Our History

The practice was established by Mr Howard Peters and his brother in 1965. In 1990 the practice was taken over by Julie Gazey. It thrived by offering professional, fully comprehensive eye tests, coupled with a complete range of spectacle frames and contact lenses. It was and still is regarded by the patients and local doctors as a friendly, local practice, serving all members of the community.

 In April 2019 Julie retired and the practice was transferred to the ownership of Mr. Vishal Thanki. Vishal has a wealth of experience in optics and is one of only a small number of Optometrists to have studied and qualified as an Optometrist, Dispensing Optician and Contact lens Specialist. With a passion to drive the practice forward he has the vision to introduce new equipment coupled with modern refractive techniques to this already well established opticians.
