New Staff Member – Our new Optometrist

We are excited to welcome our new Optometrist, Claire Lower, to join our team at Salmoni’s. Claire graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2015 and worked as a mobile Optometrist in Lothian, the Borders and Fife before becoming a resident Optometrist in Princes Street, Edinburgh. Whilst working here, Claire was responsible for supervising two pre-registered Optometrists and a student Dispensing Optician.

Claire has completed the Independent Prescribing course for Optometrists, and is currently waiting to be assigned a clinical placement before sitting the final exam. This qualification enables optometrists to clinically assess a patient, establish a diagnosis, determine the clinical management required and, importantly, prescribe licensed medicines where necessary.

Outside of work, Claire enjoys netball, hill walking and is currently learning Gaelic. She is a keen baker and enjoys art and embroidery. We look forward to Claire joining us as a valuable member of the team in May 2021.
