Welcome

We are an independent optical outlet with our own laboratory, supplying quality branded frames and lenses at factory direct prices.

We believe that everyone has the right to buy quality glasses at fair prices.

Why pay more?

Our factory direct prices include top quality branded frames and lenses, covered by the manufacturers guarantee.

Where’s the catch? Well, there isn’t one!

We own our own optical laboratory and we do not have to cover optometrists’ salaries and overheads, so you can save a fortune on your next pair of quality glasses.

Great reglazing service offered. You can pop in and get your lenses measured, keep hold of your glasses and take them back to have the new lenses fitted once they are available. Very good prices too.

What an amazing experience it was getting my glasses from there. Ash, his wife and Martyn were all Amazing !!! Never felt so welcome in any opticians and I've been wearing glasses for over 25... years. All of them been extremely helpful and patience with me. It took me hours to choose the pair I really like (I can be fussy at time) but not for a second I felt like they had enough of me ? They really recommend what's best for you not what's the price tags says and they will go above and beyond to make sure the client is 100% happy.I definitely will go there again and will recommend to my friends. Thank you all of you for your help, I'm very happy with both pairs of my glasses ????read more
