About - Richard Petrie Optometrists

Our Team, Our Practice and Our Philosophy.

Our philosophy at Richard Petrie is about care.
Care for our community, who receive a fantastic service and have access to a wonderful array of products to suit their style.
Care for our team, who work tirelessly to make the practice run smoothly, and who benefit from an array of benefits including mindfulness training, team days out and pension contribution scheme.

Care for the planet through ethical and sustainable operations that we have chosen to employ. From our contact lens recycling programme and eco-certified frame options to recycling and reusing where we possibly can in our business practices.

The practice wouldn’t be successful without the team of 6 wonderful staff, all of whom are integral to the smooth running of the business. The practice is now run by Davina, who joined as a ‘Saturday Girl’ 20 years ago! Fast forward a few decades and Davina is now at the forefront of Richard Petrie Optometrists and is proudly able to continue evolving the practice as new technologies and consumer demands appear.

    All the staff made me feel relaxed and comfortable. The opticians took their time to explain the various procedures clearly and the results they found which fortunately, in my case, were good.
    It is also a very clean and 'airy'
