“I must love my job to drive for 2 hours to see my patients!”

I have worn glasses since I was 9 when I started to become short sighted and struggled to see the blackboard in school. At first I wore them just for lessons,  but before long, my horrible NHS frames were full time feature. There was little choice – black, brown, blue, pink or crystal, and only one style. Together with my teenage spots, they did little for my self esteem.

As I got older, I could never find frames that fitted or gave the outward projection I wished to show the world –  I “radiated geek” when I wanted to look cool and sophisticated! My eyewear was ugly and uncomfortable which made me unhappy. Contact lenses were good for sport but I overwore them because I hated my glasses so much and ended up with an eye ulcer.

When I bought Jackson, I vowed my practice would become the place to go for eyewear that is stylish, comfortable and anything but DULLA place to find something that sings to your soul and makes you excited to wear glasses.

We source our frames from the very best collections of handmade niche eyewear from around the world to bring our clients options from which to develop their Eyewear Wardrobe. We buy frames for real faces and real people so I promise we will have something special for you.

When I am not at Jacksons and not working for NWSSP-PCS I love my garden and going for long walks with our French Bulldog Claude. Sometime after aquiring Jacksons I moved to Anglesey and am fortunate enough to live overlooking the sea and the mountains. I always say that proof of how much I love my job is that after all these years, I am still happy to drive for 2 hours to see my patients!


Practice Manager and Clinical Dispenser

“helping my clients find their perfect frames gives me such a buzz!”

I have worked in Optometry for many years and joined Jacksons when I moved to Cheshire from Cumbria. I have a degree in Business Management but have found my passion in frame styling – helping my clients find their perfect frames gives me such a buzz!

I am big on attention to detail. I enjoy a challenge and will leave no stone unturned to develop your perfect Eyewear Wardrobe. We carry hundreds of frames in stock, but also offer collections with bespoke ordering for certain collections such and Lindberg and Tom Davies to help clients find a perfect fit. I promise we will find just the right frame for you!

My favourite brand is Lindberg. I am in awe of how a frame can be so strong but weigh so little. I find them very comfortable and love the way it is possible to tweek sizing and colour in order to deliver just what my patients want.

When not in work I like to keep busy. When I came to Nantwich I bought a house which needed work and this has kept me out of mischief – I recently laid my own garden path and patio! I love my garden although I am not fond of mowing the lawn and I am a pretty good baker too!


Clinical Lens Expert and Frame Stylist

“Just because you have a large prescription, it does not mean that you cannot have lovely looking glasses.”

Being quite short sighted I understand how it feels to be completely dependent on glasses or contact lenses. I really empathise with patients in a similar position and love helping them find the right frame and the right lenses to give them beautiful glasses that draw compliments and are comfortable to wear. Just because you have a large prescription, it does not mean that you cannot have lovely looking glasses. You need to however be thoughtful about your choice of frame and lens – thats where I come in!

L.a Eyeworks is one of my favourite brands. I don’t think I have ever worn a more comefortable frame. And I love Ronit Furst – who wouldn’t love their colourful handpainted designs.

I love travel and firmly believe that you can never have too many pairs of sunglasses! I have been all over the world but still have places on my bucket list that I am intent on visiting. I love my garden and enjoy making it a great place for wildlife to visit.
