Hello I’m Tara. I am an optical assistant with Edel McElholm Opticians and I have enjoyed this role for six years. My role as an optical assistant requires me to carry out tasks such as taking and organising appointments and keeping paperwork and forms up to date. I also make sure the practice is organised and presentable at all times and carry out any other tasks that the Optometrists require of me. I thoroughly enjoy my position and have a great relationship with all of my colleagues. My favourite part of being an optical assistant is getting to meet, interact and help both new and familiar people. I relish in making our patients feel comfortable and calm and providing them with an excellent and superior service.
