Niche Eyewear, Exceptional Eyecare

If you want the cheapest spectacles, bland unexciting frames and a conveyor belt experience, then this practice is not for you.

My name is Christopher Young. I started working in this practice in October 1986, and I bought it 18 months later. My philosophy at the time was to offer every client the same care and attention that I would give to a close family member. 

That philosophy holds true to this day. 

I would only offer my parents, wife and children the best examination with the most modern equipment, and I would only want them to wear the best frames and lenses suitable for their lifestyle and their budget.

We treat our clients as if they are cherished family members and we apply these values to you.  

So, if you enjoy quality, value for money, individual products delivered by a team who care and are dedicated to making sure that they are recommending they most appropriate solution for your lifestyle and comfort, then you have come to the right place.

Whilst the major High Street chains offer a 'bums-on-seats' business model, we take the time to offer a complete eyecare and eyewear experience. Our state-of-the-art equipment enable us to offer you the reassurance that we have detected and dealt with any potential sight threatening conditions, whilst our eclectic range of niche eyewear allows you to express your true self!

We look forward to welcoming you to our family. If you would like to have a look inside the practice before you arrive, please CLICK HERE, and you can review our professional fees by clicking HERE.

If you have specific information or communication support needs, please let us know in advance, and we will do our best to meet them.
