We are an independent optometric company who have three practices based throughout the Vale of Glamorgan.
All three practices are lead by Mr Christopher Aldridge BSc (Hons) MCOptom who purchased the business in July 2017 after working for the previous owner since 2015. He studied at Cardiff University and graduated in 1999. He has worked within various settings over the last 15 years from Independents where he completed his pre-registration year to the larger multiples. Chris enjoyed his time as a supervisor at the final year optometry clinics at Cardiff University. One of the areas he has found particularly fulfilling is the fitting of more complicated Rigid Gas Permeable contact lenses.
Our Barry practice is the longest established site having commenced trading in 1922. It was previously known as J Gribble Mayne & Co, originally owned by Mr Gribble followed by Mrs Viv Liles and now us. You will be greeted by our team of Gail, Naomi, Tracey and Madelaine who manage the reception area. They are always happy to help no matter how small the query may seem and also advise about any general product inquiry.
Our Cowbridge site is another well established optical practice having traded previously for 35+ years before we acquired it in 2006. You will be greeted by Sally and Madelaine who are always happy to help no matter how small the inquiry may seem. They manage the reception area and can also help with any product inquiry you may have.
Our Rhoose practice is our first establishment where we have started afresh. We opened in September 2009 and we are very pleased with our welcome from the residents of this village and look forward to meeting many more. Tracey and Naomi will be there to greet you. They manage the reception and can also handle any queries or questions you may have. They are more than happy to help.
We would like to wish Mrs Diana Hudson a happy retirement and thank her for all her hard work over the years.
