We are not part of a big group and never will be, it's just us!
In an age when it's difficult to see the same person twice, we are proud of the fact that there have only been four consecutive optician-owners since Mr Knutton retired way back in 1952.

Our amazing Masunaga range is handmade in Japan using only the finest titanium and acetate. They've been making glasses since 1905 so they know a thing to two about eyewear.

Protecting your eyes from UV light is an essential part of your overall eye care.
UV blocking lenses help with visual comfort but are also beneficial in protecting the eye's structures from UV in the atmosphere.
Most researchers agree that there is a link between UV and cataract formation and possibly macular degeneration. If you have had cataract surgery, protecting the retina from UV is even more important as the clear intra-ocular lens implant lets much more light into the eye and onto the retina.
We can give you advice on all the options available. From beautiful sunglasses, to tinted lenses or transitions that change with the light.
Polarised lenses reduce surface reflections making glare from roads or water almost disappear providing an amazing clarity of vision.
In today's brave new world, screens are a big part of our everyday lives and with working from home on the increase, we are spending more time than ever on a computer.
We can provide expert advice on screen viewing including a range of multifocal lenses specially made to make your computer clear and comfortable, reducing headaches and eyestrain.
We can also advise on eyewear for other bespoke distances like playing a musical instrument or reading music.
