We're always on hand to help.
Tony has been a Qualified Dispensing Optician for over 20 years. He has a wealth of experience in pretty much every Optical environment. Prior to finding his true vocation, Tony was an engineer and also a keen sportsman so unsurprisingly, Sports vison and Industrial eyewear solutions are of particular interest to him. He is a keen Pompey fan, he also has a particular fondness of bad jokes – so, if you ask him for a joke don't say we didn't warn you!
Carol is the glue that binds our front of house team. Carol will probably be the first face to greet you when you enter the practice, and if you’ve been to us before, there is every chance that she will greet you by name. Carol brings a great deal of customer service experience to our team and she is our permanent ray of sunshine!
Nic has recently joined us from one of the ‘multiple’ optical companies. Nic brings a wealth of Optical experience and is keen to develop it in an environment where time is available to ensure complete customer satisfaction.

Tania is the person who dots the I's and crosses those T's to make sure that we all get what we have ordered, when we need it.

When not at work, Tania is a keen fitness fanatic – she even runs some classes in the evening!
