Sarah Knows Eyes

The Dispensing Optician

Okay, so my first blog might be a bit boring, but please bare with me…

Hello :)

Welcome to my new blog “Sarah Knows Eyes”. I’m Sarah (obvs!), I’m a qualified, FBDO registered, Dispensing Optician, and this is something that I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time, but could never quite garner enough courage to do so.

I envisage this blog (and eventual associated Twitter/Facebook accounts) as being an interactive forum for all things eyes. I often think to myself when watching the television or browsing a magazine “he/she’s wearing a nice pair of glasses, I wonder where they’re from?” Or, I’ll read a brilliant article in one of the Optometry magazines and think “this would appeal to a much wider public audience”. I wanted to provide a platform where I could not only share these things, but also answer any questions that YOU may have about your eyes or spectacles.

So, here goes, ask away…


Disclaimer: I’m not claiming to be the font of all optical knowledge, and if I don’t know the answer to a question I will do my utmost to find it for you. I will try to always give credit where it is due, but please be aware that this is a personal blog. The opinions expressed here are purely my own and not those of my employer. Feel free to challenge me, disagree with me, or tell me I’m completely nuts in the comments section of each blog entry, but I reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason whatsoever (abusive, profane, rude, or anonymous comments) – so please keep it polite, there’s no need to be mean.
