After beginning working in optics in 2008 I studied Ophthalmic Dispensing at ABDO College in Kent, qualifying in 2016. I enjoy spending time with patients and helping them try on different frames that suit their style and prescription, I specialise in Nikon lenses.

Working in a small independent opticians really allows me the time to get to know the patients and residents in the local community. I work in the Bawtry and Dinnington practices.

Heather Bentley

I have worked for Hudson’s Opticians for 23 years since the practice first opened its doors. Over the years I have come to know the patients and the local community very well. I thoroughly enjoy seeing our patients return year after year and meeting new arrivals to the area.

I particularly enjoy seeing the new frame ranges and changing the displays to match the season. We have a warm and friendly practice that welcomes everyone. I work in the Bawtry practice.

RECEPTIONIST

Carole Vandenbrook

I’ve worked as a receptionist at our Dinnington practice since our shop opened over 20 years ago. During that time I’ve become familiar with many of our patients who have been with us all that time. I’ve seen their children grow up and attend now as adults. I’ve always enjoyed reception as you are the first point of contact, I enjoy meeting new patients and catching up with our existing patients. After all these years I still thoroughly enjoy working in Dinnington as there is always something new, whether it be patients, frames or events!
