We stock a very extensive, reasonably priced range of both unbranded and also leading designer spectacle frames to suit all budgets.

We stock a fabulous range of Silhouette, Nike-Flexon, Joop, Barbour, Elle, Jaguar, Calvin Klein, Kate Spade amongst others and can willingly get hold of (almost) any frame you want.

We are also happy to fit new lenses to your existing frames. You may well have a good frame you are happy with. We make a scan of your frame and from that make new lenses to will fit the frame precisely. You do not have to leave your frame with us during the time it takes to make the new lenses. When the new lenses have been made and checked, we invite you to return to have the new lenses fitted “while you wait”. How's that for service!


As an independent optician, we are keen to say that we are not tied to any one lens manufacturer. We are particularly proud of our association with Omega, Nikon, Hoya and Zeiss but use other brands of lenses in addition to these. Indeed we will always endeavour to supply the lens we know will be best for your requirements.

We get the lenses precisely shaped to fit the frame and assemble most of the spectacles on site. This helps to assure the quality of assembly.

Contact Lenses

We have many years experience in the prescribing and fitting of most types of contact lenses. Again, we are not tied to any one supplier and will always fit the lens best suited to your eyes.Should you wish, we are also happy to facilitate the ordering of your contact lens supplies from the internet. Contact lenses can literally change your life: allow us to show you how!


We both believe passionately in the protection of the eyes afforded by the regular use of sunglasses and try to persuade people of all ages to seriously consider this vital aspect of their eyecare. We are particularly keen to emphasise the benefits of polarized sunglasses especially for driving.

We stock a wide range of sunglasses and believe it can be as important to wear them in winter (due to the low, direct sun) as well as in summer or on holiday!

Specialist polarized sunglasses that we stock include Maui Jim, Invu from Switzerland and the amazing Drivewear (David and Elizabeth's favourite sunglass lens). Drivewear is a very smart lens that adapts to the changing conditions (overcast to bright) even when driving!
