Claire is a registered Dispensing Optician specialising in all the technical aspects of spectacle lenses and frame design and fitting. She has worked mainly in independent opticians where, she believes, she is allowed the time to deliver the right solution for your eyewear needs. As a contact lens wearer with an interesting prescription, she understands the nuances of making your vision comfortable in glasses. She’s also pretty good at making putting in contacts, seem easy.

In her 11 years at Leyland Opticians, she has regularly attended courses to extend her knowledge of eyewear and lenses. Until recently (outside of work), she has enjoyed following a well known team that competes in the colour red. She also follows Formula 1 and has even travelled to Monza to watch it.

Debbie has spent most of her working life in customer care and loves dealing with the public on a daily basis. As a contact lens wearer, she gets great satisfaction assisting new wearers in learning how to handle and care for their lenses, so that they can also enjoy the benefits that she gets from wearing lenses. When not wearing her contact lenses she likes to wear something more…. avantgarde?
