Wigram and Ware- Who we are
Wigram and Ware is owned by Jennifer Morigi and Stuart Andrews and was founded in 1959. Jennifer originally qualified as a Dispensing Optician and has been a partner in the business since 1983. Stuart qualified as a Optometrist in 1999 and has been a partner in the business since 2002. The practice has operated in Bury St. Edmunds since 1959 and from the Central Walk premises since 1974.
We have two consulting rooms, a dispensing area in our main showroom – all fully air conditioned to create the optimal environment for our patients and clients. We have a consulting room on the ground floor. Each consulting room in the practice has a full compliment of equipment for eye examinations and the fitting of contact lenses.
With our Optomap® 200DX Digital Retinal Imaging Scanner, we can not only examine the whole of the back of your eye in incredible detail, but we can show these images to you and email them to your consultant or doctor, together with any referral you may need, advancing the detection and monitoring process.
Your macular and optic nerve health can now also be monitored using our newly acquired, state of the art Spectral OCT SLO™ system which combines industry leading spectral OCT imaging with a confocal scanning ophthalmoscope (SLO) in one highly advanced instrument. This enables us to both diagnose and track changes in the most complex retinal diseases and their treatments.
Our Humphrey Field Analiser is recognised as the industry gold standard tool for detecting and monitoring visual field defects.
We are now also able to tailor your progressive lenses to provide the perfect ratio of distance and close vision capability to suit your specific requirements using the Hoya ID Mystyle lens. An area of constant change is the main showroom, with spectacle frames and lenses sourced from around the world. Under the watchful eye of Jennifer and Christine, they carefully select frames from the World’s top manufacturers.
All our Opticians are qualified professionals and registered with the General Optical Council and receive recognition within this organisation for continued education in the field of Optics. We attend seminars all over the country and receive updates on the latest products and research every week.
Our opticians are members of the British Contact Lens Association. Wigram and Ware is an Acuvue Centre of Excellence and we regularly attend conferences and training days to learn about the latest contact lens products and research.
We pride ourselves in our total independence as an optical practice, as this gives us complete freedom to adopt whatever technological advances will be of benefit to our patients. This professional freedom allows us to choose the very best optical suppliers, products and equipment.
Wigram and Ware will continue to invest in new technology and science to bring our customers a highly professional approach to eye care.
Being able to give our patients the best advice and the best product that is available in the world today, is an crucial and exciting aspect of our work.
