As an independent business we can source any lens available on the UK market if you have a preference for a particular brand. If not, we often favour Seiko and Varilux lenses due to their high standards, quality and finish.

Eye Care

Measuring and correcting your eyesight to it’s full potential is only part of a regular thorough eye examination which monitors the health of your eyes and consequently your overall well being.

Some common signs of vision problems are obvious such as headaches or eyestrain. However many potentially sight threatening diseases do not show any early symptoms. Conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and diabetes. These can all be detected by regular eye examinations.

We use state of the art equipment to monitor the health of your eyes. Retinal Photography gives us a digital image of your eye which can be stored and used to monitor your eye’s health at future visits.

All our optometrists are not only qualified and GOC registered but also are fully accredited to provide Locally Enhanced Community eyecare, to assist our GP and Hospital Eye Service colleagues.

  • I would recommend this business

Switched to Filey Opticians a couple of months ago, and got two new pairs of glasses, one is called "Occupational" and these are excellent for my computing work. The "Normal" ones are also very good, I've really benefited from the combination of the two, especially as I have had my cataracts replaced so focusing is difficult. Both pairs are varifocals and I'm extremely glad I went to Filey Opticians. They really make you feel looked after, and the end result is that I'm very pleased with my specs.

Filey Opticians is second to none , they sorted my prescription and lenses out when Specsavers made a total hash of the job.
Yesterday they gave me an emergency appointment and quicky diagnosed a new eye condition, they are Super Proffesional and efficient .I have total confidence in them and would highly recommend them.

Changing your optician is not quite as hard as changing your bank but it is close. I was finally messed around one too many time by my local Specsavers and decided to give Filey Opticians a go having heard good reports about them. I was not disappointed. From the initial phone I could see that this was going to be a different experience. They gave me an early appointment and confirmed my current prescription with Specsavers. The eye exam was carried out by Sharon one of the owners; she was friendly and efficient and ran through my options clearly. I am certainly pleased I made the move; lenses have arrived now, all marked up and options noted.
