ABOUT US

Woodward Optical’s approach to eyewear ensures that your spectacles suit you and your lifestyle. Because your optical needs are unique to you, our fully qualified and experienced professionals take time to find frames and lenses that are the perfect fit.

At Woodward Optical eyecare is just as important. So that our optometrist can thoroughly investigate your eyes and eye health our standard appointment time is 45 minutes. This results in a comprehensive treatment plan for your visual and ocular needs. Our optometrist can treat sore eyes, remove foreign objects, and address many other concerns you may have about your eyes. We also prescribe contact lenses, again using the latest available options.

WHO WE ARE

Jim Blakeley

Jim Blakeley

FBDO, Dispensing Optician
Jim has been part of Woodward Optical since 2002. Originally from UK, he began his career in optics in 1992 and graduated as a Dispensing Optician there in 1995. He has worked for large corporate groups and small independent practices, and much prefers the service that being independent offers. He is knowledgeable in ensuring the best outcomes possible for frames and lenses, and gets quite nerdy when sorting out the more unusual spectacle prescriptions.
When he’s not working, his two daughters keep him busy, and he likes to strum the ukulele when he can. He volunteers at the local primary school running the ukulele orchestra there. One day he hopes to get reasonably good at playing.
