Services At Latimer Opticians

Family Eyecare:
It is important to have your children’s eyes examined on a regular basis.  Sight tests are always free for those under 16 (under 19 if in full time education).
Dyslexia is a common concern for many parents.  We can assess and treat Visual Learning Difficulties including (but not limited to) dyslexia.
It is never too early to start, so we provide care for pre-school age children.



Contact Lenses
We offer a comprehensive contact lens service, as with spectacles we can find the product to match your requirements


You are never under any obligation to have new frames. If the one you have is the one you love, then simply have new lenses fitted into that frame. We welcome prescriptions brought in from other opticians. You may be without your spectacles for a day or two, although very often we can arrange for the lenses to be cut to the shape of your frames without the need for them to be sent away. 


Latimer Opticians Ltd is an independent Optician.  We are not tied to one particular supplier, neither are we controlled by a far away head office. This enables us to offer the best possible pricing. We won’t advertise expensive gimmicks or special offers, just honest pricing. 
It is important that you are happy with your purchase, if there is a budget, we can help.  We pride ourselves on our flexibility and by judicious selection of lenses can match any price comparison.
If you would like to have the best possible product, but wish to spread the cost of your spectacles, we are able to help. 


Help with frame selection:

Choosing your spectacles can be a very difficult decision.  We will do all we can to help you feel comfortable with your choice.

The frames need to fit correctly and comfortably.
They must look and feel great.

We will be frank and honest however, if you would like a friend or family member to give their opinion, you are more than welcome to take some frames home. We have access to thousands of frames so, if we haven’t got quite the style in stock, we can get it for you!
