Sarah Gibson

BSC MCOptom (Optometrist)

Principle optometrist and practice director Sarah qualified as an Optometrist over 25 years ago from Cardiff University. Having completed her required post-graduate training year in Fishponds in Bristol she moved to Somerset to work for Eyetech Opticians as a mobile optometrist covering several practices in Somerset and Wiltshire.

In 2004 the opportunity arose to buy the Wincanton practice and, without thinking too hard about it, Sarah decided to grasp the nettle with both hands and embark on the next chapter of her life – that of self employed practice owner.

Sarah currently provides all the eyecare services in the practice from standard NHS sight tests, enhanced private examinations with 3D OCT scans and contact lens fittings, through to dry eye assessments and coloured lenses for reading difficulties.

She says he could not do everything she does without the support of a brilliant team who not only coordinate her clinics but provide superb care to her patients on the rest of their journey through the practice. When she is not working in the practice Sarah takes an active role in the local Chamber of Commerce and supports as many Community events as she can. She has a weakness for black lurchers and greyhounds and can often be seen around town being walked by her current hound.
