From Our Website

When you visit the optician, you want to feel valued, respected and like the team around you are genuinely interested in improving your visual experience. You'd like a great range of eyewear to choose from, an excellent level of service on every visit and unrivalled value for money - wouldn't you? You need look no further than Thornton & Wright Opticians. Our founding members Andrew Thornton and John Wright still work in the practice full time; you can look forward to their personal attention during your visit to us, as well as benefitting from the skills and expertise of our highly qualified and personable team.

Whether you have recently been to the opticians, or perhaps haven't had an eye exam in a little while, you will probably be familiar with many of the tests that are routinely carried out at every appointment. The back of your eye can display tiny but extremely important early warning signs of a variety of problems. These include eye conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration, as well as general health issues like high blood pressure, diabetes and even heart disease. Often these changes are evident in your eyes long before any other symptoms begin to show; for that reason it is essential to monitor the internal structures of your eyes regularly.

When the sun comes out, you reach for your sun cream and hat, and perhaps your sunglasses too if you're heading to the beach. But did you know that it is important to protect your eyes more consistently - not just when you're sunbathing - even if it looks a little cloudy! The sun's rays contain three types of UV: UVA, UVB and UVC. UVA and UVB can have serious effects on your eyes and vision over a prolonged period of time if your eyes aren't properly shielded against the rays. Photokeratitis is an example of a sun-induced condition, and is essentially sunburn of the eyes.

You want to take care of your eyes, and in doing so ensure that your vision remains as good as possible for as long as possible. But wouldn't it be nice if you could receive that excellent standard of eye care - as well as a range of exclusive benefits - all covered by manageable monthly payments? At Thornton & Wright Opticians, our eye care scheme Eyeplan is designed to do just that. For less than 10 per month, you can rest assured that your regular eye examinations and additional screening tests are all taken care of.

Choosing new eyewear is a big decision. You want options that will suit your circumstances and budget, while making you look and feel good too. Here at Thornton & Wright Opticians we believe that you should have the choice of some of the best spectacles available, which is why we stock an impressive range of frames featuring some of the world's best brands. You'll find frames from RayBan amongst our collection, as well as options from Silhouette and Giorgio Armani. In our opinion these are some of the best and strongest eyewear brands in the world, and all combine top quality with excellent design.

When it comes to your new eyewear, you want a frame design that you love - not just in the way it looks but in the way it makes you feel, too. However, your new lenses are just as important as the frames - after all, they will be responsible for improving your vision! We are one of just 25 practices in the UK known as Varilux 'Signature' opticians. We work with this world-leading lens brand to offer you some of the best optical lenses available, and are often able to access them sooner than they are released to the general market.
