About our practice

“We wanted to make things better”

So how do we do that? When you visit our practice, we think you’ll notice the differences:

A relaxed environment

We start with the little things: a warm welcome, a quiet, spacious waiting room, and a relaxing ambience… Little things that make a world of difference.

Your eye examination will be different too. More thorough. And more relaxed. You won’t be hurried in or out; your appointment will take as long as we need.

After your eye test, we’ll guide you through our range of glasses and contact lenses. We’re always happy to give you an objective opinion on which styles suit you best and there are certainly plenty to choose from.

Clinical expertise

Andrew Spybey and Adam Holliday are both registered with the General Optical Council and are among the most experienced opticians in the region.

This combination of clinical expertise, traditional service standards and the most specialist optical and imaging equipment gives you the very best level of eyecare.


You don’t just need the right advice and the right prescription; it’s important to know that your eyes are healthy. Our OCT imaging gives us an incredibly detailed 3D image of your eyes that will give you the reassurance that your eyes are healthy. It also shows us if there are any problems or signs of future deterioration, long before they’d show up in a standard eye examination.

“Providing quality services and products is central to our ethos, but quality doesn’t mean expensive.”

Come and see for yourself: you’ll find beautiful eye wear, for every budget. Our selection includes superb designer frames, in a range of prices.

You’re welcome to pop in and take a look before you book your appointment. Or, if you prefer, give us a call so we can talk you through our range and prices.

We provide the same exemplary service to all our patients: private, NHS and eyeplan scheme members.
