BSc (Hons) MCOptom
Principal Optometrist and Owner
I went to a Quaker school called Leighton Park in Reading followed by a degree in Ophthalmic Optics at Manchester University. Pre-registration training and much of my early years were with Boots opticians working as an Optometrist, branch manager and later as an area manager at various locations throughout the country. I became the owner at Alan Brunker Opticians in 2002 with the aim to maintain and develop the excellent clinical patient care that has been main focus over the past 30+ years. For over two years, I have spent one day a week at Moorfields Eye Hospital Bedford in the clinic that provides treatment for macular degeneration which has enhanced my clinical expertise.
Angela has been at the practice since 2003 and has extensive experience as a qualified Dispensing Optician in both independent and multiple opticians. Angela is also our frame buyer and keeps up to date with the latest trends and frame developments.
I have been using Alan Brunker Opticians for a number of years, as they have continued to provide an extremely professional and reliable service. As a patient I have the utmost confidence in the Optician’s expertise, and the Dispensing Opticians who have offered advice and guidance on the type of glasses that best suit my prescription and face shape. The practice itself has recently been refurbished offering a very spacious and relaxed atmosphere, which together with the friendly and competent team provides a high quality service.
Alan Brunker opticians has looked after my family since 2002. We are all so well looked after, my children who live in London still come back, to this, the most family friendly of opticians. Offering practical advice, healthcare and continuity of care, Brunkers is unbeatable. Always a range of products to choose from, efficient and economic decisions can be made without breaking the bank. We are treated like friends from the moment we walk through the door. Where emergency care has been needed, that is fixed in a jiffy. How ever, they remember all our little foibles I have no idea, but remember they do. Thank you for everything you do.
“My family and I have been customers of Alan Brunkers Opticians for many years. I would never consider using any other opticians. The staff are very professional and helpful and I have every confidence in them. The eye examinations are very thorough, using up to date technology, and there is an extensive range of glasses to choose from, which include designer ranges. The styles are suitable for both myself and my daughters”
