We try and offer something different to our clients, from frames you won’t see everywhere, to custom fitted contact lenses, hopefully with fantastic personal customer service and value for money.

Fingers crossed you will like the web-site and what we are about and if you have any optical or ocular queries, please contact us or call in to either shop at your convenience.

A new practice video is in production and we’ll get it online as soon as possible.

We look forward to seeing you soon. New videos on how to insert and remove contact lenses are now on the new to contact lenses page. To watch click here


Hello - welcome to our web site.

“We are in the process of doing a new video about our practices and hope to bring it to you as soon as possible.

New glasses styles come into the shops often. Why not pop in and take a look.”
