The Roselands’ first independent practice has now opened offering professional eye care to the local community and surrounding areas. Peter Donnelly, optometrist, has set up in Reskivers near Tregony to meet the growing demands and interest in good eye health and the changing vision needs in a digital age.  Peter has a wealth of experience with his professional career spanning more than 30 years and is working with his wife, Madeleine, in their new practice which offers easy parking off the main road.

As an independent practice we provide a very different service and atmosphere to that of a busy high street opticians. We are unrushed and offer impartial and appropriate advice with a personal touch every time. Peter will take you through the appointment from the beginning,  to the end – there is no handover to technicians or assistants and he can answer any questions as they occur.

Peter also offers dry eye advice, glaucoma and macular screening with retinal photography and contact lens fitting and care.  We also offer frame repair and adjustments if needed. Donnelly Opticians has a modern and classic display of frames in a new showroom to suit all ages,  lifestyles and pockets.  There is a wide choice of lenses of single vision, varifocals, bifocals and transitions including the world renowned manufacturers Nikon and Zeiss.  We also have a variety of sunglasses and protective work and sports eyewear.

Peter and Madeleine, a former BBC Radio Cornwall Editor and news presenter have three young boys who attend schools locally. They have been renovating and landscaping their property at Reskivers for the last few years with an aim to provide a relaxed, accessible eye care experience in the grounds of their own home.
