Good news! Monoptics is open. Our initial opening times will be 10:30-14:00 on Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday. We hope to extend hours very soon.

Monoptics is now making plans to re-open full time. In the meantime we are preparing the practice so both our staff and patients will be secure and safe. As you would expect the new routines will have to be adjusted.

Our patients can be assured that we will adhere by the social distancing practices and that hygiene regulations will be maximised.

The practice has sourced PPE equipment and will be worn by the staff at all times. All surfaces around the reception area will be disinfected, as will spectacle frames according to the new guidelines.

For your convenience and safety, we would strongly encourage patients to pre-book an appointment in the vast majority of cases. We will minimise the number of patients in the store at any one time so as to keep the surroundings safe.

We hope all the measures we are taking will reassure our patients that we take their well-being extremely seriously.

We truly hope that we can see you all very soon and continue to provide excellent and safe eyecare.

We will update this page regularly to keep you informed.

Best wishes from all the team at Monoptics

Shine is a superb optician, it is always a pleasure to go for an eye test. Her staff are friendly, helpful and... multi-lingual. There is a good range of frames and great care is taken to ensure good choice and good fit. The appointments and reminders system works well. Highly recommended.read more

Wonderful first experience at Monoptics. Reasonable cost of an eye test which was a good start. Then the eye test... itself was really informative and a pleasant experience (let’s face it it can normally be slightly intrusive and or awkward) but not here. Overall, really friendly place and a really nice local to go to! Would highly recommend.read more

Visited with my daughter to get her eyes checked and what a fantastically good experience. The staff were friendly and... courteous and Shine the optician was brilliant! She went out of her way to be kind to a nervous patient and to explain how the eyes worked, what the issues were and what to do if any follow-up was needed. Shine also saved us money too by pointing out this particular test was free under a new "instead of visiting an A&E" protocol. A really nice surprise at how good Monoptics is - highly recommended - thanks guys!read more

I have been in customer service for years including managing optical practises, I believe that professionalism and... quality products only takes you half the way. This is one of those places you want to return to because you feel welcomed and looked after. Having moved recently in the area, I popped in to ask for replacement lenses for my beloved sunglasses, the staff was very friendly and informative and they helped my through the process the best they could. I went back a week later to collect my new lenses and I met Shine the optician, she made sure I was happy with my purchase, but most importantly, I did not feel like I was in a a conveyor belt at the end of its run. I am looking forward to return for my annual check up, I think I have found my local optician.read more

This place is amazing! I got my glasses from here and they really looked after me. I didn't really know what suited me... and the assistant helped me pick some really nice frames, that I would never have thought to try if she hadn't suggested them. Not only a friendly place, they really made me feel like I was in good hands and nothing was too much. Top eye test too, and I can see!! Will recommend! Thank you 🙂read more

A través de una amiga que reside en Londres me recomendó Monoptics ya que ella es una clienta habitual y aprovechando mi estancia en Londres acudí a una cita. Shine es fantástica, simpática y muy profesional…también habla bastante español! Me hice la revisión y me llevé unas gafas nuevas que encantada con ellas.

Shine and her team run a professional friendly customer focussed operation. I have terrible eyesight and had a number of problems. Shine took time to test and talk to mean about my eye problems. She always looks to solitions and is on top of her profession skills wise. A lovely family business with excellent quality service and results. I can’t recommend Monoptics highly enough. The high street chains could never spend the time that it took to sort my vision out.
