If I provide the best care and advice possible, I know I will create lifelong relationships.”

Optical Manager


A familiar face at Carterton Opticians, Donna has been with us for over 11 years.  Always friendly and cheerful, she loves making sure that people are well looked after at every visit.

“It can be a familiar face or a first time visitor, but I really love when you know you’ve made someone’s day.  Perhaps they have a great new pair of glasses or getting contact lenses for the first time, but they leave with a smile on their face, that’s when I know I love what I do!”

Dear Donna + Adam,
Thank you so much for having been the most wonderful opticians and friends over the last couple of years. We haven’t really + luckily needed much from a doctor or a dentist but we have regularly and reliably needed to sort out our eyes. Whether it has been glasses contact lenses or health checks it has always been fun to come + visit you two. Sometimes when the boys were little and it was the school holidays you were our day’s activity!
Now that we are off on our 6 months travels we have enough lenses in our backpacks to be able to see the beaches of Greece, the goal posts of Japan and the mountain views of Bhutan. Plus we have glasses for the bits in between waking up + going to sleep. Thank you for helping us work out all of that. Contact lenses were a matter of logistics.
Recently you have gone above + beyond to deliver things to the house and post things to us. We were very grateful for all of that as I’m sure it isn’t really part of Specsavers or Boot’s service.
That’s why it is so nice to make friends with ones optician. We will really miss you. And Carteron which always made me feel as if it was in a town centre in Holland.
Thanks for everything and if either of you ever find yourselves in New Zealand please do look us up.

With Love + best wishes from
