About Us- Leicester

Our focus is you. We are passionate about giving you the service
you need to help you find the perfect eyewear!

Our Story

We were first established as opticians in Leicester in 1946 by Adrian Mattock. Since then we’ve looked after the eyes of over 38,000 patients! Adrian was succeeded by Jim Smith and then Alan took over in 2000. Since then we have worked at gradually improving and updating the practice to the point where we have the most up to date optical equipment in the form of the OCT scanner. We now specialise in more complex and challenging patients whether it be advanced eye examinations or more difficult spectacle problems. Alan is continually updating his knowledge by further training to stay right up to date with the latest research and practices.

Whilst you’re in our care, our friendly teams will always be ready to help you, whatever you might need. We’re all committed to giving our clients the best experience possible, and are always on hand to help you make important eyewear decisions.

At the Leicester practice you’ll find Alan, Marie, Gail and Marisha who will help you throughout your time with us.

We’ve recently been able to undertake some major alterations and now we have a much bigger, brighter space for you to explore our wide range of eyewear. This includes our sports vision range of motorbike goggles, cycling specs, swimming goggles and more – something that Alan understands very well as an avid motorsports and cycling fan himself!
