Stepper have light weight frames that suit all face shapes and sizes. They have a frame to suit every age range from modern to traditional.

Hoya Enroute Pro -These lenses are simply awesome! They’re great for driving and cut out all glare from bright headlights. You can even wear them through the day and with a contrast enhancing filter, your colour perception and contrast are both enhanced.

It’s a professional and friendly environment where we can really build personal relationships with our clients. Because we have a wide lens catalogue, we can offer many options to really make a difference to patient lives and notice it. It’s a great place to work for career growth too!

Vanni OcchialiI love the different range of colours and that they are so light and versatile.

 Hoya Lifestyle 3 – Sitting in the middle of the varifocal lenses, it ticks most of the boxes in terms of affordability, being partially tailored and can suit every patient’s needs. It’s a great everyday lens.

The level of customer service we deliver patients coming through the door.

 Etnia Barcelona I really like the stunning selection of colourful frames

Myself  – A truly bespoke lens that helps patients with complex prescriptions who have always struggled with the cosmetic side of their spectacles. Finally a lens for all complex prescriptions enabling them to see clearly.

Being able to meet new patients and build relationships with existing clients. It’s a really joyful experience to see how our advice and care improves the lives of our clients. Looking after our clients is at the heart of everything we do

Keeping fit, reading and going on long walks

Our independent approach enables us to put together a highly tailored solution – but it’s the way we listen that really delivers peace of mind for all your vision needs.

We're in this for the long term

Established in the 1960s and based in Heckmondwike, we are an independent opticians giving you great value in eye care and a unique alternative to the high street chains. Everything we do has always been driven by offering a truly personal individual experience. We aim to exceed your expectations and ensure you leave our practice with confidence in your frames and faith in your opticians.

We are committed to investing in the best technology

At Armitage Opticians Heckmondwike  we offer hospital grade technology that enables us to analyse the health of your eyes in more detail. Digital Retinal Photography enables us to look at your eyes with great clarity and is available at no additional cost as part of your next eye test. Our facilities also include an OCT scan at additional cost – so we can detect serious eye conditions up to five years earlier than a normal test.

After many years of visiting various opticians on the High Street I am so pleased that I decided to try a local one.
