Karyn Slatter, the second of the original partners of Edmonds and Slatter Opticians has recently retired after over 30 years of practice in the area. The first practice in Blaby opened in 1986, shortly followed by Glenfield in 1987 and Lutterworth in 1990. Tim Cole, Dispensing Optician and Saagar Hirani, Optometrist, who became partners in 2006, when John Edmonds retired, continue to run the practices.
Karyn started the Independent opticians in partnership with Optometrist John Edmonds and over the years has dispensed and fitted thousands of pairs of spectacles for their Leicestershire based patients. Karyn has asked us, through this column to thank everyone who has been a patient of the practices during this time. It has enabled her to meet many lovely people and says it is this element that she will miss the most.
Tim Cole said: ‘Karyn’s drive and dedication have created a unique Optical environment and a fantastic team, she will be hugely missed by us all. We’d like to wish her all the very best for the future, and a very well-deserved long, healthy and happy retirement.’
Karyn’s passion for detail and quality are part of the company ethos. The staff and partners of Edmonds and Slatter Opticians intend to continue to pay tribute to these by upholding these standards in the future
