Your local optician


Family-owned and run, you can expect to see the same friendly faces when you pop in – and the same dedication and care we’d extend to our own family members. You’ll never be just a number with us – so come in to see why our service is so unique.

Cilla Hubbard


Director/Dispensing optician

Cilla qualified as a dispensing optician in 1988 and has worked in high street practice with both well known multiple opticians and high-end independent opticians. After 23 years on the high street Cilla moved into the hospital eye service in Northampton General Hospital where she ran the low vision service. Cilla has also worked for Moorfields Eye Hospital London preparing patients for refractive corneal surgery and lenticular replacement surgery. She has run her own low vision private practice working with individual patients in their homes, and also in care homes, assessing needs and supplying aids where appropriate. She has owned the practice since August 2016.




John has been at Corsham Opticians since the summer of 2018 after many years of running his own practices in Somerset. He brings a wealth of experience with him gathered since qualifying in 1982 from Aston University. His quiet demeanour hides his dry sense of humour which appears unexpectedly, and his love of fine wines and port means he fits in perfectly in Corsham Opticians!




Maria qualified as an optometrist in 1992 from City University London and then moved to Wiltshire. She worked in several local towns with a large multiple optician and then latterly with a small independent optician before joining us here in Corsham. We are delighted to have her here and she has quickly settled in to become part of the team. Maria enjoys all aspects of optometry and will be the friendly face you will meet for contact lens examinations. Maria is very creative spending her time with family, walking, singing and travelling.

Chris Ditte


Reception staff

Chris has been part of the practice here in Corsham for many years and knows the local area inside out. She will be a familiar figure to many of you and you will recognise her if you have been to the practice over the years. She always has a smile ready and a cup of coffee waiting if you would like one.

Optical Assistant/Reception Staff

Holly has worked in optics in Devon for approximately 9 years prior to coming to us here in Corsham Opticians. She is highly creative and her flair for colour means she is put in charge of the window displays. As a contact lens wearer she is able to teach and advise on all aspects of contact lens care, and is very patient when teaching new contact lens wearers. She has a surprising taste in music…
