About us

Jacksons Opticians has been practising for over 50 years and are now part of the NHS minor eye conditions service. In March 2014 present owners Matt Woolhouse and Robert Blow bought the practice. They are brothers in law.

Matt is a fully qualified Opthalmic Optician who lives locally and worked at Jacksons in the early 00s just before and after the move from the corner of George Street (currently a solicitors). Matt qualifed from the University of Bradford in 1992 and after passing his professional exams in 1993 he has been working as a full time Optician. Matt is currently testing two days a week at the practice.

Robert is a fully qualified Dispensing Optician and he has been working in, managing and running practices within the Mansfield and Nottinghamshire area since the early 90s. When his father retired from running DI Blow Opticians in 1999 Robert took over and the business has gone from strength to strength.

Mr Kim Burton is our resident full time Optician. Matt and Kim have worked together previously and share a mutual respect and professional work ethic.

Mrs Andrea Wilks is our full time Dispensing Optician/Practice Manager. She is also qualified to fit and dispense contact lenses.

Alongside our professionally qualified staff we also employ support staff who will look after you throughout your visit.

Ginie is our non qualified Dispenser and she can guide you through your spectacle choice from initial selection to fitting and collection. Julie, Leanne and Tanya will be able to assist you starting with booking your initial appointment to guiding you through our services and helping you complete any purchases you wish to make.

It is this combination of business and professional prowess which we believe should make Jacksons your first and only choice for Eyecare in the Glossop area.
