About us

Jacksons Opticians has been practising for over 50 years. In March 2014 present owners and brothers-in-law, Matt Woolhouse and Robert Blow bought the practice.

Matt is a fully qualified Ophthalmic Optician who lives locally and worked at Jacksons in the early 00s just before and after the move from the corner of George Street.
Matt qualified 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 5 days a week at the practice and we also have a second Optician, Mr. Richard Sharp, testing one day a week for us.

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 with him at the helm.

Mrs. Andrea Wilks is our full-time Dispensing Optician/Practice Manager. She is also qualified as a Contact Lens specialist.

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

Joan Grayson is our non-qualified Dispenser and she can guide you through your spectacle choice from initial selection to fitting and collection. Joan has many years of professional experience and has the great skill of knowing exactly what frames will suit every face.

Leanne and Karen are our Optical Assistants and will be able to assist you from 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.
