The Team

Derek Dunstone took over the longstanding 'Rawlings' business in 1991 and so changed the Practice name at that time. Andrew Dunstone became a Partner in December 2018 and Director in May 2021. Michael became a Partner in December 2022.

We are open each weekday, continue to grow and welcome many existing and new patients. The Practice has three consultation rooms, a supplementary tests room and two dispensing areas.

We offer the latest Swept-Source Optical Coherance Tomography (SS-OCT) scans as part of a comprehensive eye examination, as well as up to date spectacle and contact lens provision, refractive surgery advice and aftercare. Our team aims to provide the highest standard of Optometry services to patients in an ethical and well equipped independent practice.

Dunstone Optometry is the trading name of Dunstone Optometry Limited.
