About Us

Although Liverton Opticians is a new face on the block, it combines a wealth of experience with a refreshing personal approach to the profession.

Managing Optometrist and owner Catherine McNamara, spent twenty-five years working for a leading brand name in the industry, first as an optometrist, then as branch manager and for the last ten years as owner of the opticians franchise at the Boots flagship store in Cardiff.

Catherine lives with her husband, Clive, in Park Square, just a short distance from the practice in Newport. She has four children, a son and daughter currently at university and two younger sons.

Practice Manager is Natalie Young who is responsible for reception and appointments. Natalie, who lives locally in Newport, has considerable experience both as a Practice Manager and as a Dispenser for leading multiple and local opticians.

Rachel Hyatt has had three years previous experience within the optics industry working for a well known high street multiple. Highly trained in all aspects of spectacle dispensing, Rachel has a wide knowledge of contact lenses, where her key skills lie. As a local resident of Newport, she is keen to encourage and promote support for local business.

The practice is open from 9a.m. to 5.30p.m. Monday to Friday and from 9a.m. to 1p.m. on Saturdays.

If you are not able to visit the practice in Charles Street due to ill health or disability, Liverton Opticians will be happy to arrange for one of our optometrists to visit you at home. Please contact us if you wish to make a domiciliary appointment.
