Anthony Blackman

Dispensing Optician

Anthony’s journey with the optical industry started in 2004, after looking for a job with career progression. He has always enjoyed learning, so it was a natural to start studying Optics in 2006. Anthony studied to become a Dispensing Optician at City & Islington College, qualifying in 2009, then remained at college for another two years to become a Contact Lens Optician.

In 2016, Anthony embarked on another course, studying a Masters Degree in Optometry at Aston University, completing in 2018. In total he has completed 12 courses within Optics, and is already looking for his next challenge.

Anthony uses his extensive knowledge to help his patients select the right frame and lenses for them, and is always happy to take the time to explain everything you need to know. He is a fellow of the Association of British Dispensing Opticians and a member of the British Contact Lens Association.
