Anne Gill Eyecare - PortsmouthHello, my name is Anne Gill, and I set up Anne Gill Eyecare in 2013 having had 36 years of experience in the optical business. I started my own practice because I wanted to give patients like you the quality of eye care that is fast disappearing from the high street.

I am a qualified Dispensing Optician, and I’ve worked for independent opticians and a well-known high street chain. I felt strongly that the soulless, impersonal, production line approach let down many patients. What was really needed was an independent optician, staffed only by properly trained and qualified staff, who had the time to get to know their patients as individuals.

The practice opened in January 2013 and has been serving the local community since. We have built up a local reputation for quality advice and friendly, professional service, and now attract clients from as far away as London and Bognor Regis.
