Chasing a Triple Success

Chasing a Triple Success

Staff at Martin Smith Opticians have their fingers-crossed for a “hat trick” in one of the industry’s hottest competitions.

The team at the Lincoln practice was on a high when the business was announced a finalist in three categories in the prestigious Association of Optometrists (AOP) National Awards.

  • Optometrist of the Year 2019 – Dr Martin Smith
  • Practice of the Year 2019
  • Dispensing Optician of the Year 2019 – Sue Edwards

Now, staff are looking for further success – but it needs as many people as possible to vote for the practice in all three categories.

“It’s is incredibly difficult to win these awards as they attract high quality practices countrywide, but we are thrilled to have got this far and it has simply sharpened our competitive streak,” said Sue.

“It would be great to win just one of the awards, but I’d be over the moon if we could clinch all three category accolades. I don’t think any practice across the country has ever won three awards  at the same time, so that would be brilliant!

People are being urged to support Dr Martin Smith and his team, by voting via  the AOP website at:

Alternatively, they can vote by filling in a form at the Saltergate practice.

“I do hope people will get behind us, and support us across the board but, obviously votes in one, two or all three categories,  all count,” said Sue.

Votes have to be cast by 5pm on December 12.
