What does a typical day look like for a Bayfields Dispensing Optician?

My typical day consists of helping to open the practice, answering queries from clients over the phone and in person. Helping clients find the best solutions for their individual lifestyles after their eye test; this involves helping to choose the perfect frame for the client and the best lenses to help them achieve the best vision.


My dispensing training means I can make informed decisions on correct lens designs to help produce a lens that looks good but is great to look through.

Sometimes I help guide clients through the process of trialing contact lenses for the first time by being accessible for any questions they have and helping them learn the application and removal process.

What is your favourite thing to do in your job role?

My favorite part of my job role is when you find that perfect frame for someone and you can instantly tell they have fallen in love with it. I love the fact we can bespoke a frame to fit an individual client.
