Kate Hattersley BSc (Hons) MCOptom is a qualified Optometrist
(Ophthalmic Optician) who took over the practice in June 2004. Prior to running
the practice, Kate worked at Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital (UHCW), St James’s
Hospital in Leeds and taught at both Bradford University and Aston University. Kate
conducts full eye examinations
has recently invested in a state-of-the-art OCT scanner which enables imaging
beneath the retinal surface, thus allowing eye conditions to be identified at
an earlier and more treatable stage.
She also fits contact lenses and carries out the
after-care appointments which are vital to ensure the eyes remain healthy while
Kate is registered for the NHS Eye Care Service in
Coventry and provides treatment for dry eyes, red eyes and other conditions.
Helen Bamford FBDO and Chantelle Vardy-Jones FBDO are the qualified Dispensing Opticians. Their role is to select
suitable frames for you (meaning the frame fits and suits you in colour, shape/style, budget and is appropriate for your prescription); provide impartial advice on the most appropriate lenses for your prescription, budget and individual needs; advice on the need
for any coatings on the lenses; adjusting the frame on collection to ensure it
is comfortable to wear; advice on how the lenses work and how they should be
used eg. varifocals and bifocals; repairs to spectacles. We are happy to source
a frame if you have a particular design/colour in mind.
