Our Pentwyn practice opened in September 2012 and prior to this, we had both worked in large multiples for our entire careers.
We wanted to build a small, independent practice and create a professional yet relaxed environment where our patients could see the same people on every visit and even though we have now expanded and opened our second practice, that continuity of care is still our main mission.
We have always aimed to make excellent eyecare accessible for all, so we have completed dementia friends training, we have both studied (and continue to regularly practice) British Sign Language, we can be contacted via email and social media messages as well as over the telephone and we allow more time for each patient than in most other similar settings, allowing us to maintain a calm and quiet environment within the practices at all times.
Pearce & Blackmore Opticians is a multiple award winning practice, with the last year being our most successful yet. In 2023 we were named Social Media Practice of the Year at the UK wide Optician Awards, and we were a finalist in the Independent Practice of the Year category. In 2022, Clare Pearce was named Optometrist of the Year at the same awards and in 2023, Francesca was a finalist in the Innovator of the Year category at the Optometry Wales Awards.
We prioritise a good work/life balance over making profit, so our working days are Monday to Thursday (which is split over the two locations) and we close on Thursdays during school holidays to allow us a little extra time with our children.
