Our Optometrists



David Bull set up his practice in 1983; he has been a Senior Examiner for The College of Optometrists in both their qualifying and higher diploma exams, Chair of Somerset Local Optical Committee and has lectured nationally on many optical topics. His interests are enhancing eye care in primary care settings and contact lens practice.

Away from work David enjoys watching most sports, playing golf, gardening, cooking and spending time with his six grandchildren.





Ruth Presdee, who joined us in September 2017, has been an optometrist for nearly 24 years, having studied at Cardiff University where she met her husband, (also an optometrist).

Ruth enjoys working in High Street optical practices and divides her time between primary care optometry and her family and social interests. She is actively involved with Grace Community Church in Glastonbury, as youth leader and enjoys running, dancing and generally keeping fit, which allows her to indulge in her favourite pastime – cooking and entertaining.





Kate Bull, our Practice Manager, started with us in 1997 and is now responsible for the day-to-day running of the practice. Kate uses her background in design to have a major influence in the appearance of the practice and the frame ranges that we offer.






The rest of our team consists of:

  • Clinical assistants – Jill Campbell, Julia Reed and Natasha Steele
  • Dispensing assistant – KarenGowan
