What tips would you give to others who want to become a dispensing optician at LFO?

Kerri - Come in with your eyes wide open and be prepared to learn more than you think you’ll need to. The opportunities are massive.

Becky - Get yourself into a great independent optician where you’re well supported. Then undertake a distance learning course with ABDO college. I thoroughly enjoyed my time training and feel it’s the best way to learn alongside working in practice.



Why should a Dispensing Optician aspire to work at Lynne Fernandes Optometrists?

Kerri - So many, there is no ceiling to development at LFO. I joined to be Dispensing Optician manager of a small practice. Over 15 years, I've been allowed and encouraged to develop to be Operations Manager of a great local independent company that's recognised nationally. The excitement about coming to work is still this space

Beth - I've worked in management roles for national chains previously. This is the best, most enjoyable position I've had. I'm supported, encouraged and looked after. Cut me open and I have LFO in my heart

Becky – Being company trainer: I’ve been given objectives, but I’m trusted to train in the way I feel best. I've earned this trust after 15 years: first as a trainee DO, qualifying, managing Wells Road, then Gloucester Road, now to my current role.

It’s a fantastic place to work, I enjoy every day, and would recommend it to anyone who has a passion for optics.


At LFO, we passionately believe the professionalism and enthusiasm of great Dispensing Opticians is vital to our business.
