Armitage Opticians is not merely an Opticians; it's a haven where tradition meets innovation, and where every client is cherished as a unique individual.

Our Personal Journey:

Expertise and Passion

I, Sohail Khan, have personally tested over 10,000 eyes, mastering the art of Optometry to a level that allowed me to practice in Australia. The journey took a beautiful turn when I met Abra, who shared the same passion for Optics. Together, our combined expertise and shared vision blossomed into a mission to craft a unique experience for our clients. A journey that led us back to my roots, taking over the helm of Armitage Opticians in 2017, an establishment with a rich legacy spanning over 60 years. With our successful approach to eyewear and eye care, we’ve now grown to 5 practices across the North West serving over 7,000 clients each year.
