First forgive my darling daughter’s pose. We have a great collection of pictures of her and I promise you none like this!!

This one was taken at Hyde Park at Radio 2’s concert, a really good family day out.

I am Geri and the Dispensing Optician / Owner here at ideal eyewear I have been qualified for over 30 years but there is always something new to learn in this fast moving world they call Optics!  And that, I guess, is what makes the job interesting.

I love music, I read fantasy fiction, collect dragons and enjoy handicrafts, scrapbooking and cross stitch being my favourites. My best loved holiday escape is to the deserted beaches of Northumberland, a beautiful part of this country.

Working here with me are Sam Jarosz and Alison Booth, both of whom I have known for a while and both of whom are caring optometrists who like to take time with all their patients so they understand individual needs and have time to give advice about eyecare and visual requirements.

Sam has been a qualified optometrist for 23 years. She loves travelling to far flung places and is also a professional photographer, her photos sammyregularly appear in high profile travel magazines. Sam is also a crafty lady, making soaps, candles and jewellery, but her real passion is reserved for ice cream and chocolate!



Alison is the shy one…hence no pic. She has been an optometrist for over 20 years. Apart from working here, Alison also works in a low vision clinic helping patients with limited sight. Her spare time is largely taken up with running after her 2 children and 2 dogs., although she does make time for retail therapy, long walks and holidays. Her favourite holiday destination is the New Forest, especially Mudeford Quay.
