Help and advice with costs

Some people may not be aware that the NHS can help meet some or all of the costs towards eye examinations and/or prescription lenses. The groups included are wide-ranging. We hold a wide range of spectacles to suit all styles and budgets. You will be able to find something for all ages, whether it be men’s, women’s or children’s.


“We give all our patients equal care of the highest professional
standards, whether they be NHS or Private.”
