We are the only opticians in town to have an Optomap scanner and an OCT scanner. These instruments allow us to monitor your eye health in a much more comprehensive manor. This allows us to diagnose and deal with changes in the eye much earlier before they become a problem. More information on these instruments can be found here.

Our Humphrey Field Analyser is recognised as the industry gold standard tool for detecting and monitoring visual field defects.

Our large, welcoming dispensing area shows off our great range of spectacle frames. Under the watchful eye of Jennifer and Christine we carefully select interesting frames from around the world. We offer a genuine bespoke service to ensure a perfect frame design and fit and all dispensing is undertaken by fully qualified staff. For further information about our range of frames click here.

We want to supply you with the best spectacle lenses for your needs. We supply all types of spectacle lenses from simple single vision to the most technologically advanced varifocals. We can tailor your varifocal lenses to provide the perfect ratio of distance and close vision capability to suit your specific requirements using the Hoya ID Mystyle lens. More information on our spectacle lenses can be found here.

All our Opticians are qualified professionals and registered with the General Optical Council. We regularly undertake continued education in all fields 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.
