Who are we?
Born in Lincoln Annabelle’s ambition was to open her own practice for the local community to provide them with the personal, professional and consistent eye care they deserve.
Being a mother she appreciates how intimidating an optician’s can be, especially for children. Her practice delivers the high standards you would expect from an independent practice whilst still being welcoming for the younger family members. Annabelle is happy to test children from two and a half years old. She is also happy to test adults and children with SEN+D.
Annabelle has partaken further training and is Practitioner with Specialist Interest accredited. She provides Lincolnshire with a GOS 18 Triage and Treat Service for minor eye conditions, accepting referrals from other opticians and medical professionals for patients who need further investigation. Annabelle also provides post operative care for Cataract patients on behalf of SpaMedica. The medical side of optometry is Annabelle’s passion and she continually keeps up to date with advances in eye health care and eye diseases.
Annabelle has served Vision Aid Overseas twice. Vision Aid Overseas is an international charity dedicated to transforming access to eyecare services in developing countries. The first time Annabelle travelled to Ghana to provide eye tests to remote communities. Her second trip was to Sierra Leone sharing her time teaching in hospitals as well as providing eye tests to the remote communities. This is something she hopes to be able to do again in the future.
If anyone wishes to donate old spectacles to the charity via Annabelle please bring them into the practice.
