Tina Saunders

Tina is very experienced having worked in Optics for over 16 years. Her passion and interest in Optics started very young when at 6 years old she started wearing glasses. When an opportunity arose to train as an Optical advisor at a local practice, Tina jumped at the chance as she knew first hand it was an opportunity to help people and would be a very varied career. Tina marvels over the enhancements of lens technology she has seen over the years, witnessing developments in both contact and frame lenses. Tina likes to keep up to date with new advancements so that she can offer patients the best lenses available.

Tina’s experience is invaluable when helping to train Courtney our Trainee Optical Advisor. Courtney is developing so quickly under Tina’s tutoring as she shares her wealth of knowledge.

Tina explains her enthusiasm, “My favourite part of the job is the interaction with patients advising the best lenses for their prescription but also which frames look great on them.”
