When Linda qualified as an Optometrist she knew that one day she would open & run her own practice, hence in 2006 Eye Candy Opticians became a reality. Linda’s vision was to be able to offer a comprehensive Eye examination followed by the dispensing of frames & lenses sourced from niche fashion houses.
Many of her suppliers have been sourced from exhibitions that Linda frequently attends in Paris, Milan and London. By staying ahead of the trends and offering a unique selection of frames to her customers means that many pieces on offer are once off styles.
Following numerous courses and workshops including a Minor Eye Condition Service Emergency Care Course, in 2017 Linda opened her Dry Eye Clinic, which she is passionate about as she has encountered many patients suffering from this condition now more than ever. When not in Eye Candy Opticians Linda enjoys spending time outdoors playing tennis, golf, walking and gardening.
