Since those early days in 1919 when eye examinations took place in the front room of a house in Castleford the objectives have always been the same - to provide the highest standards of professional eye care to the community. Over the last 85 years the company has grown into a strong group of 13 practices that serves the needs of its patients in West, South and North Yorkshire without loosing sight of its primary aim.

Moorhouse Opticians is a family business, established in 1919. We are your local independent opticians in the Central Yorkshire area. We believe in providing you with a good old fashioned customer service: our opticians take their time over every eye examination ensuring that every test is performed to the highest standard. Our friendly staff will help you choose from a wide range of frames, from budget to designer brands, sunglasses or contact lenses and also advise on our extensive range of fantastic lenses.


We rely on our sight in all aspects of daily life and therefore an eye examination is essential to monitor eye health and maintain the best vision possible. We strive to provide the most thorough eye examinations using the latest technology and equipment so you, the patient, have full confidence in our findings and recommended management. During our comprehensive eye examinations, we have a general routine we perform for every patient, but as we like to treat every patient as an individual, the optician will tailor the examination accordingly.


Your eyes are an important part of your health. There are many things you can do to keep them healthy and make sure you are seeing your best. Follow these simple steps for maintaining healthy eyes well into your golden years. You might think your vision is fine or that your eyes are healthy, but visiting your eye care professional for a comprehensive eye exam is the only way to really be sure. When it comes to common vision problems, some people don't realize they could see better with glasses or contact lenses.
