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

Discover what Armitage Opticians can do for you

‘Visionary’ eyecare!

First and foremost, our priority is offering qualified, expert and consistent eyecare, to reassure clients their eyesight and vision are safe in our hands.   

We are committed to a continuous programme of technology investment, again with the focus being on early detection and exceptional eyecare.

Our approach is to offer longer eye examinations – 45 minutes – to differentiate us from the multiples, giving us every opportunity to really understand a clients lifestyle and any vision challenges they may have and then create a tailored set of eyewear solutions for their individual requirements.

Eyewear brands and styling service

Everyone wants to look and feel good in their glasses. Our trained staff offer exceptional frame and style advice to ensure a client leaves their appointment knowing they have received a very personal and feel fantastic in their glasses.

Contact lens and free contact lens trials

Our role is to reassure those who would like to try contact lens, whether for nights out, a special event or for everyday wear. Our youngest contact lens wearer is just 8 so our training is key to be able to offer the full range of options.
