From Our Website

At Barracloughs we understand that quality and service really do matter, which is why you will find fully qualified Ophthalmic and Dispensing Opticians at all of our seven practices across the East Sussex coast. We are independent Opticians who have been caring for eyes for over 60 years. Established in 1957 by Frank Barraclough in Norman Road, St. Leonards and later joined by Peter Stiles, we gained a reputation founded on expertise combined with a kind and helpful manner. Investing in the latest technology and equipment such as Retinal Photography and Retinal Scanning and keeping the practices modern and up to date has all helped in passing the 60 year milestone.

As we get older, our ability to hear begins to change. This change in hearing is a gradual process and it takes time for people to become aware of the impact it has on their lives and their loved ones. Especially as it is often the case that someone may struggle to hear certain sounds, but are still able to hear others perfectly well. You should look after your hearing in the same way you look after your eyes. We recommend an annual hearing health check for anyone over the age of 50 and every two years for the under 50s.

The Barracloughs team are waiting for you. Working for an opticians can be a varied and exciting career. No two days are the same, dealing with a very diverse audience, from children to seniors of all walks of life. You'll notice there are a number of different skill levels accommodated for at Barracloughs, from those completely new to the world of optics, to those who have been qualified for many, many years. Reception duties, such as welcoming customers by greeting them in person or over the telephone, answering enquiries, booking in appointments, taking payments and ordering contact lenses and some other supplies.

At Barracloughs we believe in providing the best sun protection for your eyes which is why we supply only the highest quality sunglass frames and lenes from premium suppliers such as Rodenstock and Maui Jim. Prescription sunglasses and ColorMatic self-tinting lenses are always available. Maui Jim eyewear is recommended worldwide, with lenses blocking 100% of all harmful UV rays, protecting your eyes from damage and long-term health risks. Sunglasses that don't provide UV protection can actually cause more damage because they shade the eye, causing the pupil to dilate and allow in more UV rays.
