Customer Testimonials

Wonderful experience at this opticians. Staff are very knowledgeable. Good range of designer frames. Highly recommend


I popped by one afternoon last week to explore the various selection of glasses, i was amazed when a colleague called Sofina approached me in a friendly manner asking if i need any help, i gave her a review on my interest and she took that into great consideration, especially after mentioning the frame i wanted was rare. She picked out two, and one out the other stood out for me. Thanks to her, i walked out feeling pleasant, she went out her to way to find me the perfect pair which appealed to me and were the perfect shape for my head. Overall, my experience at eye imporium was 10/10, and would definitely recommend to those who are looking for affordable specs. Thank you again sofina and staff for making me feel pretty in glasses. Hope to see you soon!


I have recently visited the store, I was just browsing looking for something suit me. The staff were very friendly and professional. Helped me to find something I was looking for. I will definitely come soon to buy my glasses.
staff who helped me kasia and sofi very helpful.
Definitely will recommend to family and friends.


I recently changed opticians and could not be happier. The service was professional and the staff were so welcoming and helpful. Being a family-run company means you are really looked after. The optician did not rush through the eye test and spent time giving me advice on which pair of glasses I should get. Highly recommend!

From Our Website

Back to the office of switching styles? View our wide selection of prescription & non prescription glasses frames for men & women. Eye Emporium, Open Eye and John High are independent opticians, contact lens specialists, and qualified audiologists operating in London and Kent since 1996. Our vision is to provide world class clinical standards and unrivalled customer care. Our hand-picked clinicians take the time to understand their patients' individual needs, offering a highly focused and professional optical and audiology service.


Our John High practices offer an exceptional hearing service, which encompasses a comprehensive hearing assessment, correction and aftercare. Our hearing test is performed by our expert audiologist with the latest technology available. With sound constantly around us, hearing loss can affect the way we carry out daily tasks and activities. Our audiology service is the perfect opportunity to see a hearing specialist and discuss any concerns you may have about hearing loss. Whether it's you experiencing hearing difficulties, a family member or a friend, we offer a tailored service for your hearing needs.


We are an authorised designer glasses and sunglasses retailer in the UK, stocking only 100% authentic products. All our frames come with original case and luxury cloth. Buy with confidence on our website, with secure online payment. If you opt for prescription glasses or sunglasses, consider booking an eye test before making your purchase, to ensure that your prescription is up-to-date.


Sunglasses represent the perfect balance between fashion and function. A good pair of sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun and its dangerous UVA/B rays. For further comfort and protection, polarised sunglasses help reduce glare and allow your eyes and face to stay relaxed when exposed to the light. You can also order prescription sunglasses, which correct any vision problems and guarantee a 20/20 vision. Besides their protective and corrective function, sunglasses are key to enhance style and personality.
