Professional Eyecare 

is our passion


Our independent optometry practice is dedicated to providing a traditional, caring and professional service, all delivered by our helpful and friendly staff.

The practice was founded in 1985 and is constantly developing, with continued investment in new equipment which include field screening technology similar to the type used in most eye hospitals.


Over the years, some things like the equipment we use has changed but the service we provide has always been of a high standard. We supply a full range of optometric services including NHS and Private eye examinations, the Welsh Assembly sponsored Welsh Eye Care Examination and emergency appointments for people with acute eye problems.

If you need spectacles or contact lenses then being independent opticians we are free to advise you on the best frames and lenses to suit your eyes.

Meet Our Team

The best and the brightest


Elliot Bateman

Elliot has been with the practice since 2013, having taken over from Peter Hong in early 2015. He qualified in Optometry at Cardiff University in 2010, and has since had experience in hospital and high street eye care. He is an honorary welshman, having lived in Wales since 2006, and enjoys a bit of banter around Six Nations time! He’s also partial to a Welshcake (or three) and as such would never move back to England!


Natasha Wassall

Natasha is our Pre-Registration Optometrist, having qualified from Cardiff University with a degree in Optometry in 2019. She has been with us since early 2018, having previously worked as an Optical Assistant whilst completing her studies, and is now working with us under supervision in order to qualify as an Optometrist. She has a love of baking and is partial to a good cup of Yorkshire tea!


Lucy Price

Lucy has been with our team since 2015, having had previous optical experience, and is now qualified as a Dispensing Optician. She also has a love of operatic music, and if you’re lucky you might catch her singing Nessun Dorma in between helping our patients pick a perfect pair of glasses!


Jodie Boulton

Jodie has been with us since 2017, having had previous optical experience, and is working with us as an Optical Assistant. She has an expert knowledge of frame shapes and styles, and loves to find a great fitting pair of glasses for every patient. She’s an avid dog lover, and you may see her walking Darcy whilst singing along with George Michael and a bit of Il Divo.


Lisa Bateman

Lisa is one of the newest members of our team, joining us in late 2019. Having previously qualified as an Art Teacher, Lisa has an expert eye for colours and visual aesthetics. She has previous optical experience from days working as a Saturday girl for Pete, and now works with us as an Optical Assistant, training to improve her optical skills. In her spare time Lisa enjoys making and creating personalised gifts and cards, and sharing our latest frames and offers on social media.
