About Us – The Family Opticians

Walk down any high street in Britain and you will find that most optical practices are owned by large corporations or multiple groups. We’re not. Pike Opticians is a truly independent optical practice.

Our directors (registered opticians John and Catherine Pike) are in attendance and we only employ qualified staff to carry out eye examinations and dispensing. All of our opticians are registered with the General Optical Council and undertake continuing education courses to make sure their skills are kept up to date.

Independent and Local Since 1985

Our independence has many advantages. We’re free to order optical products from a myriad of suppliers, enabling us to constantly update our range of frames and lenses. Most spectacle orders are processed in-house and this ensures that we have direct control over the quality of the finished goods. Most importantly of all, being independent means that we get to know most of our clients personally. We learn their optical history, the style of frame which suits them best and even how their children are getting on at school!

Although we pride ourselves in offering the very latest technology, a wide and varied choice of products and highly competitive pricing, we always remember that each client is an individual, not a number. Call in to see us and you’ll discover that the only old-fashioned thing about us is our personal service and professional advice.
