Nadeem is our resident Optometrist and the owner of Mersey Eyecare. When Nadeem started the business in 2005 he was young, fresh faced and enthusiastic; ten years down the line he remains enthusiastic!
Testing eyes and having the opportunity to interact with his patients is Nadeem’s favourite part of being an Optometrist, which is lucky as this is what he spends most of his time doing. As well as being more than capable when it comes to testing the health of your eyes, Nadeem is also our resident fashion expert. As the proud owner of no less than ten Prada suits, you may find Nadeem in front of the mirror examining which frames best ‘suits’ his latest purchase.
Nadeem has asked us to include the fact that his favourite super hero is Batman. We think this is because he would like comparisons to be made between himself and the Dark Knight – ‘Eye Exam Man’? No, we didn’t think so either…
Ruth has been with Mersey Eyecare since the outset, and is one half of the self-proclaimed ‘finest double act in optics’ along with her sister Amy.
On a day-to-day basis Ruth carries out a number of duties within the practice, but her primary concern is ensuring that when you visit us, you leave with a smile and the perfect pair of specs on your face.
When it comes to frames Ruth is like a magpie to shiny things and enjoys examining all of our frames in great detail to ensure they are ‘up to scratch’. This is particularly true where Michael Kors Eyewear is concerned, although we’re pretty sure that this interest stems mainly from handbags and watches as opposed to optics – you’re fooling no one Ruth!
Amy is the other half – and in her own words “the better half” – of the ‘finest double act in optics’. Like Ruth, Amy has been with Mersey Eyecare since Nadeem started the practice over ten years ago and is an integral member of our team.
During a normal day’s work Amy’s time is split between booking appointments, advising on frames and her favourite part of the job: making home visits. Amy finds her trips out of the practice very rewarding as she believes that it’s important to not only help the people who visit the opticians, but also those who physically can’t.
Like all people who work in the optical industry, Amy has a favourite brand of eyewear; her preference is Dolce & Gabbana due to their variety of unique designs.
Despite having joined the team back in 2011, Zoe is still our newest member of staff here at Mersey Eyecare. This originally meant she was given the not-so-original nickname ‘New Girl’, but luckily after a few years on the job she has managed to shake this.
When you visit us Zoe’s face is likely to be the first you see, which guarantees you a warm welcome as soon as you step through the door.
Zoe is also in charge of ensuring that our appointment book and client records are kept up to date. If you are ever unsure about what frames are right for you then Zoe’s experience and keen eye for detail makes her the perfect person to ask for advice. Don’t be shy, she doesn’t bite!

This was my second time using Mersey Eyecare, the first being two years ago. I cannot fault the service provided by the Optician and all of the staff. I was given a thorough eye examination, something I was pleased about after having suffered some months with serious vision problems and following months of hospital appointments. What could have been an anxious time was made much easier by a friendly Optician who explained everything clearly and answered all of my questions thoroughly. For that I am very grateful. The reception staff were also excellent, very friendly and helpful and assisted us with selecting new glasses and explaining what I was entitled to. The after care was also first class, calling in to have my glasses adjusted a few times was no trouble, the staff again being really friendly and helpful. I can't recommend Mersey Eyecare highly enough, they are first class. I shall certainly be using them again.
Brilliant opticians. I've been going there for years now. Every member of staff is lovely, helpful and polite and will...
