The practice is conveniently situated on a brand new development in the heart of the town


Colleagues from the Addlestone One Boots Opticians celebrated the official opening of their brand new practice with a ribbon cutting ceremony alongside Boots Opticians Managing Director, Jonathan Gardner, as part of an exciting new development in the Surrey town.

Conveniently located in the middle of the town, the Boots Opticians practice was the first store to open on the Addlestone One development.

The Addlestone One Boots Opticians practice offers NHS and private eye checks, contact lens fitting and aftercare, and also incorporates a hearing care service. The new practice is also the only Boots Opticians within 10 miles to have an OCT machine. This cutting edge, non-invasive tool produces high-resolution images detailing the 3D structure of the eye, and is the newest way to monitor changes at retina level for early detection of major eye disease, such as Glaucoma and Macular degeneration.

The practice has a dedicated hearing care room with a full scale hearing booth for easy accessibility and accurate testing.

Davin Oudit, Practice Manager for Addlestone One Boots Opticians, said: “My team and I are delighted to celebrate the opening of our practice, and can’t wait to support the local community by combining top technology, with an extensive range of fashionable frames.”

“I have worked for Boots since 2000, where I first started working as a Saturday boy in Weybridge. 19 years later, I am proud to offer the people of Addlestone a convenient place to come for all their eye care and hearing needs.”

The practice is located in Addlestone One, a brand new development spearheaded by the local councils, to help reinvigorate the local town and support local communities and businesses.

Jonathan Gardner, Managing Director, Boots Opticians, said: “We are really pleased to open our Addlestone One Boots Opticians Practice, and are excited about bringing patient care and customer service to the heart of what we do in this community.

“Practice Manager, Davin, has over 15 years of experience as an Optometrist and over 19 years with Boots UK, so I am confident he’s going to offer an excellent service for the communities and patients that will access the practice.”
