Community Optical Practice, focusing on Service, Healthcare, Fashionable eyewear, Personalised service and care.
We always do our best to get things right first time, but even if you need a little extra help or need to come back and see us again, we make sure that you are happy with your experience and choices.
We are trained and experienced in every part of caring for your eyes, contact lenses or glasses.
We want to see a balance between the positive parts of the new development and supporting small local businesses.
This is why we have chosen to run the business as a Fully Independent Optician rather than part of a multiple or small group.
Economically it is common in retail and sales based practices to keep professional time to a minimum, using unregistered non professional staff for many of the tasks.
Here, by seeing fully trained and experienced professionals through the whole visit, you can trust that all parts of the exam have been done to a professional and high quality standard.
You will always get the best results when the eye exam is tailored to you and your needs. Being a small healthcare based family business allows the time and freedom to do this well.
We are experienced in finding the correct fit and lens options for you with glasses or contact lenses, or discuss surgery where appropriate.
We also routinely investigate lifestyle or occupational causes of symptoms, so that our advice can be personalised to you.
However we also go beyond that and take a Holistic ( in this context meaning taking the whole body into account) and Behavioural approach.
This means that we look at eye health and symptoms in relation to the health of the whole mind and body and pay a lot of attention to the type of tasks that you want to perform.
Why choose us?
Being a small family business we can offer flexibility, a more individual approach, and if you do chose from our glasses range, you can know that you have chosen them without feeling pressured or limited to a "One size fits all" approach.
We offer everything from Value options through to Top Quality and Personalised designs, so can help you whatever your budget. We include Anti Scratch & Anti-Glare as stanard, and can offer lenses that have a 2 year guarantee against scratching.
SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESSES AND COMMUNITY
We have lived in Bicester for some time, and want to help build and support businesses and groups in the town.
To do this, we try to buy what we can within Bicester and we offer a free advertising space in a local information folder that stays in our waiting area. If you are a local business and want to use this, please drop an advert up to A4 in size in to the shop. Businesses we know or that are recommended by or connected to our patients will get priority, but all local businesses are welcome.
We are a by appointment practice, as we tend to see specialist patients who may need a quiet space and our full attention.
This means sometimes the door may be shut unless we know you are visiting.
We are available 7 days a week by phone, email or facebook.
We are at the North end (NON Pedestrianised) of Sheep Street, opposite Broadribbs Cycles, next to The Angel and Bicester Dental Care.
