Shine Gonzalvez

Shine is the Optometrist at Monoptics. She qualified from City University over 30 years ago. She has worked in the UK, abroad, private practice and the voluntary sector.

Shine will make sure she takes whatever time is needed to make the patient feel at ease and to fully explain the eye examination as she goes along.

Over the years she has had valuable experience in some of the well known Ophthalmic institutions including Great Ormond Street, Guys Hospital and The Institute of Optometry. Keeping up to date is very important to Shine and she is a regular attendee at continuing professional development events and courses.

Shine has now been approved by the NHS to carry out FREE eye examinations known as MECS ( Minor Eye Care Services  ) which means that certain conditions can be examined and treated in-house and under much more detail and the appropriate measures taken. This may mean that there’s no need to go to hospital. Please check the above heading under ´Examinations ´to see whether you may qualify.

To reflect the multinational clientele that we have, Shine is able to carry out  Eye Examinations in the three languages of English, Portuguese & Spanish.

Patricia & Monica

Both Patricia and Monica have worked in the optics field for many years and for Monoptics for more than 10 years. They both enjoy working with the public and are dedicated to improving quality of life through better vision. They relish the independence of our family practice and the way we care for our customers and patients.

They are both experienced optical technicians and can cut and fit lenses to our patients chosen frames so they can enjoy wearing their new glasses as soon as possible.
