Laura Ashworth FBDO
Laura is a fully qualified Dispensing Optician (FBDO) which means she is skilled in
interpreting your prescription into a pair of spectacles that provide optimum visual performance. This involves listening to your lifestyle and vocational requirements to enable her to make suitable
recommendations on lens type, tints and coatings. Another essential element of dispensing is ensuring the frame is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Laura can help and advise you with frame
choice, as a poorly fitting frame can have a negative impact on lens performance. She also believes strongly in seeing you once your spectacles are ready so any necessary adjustments can be made. She
has perfected her dispensing skills with 20 years of experience and we feel the knowledge she has gained and her enthusiasm helps set her apart.
When not at work Laura loves walking, running, cycling and cooking. She also enjoys meeting people, so feel free to pop in and say hello, or book an appointment with her where she would be only too happy to discuss any queries you may have about spectacles.
