Experience the Armitage Difference:

Where Your Vision Meets Our Passion

Hello there, I’m Sohail Khan, the founder of Armitage Opticians. But more than that, I’m someone who’s been on a mission to transform the eyecare industry. I’ve seen the gaps, felt the frustrations, and most importantly, I’ve listened to stories – stories of individuals like you who deserve so much more from their eyecare experience.

Why Armitage Opticians Stands Out:

Listen & Understand:

At Armitage, you're never just another name on our appointment list. We value the time spent with you, ensuring every moment is about understanding your unique needs.

Look & Feel Great:

We believe glasses are an extension of your personality. Our goal? To help you find eyewear that not only enhances your vision but also elevates your style.

Lifetime Care:

Your vision is a lifelong journey, and we're here to be your trusted companion every step of the way.

Unique Method:

Our One-to-One Dispensing Styling experience is more than just a process; it's a commitment to ensuring you love what you wear and feel great doing so.

Trusted, Friendly Experts:

Our team, handpicked and mentored by me, embodies professionalism, friendliness, and expertise. We're here not just to serve but to build lasting relationships.

The Armitage Promise:

Your eyewear journey with us is unlike any other. Here’s our commitment to you:

Guided Use:

We offer comprehensive guidance, ensuring your glasses are a perfect blend of style and functionality.

Personalised Attention:

Every consultation is tailored, focusing on understanding and prioritising your unique needs.

Stylish & Durable Eyewear:

We promise eyewear that's in sync with your style, built to last, and feels great to wear.

Tailored Experience:

We invest time in getting to know you, your lifestyle, and your preferences. It's not just about a purchase; it's about making a valued investment in yourself.

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

A Personal Note from Sohail:

Over the years, I’ve come to realise that eyecare is more than just a profession; it’s a calling. It’s about building trust, understanding stories, and most importantly, making a difference. At Armitage Opticians, you’re not just getting glasses; you’re becoming a part of a community, a family. And as the founder, I promise you this: I’m personally invested in ensuring you receive nothing short of exceptional. Because you deserve it.

So, if you’re ready to experience eyecare like never before, I invite you to step into Armitage Opticians. Let’s embark on this visionary journey together.

Warm regards, Sohail Khan Founder & Visionary, Armitage Opticians

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.
