Dipple & Conway has promoted Alison Blake from senior optometrist to clinical lead, a move that is part of the independent’s commitment to remaining at the forefront of clinical eye care excellence.

Ms Blake will join Dipple & Conway’s management team, and handle all clinical queries and advice, while leading, supporting and training optometrists and staff in the latest clinical eye care skills.

In her new role, Ms Blake will also advise the business owners about new developments in optical technology, research and treatments.

Speaking about the appointment, Dipple & Conway’s managing director, Matthew Conway, said: “The focus of Alison’s new role means we’ll remain at the forefront of the most advanced optical research, treatments, technology and procedures in our rapidly changing environment.”

“It’s all about offering our clients the reassurance that their eye health is in the best possible, expert hands, and we wish Alison every success with this exciting new career move,” he added.

Ms Blake joined Dipple & Conway in 2013, and has been an optical professional for almost 20 years.
