Independent optician that is one of the few family-run practices in the UK. We will not hurry you and offer lots of time, not only when you choose your glasses, but also in the eye test. We take a minimum of 30 minutes for an eye test and often, 40 minutes is the norm. We stock designer frames, are free to order any lens types we need (many of the larger High Street 'shopticians' are restricted in what they can supply) and have digital eye scanning facilities to ensure that we see everything in and below the surface of your eyes.

Over two decades, the husband-and-wife duo Claudia and Bish Ashleigh and their expert team have become renowned for offering one of the most innovative and bespoke opticians services across Hampshire. Ashleigh Sight Care has served the local Hampshire community since 1999, when Claudia opened the doors of our first practice in Southampton. As a pioneering optometrist, she had grown frustrated with the substandard services she observed in High Street chain opticians and, instead, set out to offer exceptional eye care by investing in the very best optical talent and technology.
Dry eye syndrome is a common condition in which your eyes fail to produce enough high quality tears to keep themselves adequately lubricated. Recent research suggests that up to two thirds of British people will suffer from the syndrome at some point in their lives. Symptoms vary from person to person, but typically your eyes might feel gritty, irritated, red and/or dry and your vision may become blurred. These discomforts can be exacerbated if you regularly wear contact lenses, if you live in a dry climate or if you work long hours in front of a computer screen which reduces your blink rate.
Did you know that your child absorbs up to 80% of their learning through their eyes? Yet shockingly up to a million British children head into the classroom with an undiagnosed vision problem that could negatively impact their educational and social potential. As your child grows their eyes go through a period of rapid development, making them particularly susceptible to contracting eye conditions such as squints, lazy eye or refractive errors. Often your child will be unaware that an issue with their vision is impacting their performance, yet these common issues could affect their reading attainment, coordination and social confidence in the classroom and beyond.
At Ashleigh Sight Care, your comprehensive eye examination is completely tailored around your personal needs and concerns. Typically your examination will last up to 40 minutes, giving us the time to get to know you and your unique visual requirements, and to carry out a thorough assessment of your eye health. We will take as long as is needed to ensure that we obtain as complete a picture of your eye health as possible, so allow plenty of time for this when you make your appointment. All our practices use up to date technology to check your eyesight, eye health, testing for changes to your prescription, your eye coordination and (when needed) your peripheral vision.
