Eavan Kennedy

Optometrist and Owner BSC MCOPTOM

Eavan Kennedy

Eavan qualified as an Optometrist in Manchester University, and has over thirty year’s experience working in Optics. In May 1998, Eavan opened her own practice on the Lisburn Road, Belfast.

Eavan wants every patient to have the best possible vision. She is passionate about optometry and providing professional eye care through personalised examinations, first class customer service and state of the art equipment. Eavan is always keeping up to date with new developments. Being very short-sighted herself, her latest area of expertise is Myopia in children.

Eavan strongly believes that all her customers should have access to a wide range of eye care products, including high quality fashion frames from the world’s top designers.

When not working you’ll find her sailing around the shores of West Cork, cooking and enjoying the outdoors.

Donna Lennox

Senior Optical Assistant

Donna Lennox

Donna has worked in optics for over thirty years. She ensures that customers chose the perfect frame and lenses to guarantee that their spectacles are comfortable, stylish and fulfil all their optical needs.

As a fashion-conscious glasses wearer herself she embraces new styles. She has a tribe of followers and people come in and ask specifically for her to style them. She is very involved in frame buying, as she has a unique eye for detail and ongoing trends.

Donna has also trained as a Contact Lens Assistant. A contact lens wearer herself, Donna has expert knowledge to offer advice when discussing contact lens options with new and current contact lens wearers.

Outside of work, Donna likes nothing more than keeping fit outside by walking her dog or hopping on her bike. And would you believe it, she loves playing with her grandchildren!

Ramune Gough

Ramune has 10 years of experience working in a variety of independent and high street opticians, across the UK and in her home country, Lithuania.

She specialises in frame and lenses selection so you can look and see your best. No matter what you are looking for: a new pair of glasses, needing a repair, adjustment or just some advice, rest assured you are in safe hands. She’ll give you excellent advice on the latest lens products and glasses trends to create each customer’s ideal look.

Outside of work, Ramune enjoys travelling, baking and hiking. She loves spending time at local beaches, the Mournes and forest parks with her young family.

Kate Monro

Optical Assistant


Kate has worked in optics for many years and is responsible for the smooth running of the practice.

She takes great pride in looking after our patients and delivering the highest standard of customer service on their eyecare journey with us.

Catherine McGuckin


Catherine McGuckin

Catherine has been part of the EK Eyewear team since February 2022. She studied Optometry at Ulster University in Coleraine graduating with a Masters in July 2021.

Despite having not long left full-time education, Catherine has since furthered her knowledge completing many qualifications including the MECS (Minor Eye Conditions Service) qualification and a professional certificate in Medical Retina. Her newly obtained knowledge has come in handy day-to-day in the practice, when utilising our specialised equipment such as the OCT and Optos machines.

She cares deeply about building relationships with patients and providing them with the best care. Catherine adores some of our more eccentric frames, but to her dismay has yet to need spectacles!

Outside of work, when not studying, you will find her brunching around Belfast or spending time with her loud and large family!

Dolores Sherlock


Dolores Sherlock

Dolores has been a colleague at EK Eyewear for two years. She studied Optometry at City University in London [1989-1992].

In the mid 1990s she worked with a charity in Africa providing eye care to rural populations. In the last few years Dolores has embraced advanced technology. Her particular interests lie in diseases which affect the back of the eye, glaucoma and dry eye. She is currently studying advanced medical retina at Moorfields/ UCL one of the first Optometrists in Northern Ireland to do so.

As someone who is a short-sighted glasses and contact lens wearer since the age of 12, she is enjoying learning more about recent advances in myopia management which can predict and may control levels of short-sightedness in the early to late teens.

Outside work, she has been lucky enough to travel the world, exploring 39 countries, with more to come. She loves food, wine, cats and swimming, though not all at once.
