Are we the right opticians for you?


We are opticians in Leicester and Irthlingborough with a passion to give you the highest standard of eye care. How? By setting aside plenty of time and listening to what you have to tell us. You’ll see the same optometrist each time and we take up to 45 minutes for eye examinations.

We specialise in patients with more complex requirements both in the health of their eyes and complicated glasses prescriptions. We also offer styling consultations where we advise you on the latest eyewear trends and what would make you look great. 

Whatever your needs, eyecare or eyewear, get in touch and find out how we can help.

Orthokeratology and the noble art

The short sighted pugilist. It's amazing where an idle chat over the garden fence can lead! One murky afternoon last November while talking to a neighbour, Tom, the conversation got around to his favourite sport – he's a keen boxer. He knew that I'm an optometrist and...
