Ms Pearce has worked in optical practices for 16 years in both dispensing and management roles, as well as owning three independent practices in Yorkshire.

She continually embraces the high paced, ever developing optical industry and will be an asset to both her colleagues and customers. We are looking forward to Laura implementing her skills and I’m sure she will be a superb addition to the Dunelm team.”
