Hipperholme eye specialists Thornton and Wright Opticians have been nominated for two prestigious national awards in recognition of their services to optics.
Andrew Thornton has been shortlisted in the ‘Optometrist of the Year’ category and the opticians have been nominated in the ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’ category.
Run by the Association of Optometrists (AOP), the awards recognise the highest levels of achievement in UK optics.
On his nomination Mr Thornton said: “I do not put myself forward as an OCT expert. This nomination is a reflection on having been in on ‘the ground floor’ for this new technology. I am no more than three and a half years ahead of the others, whom may not have been able to introduce this technology to their practices yet.”
The second award acknowledges their marketing campaign which promotes optometry and increasing awareness of eye health by the practice.
