About Us

Dury and Tippett's owners - Steve Dury and Helen Tippett - have worked as a team for over 27 years. Helen joined the practice in 1992, when it was known by its original name Dury and Shaw, and became a full partner in the newly renamed Dury and Tippett in 2005. Five years ago, Steve and Helen doubled the size of the practice to allow room for the Style Zone, the jukebox and all the quirky individual features you'll see in there today. Steve almost fell into optics by chance; as a teenager he was a guitarist in a band, and the other guitarist at the time was training to become a Dispensing Optician. Steve followed suit after thinking that his friend's choice of career "sounded interesting". By contrast, Helen first became interested in optics after listening to a talk from a visiting optician during a careers evening at school. She studied at City University in London, before moving to Bristol for her 'pre-registration' year, and joined the practice soon afterwards. Between them, Steve and Helen have taken care to ensure they have surrounded themselves with a team who not only share their vision for the practice, but also their passion for quality patient care. The whole team prides themselves on their outstanding optical knowledge, and are able to frequently use this to advise patients or make recommendations. Eye Health Driving at night can be a tricky activity at the best of times, as darker surroundings make it more difficult to spot potential hazards. But if you're also frequently dazzled by the glare of oncoming car lights or streetlights, it can be an even more uncomfortable experience. Ask for a demonstration, in virtual reality, of the driving benefits with ZEISS Drivesafe lenses. This uses the ZEISS VR One virtual reality headset for an amazing simulation of driving in various conditions with and without the benefit of ZEISS Drivesafe lenses.
