We are honoured to have won several prestigious awards over the last few years. We are the only Opticians to have been named ‘Practice of the Year’ by both the Association of Optical Practitioners and the Optician Magazine.  

Lesley Oglethorpe is the only Dispensing Optician to have won the coveted title of Dispensing Optician from both the Association Of Optical Practitioners and the Optician Magazine.
