Your optometrist

Rebecca Hankinson has been an optometrist for more than 25 years.

  She trained at City University, London and then St Paul's Eye Hospital in Liverpool before returning to the North East to work in the Hebburn practice she now owns.

Eye examinations

Comprehensive and thorough – our eye examinations

Our cutting-edge technology allows us to identify your current prescription in just a few minutes, so that we can determine your need for new glasses or contact lenses.
