We have been serving the people of the Tyne Valley, as a family, since 1946 when my Grandfather opened our first practice in Hexham.  In all that time we have provided an uninterrupted service, come what may.  In 2020 with the onset of the Coronavirus we were forced to close our doors to routine appointments for the first time in 74 years.  We are still available for emergency eye problems (eg sudden loss of vision, broken glasses etc) by ringing us on 01434 603 862.  In the first instance we will talk through your problem over the phone but, if a face to face meeting is required, we will arrange an appointment.


This website has been setup so our loyal patients can still order their contact lenses off us without having to come in, and we will post them to you.  We still have our main website at

Good luck and hopefully see you all soon!

Chris Steven.
