The practice was opened in 1990 by the owners Gillian and Paul Sherratt.
Gillian qualified as an optometrist in 1978 after graduating from Bradford University with a
first class honours degree. Paul’s background is in photography and business.
“My professional interests are in science and problem-solving, and in people and communication.
So I wanted to set up a practice which offered a thorough eye examination with hi-tech equipment in a
comfortable and friendly environment, whilst having time during the patient visit to listen to their needs and provide solutions.”
Having worked for other independent practices in Cheshire and North Staffordshire, Gillian then spent three years at the Nantwich branch of Miller and Santhouse before deciding to start up her own practice in Crewe.
The practice has continued to develop, offering the very best in clinical care and product choice. One of the first practices in the country to provide digital retinal photography and OCT scans, we have extensive experience in ocular imaging.
With a wide selection of products from leading manufacturers of spectacles and contact lenses, the emphasis is always on quality and good service.
OUR PROMISE IS BUILT ON ALMOST 30 YEARS IN INDEPENDENT OPTICAL PRACTICE.
WE COMMIT TO:
- BE OPEN AND TRANSPARENT
- EMPLOY PROFESSIONAL, WELL – TRAINED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE PEOPLE
- CREATE AN ENJOYABLE, RELAXED ATMOSPHERE
- PROVIDE HONEST RECOMMENDATIONS
