Welcome to Armitage Opticians



To all our patients and their families,

I hope you and your family are keeping well and safe. Nobody knows what the next few weeks and months will bring so I want to tell you what we’re going to be doing to ensure we can continue to take care of our patients at Armitage Opticians.

At Armitage Opticians, we have always put out patients first – With this view and recent Government guidance we will be closing the practice until 30th April. We are operating a telephone and email only service so we can protect our patients and incredible team of staff. We are taking every possible measure to ensure Armitage Opticians remains a safe space for all. An important part of this is restricting the number of people who come into the practice.

Until further notice, we will be offering only emergency eye appointments with our optometrist and dispensing opticians. So if you are simply making an appointment for a routine checkup then we ask that you postpone this until normal service has been resumed. If however you are having problems with your vision, have lost your glasses or any other situation where you need our help, we will do everything possible to ensure we are here to take care of you.

As NHS contract holders we are designated key workers and so will be available for emergencies on an appointment only basis. There will be a telephone appointment first with the optometrist in order to review your symptoms which can then be escalated into an emergency face to face appointment if necessary.

Emergency face-to-face appointments will be arranged in the case of:

  • Sudden loss of vision

  • Red, painful eye

  • Contact lens related emergencies

If you have ordered glasses or contact lenses, be assured that our labs are still working and your glasses or contact lenses will be ready in time. We will call you to advise you that they are ready, and we will organise a delivery for you.

Should you need spare glasses, repairs, contact lenses or simply professional advice, then please contact us either via email ( or telephone (01924 403617) and we will do our best to help. Our emergency number is 07570114205.

We are available for telephone consultations Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm on 01924 403617. 

Armitage Opticians are a community Opticians – if any of our vulnerable patients need any non-optical services at this difficult time, our staff are working from home and are available to help you with whatever it is that you may need. Give us a call and we will do our best to help you.
By taking these steps now, I am confident that whatever the future brings we will be able to continue to provide the high standards of service you have always received. All of our staff will remain employed throughout this crisis and we look forward to welcoming you back into the store in better times.

With my best wishes,
Stay safe and well
Sohail Khan

Hello & Welcome

Among many positives, here are 3 good reasons to visit us

1) Personal Service – No more being treated like you’re just a number.

You are welcome to pop in at any time. We are a small team of friendly, welcoming, real people here to help. You can call us and have a conversation or come in and have the tour. We’re actually in an house which is quite a striking building – but you’ll love the environment it creates – relaxing and grand. We can give you an overview of our frame styles and answer any questions you may have. It’s simple; we offer straight forward, professional advice.

There is no charge for your eyewear styling consultation. (And there is no pressure, and no obligation.)

We make going to the opticians a friendly, positive experience. Don’t be treated like another number.  You are never rushed during the eye test or when choosing your glasses. It’s all relaxed. We only see a limited number of people, so you will always get the time to ask any questions and we make sure you are cared for.​

2) Renowned, professional expertise.

When it comes to choosing glasses we offer a special Eyewear Styling Consultation. This eliminates the confusion in choosing glasses. We take the time to find out what problems you have had with glasses and vision in the past and take the time to find glasses that suit you and your lifestyle. Our eyewear specialists not only address the technical side of correcting your vision, we also use our years of experience to make your eyewear work with your personal sense of style. No matter what your preferences are we will make sure you walk out with glasses that suit and fit you perfectly.

3) Expert Care & Niche Eyewear

We have invested into the latest optical technology in order to deliver an exceptional quality of eyecare. Our lead optometrist has conducted over 10,000 sight tests so rest assured no matter what your concerns are, we can help. A lot of our clients are professionals themselves and they choose Armitage Opticians because they want to see an expert. They want to see someone they have confidence in and they want to get it right.

The reason we take 30 minutes for a sight test is not just about the technical bits of doing an eye exam. You can do an eye test in 15 minutes and that is what most places do. But the extra time we spend with you means we can give you better advice and recommendations.

We take more time to find out about YOU, so you can tell us what you really want, what your preferences are, how you use your eyes, what type of work you do etc. And that means you’ll get effective advice and solutions because it is tailored to you.
