The role of Wendy

Wendy is an important staff member at our practice. Wendy is the DISPENSING LENS AND FRAME EXPERT and this is what her role entails:

Frame Selection – ensures the frame selected will have a perfect fit, is able to be altered appropriately, and also that the frame is suitable for the selected lens. They are experts on frame materials suitable for allergies, or if a lightweight or robust design is required.

Lens Selection – The dispensing Optician carries out a visual task analysis with the patient (discussing working habits, leisure activities, and any problem arises) and recommends the most suitable products for the patients’ lifestyle. 

Spectacle fitting and Collection – Correctly fitted spectacles provide the best possible visual correction, and comfort. A Dispensing Optician will accurately fit a frame and check the vision when the spectacles are ready.

Frame Repairs – It is possible for a Dispensing Optician to assess most frames for repairs in the practice, and advise on the appropriate action to take from there.
