Personal profile

Annette trained in London and qualified as a Dispensing Optician in 1981.

During her career she has gained extensive experience within both multiple and independent opticians and has held several practice management positions. She currently practices as a Dispensing manager for an independent optician group in Norfolk.  Annette is also an examiner for the Association of British Dispensing Opticians.

After many years experience in high street practices, Annette chose to specialise in Low Vision Assessment. An assessment is appropriate when spectacles cannot give visual improvement to a level that the patient considers satisfactory for their needs. Annette offers consultations to patients whose difficulties with their visual condition require an understanding and sympathetic approach. By providing suitable low vision aids she can assist patients to make the most of the vision they still have.
