Letter from Vision Aid Overseas

We have just received this lovely letter from vision aid Overseas and would like to thank everyone for glasses and money donated

Thank you for supporting Vision Aid Overseas!

I am writing to say a big THANK YOU for the spectacles that you recently sent to Vision Aid Overseas. Your support will help us to fight poverty by providing eye care services to people in developing countries who are unnecessarily visually impaired because of poor eye sight.

Vision Aid Overseas is fighting poverty in six countries in Africa by transforming access to eye care. Last year we reached 48,459 patients. However, 10% of the world’s population are still unnecessarily visually impaired because they do not have spectacles.

In the UK, it is extremely easy to take good sight for granted because of the vast number of optical professionals who work on our high streets. In many parts of the world the story could not be more different. Spectacles are only available to the privileged few and most people cannot afford any eye care.

Thank you again for your support and if you would like any more information about Vision Aid Overseas please do not hesitate to contact us.

Very best wishes,

Vision Aid Overseas

Wear a work of Art Every Day!

We know how important it is to our discerning customers to be able to wear stylish eyewear, which is why we wanted you to know about the launch of our exclusive Ronit Furst Range.



Internationally renowned ceramicist Ronit Furst started painting her own glasses when she decided that she was unable to find anything new or exciting wherever she looked. The results caused such a stir that she decided to launch her own range with stunning results.
We are proud to add Ronit Furst to our portfolio. This is a must see range!

National Opticians Awards 2014 – Runners up!

We would like to thank everyone for their Good Luck messages sent before the National Optician Awards.

This was not to be our year but we were still delighted to be runners up in both The Independent Practice and Technology Practice, in the splendour of London Park Lane Hilton.

It was an amazing night to share with some of our Team; a true privilege to be there! Most important of all was the fantastic fund raising carried out in aid of “The Blind Veterans”, a truly worthy cause. The awards were presented by TV personality impressionist Jon Culshaw whose hilarious rendition made it seem as though the awards were being presented by a host of personalities!

Congratulations to all the award winners, especially to our friends from Eyeworks London who took the New Venture Award. Really well done!
Thanks again to all our loyal patients and staff


A massive big thank you to all our loyal patients whose constant support and recommendations have seen us again nominated for the National Optician Awards. We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to our wonderful staff for their constant enthusiasm and professionalism.

It would be a tall order to win a third award, but even being shortlisted is a wonderful feeling. Six of the team make the journey to Park Lane Hilton on April 12th and win or lose we aim to enjoy it! We will keep you posted.
