enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren. She enjoys knitting and walks with her energetic terrier.
Michelle is here to help you with your frame selection. Michelle is also able to help answer any of your questions about contact lenses use and teach you how to insert, remove and care for your lenses.
In addition to the expertise she has gained from working in optics, Michelle has also worn glasses and contacts for many years. She understands what issues patients may have with poorly fitted contacts and varifocals. She can work with you to solve those issues - even if you haven't gotten them from us. Michelle will tell you it is all about getting the measurements correct when you get fitted the first time so you are successful with glasses or contacts.
Need your specs adjusted? Having issues with your varifocals from another opticians?
Pop in and see Michelle or any of the rest of our team!
