About Us


As an independent Opticians and contact lens fitting practice, we know that choosing an Optician can be a difficult choice. We are passionate about both our profession and great customer service. This is why our patients are happy to recommend family and friends to our practice.
We have been providing fabulous eyecare for all in Chelmsford, Essex, and surrounding villages for over 30 years!


We are committed to the highest standards of clinical eye care. We see many patients who have been referred to us by the NHS, Hospitals, and Private Clinics. Some of our patients have come to our practice because of accurate diagnosis and treatment by experienced, qualified Optometrists are difficult to come by.

We have clinics for sight testing and contact lens fitting 6 days a week, all run by qualified Optometrists supported by our Dispensing Opticians and highly experienced Optical Assistants.
If you passing by, why not pop in and say hi, we may even make you a lovely hot drink of your choosing 😊.
Our Director, Ray Daniel, has always said Everyone who visits our practice should be well looked after. They should feel that they have been informed of what products are available and the costs involved.”

· Contact Lens aftercare & fitting

Home Visits
If you are unable to visit the practice, we can come to you! We do hold the contract to perform eye examinations privately & under the NHS in the comfort of your own home.
We will bring a large selection of eyewear frames with us, however, if you know what you would like, please let us know and we shall bring these with us.
What prescription Lenses, plastic, glass ?
We have the latest lens materials to choose from, including thinner and lighter lenses, and all with the latest anti-reflection and scratch-resistant coatings. Not all lenses are the same; we often recommend branded lenses, like Zeiss, Kodak, Rodenstock, Nikon, and Essilor lenses for the best coatings and durability.
What else do we do?
We are heavily involved with Broomfield Hospital, Primary Eyecare and the Essex LOC in providing various schemes. This helps hospitals free up acute appointments, reduce waiting times, and enable patients to be seen at our practice in Chelmer Village at their own convenience.
We are on one level and all rooms are wheelchair friendly.
There is plenty of free non-restrictive parking and designated disabled bays available.
We do have the contracts for Minor Eye Condition Services (MECS), Children’s Diagnostic Vision Scheme, Glaucoma Reading Scheme and the Post Operative Cataract Service.
We work collectively with Moorfield Eye Hospital, Ophthalmologists at Springfield Hospital and SpaMedica, Local GPS and their surgeries and the School Vision Service. These are all professionals that we receive regular referrals from.
