Take another look

Established in 1939, we have provided eye care to Midsomer Norton and its environs for over 75 years.

Being completely independent, we have freedom to choose and stock any make or type of frame, spectacle lens or contact lens, giving our patients the benefit of the widest possible choice. This together with good, unhurried service and sound professional advice is our philosophy.
