Sarah qualified in Optometry from the prestigious Cardiff University School of Optometry in 2015. Whilst spending her first years as an optometrist in the multiple sector her preference was to work in an independent practice and she joined us in November 2018.

Pamela McLaughlin

Pamela’s background was initially in administration, but she moved into the independent optical world over 15 years ago and has found great success here. Drawing on her earlier experience, she helps ensure the practice runs smoothly, particularly with regard to navigating NHS procedures, but is excellent at assisting patients with dispensing and contact lens queries, adjustments and repairs.
