Dove & Conway

Fully Independent, Family Run Opticians in Bicester. 

Who are Kathryn & Michelle ?

We are both Optometrists.



We are trained and experienced in every part of caring for your eyes, contact lenses or glasses.


We live in Bicester 


We want to see a balance between the positive parts of the new development and supporting small local businesses. 



We believe in taking time to get to know you.


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 giving you time with fully trained dispensers and experienced professionals, you can trust that all parts of the exam have been done to a professional and high quality standard.


We are dedicated to prevention of eye disease at an early stage and making the eye exam a relaxed & friendly experience.



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 look beyond glasses & contact lens sales


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 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 needs you have and the type of visual 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. 

 Including BJ Conway Opticians


Mr Conway looked after the eyes of Bicester residents for over 40 years, and we are proud that he decided to trust us with his patients when he decided to retire. We worked with him for over a year on discussing the purchase. This way we know his style and values match ours well, and he could feel confident enough that we would look after his patients.
